Neither Min nor Koko had any notion of the white shadow following them. Though, Min did feel the hairs standing on the back of her neck.

The Kitty Cat Council blamed Min for loosing her Kitty.
Of course it was not Min's fault her Kitty was lost.
Even so, the Kitty Cat Council is not known for its rationality.

Min fell down, down, down and then a little sideways... then down again... then the other sideways... and finally down, down, down again.

Inside the tree Min was subject to undecided gravity.  Min would have to reorient herself as the situation permitted.

Min chased Slimey all the way to the scary tree. She wasn't even phased by the hole in the tree that looked like a mouth. In fact it was a mouth, but this didn't stop Min from diving in after her beloved kitty.

Zelda: Link to the Future





ZELDA: Link to the Future 
my zelda art and fan-fic on TUMBLR
Imagining Zelda and Link in the far future.

Far, far into the future, the surviving universe has spiraled into Chaos.
An interstellar war raged across the stars. When it was over, less than half the universe survived. Gonyn’Zull reigned unchallenged.
Zelda, the Queen of lost Hyrule, split the Triforce of Wisdom into eight fragments. She scattered them throughout the stars in order to save the last remaining Triforce from the clutches of the evil Gonyn’Zull. This was Zelda’s last act before she was assassinated.
The Royal Hyrulian Star Fleet fought bravely. Even Gonyn’Zull respected their art of war. But without the Queen, the RHSF was no match for the Dark Forces. They were utterly destroyed. Thus the Dark Empress has reigned unchallenged for a thousand years.
In a remote corner of a forgotten star system is a moon like no other. On this Moon of the Mystics there lives a boy, Link. His family killed, his entire race hunted and killed to extinction by Gonyn’Zull, only Link survives to be raised by the last of the wise sages. 
There is a prophecy… a thousand years have passed. Light must be restored to the surviving universe, or all must forever pass into darkness…

There are eleven pages so far.  Enjoy




UTAH MUSEUM OF CONTEMPARY ART, Between Panels Event



Had a great time last night at the UTAH MUSEUM OF CONTEMPARY ART, Between Panels Event. 
I've never drawn on the wall of nice museum in front a hundred plus somthing people before.  It was quite wonderful.  Thanks to Brandon Dayton for putting it all together.  

http://www.utahmoca.org/portfolio/between-panels-collaborative-exquisite-corpse-drawing-experience/

At first it was just a blank museum wall with prints of our comics...

Then the three sharpy beasts where unleashed and in a matter of hours the walls were filled with all sorts of sci fi dreams and stranger things.


thanks Utah Museum of Contemporary Art!!!

Jack and Sally


Jack and Sally

I'm glad these two got together:)
----------------------------------------------

I sense there's something in the wind
That feels like tragedy's at hand
And though I'd like to stand by him
Can't shake this feeling that I have
The worst is just around the bend

And does he notice my feelings for him?
And will he see how much he means to me?
I think it's not to be
What will become of my dear friend
Where will his actions lead us then?
Although I'd like to join the crowd
In their enthusiastic cloud
Try as I may, it doesn't last

And will we ever end up together?
No, I think not, it's never to become
For I am not the one

And will we ever end up together?
Ohhhhhhh

And will we ever end up together?
No, I think not, it's never to become
For I am not the one
-----------------------------------------------------
 for interested parties:
Jack and Sally will be available as a print SLCcomicon.  
Quantities are limited :)
Update:  thank you everybody!

Boba Fett MOC


Boba Fett

"There will be a substantial reward for the one who finds the Millennium Falcon. You are free to use any methods necessary, but I want them alive. No disintegration."

"As you wish." ―Darth Vader and Boba Fett

And with that exchange I imagined many a story featuring Fett's disintegration antics for fun and profit.

Smaug the Magnificent


My armor is like tenfold shields, my teeth are swords, my claws spears, the shock of my tail a thunderbolt, my wings a hurricane, and my breath death!
