The Return of Stickman #984

I've been getting a lot of my inspiration from my friends lately. I'm hoping they enjoy seeing snippets of random conversation fly across Stickman.

The Return of Stickman #983

Just for the record, this humble artist has yet to visit old Mexico. But, I do travel a lot and can tell you that I've been seeing a lot of face masks.

Yesterday I was part of a panel on Social Media Marketing - What Actually Works, hosted by the Seattle Chapter of the Graphic Artists Guild. As part of that presentation I did a short PowerPoint presentation that was basically a bunch of stickmen with no words. It got a few laughs. The other panelists were Steve Crandall of Promotion Arts, Eric Weaver of Brand Dialogue, Craig Swanson of Creative Techs and Chase Jarvis Photographer. Greg Sommers of Flying Gecko video taped the event and Craig will use the content on the Creativetechs site. I look forward to sharing the video when I get a link to it.

The Return of Stickman #982 and The Comic Critic Reviews Tombs of the Blind Dead

Knowing my affection for zombie flicks, a friend suggested I check out The Tombs of the Blind. Well, I’m a bit of a zombie snob and I can tell you that this is not a zombie movie. In my book, when you have undead creatures crawling out of their graves and going after blood, then those things are vampires, not zombies. European horror movies of this era are known for having some T & A, but it’s more than obvious that some serious editing occurred to this film when it got State-side. I think I captured my disappointment fully in this strip.

I want to thank Tudza for this guest strip he submitted. Thanks, Dude!
