One of the biggest stories in comics and pop culture over the summer was from Marvel Comics showing their efforts in creating diverse characters. Much to a lot of fans dismay,they made Thor a woman and Captain America a black man. Sam Wilson aka The Falcon is now officially Captain America. While working today through my anger at the Ferguson, MO story which is still unfolding…I wondered what Sam would do if he were a real person. So, I did this image to deal with the madness.
Please keep this circulating. Cops are getting more and more brazen, know your rights!
good to know
my brother is a police officer and these are all v true and things he made sure i knew but also remember the police can lie lie lie. the best thing, as mentioned, is to yell “i do not consent” repeatedly and hope someone will hear and act as an eyewitness for you
this is super important and we need to circulate this especially with the upcoming chicago raid ?? we need to do everything we can to protect possible victims of police brutality and hate crimes. it is not okay to break the law that goes for the people being arrested and the people arresting. stay safe.
this is important! signal boost!
spx:Here’s the thing!
CHRIST! SCHWEITZER JUST WHIPPED OUT THE GODDAMN ROSETTA STONE, Y’ALL!
Cleaning out my filing cabinet, I found this handout that I made for my mini-comics class. Hope it’s helpful! Remember, it ain’t only for comics. Self-publish short stories, collections of drawings or sketches, or blank for journals/sketchbooks, etc.

I had the pleasure of creating Cheeks’ Kickstarter video for his original series “Bastion’s 7”. Cheeks has worked for Marvel, DC, been the character artist on the Hellboy cartoon, and worked on the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon. This was the most intense video I have done because of the amount of art I chose to work with and animate in After Effects. One thing Cheeks does is that he handles sequential art like an animator - all panels of his comic book work consist of separate layers. For instance: 1 for character A, 1 for character B, 1 for foreground, 1 for background, 1 for atmosphere, and so on. Ideal format for animation. When I found this out, I knew that I had to animate his work.
Cheeks is an awesome guy! If you go to a con and he’s there, visit him. He’s usually with Ryan Benjamin.
Near the end of the edit, I spent 14 hours editing in one day. It had to be up for San Diego Comic Con and we made it! Cheeks had this video playing on a flat-panel at his booth, so I can proudly say I had a film screen at SDCC!
