I wanted to do a quick and fun doodle for my dad for christmas. It’s his last year of eligibility to be voted into the Hall of Fame, and my 7 siblings have started quite the offensive to speak up and make a case for him, after 15 years of silence. some recent articles/interviews/petitions: here, here, here, etc.
I’m a bit of a black sheep in the family, as my professional sports knowledge is nil, and my athletic prowess is nonexistent. Most people are surprised to hear that my artistic side was actually fostered and encouraged by my Dad, but that’s just the way he’s always been with me.
I’m not smart enough to argue his career, his numbers, or to compare him to other players (I only know a few others), and I can only remember bits and pieces of his career. But I remember perfectly sitting in our art room in Georgia, tracing the outlines of our feet onto planks of wood, whittling sticks and bars of soap on the back porch, admiring my dad’s doodles that he would do of all our names, and carving our initials into trees as we tried to hunt bats with our BB guns.
I don’t know if he’ll get in the Hall, but… it really doesn’t matter to me.
It’s been ages since I last posted but I figured I would show you guys what I’ve sort of been working on. I’ve been posting pages more consistently lately so I’m sharing it around again. Hope you like it.
I got pretty carried away with this answer, and then when I finally finished I noticed that I can’t even find the original ask anymore. So you’re going to have to take my word that at some point someone asked me this question.
Also hi Minty I have a comic for you, it is made of slightly creepy dreams and friendship.
I was going to tack on my comic in the form of reblog but either way I want this on my blog because FRIENDSHIP
And that’s the end of Chapter 1! Thank you for sticking around for so long and sorry for being so late all the time. We’re busy and handsome people okay? These deadlines just hurt our skin.
As a gift, Vivi finished up three whole pages for the price of one, which is technically free! That’s almost no price at all! Except our contract with Satan. Anyway, my gift was this delectable fellow.
Okay everyone lean in. Here’s the plan for the next few weeks. We’re going to take two weeks off to get a headstart on the next chapter. In meantime, we’re reappropriating the short stories (the ones I mentioned would come out Friday) for the next two Mondays that will be about the larger world of the comic. We’ll reblog them here.
As always remember to reblog and tag this post so that more people can read the comic. I read every tag, including the blogger who wrote they shared my perverse and heated love for post tags. Also visit the main site, Pigment City! It’s always getting better, and by that I mean it’s rarely getting worse!
