Happy Holidays!!!

Happy Holidays from me and the BatFamily!

Announcement for Holiday Image

Every year I try to do one, sometimes 2 (one for comics fans, one for dino fans.) So today at 8pm mountain time I will post it. SInce some people have inquired about buying it. It will be $800. The darn thing took me 9 hours to draw, it has 9 characters on it,  and Jess asked if it was a cover so you know I went all out!

So if you're interested in buying it same rules apply as they do on Sketch Saturday, first come first served. But the one piece per month rule will be lifted as this isn't a SS piece everyone can try. If you just want to see it, I'll post it here and on Twitter:) I hadn't planned on selling it until I started getting requests....

If no one buys it I might make a print of ir for a show next year:)

Happy Sketch Saturday! Gotham's got snow!

Image 3 in my theme month of winter in Gotham. This week Nightwing. I wonder who Santa will have me draw next week;)

And then a quick Amazing Spiderman, from the new movie. The costume's a bit strange but it's kind of fun! I'm getting a spidey following on twitter so expect more of him.

In other news, working on the cover to my new project this weekend. It should be announced (FINALLY) the beginning of the new year, so I'm thrilled the Mayans' weren't right;P. Also got to do some cool character designs for DC this week! One is a favorite character of mine, and that's ALWAYS fun, cooler still he got approved! I'll also be doing some more covers for some other books, well at least one other for April, also with a character I did the redesign for! 

All and all a good year. Now if I can get Dan to give me Wally end of next year or in 2014, everything will be perfect!

This Sunday, do you suck at your religion?

A very funny comic about the suckieness of religion.

I'm gonna do something I know I shouldn't, but I feel it needs to be addressed. What happened this week in Newton was horrible, words can't describe how horrible this is, just like what happend last week and again in Aurora. And I thinking talking about this is a good thing, get your anger out. My Twitter feed exploded and I had to stay off for most of the day. People are angry and lashing out. Lots of "Don't say his name, he wants the press!" and "Fuck you gun owners and your rights!" And of course the gun owners "It's my god given right to own a gun!"But it's good to vent and Twitter is a great place for it.

Unfortunately they also decided to take 'action'! Now action is good, we need people to get off their asses and make a difference. But this isn't really action, it's reaction, it's all feeling and outrage and no thought or introspection.

I own a gun/rifle. I've fired it like 3 times. It's not a big gun, but it does hold 9 shots. Why do I have it? Protection. WELL, you say, people are more likely to be shot than to be able to use that gun for protection! Fair enough. But I live 40 minutes from the nearest police station. Sure they can drive faser than I do on regular roads, but they will most likely crash as the roads aren't that great, they're all dirt... All 20 miles of them. So if something does happen, like say people come to rob us, or drug runners from Mexico show up, at least I have something, the police will always be too late. (A couple of grifters killed a guy out this way a few years ago, nobody knew for days.) I've actually thought of getting a shotgun and a handgun just to be sure a weapon can be gotten too easily, just in case.

So I'm being 'asked' by these people to simply give up my gun, my right. Would this have saved those kids in Newton? Maybe, maybe not. But am I willing to give up the safety of my family for it. No. But Brett, those were children! Yes and it's very, very sad all deaths are. But giving rights way is a slippery slope. Look at the Homeland Security laws that gave the government so much power over us, and our personal lives.

So what should be done? The Left will demand action so why not take this opportunity to really look at what we can do to mitigate further shootings, WITHOUT taking away peoples rights. What has happened here, really happened, facts, not crazy assumptions. Limiting shots to guns? Limiting ammo? Limit ful auto? I'm not sure, but whatever is decided, lets not doing it hysterically, lets do it with knowledge and thought. Not everyone lives in cities with easy access to police and help. Some people still live in rural areas where help might be hours away, should these people give up their only means of protection?

So to sum up, not everyone lives under the same conditions, calm down and think don't just react.

EDIT: Laurell K. Hamilton retweeted this on Twitter and I think EVERYONE needs to read this.



