If there’s something I adore about comics are the multiverse and parallel realities stories. Seeing what would have happened if they had zigged instead of zagged is always intriguing. Obviously that means that Marvel’s What If is one of my favorites, but that doesn’t mean that DC is left behind.
I’m going to be totally honest: I adore the Pokemon designs. Yes, even the absurd ones like the icecream cone and the keychain. There’s something about their looks that make me wish they existed in real life. Like everyone else, I want a Charizard.
Have you seen Captain Marvel? If not, go. Run to your nearest cinema and watch it because it’s a really fun movie. I enjoyed it from start to finish and while I was already a Carol fan from the comics, I came out waiting to see more of her in the MCU. And well, given that, I skipped one fanart week poll to give her and those other women who have used her names in the Marvel Universe a much deserved homage.
At the risk of sounding a bit too fangirly, I absolutely adore everything that Gail Simone writes. From her Bongo stories to now Domino’s Hotshots, her stories are funny, sad, poignant and more often than not, end up hitting every single one of my buttons as a comic reader. She has made me love characters I used to despise, and hate and fear villains that I thought were harmless.
While I don’t have much time to play videogames, Silent Hill is one of my favorite videogame franchises of all time. It’s creepy, atmospheric, and incredibly well written
When I am not drawing, I am usually writing about Anime (you can find my articles at Honey’s Anime) which means I get to see a lot of series and sometimes, they capture my heart completely. Cells at Work! is one of those series.
If there was a comic I loved to pieces, was Todd Nauck and Peter David’s Young Justice for DC Comics. I never missed an issue, and while Kon-el was my absolute favorite character in the line-up, choosing a second fave was hard (It was a toss up between Lil’Lobo, Secret and Tim, especially when he came up with Mr. Sarcastic). I cried when the book was cancelled for the much grimer Teen Titans.
Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse is an amazing movie. If you haven’t seen it, go, see it now. Seriously, close your browser and go to the movies. It will be worth it.
Star Wars has been with me since I was born. Literally, I was born in 1977, so yeah. Can’t ever forget the anniversary of Star Wars premiere. Thus, I was really happy it won the last fanart poll of the year.
Last year, around this week and inspired by the amazing Axel Medellin’s daily sketches, I made the resolution of doing one color sketch daily both to practice and to have enough art for the year in review. And while I fell short of that particular goal (May was madness and during October I choose to concentrate on Inktober), I still managed most of the days. And so, here’s the year in review, with a bit of everything, as I go into 2019 with more resolutions:
First, obviously, I will keep on doing the daily sketch thing until I manage 365 drawings for you guys. Sure, October will be Inktober, and I hope that 2019 is the year when I manage to get all Mermay done, but still, 1 drawing a day.
Second, well, webcomics: Dream Keeper Robin will continue every Monday, followed by Gradients every Tuesday, Traveling Seers on Wednesdays and a new project that I will be telling you about pretty soon on Thursdays, to finish with the patreon exclusive strips of Gradients every Friday.
And Third, well, you will see. I want to surprise you guys with a new comic and more conventions. So wish me luck, and to all of you, a very happy 2019, and that all the blessings for you and your loved ones!
