Winds of Change

I'm bored with my website. I think I have entirely too much old crap on it. I have so many random mascots serving little or no purpose. So I'll be dumping it all and starting from scratch at some point in the near future.
I've also been blowing a lot of time time looking at random art blogs. I swear I could take a week to just be inspired by the plethora of work out there.
But not to fear, I haven't been slacking in the art department. Here's a little something I did for something I will diverge more info about at a later date.

Sandman and Seen in a waiting room...

I'm doing some warm up sketches of the Sandman for a draw-off and this is what I came up with for now. I've also grown attached to my sketchbook and take it everywhere I go, fortunately there is never a shortage of subject matter as these two fellows show. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

And as a bonus, here is one of the Lord of the ring sketch cards I revamped.

Stummbled across some ancient character design sheets through for Disney's Long abandonded Don Quixote project, and just had to share. They need to back and do this project!

Time to take a (caricature) dump

Here are several caricatures from the past few months. Just a little reminder, that eventhough I was slaving over the comic book stuff, I was till working at the greatest job in the world.

Ice Cream

I'm a moderator at Digital in a draw-off section. We've been running pin-up contests where I throw out a word and folks get to design a pinup around it. For the most part it's been edible items, Bubble Gum, Champagne, Ice Cream, and now Cookies.
While I had definite ideas for each, Tragic the Clown, and Megacon were taking up most of my drawing time. I managed however to sketch something out for Ice Cream the night Megacon finished. Unfortunately, I fell asleep before completing it all the way. It's a bit risque, but it's doing well in the voting polls.

....Meeting her idol.

One of the neatest things that went down at the show, was Hailey's chance to meet her imaginary friend and schoolgirl crush, Sean Astin. Ever since she saw ENCINO MAN a few years ago, David (the character her played in the movie), or Daven, as her young developing speech would say, has been her security blanket.
She plays with him, works with him, is married to him, etc.
So for months she was looking forward to meeting him. He was at the show! So 30 bucks, and a half an hour in line later, my baby got to meet him. He was a great guy, and seemed very humble. Hailey was a bit star-struck and gooey, but could not be happier!
That in itself made MEGACON entirely worthwhile.

Megacon Day 3

Well, I missed a day so I'll double up on the photos. Megacon is now in the bag, but what a blast it was. Met a lot of great people, drew some cool pics, was inspired by the massive talents, and was able to spend a ton of bonding time with my oldest daughter. She hung with me all three days of the show! I would have liked to shop a little more, but I was too busy drawing.
I have some books left for anyone who may be interested. I'll post info here soon on pricing. In the meanwhile, here are some photos of work I did at the con.
It was a good time. Thanks also again to my pals at , I enjoyed the high quality of work, and the dinners afterward!!!!

Megacon day 1

Well day one has come and gone, and I was pretty durned happy with the set-up. Lots of talented people there, and The Books looked great! A ton of thanks to my friends at
I took the girls along today, and eventhough my littlest had a melt down, Hailey loved every moment and stayed the whole day. She is determined to be there all day again tomorrow. Should be a busier day, and maybe she'll get to meet her crush, Sean Astin.
Here is a group shot of the set-up and the lococlan. And one of a few Princess Leias I drew.
More news tommorrow!

Well we are on the eve of the big show. I'm pretty jazzed and ready to go. Both Tragic the Clown, and my sketch book are al printed up and available to buy. I'll be drawing all kinds of commissions and probably spending just as much as a earn. Nonetheless, I'll try to give daily updates over the next few days. For now, I must get some sleep.
And here is the colored cover for the sketchbook, whuch will also be poster sized at the show. Mick Clausen at did an amazing job!!

Here is the cover to Tragic the Clown. The logo was done by Brien Roth and he did a fantastic job capturing the look and feel of the book. The official release date is Feb 14th, and it will be available at Megacon and the internet soon.

It Came from the POND!!

Well Tragic the Clown is all but printed, just waiting on a few pinups so I can ship it off to be printed. So now I am working furiously on putting together my sketchbook. Apropriately titled, "It Came from the Pond! Collected Sketches and artwork from Michael Locoduck Duron"
And here in all it's black and white glory is the cover image. I'm looking to get it pretty quickly colored as well since I have zero computer coloring skills.
I'll post a colored version as soon as it's ready.
