Joplin Sketch Night is changing! Since we were just meeting at my house, we've had to keep it to a small group of people that we know. But now for the first time, it will be open to anyone who wants to show up and draw. We will be meeting at Hurley's Heroes Comics & Games (10th and Maiden Lane) from 7-9pm on the second Wednesday of the month. (Sometimes it might have to be the first Wednesday, but we'll post it here if that's the case.)
So if you're in the mood to hang out with other artists and maybe tackle a sketch challenge or two... see you there!
Also, make sure you check out the Joplin Sketch Night Facebook page for updates, etc.

At the last Sketch Night, we did some more ink splatter drawings (inspired by the incredible Daily Monster blog by Stefan Bucher). I was really happy with the creatures that sprang out of the ink this time! My wife Laura even joined in and did the two below! Fun stuff... I highly recommend it, if you haven't tried it yet.

During April's sketch night, we tried a new type of creature jam. This involved folding the paper into three sections. One artist did the head/shoulders, and passed it on to the next who did the arms and body, and then on to the last artist, who did the legs. The trick was that by folding the paper, you had no way of seeing what the other artists had already drawn. Once they were all done, we unfolded them and got a tremendous laugh out of how crazy they were (and yet they made some sort of twisted sense).

We're back! We took a few months off to prep for conventions, but things have settled down and people have been clamoring for more Sketch Night! So, we'll be meeting the last weekend of every month once again... starting Saturday, April 24 @ 8pm.
We've got a great new drawing challenge to try out this time that should be a riot... hope to see you there!

In case you haven't heard... my comic Evil Ain't Easy is currently in this month's Zuda Comics competition! For those of you who might not know, Zuda Comics is an online division of DC Comics. Every month ten comic strips are chosen for the international competition, and votes from online visitors to the site determine the winner. This winner is then rewarded a year-long contract with DC Comics to create 52 more strips for the site.
Evil Ain’t Easy is my humor strip that tells the story of a maniacal scientist bent on world domination who is constantly thwarted by the everyday annoyances of life. He is accompanied by the laid-back henchman he created and a moody, little, old landlady.
It’s quite an honor to even be selected for the competition! So far, readers seem to enjoy the humor of the comic. It’s pretty light-hearted compared to a lot of the other comics on Zuda. I hope that uniqueness appeals enough to people to get their vote, as there are several great comics in this month’s competition.
So anyway... I need your help! Please take a few minutes to read the comic, register, and VOTE for it (registering is quick, easy, and spam-free)! Please also rate it, favorite it, and leave a comment... all these things will help it win.
Evil Ain't Easy will only win if we can really spread the word and get people to vote for it! I've setup a production blog at evilainteasy.com to help promote the comic, and there you'll find lots of sketches, downloads, and more! We're going to be running a few different contests to promote the comic, so stay tuned to that blog for details... and you might win some free stuff!
Thanks in advance for anything you can do to help out!
