Ghost in the Modern World

Been needing to draw more and I'd like to have a sketchbook for conventions next year. Going to try and do a full-color sketch each week (or more during the summer) to cover both. This one is a little dense but I've some new Zebra pens and am giving them a run. So far, I love them!

This is Major Mokoto Kusangi from Ghost in the Shell. Usually people play up her sex appeal. I decided I wanted to play up her yearning for peace in a modern world. This is also my attempt to make her look Japanese because, well, she's Japanese yet never looks it. Gonna have fun coloring this!

Mike Thor on Homes

My wife got us into watching Holmes on Homes. For those of you not familiar with it, it's a Canuck production that's been running for years and is just now showing up in America on HGTV. He goes to people who have had horrible problems with their homes from bad renovations to inspectors being jerks to reoccurring issues and more. More or less, he guts what he needs to and rebuilds the part of the home needing attention. His catch phrase is "MAKE IT RIGHT".

Anyway, Laura Martin recently mentioned in jest he should play Thor in the upcoming Marvel movie. This became talk of doing a sketch amongst some people, including the amazing Pat Bollin (who I can't wait to see what he does for this). I thought why not get in on this action since we love the guy too! So, I present you Mike Thor and his DeWALT Mjolnir.
