Here’s a commission I drew for a co-worker, who requested a drawing of himself as an Irish mobster with a blackthorn cane. If you’d like to commission some art from me, shoot me an email (jackson atsign thesketchy dot com) and let me know what you have in mind.

You are almost certainly familiar with Gordon McAlpin (either through my numerous comics where he makes an appearance or because you came here from my Multiplex guest strip from last Thursday). Well, Gordon recently finished his first semester of grad school, and one of his final projects was to create a game. He chose to create a Multiplex card game, and he got several artists to pitch in and contribute art for some of the “movie” cards. As you can see above, I was one such artist.
The fictional movie that Gordon gave me to illustrate a still from was: “SNOWBOUND: When Henry and his workaholic dad are snowed in at an abandoned old hotel, they have to get through their differences and fend of a wacky pair of burglars.” Or, as Gordon paraphrased it: The Shining meets Home Alone.
You can see some more of the contributions over at Gordon’s Multiplex blog, “Deleted Scenes.” There’s some great stuff over there, including stills from fellow webcartoonists Wes Molebash and Angela Melick, so I encourage you to check it out.
The above is a recently commissioned piece of artwork for Peter Metzger, who asked me to draw him a tray of our finest meats and cheeses. Actually mailing it to him was an adventure in itself; first, I accidentally mailed him an empty envelope, then the next day remembered the commission, but forgot the envelope to mail it in. Third time’s the charm, as they say. Peter is now in possession of his drawing of a tray of our finest meats and cheeses, and all is well.

Happy Friday, everyone! While I persist in my vacationings, Brian Russell of The Underfold has appeared to deconstruct my hot tub comics and ruin my artistic vision forever. Thanks, Brian!
The Underfold is currently in the middle of a storyline, which I recommend catching up on from its beginning if you haven’t already. Also, in case you’re wondering why Brian has tentacle arms: wonder no longer. Mercifully, he has spared me from the tentacle-arm treatment and drawn me with actual hands.
Check it out, it’s a sketch of James playing the guitar! There are more new sketches at the Sketch Comedy Facebook Page.
Because we are so sketchy.
Brian Russell of The Underfold delivers the goods with this guest strip. The Underfold features a self-insert cartoonist and his friend having geeky movie-parody adventures, with periodic breaks to lampoon popular culture. Strips were originally drawn on the underside of the index cards labeling the coffee at Brian’s church, hence the comic’s name. It’s a lot like Sketch Comedy, which as you already know is awesome, so you should give it a visit. One of my favorite segments is the one where Brian and JB visit alternate dimensions in a phone booth.
The two men in the guest comic are Abe and Mr. Pennybags. Is the wizard Howard?
