Animal Wednesday and 1000 posts

I'll probably be showing a lot of cartoons on Animal Wednesday due to my Tuesday night Art of the Comic Book class - which is a hoot. more later on that.

So, everyone in the class is drawing Iron Man and Dare Devil and Vampires so I felt that Miss Em had to have a turn at being a superhero. So in order to save poor Sparky from being smashed to smithereens by a comet, Miss Em flys about and saves the day.

Too funny. Talk about taking people (or made up people) out of their comfort zone!! Anyway it was fun to do, and last night we learned how to add text to the comic so I am going to erase the text that I have here and add better text and a few BLAMS and THWAPS to make it an authentic comic.

So on top of it being Animal Wednesday, I discover that this is my 1000th post!!! That calls for a giveaway don't you think? So, if you leave a comment here today you will be in for a drawing of a bunch of great stuff. A wonderful Vintage book or two, decorative paper galore, trimmings and other items that will make your creative heart go pitty-pat. I will pull the winning name on Saturday night.

Have a happy Animal Wednesday!

Maybe Ms Em should just get her purse out and whack those comets into submission. Ha.. Love seeing her in action with Sparky beside her. Haw and Congrats on 1000 posts.

Congratulations on posting 1,000 times! You are (almost) up there in status with Miss Em - who we ALWAYS knew was a Super-Hero! She seems to really be enjoying her new status... and so does Sparky!

Beautiful work, Mim - you have added Em into this genre nicely....without losing any of YOUR style.

Love, and Congrats again!
