Hola.  Here are pictures of my sketchbook, showing some quick drawings I did of another Animal Battle piece, Koala.  This sketchbook is a big’n (I use 11 x 14″ books), and it has become such an integral part of my process that I can’t imagine not using it.

As you can see, I didn’t stray too much from the original sketch:

NOW IN MY SHOP: Adult Babysitting Volume II!

Have you ever waited tables?  Shlepped drinks on a tray?  Stood behind a busy bar for 7 hours while needing to pee the whole time as you mix and muddle hundreds of cocktails?  Dealt with the drunken public?  Read horrible Yelp reviews about yourself by that asshole you kicked out of the bar once?  Cleaned up someone else’s puke out of a sink?

Yeah, I get you.  I’ve done it too.  This comic series is meant for you.

With hilarious true stories and shocking behavior by grown-ups who should know better, find some solace in these small volumes.  Sip a whiskey while you’re at it.

And for those of you who have never spent time working in the service industry, do yourself a favor: get educated.

More Harry Potter inspired bartending comics!  If only this could happen in real life.  Although I could probably still make that kid cry like that, without any magic.

I’ve been re-watching the Harry Potter movies and couldn’t help but think how much more awesome a bartender’s job would be if they had a magical wand.  More to come.

I’ve spent months toiling away on this issue, hunched over my desk, eyes bleeding, fingers cramping, ignoring my cat – I’m so excited to finally let it all hang out.  Volume II is pretty dang awesome.

Comic // Hose ‘Er Down

 

I just finished a full new strip for Adult Babysitting: Volume II, featuring one of my favorite log book entries by my coworker.  In it, a hapless drunkie gets hosed down with water from the soda gun after she pinwheeled her way behind the bar (always a big Nuh-Uh).  Poor thing.

I inked this two page spread on my self-made template I created just for Adult Babysitting, then scanned it into Photoshop for some clean up and added tones.  Wanna see the full comic?  Check it out over on www.adultbabysittingcomic.com!

And have a wonderful holiday, y’all.  May your feast be plentiful and your house full of family or friends.
