Supes and Peter PPan_1

My friend Seth Joseph came up with this idea.  Since Robin Williams and Christopher Reeve were such good friends, it’s Superman flying with Peter Pan.  Enjoy!

 

Pretty excited to launch a new portfolio site!  Go check it!

I’d like to thank my creative team for their help with this strip:

I keep getting annoyed with new Oklahoma legislature.  It’s usually incredibly backwards…but what can you expect from one of the most conservative states in the union.  The latest disgrace is HB 1895 which is going before the House of Reps on Feb 4th, 2013.  It is proposing to cut all funding to the Oklahoma Arts Council to save a measly $4 million dollars of a $6.8 billion dollar budget.

How do I fight back?  The only way a graphic artist can; infographs.  I’ve whipped up two that I think illustrate just how little money we’re talking about to run the OAC for a full year.  I encourage you, if you agree, to take these bad boys and put them everywhere. Contact your rep and tell him/her to vote against this pile of crap. Also, here is the official Arts Council’s response to the bill.

I was busy at the end of the year making two pretty fun sports mascots. The first is for a website called KC Kingdom.  His name is Gerald and he has a fleet of Kansas themed minions. The other was for a 9u baseball team out of Long Island, NY. Let me know if you’d need an animal-playing-sports drawing…it’s apparently my specialty.

 

Happy Holidays ya numb skulls!…and yes, that’s my dog done up like the dog from How the Grinch Stole Christmas. You’re welcome.

 

It’s a Holiday miracle! I’ve decided to take orders for Christma-I mean, Holiday Cards this season, however supplies are limited. So act fast  and make sure you get your personalized cards before my hand gives out!

The “Holiday Card Package” includes a custom illustration, up to 100 5″ x 7″ professionally printed cards on heavy card stock, shipped directly to your home, and a digital copy of your image to deck the halls of all your social networks. All that for only $200! And the first three orders get a $25 discount.

I know what you’re thinking, “but Dan, I was going to do ANOTHER standard photo-card of my family this year, just like every year, just like everyone else.” That’s fine, if you’re into that sort of thing. But for those of you that want a piece of one-of-a-kind ART* this season, now’s your chance. And remember, the first THREE people to place an order get it at the discounted price of $175!

Orders must be in by December 1st! All transactions will be done through Paypal. After the payment I’ll e-mail you to get the details of your custom card. If you have any questions, please e-mail me at danjodon@gmail.com or leave a comment below.

HURRY AND GO PLACE YOUR ORDER!!

*The word “art” in this context is used quite liberally.

Thought I’d give you a heads up that I have two new drawings over on the Illustration page.  Check ‘em out!  Or don’t.

This speech was given 50 years ago on Sept 12th 1962.  I’ll be honest, I’ve never watched the whole thing until today.  It’s still incredibly powerful and poignant.  The way he speaks about the national effort in space is hard to believe.  There’s a surreal point where he actually BRAGS about tripling NASA’s budget which is followed by an applause break.  What a change we’ve had in 50 years.

“However, I think we’re going to do it.  And I think we must pay what needs to be paid.  I don’t think we ought to waste any money, but I think we ought to do the job…and it will be done by the end of this decade!”  How could they fail with talk like that?!
