Kids Read Comics!

Hey folks!

Just wanted to post up a little advertisement for Kids Read Comics, a free convention-like even that promotes all-ages comics. It will take place from June 12th to June 13th in Dearborn, Michigan and will feature all sorts of awesome artists and workshops, for kids and adults alike! You should totally check it out if you're in the area.

For more information on this awesome event, Check out the official Kids Read Comics! website.

*Sigh.* I wish I could be there.

Anyway, don't forget to listen to the Art & Story podcast, as well! It's super-rad and great for those looking to make independent comics. Very inspirational, educational, and entertaining!

Take care, folks!

Hey folks!

Just updating to get stuff out of my brain, I guess.

I'd really like to do a series of original acrylic paintings with a unified theme, perhaps with the intention of selling the originals and prints of the image (tough to say how attached I would become, hehe).

I'm also pretty certain I'd like to try my hand at designing a t-shirt for Threadless. If my design were to be picked, the money would be really helpful right now and hey, Folks could be wearing a Drew Green on their shirts! How rad would that be? ;D

I haven't started sketching pages for "Charlie Dubai" just yet (which may or may not be fully-titled "The Adventurous Charlie Dubai" - I can't seem to get the logo to look right with the extra text but we'll see what happens). I'm still having some trouble designing Merbert, an important character in the issue. Think nerdy many directions I could go in for that!

But it's certainly on my mind. I think I might have had a sick day yesterday - tired all day, I'm not sure why! So I'll have to make good use of today. No TV for me, I guess!

Anyway, enough rambling. I just like to document where my mind is at certain periods in life, that's what a blog is good for. After all, that's what people used to use diaries and journals for! They wrote on this stuff called paper, but I wouldn't know anything about that.

Hopefully more art soon. Take care!

MerDrew for Charlie Dubai

Andrew Merman

Hey folks!

I had been designing some merpeople for the first issue of "Charlie Dubai," and decided to draw myself as a merman to promote the official Charlie Dubai blog!

Visit the blog here!

Take care!

Zelda Double Feature!

Hey folks!

Here, have a couple of Zelda images from me.

Hyrule's Hero
Midna Commission

The first one was just a fun time-killer. This is the kind of Link I would draw if I, say, were to do a Legend of Zelda comic or something. Like that'll ever happen.

The second was a commission for a friend, her third in fact! Midna is a truly-awesome character, so much personality. Shame she'll probably never show up in another Zelda game (see the ending of Twilight Princess and you'll understand).

Charlie Dubai Issue 1 Concepts

CharlieDubai issue1 character concepts

Hey folks!

Just some character concepts for Charlie Dubai (issue 1). Yeah, strange that I'm starting what could potentially be a series with a nautical theme...

click the thumbnail and go to the flicker entry to see larger versions of the image. Funtimes.

Seriously, when I was coming up with my simple "first comic" idea, I told myself I wanted to draw some freakin' mermaids. And here we are, with a freakin' mermaid!

From left to right:

Charlie Dubai, the title character, wearing a diving suit she willed with her powers. I have a serious diving suit fetish, and I'm talking crazy bubble head diving suits, not spandex and snorkels.

Merlain, as I like to call her. A mermaid that Charlie meets in the issue.

The ferryman, who doesn't really have a name yet. He's the first person you see Charlie talking to in the comic. He loves yogurt, hence the spoon-for-a-hand.
