    Some of you know of my friend Tess Fowler. She's got a little nephew Dominic(aka Shorty) who's been having it rough with some health problems.

    He's a big Star wars and Indiana Jones (and Short-Round) fan and loves art. His faves are Chewie, Han, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Stinky, Ahsoka, Indy, pretty much just the good guys- and girls.

    Last month he had an accident at school when the brakes on his wheelchair failed and he was tossed out into the street and broke the fall with his face! He's doing better, and even had his hair cut last weekend and donated it to Locks Of Love (like Sal!).

    I got to meet him at San Diego this year, as did a ton of folks! Shorty gets around and makes friends everywhere he goes.

    He was much happier to meet She-Hulk than me- but hey, I can't blame him!

    He loves getting mail, and he's even got his own myspace page now.

    I started a little sketchbook for him and took it to the CGS Super Show last weekend. Here are some of the sketches I've gotten so far, in order of how they are in the sketchbook-

    Here's a Star Wars sketch I did for "Radio Wayne" Cordova.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/IMG_0061.jpg]

    He had an R2 themed sketchbook.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/2843746382_85f93dd9b0.jpg]

    Wayne was responsible for getting the 501st to the show.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/cgsss08/IMG_0064.jpg]

    Did this sketch card for CGS' Bryan Deemer- it's based on the "Puppet Bryans".

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/cgsss08/IMG_0467.jpg]

    WW sketch card I did for the Wonder Woman Day art auction.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/cgsss08/IMG_0381.jpg]

    Here's a sketch I got from Kenny Durkin- for FREE!

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/cgsss08/IMG_0448.jpg]

    I bought a pin-up book and before I knew it Kenny had drawn this.

    And check out these great balloon figures Mario Muscar(Beauty and The Geek) and his wife Jenn got from Pasquale the Balloonisimo!

    Got two more today added to the sketchbook.

    Jason Negan stopped by the office this afternoon and was in a drawing mood...

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/jasonhanchewiesm.jpg]

    And I felt like playing with some markers and trying my left hand (it's the one I normally draw with) at drawing an Ahsoka...

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/linwahsokasm.jpg]

    Hope to get a few more here this week and at the next MSCA dinner meeting.

    Will you stop hitting on Lin?? I can't turn my back on you for a sec... Oooooooh! You were talking about the drawing.


    Nevermind.


    Too cool, Lin. I'm so proud of you for doing that.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, it's been a lot of fun. Jon Carroll was cool enough to run it around for me when I was behind my table.

    I really got a kick out of seeing some of Katie Cook's sketches. I've got to pick me up a set of watercolors for sure!

    Went over to Antone and Janet's today to draw and watch movies. Kev joined us for lunch. Had a fun time watching Batman cartoons and Underworld movies.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/IMG_2488.jpg]

    Antone was working on some Action Man comic pages and some commission sketches.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/vaderbustsm.jpg]

    I decided to draw another Darth Vader. Still have to finish the colors.

    Antone and Janet are going to draw something for Shorty before I send his sketchbook off.

    Damn, Lin... Even I squealed over the Vader sketch!

    I love the Grover. But, I'm a Grover fanboy, so of course I would.

    Thanks!

    Here it is in color...hope you dig it.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/vaderbustcolsm.jpg]

    Yeah, I'm a big Grover fan, too. Maybe one day I'll see if I can get Kev to help me make a big-eared green Grover puppet!

    Lin

    PS- Heard from Shorty's mom that he had his Jedi braid cut off this week. Some of the local Jedi Knights came over and performed the ceremony for him. His mom said he loved it.

    Here is a sketch I did at the latest MSCA dinner meeting. I did it for Radio Wayne Cordova's birthday-

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/r2d2kickballsm.jpg]

    He wanted a kick ball sketch, and is a huge R2 fan.

    Here are some Red Mullet fan art Andrew collected at the meeting-

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/IMG_4278.jpg]

    And a sketch for Traci that Rachel did at the mieeting-

    Here are a couple sketches I did this weekend for Kevin's sketchbook-

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/slimersm.jpg]

    Slimer

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/muleysm.jpg]

    Muley

    I've been promising to draw in it for months now, but he either doesn't have it with him when I've volunteered or he forgets to ask. I'll probably add a Muppet sketch in there later.

    Speaking of Kevin's sketches- this is one he got from Adam Hughes when we were at Binder's in Atlanta.

    Sent Shorty's sketchbook off to his aunt Tess yesterday. I asked her to draw something in it and give it to him the next time she's down in his neck of the woods.

    Lin

    PS- Since Traci and Nicki are kind of new to the whole con-sketch world, here's a link to see some of what others get.

    http://gallery.comicgeekspeak.com/sketches/gallery

    You can search by artist, convention, subject, etc.

    Have fun!

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/gpwcwsiggraysm.jpg]

    Pencil sketch I did for one of the guys on the CGS forums. It's from a photo I took at the 2008 San Diego Comic Con of Catwoman from Gotham Public Works.
