Spring Creature 2

While spending some time in the garden I was visited by a rather curious house finch.  I watched him get within a few feet of me to eat from our feeder and at times he would turn his head down as if to say hello and chat a bit.  This is a quick attempt to capture a moment of uncertain timidity as he move spot to spot closer.  What will spring bring tomorrow as we will see you again on the next page…

March of the Robots D18

Today I wanted to post something fun and also take a moment to recognize where the idea of the robots came from in the first place.  If you never heard of the name Dacosta! or Chocolatesoop than you should check out Dacosta! for sure because this is the creator of the March of Robots idea.  It has grown enormously over the past few years.  Dacosta! has worked with some of the biggest brands you know and is a talented industry giant.  Artists affect your everyday life in many more ways than you may possibly know so take a second to look around out and see how much artists impact our daily life.  See you on the next page my friends…

Match of the Robots D15

A large amount of my followers are undoubtedly having a great time on their spring break or will soon.  (Spring break is typically a week vacation period for the education field and is popularized as a vacation week to go crazy at the beach or parties) So for today in spirit of this I thought I would do this sort of simplified hermit crab looking bot thinking about those people having a blast.  Whatever you are doing always remember to find reasons to smile and I will see you on the next page… 

Perspective Comic Fly-Thru

I ran this as an Instagram video yesterday with great reception so I thought you all would appreciate seeing a quick flip through the inked pages of the perspective comic I am working on.  It is nearly done so onto to digital editing and lettering next.  I am desperately wanting to return to bringing you guys more frequent images but please bare with me as I am getting swamped by my graduate studies.  Good news is I am catching up so I should be able to get to a good spot soon. Thanks for following even through slow times.  So here is the video and I will see you on the next page.

Santa?

Advent of the Archetypes ended yesterday but in the spirit of the literary tale I thought I would bring you a classic character dressed a Santa. The spirit of Santa I believe is far more important than who wears the suit or where they come from or any backstory whatseover.  In the end it is about giving to others and spreading joy to see a smile come to the faces that honestly need them most.  SO……. here is the invisible man as your favorite jolly red suited fat man.   Hey maybe that is why he is so illusive.  It makes sense doesn’t it?

Conclusion (AotA 24)

The darkness of the Sandman’s power had taken over the drift into a uncontrollable sleep.  The sense of pulling in a deposit dark fluid pit seemed to last for ever.  Something seemed to be there though and yet faint and almost not tangible.  A vibration? A hum? ….. a nudge?…… wait everything is moving…. something is causing movement.  Something is making the hum.  It’s not a him it’s talking. The muffled voice began to become clearer.  The nudge is starting to grab attention.  “Wake up!” The world becomes to make sense again as a blurred world comes into focus.  Was it all a dream?  Was none of the adventure real at all?  Looking up in a daze a familiar face comes into view.  It is good old Jack, a true best friend.  “Come on, wake up sleepy head.  You gotta see this!”  Sitting up Jack is sitting there in the awkwardly cute way Jack always does.  There is something Jack is eager to show.  “What is it?”  Jack smiled and held an out reached hand opening to reveal a handful of glowing almost alien green beans.  “Old man Arthur across town gave me these and said find a good place to plant these and prepare for adventure…. He also rambled on about how I better not break his giant record, whatever that means…. COME ON!!!!” Hand in hand nothing is clear,  what did Arthur mean, what was real, and what adventure? …………..

Thank you for following along with Advent of the Archetypes!  I hope you enjoyed the ride.  Those of you are scratching your head from the ending fear not for your answers will be revealed in AotA2: A World Apart.  To those of you celebrating today Happy Holidays and  Merry Christmas.  We will see you tomorrow with a super special bonus post.  See you on the next page!!
