Friday Comic Booker: Batman Adventures Mad Love cover

Much respect for all the talented comic-book letterers
who, I imagine, use t-squares and rulers.

Mr R Wednesday?!? Special: Another St. Vincent scrawl

Mster's buddy at THE Kent State University wanted an Annie Clark drawing, 
so I broke out the pencils and delivered (sort of, lol)

"Won't somebody sell me back to me?"

Francis Ngannou pencil


Ngannou's nuclear warhead fist one-punch-man annihilated Overeem. 

If you missed it, check out the replay (it ought to convince you why you should just watch MMA and not even entertain the idea of becoming a fighter, lol).

The Predator has won a couple fights via submission. We ought to learn how solid his ground game is when he faces Stipe on January 20th.

I'm no MMA strategist, but when facing pure punching dynamite, 
the mat seems a better place to brawl.

Go Stipe!!!

St Vincent -- Annie Clark - Digital Witness pencil

People turn the TV on, it looks just like a window... Yeah

Copy and paste the link below to listen on Youtube
(you can handle it, I think, maybe, lol)

Mr R Monday Special: Harley & the Joker

Yeah, I know, I'm a Marvel Zombie who needs to scrawl more DC
(I mostly read Image though, lol)

Demetrious Johnson pencil

Saturday's UFC card could be packed with pugilistic fun.
Much respect to those who draw animated characters. Crisp, clean lines are much harder to scrawl than they seem (at least for me, lol).

Cheers!

Hela - Thor Ragnarok - Cate Blanchett pencil (a Mr R. Monday Special)

If you're gonna be graphite obsessed, why not be so with Hela? Lol. 
Hela is Norse God of Underworld/Death. Thanos is in love with death.
Will she return in the Avengers III movie?

C'mon Russo bros, make it happen!

Stephen Thompson pencil

Got a little whacked on the background, oh well.

Have a great turkey day!

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

Zoe Saldana Gamora pencil

Question:  better to star in Guardians of the Galaxy or Star Trek movies?
Answer:  both.

Mr R Monday Special: Rose Namajunas

In a thrilling battle of difficult to spell names, it was a
great win for Namajunas over Jedrzejczyk.

St. Pierre vs. Bisping pencil

GSP vs. Bisping was a great fight. We like both guys -- for
different reasons -- and rooted (i.e., yelled at the TV) for St. Pierre. 

GSP embodies everything mixed martial arts ought to be about: respect, dedication, humility, art. Great to see him win by choke.  

Enjoy your weekend!

Friday Comic book scrawl: Andrea, Walking Dead


RIP Andrea. I know you were never alive, but I still miss you. 
Have a great weekend and go Brownies!!!!

Mr R Tuesday Special: Orphan Black Tatiana Maslany Cosima

Got mixed up yesterday and missed posting the Mr R Monday Special.
Trying to atone for my sins today - sorry Mr. R, lol.

Monday, November 6, 2017

Till vs. Cerrone pencil

Saturday's UFC card was the most exciting event I've seen in a long time.

Friday, November 3, 2017

Game of Thrones Jaime Lannister

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau may be the only Game of Thrones' actor whose real (aka stage) name is harder to spell correctly than his character's.

Wish GSP had stayed retired and kept playing Marvel characters like Batroc (GSP for Moon Boy because he loves dinosaurs!) Hope he has a great performance this weekend. Enjoy it - Cheers!

Wednesday, November 1, 2017

Thor Ragnarok Natalie Portman pencil

Finally saw GGOG2 this week - super fun movie.
Thor Ragarok looks great. Let's hope it is, despite the lack of Portman.

Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Mr R Wednesday?!? Special - Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black

L-Blitz turned us on to Orphan Black's SF fun (no spoilers).
Maslany deserved at least five Emmy's for her performance(s),
instead of one (just one! ridiculous). 

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Iron Man Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) pencil

Clueless which Iron Man flick this is from (3?) Thought I'd never write that there are almost too many superhero movies, BUT most of them are still pretty darn entertaining. Bring on Thor and Justice League (but where's Blue Beetle? lol)

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Gegard Mousasi pencil

Mousasi back in action this weekend for Bellator.
More guys should follow his lead and take control of their careers.

Monday, October 16, 2017

Mr R. Monday Special! Thor Ragnarok Hela (Cate Blanchett)

Saw Mr. R last week - he's looking great
(not as great as Cate Blanchett as Hela, but who is?)
Mr R still slogging the mileage and running his first 1/2 marathon next month.
Go Mr. R!!!! You rock, dude.

Tony Ferguson pencil


Ferguson-Lee could be a real barn burner. 
Can Brownies beat Jets Sunday or we will tumble to 0-5? 
The Kamchatka Swami sees 0-5, lol. Go Tribe!

Thursday, October 5, 2017

Cormier Jones pencil

Only one person knows if Jones can ever get his act
back together:  Jon Jones.

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Nathalie Emmanuel - Game of Thrones Missandei

Of course I watched the show (and am still refusing to use rulers).
If you didn't, you're missing some fantastic TV

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

STIPE!

If Stipe played for the Browns, we'd find a way to ruin him too, alas, lol


RIP Tom Petty -- "It's Just the Normal Noises in Here"

Daenyres & Dragon (a Mr. R. Special)

Been flying all over the place (not on dragons, alas). Let's see if we can do some
scrawl catch up this week and next. Enjoy your Monday!

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Joanna Jedrzejczyk pencil

I'm out on Mayweather-McGregor. Not just because it will be a non-competitive, yawn-inducing fight (remember the pure, unadulterated excitement of Couture-Toney?), but because I refuse to support the fight's race-baiting, ugly promotion campaign. It's nothing unusual for boxing, alas.

Vote with your wallet.

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Ferguson vs. Barbosa pencil

Me and L-Blitz watched Saturday's uneven UFC card. Couple great fights:  Lawler-Cerrone and Jones-Cormier, along with a yawner, Woodley-Maia. Is there anyone who can challenge Chris Cyborg (or even wants to?)

Friday, July 28, 2017

Alexander Gustafsson pencil

If Jones defeats Cormier tomorrow - which I expect to happen - will we see Bones-Mauler II? Hard to believe their first brawl was four years ago.

Of course, given my brilliant predictive capabilities,
you probably ought to bet DC.

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Gaethje-Johnson pencil

Gaethje hits so hard that the shock wave warps the cage. 
Or I could spend 50 cents on a ruler, right? 

Monday, July 17, 2017

Mr R Monday - Aunt May, Marisa Tomei

Continuing 2017's "super" performance, I have yet to see Spider-Man Homecoming. That makes me four for four for 2017 (Logan, WW, GGOG2 and Spidey 6 or 1 the 3rd). If Doc Ironman still lived in fabulous, flood-filled Findlay, I'd have at least seen two of them. It's all your fault, Doc, lol.

BTW, all Marisa as Aunt May haters need to get a life. And, once you all find it, email me because I need one too. :)

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Ronaldo Souza pencil

Despite the abrupt, inexplicable Nunes cancellation, I bought Saturday's UFC card and enjoyed the fights, especially the return of the "real" Pettis. 
Thought Werdum got robbed, but what's an event without judging controversy? 

Gaethje-Johnson delivered Friday night, making my tepid prediction a reality. Zip to YouTube if you haven't seen that brawl - crazy.

Monday, July 10, 2017

Mr R Monday Special, Karen Gillan, Nebula

Have I seen Guardians 2? Of course not. 
Have seen #1. It's fun. Enjoy your day!
