Mike Holmes Rules!

I wanted to share this awesome sketch that local cartoonist all-star Mike Holmes did for me. I asked for a sketch of me having a beer with Hal Jordan. Here it is:

Pretty great, eh?

He also just did this amazing poster for an upcoming show, featuring Windom Earle, Wordburglar, The Gideons and my band (The Stolen Minks). I'm Batman on the poster.

Exciting!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, DC needs to hire this guy to draw Teen Titans.

To see the fantastic comics that he's done for the local weekly paper, check out his Flickr site. His ongoing True Story series is especially awesome, which has him drawing true stories that people send him. Here's the story that I sent him:

So, in summary, Mike Holmes is awesome.

What happened at the end of your horror-filled outing? Did someone stop and help you? Did you smash through the car window with caribou antlers? Did you wait it out until springtime, subsisting solely on berries and dead (from exposure) party members? ps Mike Holmes would be great on some Tiny Titans.

thats a great show poster, I love that whoever is wearing the auga-green cape with big W on their chest has matching colored under-roo's on as well.

Wow, thanks Rachelle! And everybody.

Rachelle rules, really. And yes, I would like to draw Teen Titans, DC Comics. Please let me.

We all need to acknowledge that that isnt an accurte representation of Hal Jordan.


Every one knows Hal would be trying to cop a feel.

Dear Lord, I cant spell. I'm not a bimbo, I'm a Halbo.

Mike Holmes IS amazing. I love your Hal picture especially. I'm sure that he was working up to propositioning you after the beer was gone.

I think it's clear that RACHELLE's the one laying down some power moves on Hal. She's got that "we're laughing so it's okay that I'm touching you" arm thing going.

Awwwwww ... I wanna have a beer with Hal, too! But only if I'm armed with a yellow ring and Guy is around to give Hal a hard time. ;-)

You're a brave woman, Rachelle!

Hey, where's that Batman drawing I did? I mean, I don't wanna draw Teen Titans or anything, I just wanna see it again . . .

Ben said...

Also, I don't think I ever mentioned how much I enjoy that you don't end that True Story with any resolution whatsoever . . .

Excellent sketch I like so much comics I remember since I was child it was my passion, that's the reason I felt really identify with this.
