State of the Union?

Yes I gave a listen...but this drawing has nothing to do with that.

Earthday!

Earthday 2234!
We see here the famous
Commander Sharpie as she battles
the evil ALL CORP, who plan to harvest
the last remaining resources of a near
dead Planet Earth.

Okay, time for me to put the French fashion mag down.
Really.

Power Out! Nathan schreiber's late birthday

It's Nathan schreiber's late birthday post!

Before Nathan left Brooklyn to roam the American back roads hunting down
crack dealers and bringing in their severed right hands so he could collect the posted
50 dollar bounty, he roamed the New York streets as the hero know as
"The Cast!" A tragic accident involving a vacuum cleaner and under the
counter hoover attachments broke Nathans arm in six places, and bruised
his upper thigh. After that tragic twist of fate he began to hunt down rogue
robots in the Gowanus area of Brooklyn. Smashing their heads in with
his his power cast and trade mark cry of "POWER OUT!" Thus, he made Brooklyn
safe for older cartoonists.

In his spare time Nathan reads Doctor Who fan fiction (mostly involving the
teen companion Adric) and collects Judy Garland "Bear doodles."

Happy Birthday Nathan.
We salute you!

G.I. Joe

I don’t know much about the G.I Joe universe.

I only remember having one of the 12-inch movable figures.

My friend had another and of course brought it over to have
adventures with mine. That was the marketing genius of it I guess.

This is the “Abominable Snow man” action figure. He had snow gear, a gun,
and other snow related accessories to help in the capture of the fearsome
Yeti. I had nothing more to say on the subject, but drawing that little
boot (I always lost one boot) brought back a vivid memory of putting on
and taking off G.I. Joe’s foot wear. I remember that the plastic seam on
the shoe eventually would tear (as it was a tight fit) and I felt
betrayed by the cheap workmanship.

How I wished for Joe to have quality foot wear!

Addendum: Simon's post made me realize I left out my Joe's complete bio and
the reason he is depicted naked here.

I often took the clothes off so I could put them in water
and subject them to freeze experiments in the ice box.
After that they were subjected to heat endurance tests
on the grill which caused irreparable scaring and deformations.
My Joe eventually lost his head riding a metal death slide I built
on the stairs using an Erector set from the 50's. For those
who don't know, Erector sets from the 50's were full of dangerous sharp
metal parts and I often needed band aids after building something with it
or getting my fingers caught in the moving gears of the heavy
electric motor that came with the set.

Thus, poor Joe's plastic 1970's esthetic didn't stand a chance against
the sharp metal toy tools of the cold war era.
