Promises 2

Promises 2

Finally found a sketch app for my Cintiq that’s half way decent and didn’t cost anything to save my work. So of course I drew Kiddo and Emil. I was still in my feels for them since yesterday’s tbt post was of how they first met way back in the day. My kids have come a long way since then 🙂

Leading Ladies of Illegal Tender

Postcard 2Not that I didn’t like the old postcard but ever since I finished Lily and Zen’s covers I wanted to do one of just the ladies of Illegal Tender. After all the comic is mainly about them… the boys are just there for eye candy and comic relief. For those who don’t know my girls from left to right:

Zen Love – super speed
Lily Breland – energy manipulation
Del Landau – super strength
Sonya Dey – Telekinesis and Telepathy

Issue #1 will be available for digital download 2016!!

Electric Lady

you got the look the God agree they want to see

Electric Lady

It’s been years since I’ve done a mock cover on my leading lady, Lily. I love how this came out – which was a great pick up after this weekend of failure. I have always liked the idea of the unassuming super hero. Del has the same look – she’s super strong but she’s this little 5’4 Jewish woman. Same with Kiddo – she’s the most powerful being in the universe but she’s this skinny, 17 year old volley ball player. She wears frilly shirts, writes in a diary and wants to be a doctor – she can also destroy everything in her path with a flick of her wrist. Alpha and John don’t have nearly as much raw energy as her. She even has the potential to control the energy and powers of other supers. Which is why the Agency will be gunning for her in issue #7.

Speaking of Murder Ink, I’m afraid this awesome pic comes with bad news. The premiere has been pushed by another week. I just don’t have nearly all the pages I want to have. So Murder Ink will (hopefully) premiere on the 20th. In the meantime… pics

First Flight

First FLight

Alpha wasn’t there for Kiddo’s first steps but he is one proud grandpa to be the one who teaches her to fly. Yup, that’s who she learns it from. Y’all ain’t ready to love Alpha, you’re just not ready yet but I’ll get you there. Because this is only the first of heart-melting things he does for his precious grand babies.

It’s not a secret that Lily is his favorite. They share the same power and like most girls she wants that steady father figure in her life – like how it was before her father died. This is not to say Alpha doesn’t get along with Erol and Hunter but his bonding with them isn’t nearly as whimsical. Nothing says ‘whimsy’ like a pink and purple sunrise, right?

Save My Love

Scan 14

I got the title from an episode of Justified 🙂

I know I usually do happy stuff but I drew this when Jae dumped me so… yeah…
I think I mentioned before that Darkly is pretty much defenseless – he doesn’t know how to fight and he doesn’t like using guns. And he can only run so far because he’s out of shape. And this will eventually happen in the comic – some dumb fool comes looking to mess with him not knowing his girlfriend has the power to make peoples heads explode. Well not really, I suppose she can crush their sculls with her telekinesis or make them go insane with her telepathy but whatever. Point is, don’t mess with Darkly cause she WILL find you

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



I.T. 5×14


Yeah, it’s still not that easy for these two. But they’re getting there. Just hold out hope that Emil will grow a pair and finally tell her. Good call on not doing it right now. Take note – don’t tell a girl your madly in love with her after telling her her father was a jerk that nearly made you murder one of your best friends

I love how Dominic was out partying while his younger brother was at home in bed. He has the ice pack for two reasons…

Zen’s hair meme

Zen13-unfinishedHere baby, there momma – everywhere daddy daddy – HAIR!

Zen was next up in line for a meme of her own. Plus if I did Darkly it wouldn’t make any sense. So here’s the blank meme:

The pony tail is her normal style so that one is kind of anh. As for pigtails she doesn’t like hair do’s that make her look like a little girl – she hates it when her age difference with Del is obvious so no pigtails for Zen. She likes the side ponytail – Del has been known to wear her hair like this and Zen thinks it looks classy 🙂 Zen doesn’t particularly like short hair on herself which is why she keeps it long. She’d look a little like Vivian with her hair short. Long? Well her hair is already long so I just made it a little longer and from her smile she likes it. Up do… she doesn’t hate it but she prefers her hair down and free

Zen and her wavy green locks belong to me

Illegal Tender 5×12

CCF29082014_00002Look how skinny Dominic used to be!! LOL He was a total twink. And yes, that little girl Emil refused to kill was in fact a twelve year old Sonya! I love Kiddo’s face – she’s in disbelief that Emil tied things together like this. And that her father could be so malicious. But then again he is a Reid and if they want to use their powers on you they’re gonna.

That normal woman is not really anyone important – her kids are not going to pop up later on and no one will come or revenge against Emil. I wanted to give her a striking appearance to signify what a big deal her death was. Emil has gotten away with murder – that’s what this is. But he lives with the guilt everyday so don’t think he just killed her a moved on with his life. The ‘stronger’ super that John is referring to is Sonya’s father but Emil had nothing to do with his death.
