I'll be participating in a show at The Lotus Gallery that's comic book themed. They are trying to make it like a little mini comic con! Kinda cool! I won't get to have a table at their "con" as I will be at a wedding, BUT they WILL have copies of both my RocketBoy book and my The Cauldron In The Back Cabinet (check over on the sidebar). 
Above is a little sneak peek at one of my entries. I'll prolly have a couple small drawings too. Hope you can make it out!

p.s. If you want a copy of my book and wanna order one for pick up, let me know and I'll float a little doodle on the inside. You know, to punch up the resale value a couple cents in the next 50 years.

RocketBoy and Cauldron and Art

The History Center here in Fort Wayne is having an auction to raise money for the museum. My better half and I are donating some shtuff. I'm donating some copies of my books and an original drawing in the form of an original page, created specifically for the auction. It's just a little one pager, light, fun, drawn and inked in an evening. The books are shown over there on the right!

New Lunch Box Doodles

Took a day off from the story, but now we're back at it. An Instagram friend suggested I put all these little drawings together in a mini comic. I like that idea. I've been debating putting them all up here, but I don't have any extra time for scanning right now. Maybe soon.

Lunch Box Doodles-1

This started as a way to get my kids excited about going back to school: I'd put a little drawing in their lunchbox or bag for them to find. A little thing to ease anxiety and have a little fun. It also kept me drawing all kinds of stuff. Mostly light-hearted stuff to entertain them, make them smile.

I started when my daughter went to Kindergarten a couple years ago. Played around with images, told a weird little story, and then got busy with stuff and didn't do much last year. But I'm back at it now that my son is in kindergarten and my daughter has a broken arm.

This year's batch started out the same, little drawings, mostly of animals or anthropomorphized animals, light, fun; but I gotta tell stories. So here we go. Drawings right in ink, right onto the page and presented right out of the sketchbook, just like my kids see them. Not sure what the story is, but it will also be told 2 parts at a time.

I'm having a blast drawing for them, hopefully you'll like 'em too! I've been sharing them over on Instagram, too. If you wanna see 'em there, check me out: JJMcFarren.
