Well, putting aside all the ugly
business about who created what (jack Kirby and Steve Ditko created at least
half of all those Marvel characters), Stan is still around
and and Simon wanted to do a Stan Lee day.
One thing I can say Stan did for sure is this:
He wrote the first issue of "The Savage She-Hulk!"
I know this because it says so on the cover. And
I'm sure NOBODY else helped plot it or...um...anything.
So I give you, "The Meditating She-Hulk."
Cause I hadn't had my coffee yet when I thought of this.
For better or worse we are all living in the world created by Stan Lee. Yea I KNOW that it was Kirby & co doing all the heavy lifting, but it's Stan who worked it out. It's Stan who became a star. When we're all spending our time Twittering, Facebooking & Blogging we're all doing what Stan did and to the same end.

This is a pencil drawing, photographed with my camera then tweaked with Gimp Portable. I'm still struggling to understand the basic of the Gimp. This is not helped by the fact that I have to do everything with a trackpad (arrgh!)

I spent some time inking over whatever pencils I could find on the Internet some years back ( I should post that stuff someday ). I think I can do a creditable job on just about anyones pencils , the only one I had trouble with was Gene Colan. The guy could draw like nobody else, I was frankly out of my league. It's a humbling and inspiring thing to look at Colan's work. May he rest in peace.
I remember finding his "Tomb of Dracula" at a rummage sale and
only buying the issues because the kid selling them insisted as I
had no interest.
Well, they were great...and creepy...and they had fantastic art.
Later I loved the strange but uneven "Night Force" which
unfortunately was not loved by enough people to stay around
Anyway, Thanks for the memories!
I tried to draw like Gene here...not easy...

Happy Birthday to Becky Cloonan, drawer of pretty men, beautiful women, and scary-ass monsters, and fellow Hypothetical Islander and Drawbridger, who turns, like, 43 today. She knows why I drew Dracula for her, and so might you, depending on your google skills. As an added bonus, I get to complete my holy trinity of monsters I've been drawing the past few days. Bonus!

Anyway, here's a doodle of when I was in high school and went to church and had reveries of bikers crashing through the windows and getting rid of the preacher.
I'm going to hell now. So, good night!

And if I'm going to draw that, of course I'd have to draw Mary Poppins without her umbrella (falling).
This image also reminds me of the video for another good song: Sidewalk Serfer Girl by the Super Furry Animals
