The text within the comic:

So I’m obviously not that much of an inker… or a colorist either.

But I do love art. I’ve always loved it. I just don’t know how to pinpoint my style.

I’m 26 years old and I still can’t figure out which drawing style is “me.” I’m afraid I’ll come off too much as a mimic of one American or Japanese artist. I’ve never really dedicated too much time to “honing my craft,” but now is as good of a time as any to do so. Join me on this path (yeah, path is the right word) to creative self-discovery, or something like that. -Melissa Molina

My brother is entering his senior year of high school, so it got me thinking how he never looked awkward during hs years (lucky) but I did. Here’s a rough sketch of how much of a weird chunky specimen I was in hs. I used to flatten my hair, wear sweaters a size too big (cause I didn’t know my size) and looked like a weird nerdy version of Selena.

I saw a man with a strange hairdo. I felt compelled to draw it on my laptop. At least I have some coordination with my fingers drawing on the touch pad. I call this one Pepe Le Pew.

I drew this as a Christmas present for a friend. Since he has said present now, I can finally show this off.

Comic-Con 2013: Anniversary Panels You Should Know About (And Go To)

I may be an freelance writer, but every once in awhile I feel compelled to just write a little something on my Tumblr. It’s been awhile since I last updated this, so with Comic-Con being right around the corner, it’s a great time to do just that.

There are a lot of events and panels to take in at Comic-Con. For the newcomers Comic-Con comes off as particularly overwhelming, especially with the panels. The convention is giving fans so many different things to check out all within the span of one day. How will you be able to manage your schedule? Do they think you own a Time-Turner? Silly Muggles. Well, if you’re having difficulty trying to figure out what exactly you should hit up panel-wise that isn’t connected to a big movie that’s coming out within the next year, there’s always the anniversary panels.

For some reason it feels like this year has become even more cramped with a flurry of anniversary panels than before. It’s probably one of those moments where you realize holy crap, all of these amazing things all came out within the same year. If you glance below there’s a list of anniversary panels for every kind of geek out there. For the cartoon lover you’ve got anniversary panels for Pinky and the Brain, Disney cartoons of the early 90s, and even Batman: The Animated Series. There are a number of comics (Sandman, ElfQuest, Strangers in Paradise, Superman) hitting another milestone. Even a couple of newspaper comic strips (Funky Winkerbean) get their moment to shine at this year’s Comic-Con. So go ahead, check out the list and readjust your schedule for the 8th time this week.

Took a writing break and drew a non-doodle for the first time in months. Took me long enough.
