Inktober Day 01

October is the greatest month of the year, and I will hear no arguments to the contrary. The weather cools, the leaves change, we watch a ton of horror movies, make costumes, pick apples, and sit on the deck in the chilly fall dusk smoking cigars and sipping bourbon.  That last one might be just me, though.
One added point in October's favor is the annual Inktober challenge of 31 drawings in 31 days. I have never successfully accomplished this feat, but some years I've done better than others. Like Sisyphus, I will again be struggling up that mountain, but hopefully you will enjoy the show.
As always, the best place to follow my work is via Instagram, but I will also be updating here and tumblr when time allows.

Masters of the Universe Original Art Sale

The other day I came across a page of original art from a He-Man and the Masters of the Universe fan comic I did to test the square format I used on RiGBY.
I gave it some quick color and put the original art on eBay. Check it out!

Bride of Frankenstein's Monster

I'm trying something different with this pin-up of the Monster's Bride. If you would like to own this Halloween special you can find it eBay this very moment.
The piece is on 8.5 x 11 card stock and drawn with archival ink if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.  If this goes well, I might make this a regular thing instead of putting art up on etsy or my bigcartel shop.


EDIT: The piece has now sold. Thank you to everyone who took a look.

Free State Con Wrap

Thank you to everyone who came out to Free State in Lawrence on Saturday.  There's not much I enjoy more than talking about Screamland and doing sketches.
So, thanks to everyone who bought books, art, or just stopped by to say they liked Screamland and wanted more (there are lots of you)!
Thanks again!

Cons and Podcasts

This weekend I'll be appearing at Free State Con in Lawrence, KS with an armful of Screamland trades, original art, and even the last few remaining copies of RiGBY #1.  Come by if you like old style Cons that are more about comics than washed up television actors.

I was also a guest on the very funny podcast, War Rocket Ajax. We discuss all my different projects as well as monster movies, Masters of the Universe and Cracker Barrel.  I've been a listener to the show since the old days, so it was a thrill to finally be on.

Below I've attached some of the Halloween themed Inktober drawings I've been posting on my instagram and tumblr.

More Lee Leslie

"The Bright Knight Returns" with apologies to Frank Miller.

Dropping a quick line to note that most of my daily sketch work has been posted to Tumblr instead of this blog. I will maintain this blog as a place for major announcements and such, but for sketches and in progress pics check out my Tumblr.

RiGBY Returns

RiGBY has updated for the first time in awhile thanks to Kevin Gritzke.  Gritz is a great friend who previously helped out with color on RiGBY and SCREAMLAND while contributing a pin-up for Goggle-GirlThe newest RiGBY, features Gritz drawing and coloring over one of my digital layouts, but going forward he will be handling all of the art chores himself with only character designs and reference from me.

We might not be able to get a new page out every week, but you'll certainly be getting them much more frequently know that Kevin's on board.

Goggle-Girl #1

So here's the deal, my daughter created this awesome super-hero, Goggle-Girl, one day after we bought her a pair of swim goggles, and it kind of got out of hand.  She invented a whole world and mythology for her character complete with enemies and allies. When she stared telling me these stories, I drew them out, and then she went back and filled in the dialogue.

If you like fun, all-ages comics please download GOGGL-GIRL #1 for whatever price you'd like at the following link.  You'll get a hi-res full color pdf, and all the money we raise goes towards Eleanor's 529 College Fund.
