Monster in My Pocket

I was excited when I saw that Dwayne McDuffie had written the Monster in My Pocket comic. I never read it or bought the toys, but the premise is so ridiculous that it had to be fun to work on.

I chose the Monster and Vampire to draw. At first I thought it odd that the Monster's bolts are on his head instead of the more traditional neck placement, but then I realized that if you are sending an electric shock to reanimate a body, the brain is probably the best location.

Next Week's Topic: Dwayne McDuffie Tribute

Next week the Comics Art Alliance will be honoring a great talent that was taken from us too soon on February 21. Dwayne McDuffie was perhaps best known for his work on Justice League Unlimited, Ben 10, as well as his co-founding of the Milestone Universe, but he worked on so much more in his career.

For this theme contributors may submit drawings of any character (or characters)  Mr. McDuffie worked on, and that's a pretty extensive list. You can find a bibliography of his work at .

We start posting on Sunday.

Silver Surfer Snowball Fight by Jess Kirby

Really not that jazzed about the digital  colouring, but it is what it is I suppose.  If anyone feels like giving it a shot, I'll post the original.

"G Is For Grey Gargoyle" by Jess Kirby

Goofing off in PS a bit.  Didn't exactly get the look I was going for, but I'm not good at PS and I got bored with it.

CAA Extra: "Last Man Standing" by Joseph Salazar

This entry isn't part of the weekly topic, but it's a cool extra.

I received this tonight from a gentleman whose 10-year-old son discovered this blog and wanted to participate. He's a huge fan of war games, and he calls this piece "Last Man Standing". As you can see, the kid's got talent! I hope he enters more art in the future.

Thanks, Joseph and James!
