Once again Jo VanEvery has commissioned an awesome cartoon to use in her work. She consults academics about academic career sorts of things, and one of the issues that often comes up is the spectre of professionalism. He’s modeled a bit after Marley from A Christmas Carol since I was watching the Muppet version when I did his sketch, which gives him a delightful sort of gloom that goes well with the snippet of academic-speak, overflowing inbox, monogrammed briefcase and perfectly boring suit and tie. His humorless expression tops off the chains of expectation perfectly.
Here’s hoping your Monday isn’t quite so burdened, and that you have plenty of caffeine regardless.

After the delightful Jo VanEvery got several cartoons from me to use in her work, she’s finally let me cartoon her! We chose a favorite sweater of hers, and the cheerful galoshes she wishes she had, and then added in one of the pigs she raises on their farm and the new lantern logo I created for her site. Or a reasonable facsimile, at least.
I think the galoshes are my favorite part.
If you’d like to be a cartoon, too, check out my page and let me know what item you’ve always wanted. It seems I end up drawing a lot of wished-for (and favourite) shoes!

After an inking mishap with this comic required some Photoshop love to make it workable, I put it away in a drawer sad for its fate. Then I decided to try to color it anyway, and through the magic of pinstripes you can’t tell where I mis-inked it at all, yay! I decided to do Sherlock’s clothes in cool blue and give Mycroft a nice warm yellow shirt and golden tie, which goes well with the warm brown tapioca ball stuck to his forehead.

Boba really does make the best spitballs ever, though. At least it was just one?

Before we talk about the tentacles, I bring you news of a highly amusing Kickstarter! They’re doing a giveaway to promote their new indy horror flick, and the minute I saw the title I knew I’d donate a Cthulhu print to the cause. It’s called Call Girl of Cthulhu, and it’s about a hooker-cum-Cthulhu-priestess and the virgin nerd who loves her. I kinda can’t wait to see it in all its awful, cheesetastic glory.
Now, back to today’s art!
The wonderful folks at Chaosium asked me if I had a Cthulhu comic to go in their Gencon newsletter, and while I didn’t, I did have time to draw something up for them. Gencon has come and gone, sadly without my attendance, but a little bit of me was there! My favorite part is the squid looking very scared of Cthulhu’s wiggling foot.

Cuter than a teacup pig, wee Harry Potter is just hanging out in his commemorative Quidditch World Cup teacup. For all that they have magic, there’s a shocking lack of tiny Potter characters running around being adorable. Shocking.

This absurd little sketch was actually by request. Someone asked for a drawing of “Mycroft cuddling his umbrella, wearing matching pyjamas,” which was just so silly I couldn’t resist! And yes, of course those are umbrellas on their matching pjs, what else would they be?
