The repository for miscellaneous artwork I have felt compelled, for
whatever reason, to upload and show off. Some of it has nothing to do with
the comic, some of it is just sketches or studies of TWB characters, a
few are bits that were posted to be attached to a particular strip, and
I linked it here so that you don't have to search through the Archives
to find it.
There will be no scheduled update here, something gets added pretty
much whenever I feel like it.
Guest Strips: Occasionally, if they ask
nice, I've done guest strips for other comics.
Fan Art: Sometimes, if the inspiration strikes,
I'll do some fan art for other strips:
Minds: "Mel" is the presumably-false name given by a lady that struck
and injured PM's artist while he was cycling. The robot is one of his bad-guy
characters called an "Inlay". As you can see, I can do robots better than
people. I did this back in late '02 or early '03 as I recall.
of Science: See here
for the explanation.

Quickie little snow-related comic
starring Doc and Snowshoe.
Two cool ones here.
Doc, Swampy and the Can
from the informal AO "Best PB Comic" poll from Dec, 2002.
I got a WACOM pressure-sensitive graphics tablet for just after Thanksgiving
'02, and I've been playing around with some of it's capabilities. These
two are pure sketch- just scribbles 'til something looked right. The tablet's
pen is a cool interface, just flip it over and the system automatically
switches to the "eraser" application, just like a real pencil. So there
was some adjusting and I erased a few totally-wrong lines, but all told,
both sketches only took ten or twenty minutes each.
They look precisely like scanned copies of my "real" pencil drawings,
for which I'm suitably amazed. The logo at the top of this page is similarly
rough-sketched. I'm not yet ready to do an all-digital comic, but it's
been handy for things like shading and coloring. Without further ado:
