    "So the whole Thor thing happened last summer, while I was helping Jane with her research, and since I survived that I’m apparently qualified to assist some of the greatest scientists of the modern world? And I have L2 SHIELD clearance? Sure, why not. I mean, Phil Coulson thought I was competent, I guess. Getting a rec letter from him is like getting one from the Pope and Batman. And then Thor put in a good word for me when Dr. Banner was looking for an assistant, so here I am.

    But they never said anything about me needing a bodyguard. I know Bruce has the Other Guy, and I’ve seen the videos on Youtube and 4chan and whatever, but come on. The guy wouldn’t hurt a fly. He actually helped saved an entire species of fruit fly. He’s pro-fly. But my mom insisted, and Thor said his brother needed to learn a few lessons about humanity, and Thor’s dad thought the whole snake dripping venom on his son’s face was a bit old-fashioned so. Director Fury signed some papers.

    And that’s why I’m spending my summer driving across the United States with Dr. Bruce Banner and Loki, Son of Laufey. This does not count towards my major.”

    Pages 2-5 of my short comic “NO PARKING.” It’s the first actual comic to ever feature Peko, a character I’ve had for a super long time but NOW HE FINALLY HAS HIS OWN STORY. This 8-pager is kind of like a prequel to the actual comic (that I will start at some point when I have time HAHA) to introduce him (and hint at some other main characters.) 

    This comic will be featured in an anthology my super wonderful friends at grad school are kickstarting called GAME BOSS: THE FINAL FORM. It’s a “collection of short comics by thirteen international artists exploring the them of ‘antagonists’.”   

    We need a little more help to reach our Kickstarter goal by the 22nd of April! Any pledges or reblogs/signalboosts would be greatly appreciated! I’ll be retouching and ~*~**TONING**~*~ (ooooh!) all my pages for print, so they’ll look extra fabulous. Also, if you click our kickstarter link, you’ll see that THERE ARE TWELVE OTHER RIDICULOUSLY TALENTED INDIVIDUALS ALSO INVOLVED IN THE MAKING OF THIS BOOK. 

    Please consider taking a look~

    Super-sketchy storyboarding homework!

    My attempt at dissecting the iconic scene from Jaws (1975). There’s a lot of subtle greatness in this scene, but in particular it shows how a reaction to a threat is always more important than the threat itself. Reactions not only contextualize threats, they reveal character. If Brody had screamed or freaked out or done something else egregiously out of character, it wouldn’t have been as effective as his super character-specific response. He bolts up (calling back the bazillion other times he did that in the movie), and his shock manifests in his slow walk backwards and the fact that he never drops his cigarette. Finally, his famous (and ad-libbed!) quote is a massive understatement, adding to the humor (and overall plain coolness) of the scene.
