Happy Friday, Happy (belated) Solstice, and Happy Holidays!
My dear friend Matt (@fball13z) lost his mom recently, and had a tattoo idea that he asked me to draw. @2braveart was the tattoo artist and did a beautiful job. Humbled and honored to be a part of this loving tribute.
To quote Matt, “As always tell the people you love, that you love them any chance you get.” 🎄❤️💚

This pose is pretty much a cheap rip-off of my previous post. But my holiday wishes for you, Dear Reader, are sincere… Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Busy, behind, stressed, but still alive.
Happy Holidays, everyone!
As per the traditions of my people (my people = procrastinating nerdy illustrators), I’m posting a Christmas blog barely in time for the holiday.
Today’s drawing is an homage to the holiday season, the Aurora Borealis, and to Shotaro Ishinomori, the father of the Japanese Superhero. Ladies and gentleman, I present to you the cyborg snowman, SNOWBORG 12-25!
This was supposed to be quick and simple, but I got really into making it SHINY in the coloring stage. Since I haven’t been doing much digital coloring recently, I think maybe this was exactly the right thing to get me to brush the dust off the old tablet.
Happy Holidays to you and yours, dear reader!
Clad in a festive holiday cardigan, and armed with an indestructable black blade, Sword Saint Nicholas ventures into primal forests to carve wondrous toys out of granite and petrified wood for the virtuous children of the world. For wicked children, Sword Saint Nicholas has a different gift–a swift death at the end of his black blade!
What is this hero’s connection to the Shinobi Santa, Kage Kringle???
Happy Holidays, Folks!
(Posting early for the holidays, tune in on Friday for a bonus post… )
[23:25] JOSH: next time you guys do a sketch off
[23:25] JOSH: i’d like to see ninja santas
So you get this:
KAGE KRINGLE, the Shinobi Santa, gives razor-sharp kunai to all the good little ninjas at winter time. He also gives razor-sharp kunai to naughty ninjas… kunai which are delivered to their hearts. So be good, for goodness sake.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS, BLOG READERS!
