Ninja sketchin’

Cooties Jake ninjaMy wife popped in a Jane Austen movie a few nights ago. At 10 minutes in I could feel my testosterone levels depleting to perilous levels. I had to grab a pencil and draw my Cooties character Jake fighting a ninja clan while falling out of a skyscraper window. It still wasn’t enough to let me finish the movie, but here’s a little slice of the unfinished product with a smidgen of digital coloring thrown in.

It’s sort of an homage to my favorite Wolverine/Batman/TMNT stories where the characters visit Japan. Every time, there is a battle scene that ends up with everyone smashing through a window and fighting their way to the pavement below. Because that’s how ninjas roll, yo.

    I have loved your sketches for almost 20 years now. Recently went through my old letters, and found a GIANT stack of ones you did many many many years ago. I should scan them all in and send them to you for your birthday.