I'll leave the comments open but if I get hysterical comments I will close them.

Yesterdays Sketch Saturday, Robin! And Batman and Nightwing...

Robin from yesterdays' Sketch Saturday. Just one last week, lots to do and little time!

This Sketch Saturday, it's Grifter time!

20 years ago this past week I received a call from Jim Lee in regards to my Homage Studios Talent Search submission. It went pretty well as I started working there a few months later. So in honor of the HSTS that was in the back of WildCats 2 I drew up an old buddy, Cole Cash, AKA Grifter.

On another note I finished up my Teen Titans runs today, just finished drawing the last page (not page 20, but the last pages that needed to be drawn.) Later today or early tomorrow I start on my next DC book. A happy sad kind of day.

Anywho, more info when I can finally talk about it!



Monday, November 5, 2012

Messing around

I had an idea last night so I spent a few hours getting the gist of it down on paper. I blame nothing good on TV for this.



Saturday, November 3, 2012

Happy Sketch Saturday! How about a Joker to start things off?

I'm just about done with my time in Gotham and on TT. Just a few more page of TT 16 left. Since Wednesday was All Hallow's Eve I figured something a bit more sinister this week, and since he's been in TT the joker fits the bill!



Sunday, October 28, 2012

This Sunday, go read this!

Go read this!!!!

And then go check out this guys website!

Jerry Coyne has it as "The Republicans platform in one image." I wasn't sure I agreed with that and then I thought about it and well it really is the only thing the Republicans have actually made clear, Mitt and Ryan keep dodging all the other issues... Oh this and Obama's a bad president I guess... Idiots.



Saturday, October 27, 2012

Happy Sketch Saturday! It's time to salute!

Captain America! Not sure if I got the costume right, he seems to have 3 different ones now....

I was trying to do Spidey 2099.... didn't work out.



Sunday, October 21, 2012

This Sunday, was 'God' a child and them crazy Mormons!

And this doesn't even mention the magic underwear;) And you're supposed to respect this? You're supposed ignore this insane BS and just sit quietly and not say anything? Do you see how crazy this is? 

How you see Mitt right now is how I see all religion. I love the mythology behind it, but the faith people put into it without evidence? They remind me of that woman in the commercial for the car insurance. The one where 'They can't put anything on the internet that isn't true." 

I also came across this... Was Yahweh child god? Interesting stuff, if true, it's a good place to start looking for a Yahweh's origins. I do love the part about Baal being his main nemesis in the Torah, yet Baal texts NEVER mention him. In this context it makes crazy shit he does in the bible a bit easier to understand. Doesn't change anything just explains a few actions.

OK, back to the grind for me, after this DPS 8 pages left of TT.



Saturday, October 20, 2012

Happy Sketch Saturday! It's Wolverine!

Wolverine was the first superhero I started drawing, he was the reason I draw them today. It's been 10 years or so since I've drawn him, but I still remember how. I did have to do a quite google for the robot;)

I'm gonna have to get one of those fancy banner things if I go to any more shows, SO COOL!



Sunday, October 7, 2012

This Sunday, GIve me an 'F', give me a 'U'!

For you're viewing pleasure. Sums up my thought on Theologians quite well.

  And then there is this gem about some REALLY stupid cheerleaders (I know, surprising!);P This actually bring up something that has happened to me on twitter a few times. Religious people claiming their right are being violated because they CAN'T put God in government. I was told gay marriage violated Christian rights! That's right. People doen't seem to understand that THEIR rights end when it comes to another person. This is why you don't see Atheists trying to pass laws that would ban people teaching their kids Christianity/any other religion or sending them to Christian Schools. We understand this is a secular country and even though we don't agree with these things it's your right to do them. So why can't the religious get this? Is it their over inflated persecution complex? A mind numbingly poor understanding of US history? Or is this more of their 'if we say it enough it will become true' trope?

I'll make it easy for you, YOU have certain freedoms, freedom of speech (except for yelling fire in a theater.) You have a right to practice WHATEVER religion you want, or a right to practice NONE. BUT, you don't have the right to inflict your religions ideas on other who don't want them. THIS is why all these stupid gay marriage bans are tossed by the courts, they violate another persons rights, their right to NOT practice your stupid ass bigotry laden religion. Because lets be honest, it's not because your book says this, it's because YOU have a problem with it. You're just using your book to hide behind. Their gay marriage does not effect you AT ALL.

Again, there is no evidence for ANY religion, so why should others be FORCED to follow something that is blatantly false? Yes, the US has a democratic voting process, but we are a republic. That means the many CAN'T vote away the fews rights. EVERYONE IS EQUAL, deal with it and move the hell on. The same goes for the animal rights jackasses who keep trying to take away our right to proteins that humans need to survive. Humans have been eating mostly meats for almost 2 million years. We have evolved to NEED them. If you don't like it, don't eat them, bitch all you want try to make me feel bad, I'll simply ignore you. I WILL not try to force YOU to eat meat like you are trying to force me to eat those twigs and berries I can't stomach.

That's all for this week

Happy Sketch Saturday! Superman and SHAZAM!

In a cool new outfit from Superman 0. Not sure what the deal is with it, permanent? Hopefully!

And then SHAZAM! in his new diggs!

This Sunday, it's Blasphemy Day!

Today is the day you exercise your free speech! So Feck off!

Anywho, with all the crap going on in the Middle East over a lame ass movie ment to piss them off (and they totally fell for that, I'm sure the insults were subtle and well hidden too;P) I really haven't felt like bloggin' about it. Killing people over a movie or a few cartoons or a few remarks? Disgusting, this is what religion offers, so to quote Sam Jackson, "Wake the FUCK up!" If you can't see what's going on and extract that this is what the uber religious offer then you need to go back to school. You now, that thing that the uber religious are afraid of because you might actually learn things that makes sense and that will get you to question all the utter crap you've been told.

It also looks like Muhammad wasn't real. There is no record of him outside the Koran. And here's another interesting thing, Islam started 1,200 years ago, 300 years before Muhammad was said to have been born. So all they have is a book to back them up as well... That sounds familiar... oh that's right, just like Jesus!

Now back to reality, they found an 'ancient' stream bed on Mars! I used the bunny ears cause I have stream beds like that from THIS years rain on my property. Cool!



Edit: Since the idea of 'Moderate Muslims' has come up in the comments I offer you this (it was all I could find in a quick search:

Only Turkey and Jordan would be considered moderate as a country. After seeing how bad Egypt came out I have little hope for some of the other more oppressive counties.

Happy Sketch Saturday! It's not Clobberin' Time.

Poor Thing.. he'll never be as badass as the Hulk. 

A quick Kevin of the Apemen!

And then my Red Robin redesign in color! Andrew and me messing around.

Teen Titans trade is a New York Times bestseller!

Here's the list! So I'm now officially a New York Times Bestselling Artist. I'm told this is like being knighted, so you must now all refer to me as NYT Bestselling Artist Brett Booth when you refer to me;P

This is good news as I'm worried my TV speakers are starting to go:/



Sunday, September 23, 2012

Er... Happy Sketch Saturday?

Sorry I keep forgetting to post these here. Anyways a redesigned Catman, just for fun. I didn't like the Huntress I was working on first. And when I can post the other actual redesign I did for another DC character this week I will!

Also just finishing up TT 15 today. I should be starting my final issue next week!



Saturday, September 15, 2012

Happy Sketch Saturday! It's a bit FISHY this week!

TheA-man. Those scales are a pain in the butt!

And this is an old character of mine. I've never drawn him before this and I'm not sure I'm happy with it. I must ponder it more.

