This Week In MesyComics: Weeks 14-15, Been Down But Not Out

Hey everybody thanks for checking in. I've been on a bit of a break (some intentional and some not). Social media was getting on my nerves so I unplugged and spent time off-line, had a couple of my kids birthday's to celebrate, nice father's day weekend, etc. I'm feeling a bit better so I hope to get back to the drawing board ASAP.

I'm wondering if I don't suffer from some sort of seasonal depression however. I hit a lull last summer too. That turned into a full blown artistic slump. Keeping my fingers crossed it's not a repeat but something I'm curious about. Who ever heard of seasonal depression being in the summer?

I do have one piece of artist news to share. I have a fantastic and supportive wife. She heard me mention how I have trouble drawing women so she bought me this cool drawing model. It's crazy how pose-able it is and has all these attachable hands and accessories. A bit anime in look but who can argue with how useful this is. It's a bit expensive (probably wouldn't have bought it for myself) but now that I have it I'll have to get the guy too.  It's by SH Figuarts.

This Week In MesyComics: Week 13, Friends, Family, Fan Art and Ikea?

This week's free time was severely limited. Hung out with friends and family and what free time I had in the mornings this week I spent doing fan art. Me and the kids have been doing a lot of Mario Kart so I drew my favorite guy and kart set up from the game. The girls got a kick out of it because I printed out the inked like art so they could color their own version. It killed my comic progress for the week but I'm glad I did both the playing and the drawing. Josie really loved both.

I'd hoped I'd get some time on the weekend to draw but we ended up going to Ikea (always a time suck) and then spent most of the day Sunday putting furniture together.

Anyway, here's my Mario Kart fan art from the week!
