    So to avoid littering-- the Forum that is, with various posts on creative projects, I thought I'd do a catch all thread-

    Here's my first offering, a scene from the graphic short story Every Breath You Take, a tale about a CPR doll who develops sentience after receiving so many breaths of life. It is one of three sci-fi/horror stories from the Elsie the Bartender Tales anthology series volume Heartbreakers.

    Written by myself and illustrated by Ryan Durney

    Astrid promo pic 1 for the "Valhalla By Any Other Name" screenplay based on the comic. In the process of pricing and contracting color versions-

    To you go an idea of the color scheme, this lovely redhead's mask will look something like this--

    Here are a couple pages from the comic about a 7th century Viking outpost being preyed upon by an old adversary--

    Bear with me-- higher resolution images are on the way-

    Here you see her lurking in the foreground-

    Then she makes her move-- a man's gotta be careful after drinking all that beer and mead!

    This seemed apropos-- being a Swedish band and all-- and those Vikings got their night rocked all right!! And there were plenty of thrills!

    Test sketches for the characters Lorna Doone and Tara Falcone from our sci-fi/horror comic Heartbreaker-- can you guess which of the two might be the femme fatale?

    So, when I was young and impressionable there was this TV show called “The Paul Lynde Halloween Special” with this featured musical group- yeah it’s synced but cool nonetheless-

    A few years later I was rather impressed by this performance of Herbie Hancock’s “Rocket” -

    Watch the “robots” come to life- an amazing performance!

    I admit I’m somewhat ashamed- but it’s a rocking version of a rocking song and
    rather funny. So please avert your eyes after the first two thirds-

    Yet another vid I saw young and impressionable - gotta love the groove, Townshend’s power chords, and Entwistle’s lovely coral Fendersplorer

    These are the rough inks of the first two pages of four for the intro to our sci-fi/horror anthology Elsie the Bartender Tales: Heartbreakers.

    Elsie is the hostess for this anthology and subsequent ones hence the introduction- She works at bar a called The Subterranean located in a space station orbiting a mining planet- it primarily caters to miners getting some R&R as the name implies. But there are others who are not miners who might also be considered "subterraneans" if you get my drift.

    Elsie the Bartender Intro- Page 1.JPG

    Here you see her helping a couple of regulars get a cab ride home-

    In this page you get a shot of The Subterranean bar and its various denizens. The young downcast looking lad in the last frame will be regaled with three tales to give him different perspective on life--
