Did a sketch the other night while watching @dfinchartist drawing an evil clown. This isn't an evil clown, but you can probably see the inspiration. I'm excited about his new videos to come! #Drawing #ComicArt #Sketchbook #Pencilling #illustration #DavidFinch #Sketch #Pencil

Oddly relevant now. 😳 I realized that while originally my @gatekeeper_comic years ago and the characters who go through a mysterious apocalypse, one guy is scared of germs and chemical warfare so he always wears a mask (and carries an assault rifle despite having no bullets.) #Comics #ComicArt #Drawing #illustration #Art

Blood n Concrete #1 A supernatural gangster horror comedy.

Drawn by me! Andy Jenkins the writer is a great guy. Please consider supporting his book! Plus its a supernatural gangster horror comedy. ;)

London's past and present collide in a darkly comic tale of love, loss, betrayal, revenge and undead Cockney gangsters.

RIP to my dad, Dale Alvin Dillon (his initials spelled D.A.D.), 1941-2020.

He had been a paratrooper in Vietnam, a singer, guitar player, professional writer for a time, artist, woodworker, avid reader, auto mechanic, cattle wrangling cowboy, gardener, cook, fisherman, bowman...lots of awesome things BUT he spent most of my lifetime working from 3am-6am as a newspaper carrier and from 7am-3pm as a hotel maintenance man, to support his family. He never missed a day of work, especially those newspaper that had to be delivered even on Christmas.

When he was off work, he would drop everything and drive me basically anywhere I asked, the park, the comic shop, library, soccer practice, baseball practice, wrestling, band, went to my concerts, a million other things.
Now that I'm a father of 4 I realize he had a superhuman amount of patience. I have pretty severe ADHD and was more than a handful growing up, talked nonstop (he always seemed interested and happy for me), broke every window in our house with a soccer ball, broke his tools, tied string all over the house to make a Spider-man inspited web labyrinth for him to go through after a long day at his manual labor job, just to name a few, and he never lost his temper with me, never seemed annoyed or anxious even.
When I started drawing seriously and getting into comics he made sure I had what I needed, even if he had to make it himself. We didn't have much money but he used what he had on me and found a way every time.

He even let me take over half the small house we lived in to make it an art studio.

I owe so much to him. And I hope he knew how much I appreciated him. I can't believe he's really gone. I knew he was old and it was a matter of time but he still seemed immortal to me. He was a superhero.

Love you, Daddy. Miss you forever.

Also pictured here is my mom, Judy. She passed away several years ago now. But their love story is pretty wonderful too. They had a rocky relationship at times (who doesn't) but they're love for each other was never a question. They had been together since their 20s and stayed together through lots of hardships that taught me that everything will be okay in the end. Love you, momma.

Looks like drawing that depressing piece yesterday did help me get past my art block. And my friend @brentaengstrom prompting everyone to draw Don Knotts helped even more. I loved Don Knott's as a kid. Go check out his Facebook to see him and other artists drawing from the same photo reference. Fun!

Every time I've gone to sketch something the last several days this image has been in my head and I didn't want to draw something depressing. I wanted to have fun drawing. But then I end up drawing nothing all day. Finally I just drew it to get it out of my head. I can't stop worrying about our babies and neighbors (all elderly) and just everyone. So there. Hopefully I can draw something fun and happy now.
