Daily Batman: Hidden underneath

February 1, 2011


I think hidden underneath a lot of teachers are very sexy women.

(Andie MacDowell).

I know I have been a total slug about posting lately and the last time I did that was because I nearly croaked, but fear not. This time it’s nothing so dire, and is good news instead. I’ve been scrambling to get my shit together to make this whole substitute-teaching my Scamps thing in to a full-time gig, and I felt that I had to put all my fire under that. I was busy being well-dressed and using my gracious telephone voice while applying to a credential program, throwing my hat in the ring for an open position at the private school where I teach, and sending out queries for letters of recommendation — my least favorite thing to do on the planet. I don’t just burn my bridges: I dynamite them in my wake and launch the ashes in a coffee can in to space and I sow the land around where the bridge used to be with with salt and then I seek out the bridge-builder and I rough him up and cut out his tongue in front of his family. You cannot imagine how horrible I am at looking back, seriously.

And I’m even worse at admitting I need a favor. I’d rather drink bleach then ask for help. I’m working on all this, honestly.

But now it’s basically all in other people’s hands so I’m back.

It was recently pointed out to me during my absence that even though I like plenty of comics and link them to literature and artistic tropes all the time in conversation, I don’t focus much on anything except the Bat on this journal. That’s true. It’s lazy and misrepresents the entirety of my interests. I’ll work on remedying that more often. I’ll try and throw something up today as an example.

Daily Batman: Four more drawings of Batgirl

November 5, 2009


“Batgirl” by punchyninja on deviantart, aka Vince Riley.

I am not including the ones my kidlet and I drew and colored yesterday. They were really awful. I didn’t realize how hard it is to draw a knee pit. And braces? Way more difficult to make look cute and not disgusting in a sketch than you’d imagine! You don’t want to know. My faith in my comic skills took quite the pummeling. I commented to Miss D a while later while chatting, “Hey, you know what would be fun? If we all took a figure drawing class together.” Subtext: Because I suck at drawing Batgirl.


“Batgirl thinggggg” by doctajules on deviantart, also to be found on hokuten.net, which has its own story.

Anyway, these are some of the first I’ve found recently of my favorite results from the “draw Batgirl” meme from deviantart, livejournal, and elsewhere. Click through for links to the artists.


“Batgirly whee!” by Whirring Blender, aka the lovely and talented Carly Monardo. She drew this one actually for the second round of the meme, which was started both times by artist and lj raconteur Jamie Dee Galey.

I have dozens of these saved here and there that I'm slowly recovering along with bits and pieces of all my other lost data, so lots more to come eventually!


“Batgirl a la Nouveau” by urdsama on deviantart, aka Olga Ulanova.

Daily Batman: Drawing Batgirl really is a Thing

November 4, 2009

I have mentioned the “draw Batgirl” lj meme before, but apparently it is a Thing to do even among more serious artists.


“Batgirl,” by chriss2d on deviantart.

The artist says, “Another commission piece, this time of Batgirl illustrated for UDON’s Chief, Erik Ko. Inked full size illustration.”
