Hey there, Ho there, blogging boys and girls. It has been an interesting month of May as the rain just hasn't let up, and BLOGGER has gone bersurko! I don't know about you folks but I was locked outta my own blog site for nigh onto three weeks, and I heard tell of worse by other bloggin buddies. Pffft! technology..... what can you expect right?
Well over here at MITCHELL STUDIOS we celebrate everything lo-tech... as one can plainly see by taking a groovy gander at my drawing table. This snap shot is actually from MS studios SOUTH. The scene at MS studios NORTH is even more untidy and revolting :)
Even the smallest sideways glance will show that I am really pulling out all the stops on this story for the creepy folks at BLOKES TERRIBLE TOMB OF TERROR. All the old school pen and ink techniques are employed here, crosshatch, wash, and stippling, it has all landed on these pages.... not to mention the table tops, walls and chairs...YEECH!

Hey Ghoulish gang members! I thought you might like to take a sweet sneak peek at a 6-page horror story I am brewing up. I can't say too much about it now, but in the weeks ahead, ( if all goes well ) you will be hearing a great deal more.
Till then kiddies.... stay out of the HOT seat :)

OKAY, okay, ok..... Even an ultra cool, totally enlightened, harmonic hero, like our SUPER GROOVY MAN can lose his cool once in awhile. Here 'Ol groove is just really having a flip out on accounta he needs to focus his chi power, align a few shakras, or metabolate, meditate ( or sumpin like that ) and everybody keeps buggin him!!! Whether it comes from the Mayor, to his young friend Mike, or over to his best goomba Tony, everybody is getting on his nerves!
Ahhhh well. It happens sometimes. See I just don't believe that anyone, anyone who is even one tenth human can keep their cool all the time... I mean Jesus.... no, literally Jesus dudes.... even he flipped his lid.... remember him turning over the tables in the temple??? That dude was ripped!
Anyway... I wanted to show that even though he mostly keeps his cool even our hero can have some cheese slippin off his cracker now and again.
Totally changing the subject now for a moment... did you know that in the development of the character Tony, it was decided that he is bald, but wears a toupee to make him appear more like his movie idol Charles Bronson. He is very self conscious about being bald, and thinks the chicks will dig him more if he looks like Bronson. I don't know why..... but that kind of vanity cracks me up :)
Peace Pals n' Gals.

Hurrah, hurray, hurah.... step right up! Witness the exciting, the amazing, the most death defying spectecal ever performed under the big top. Looks as though our hapless hero SUPER GROOVY MAN is being put to the test way back in those bygone days before he fully developed all his powers. Yes dear readers this is one of those most cherished of all comic book traditions, known as the " Flashback" or also in this case... " an ORIGIN story."
I can't post too much more about this page just now, but I am trying to do better with posting my blog, and keeping up with my out put, so I thought you might like to take a little groovy gander. Stay awake, and alert out there Kat's and Kiddies... and uh.... Oh Ya..... Never, Ever, play wiff guns!

I woke up an hour ahead of the 'ol alarm clock this morning, and decided to steal a bit of "me" time by heading to the studio, and busting out some colors on this dusty old SUPER GROOVY MAN page from last summer. It looks a lot more groovier with the vibrant retro colors applied... dontcha' think? Anyways... It's great to start your morning off with a FOOM!

Hey there Cats and Creeps! It is I your woebegone wondermaker. It seems it has been ages since I have posted a page worthy pusstule for you to puruse. At long last the solace has ended dear fiends. Before you is now displayed a dazzeling dapple of drama that in due time shall unfold itself into a veritable feast for the senses. TRANSLATION: It's a little scribbily scrawble that don't look like much now.... but just hold on there hommbres'. It's gunna be DYNAMITE! Truth be told the tortureous tides of winter have brought my comic chops to a grinding halt, but behold.... now as the sumptueous rays of spring appear I am renewed with great inspiration. Sheesh.... I better hang it up with the blabbity-blab before I make even me wanna heave :( Anyways... I did a little drawing gang, so I hopes ya all dig it dreamy like.

Hey there blogger Pals n' Gals! I was gonna title this doo-hickey "MAYHEM ON MONSTER ISLAND, but given the fact our hassled heroine is on the receiving end of a monster-ific psyonic blast from a mysterious beastie, I decided to mash on the moniker above instead. There can be no denying we are smack dab in the middle of the woeful winter doldrums, but as the snow piles up higher than the wads of cash you are laying down to pay for your winter heating bills... don't let your blues get in the way from enjoying a comic book or two. Things could be worse you know... you could be stuck on MONSTER ISLAND!

Here we go again, another page from issue#2 of ZOMBIE SUB -920, with that irrepressible redhead finagling her way aboard a zombie submarine. Her nursing skills are par excellente', but the rules are: " NO GIRLS ALLOWED". Does that stop our heroic heroine?.... NoOooooooooo WAY! Her powers of persuasion are far beyond those of mortal men, ( or mortal women for that matter ) did I mention in real life I am marrying this wonderful woman? Ya... true story... we got engaged on New Years Eve. So make with the congrats all you slap-happy comic book geek-azoids, and HAPPY NEW YEAR! one and all.
