Page 197 – Tag!

The battle continues, and family tag-team metamorphosis does as well.  Nothing quite like a dog, double-monkey-bat, t-rex axe cop.  I don’t even know what to call him at this point.

I’m excited that River City Ransom: Underground funded.  There is still under 24 hours left to help them reach stretch goals.  One thing I know about video games on KickStarter is that their finding goal is usually a bare minimum, so any added funding will expand the horizons of the game.

Well, my 3 year old step son Ezra is hanging out with me right now and asking me a ton of questions as I try to type this.  We just made a robot coloring book.  As he was coloring he said, “Ethan, life is hard.  Life is hard ’cause when you color you get out of the lines.”  I’m going to go ahead and end this blog entry now so I can soak up more deep thoughts.  Thanks for reading!

Page 192 – Cauber Helen

Introducing the alien king behind it all, Cauber Helen (pronounced Cobb-er Hell-en).  I remember when I designed this character, I really liked the design but was not really excited to draw it multiple times.  Part of the reason finising this book out became so work intensive.  Here is two of the first concepts I came up with for the character.  I pretty much went with the one that doesn’t look like a whale.

We’re heading into finale territory here!  I’m excited to finish this story out.

Page 184 – Bridal Party

I decided to use some of Malachai’s mispronunciations of bridal party terms, like “Bride’s Mates” and “Ring Berrier”.  Hopefully it is funny and not simply confusing.  Malachai is a seasoned Ring Berrier, he bore the ring at our brothers Noah’s and Isaiah’s weddings, and then he was ring berrier coach to my step son, Ezra at my wedding.

Alright Ezra, get it together.  THIS IS YOUR BIG MOMENT. -actually quote from Malachai at the wedding

 

And yes, Tom Nicolle is our dad.  The 72 year old father of kids ranging from me to Malachai.  If you have ever met my Dad he loves to talk about spiritual things, and so he will be officiating at Axe Cop’s wedding.

Well I am trying to get a lot done today, because tonight I am going to see Riff Trax Live: Starship Troopers!  Should be fun.
