As I write this THE CABINET, a historical horror graphic novel written by Christian Sager and drawn by me, has a kickstarter that is in it’s last 19 hours. That’s 19 hours left to become a backer and get cool stuff like original art, hardcover copies of the book with a sketch inside, limited edition prints and much more.
Check it out if you haven’t yet! THE CABINET KICKSTARTER
Last night I sat on my couch with a pad of paper watching the Unborn, intending to just do a little goofing around. Before I knew it the movie was over and I had drawn nothing. Just couldn’t come up with anything that got me ready to. So, I ended up doing a sketch Jason Vorhees form the Friday the 13th flicks. Got up this morning and slapped a little color on it and decided to share it here.
Also, quickly, of course I hated reading about what happened in Colorado last night. That is just a sickening thing and I couldn’t begin to imagine what friends and families involved must be feeling.
Already I’ve seen people talking about the possibility of negative talk about comics and violence as well as violence in movies. This is not a comic book related incident. This is not a movie related incident. This is a gun related incident.
The fact that this type of “mass shooting” has become almost common place in this country and people STILL insist that tightening gun laws is to strip them of a “god given right” is appalling to me.
I also find it unfortunate that we can most likely look at any of the last times this happened and see exactly how the coverage and conversations will go this time. It never changes.
People want to fight with each other over taking someones right to marry who they choose, their right to choose what to do with their own bodies, or even the right to proper health care. These issues, that shouldn’t even be issues, are what everyone has been focusing on in the past few elections. There will always be a murmur on tightening gun control then people will say “that’s my god given right”.
Like, I don’t see how it’s a good idea that I can go to the store and buy a case of beer, ingredients for tacos, dish washing soap and a new shot gun, all from the same place. Guns, and some people, are dangerous. Guns are a problem.
So, yeah, sorry, it’s my opinion or whatever.