9 Warning Signs of an Amateur Artist

I've been getting lots of people looking for art advice on twitter lately. They send me pictures and ask questions (always a good thing!) But I have noticed that some of those pictures are unfinished, like they started it then stopped, like they got bored or were having too many problems with the legs or the hands (trust me, I know how this goes!) And even recently I was asked about colleges with comics classes.

In January I will have been working in the comics biz for 20 years. I graduated from college (they discouraged comic work, or at least some of the teachers did. I did it anyways) in 92 with a 2 year degree (degrees are pretty mush useless in comics, but I figured is I flamed out I could always go back for something else.) I REALLY have little to no knowledge of what's out there school wise now, so I'm pretty useless there. BUT you do pick up things, and even now I'm still learning, which brings me to the point of this post.

Today on the twitter, I came across this; 9 Warning Signs of an Amateur Artist. This is fantastic! If you want to be a professional comic artist, writer, inker, colorist then THIS is your Bill of Rights, you're 10 Commandments. I will admit I do fall into the last one a bit, but I am trying to reach out (I have to say, twitter is great for that!)

Go read! Learn! Enjoy! And then DO!



Sunday, September 9, 2012

Happy Sketch.... Sunday?

First off, NOT for sale. I did this for Andrew Dalhouse, he's doing some prints for the New York Comic Con, so this will be inked and colored soon! Stop buy his table when you get there! 



Saturday, September 1, 2012

Happy Sketch Saturday!

This weeks' Sketch Saturday is the Earth 2 Superman!

Now we have some character designs. This was my redesign for Stargirl, Geoff is partial to her old design so they didn't use it. 

Here are a few characters done for the Superman Annual.

Both of their powers originated from Helspont thus the influence in their appearance.

And finally my Earth 2 Catwoman design. DC decided they wanted to go a different way with her mask so that was changed. I like both, but the other one doesn't look cat enough for me. I do like her hair:)



Sunday, August 26, 2012

This Sunday... fuck I hate people.

Just read this, about a bunch of religious zealot Muslims trying to burn a mentally handicapped girl for POSSIBLY burning a page from the Koran.

I have no words other than religion makes people fucking stupid. You take otherwise rational people tell them someone has 'hurt' their imaginary god or 'holy' book and they fucking flip out.... They are trying to KILL people!!! OVER a book?!?!?!?! We're only slightly better in the US, but people who burn bibles and the like do get death threats. We're just lucky the majority of the US is pretty darn lazy;P

Honestly I'm almost to the point of buying all the bibles and other holy texts at the book store and having a big old bon fire, just for the fun of it. Unfortunately there's a drought (although we've had a good bit of rain this year.) so I'm not sure if the burn ban is still in effect.

If your book is SOOOO damn important that it demands that you KILL people so it doesn't get damaged then maybe YOUR GOD should take care of that personally. After all these are HIS words right? Funny how he never seems to say anything or do anything about it.



Happy Sketch Saturday! This Week Cyclops!

Was feeling nostalgic! All from memory! GO X-Factor!



Saturday, August 18, 2012

Happy Sketch Saturday!

I've been a bit busy these last few weeks, things are afoot at DC with this Joker thing. I've started on TT 15 (which is part of the whole Joker story.) So I'm deeply immersed in Gotham City right now:)

Anyways this was this weeks Sketch Saturday, Earth 2 Robin!

This was last weeks SS, Earth 2 Batman!

And this was me messing around! It's the Blue Falcon and Dyno Mutt. Blue Falcon was one of my favorite cartoon characters as a child, along with Space Ghost!

Also, I did a 4 page backup for Red Hood 0, so don't forget to pick that up! It's Jokerific!

I have a few comments I need to read as well, just so busy!



Sunday, August 5, 2012

Wonder Woman and Redbird!

I'm guessing it's a temp costume for Damian, he's been grounded from being Robin in Batman Inc. Kinda fun thou.. a bit simple but he is just a kid:) It has not been sold and is now up for grabs to anyone.


And a Wonder Woman I did for the Aurora Rise Benefit. Go! BID! WIN! And help out a good cause:)
