Top Notch

Another cover featuring Alpha! The song Top Notch by Manchester Orchestra always reminds me of him – basically about something terrible that happened and there’s nothing anyone can do to make it right. And that’s how Alpha feels most of the time. That by creating supers he’s made this impossible situation where nothing he does will make things right again. My main ‘villain’ turns out to be my main ‘hero’ – how often does that happen?

Illegal Tender issue #1 will be available for digital purchase in 2016!!

Twin Tuesday


Every tuesday or so I’m going to post something about the Breland twins. Today’s post: Erol is older than Hunter by about a minute and a half. Making Hunter the baby of the family

Throw Back Thursday

Sonya14-unfinishedIllegal Tender has a lot of history. The characters used to be in several different story lines, they used to look different, act different and have different jobs. Here’s a look at Sonya’s look throughout the years for #TBT



Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay

Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay

Time for a little Canon-Back Story: Emil used to work for the Agency and while in their thrall he developed a pretty serious addiction to heroin. It ‘helped him sleep’ after all the horrible stuff they used to order him to do. He was two steps away from going to the detention center (and be put down) because his carelessness in the field when Dominic managed to get him out of the agency and into the I.T. crew. During his difficult withdrawal period Dominic took Emil out to a rundown hunting cabin – which he had just purchased and planned to fix up. To help keep Emil away from drugs they spent nearly a year out at the cabin rebuilding everything – one of the things they built together was the dock.

One of Emil’s favorite things to do it skinny dip 🙂

In my head – it’s a floating dock rather than one that’s rooted by the poles (in this case they’re like a buoy) They help keep the dock up.

Just a little something to show Kiddo’s life with Alpha isn’t all that bad. Despite being underhanded he’s actually nice to his granddaughter – he dotes on her and gives her anything she wants. Including a room that faces East. Yes unlike nearly everyone on the I.T. crew Kiddo is a morning person. I think the only other morning person is Del and sometimes Sonya. But Kiddo likes getting up to watch the sun – after all she is pure energy, so when a giant energy source rises in the sky she gets up. And because she sort of demanded it she gets a room with an unobstructed view. Not that Alpha tore down buildings to give her that… no…

It’s the return of the headband from issue two – one of the few things she was able to keep after moving in with Alpha. Since the other girls were all dressed in pink and purple I put her in green and blue. Even though there’s a trope about redheads that wear green 🙂

…that balcony might get revamped tomorrow

Felt like drawing the boss lady in not-so-boss-lady clothes. Been a while since I’ve drawn a regular pic of Del by herself… with clothes on. Plus I got a bunch of new patterns from Colourlovers.com that I want to use (only got to use one though)

Kind of got a weather theme going on right now – with Zen in the rain and Del in the summer heat. It’s mostly about the dress – I wanted to do something sheer – not sure why it’s rather hard to get it to look right – and summery! I think it should be known that I hate hats. They don’t fit my head irl and I don’t like drawing them but whatever. Del is so cute 🙂
