A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.

My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.

This definitely bears reblogging!

Here’s another behind-the-scenes look at my work on the comics for SALT by American Student Assistance. The top strip is a rough draft that includes the poem “Songs of Our Land” by Irish poet Frances Brown. Pete, a semi-regular cast member of #TwentySomethingProblems is in Ireland on a trip he’s longed to go on. The poem is supposed to represent this longing, but my “editor” didn’t quite get it, so the poem was left off. Below is a near-final version of the same strip without the poem. Does the strip with or without the poem?

 The final version of the strip can be seen here

No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your ‘religious freedom.’ If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.

Oil of No way.

Its no secret that ever since Yahoo purchased Tumblr our feeds have been getting hijacked by unwanted advertisements. In that time the ads have become mostly white noise to me since I don’t really know of any way to turn them off. But today I’ve found that I have no less than five separate ads for Oil of Olay, a common beauty product that I use the store-brand version of. What I want to know is this; are any men who are currently following me getting the same Olay ad-spam? Or is it just the women? And for the women following me, are you all getting the same ad-spam? Please do let me know because I’m very interested in finding out. Also, if anyone out there in Internet Land knows how to turn these damn things off, please do let me know. Thanks everyone!
