Eye Glasses. (Illustration Friday)

Hello again!
Long time no see!
I was taking a stroll through the interwebs and noticed that the new theme on Illustration Friday was "Eye Glasses", this was terrific because I have been meaning to edit an old comic that I did called "Ordinary".
The opening to the comic was me waking up and putting my glasses on...
Ordinary was the first comic I ever worked on, so it had alot of rough edges, it was laid out terribly etc., which is the main reason that I have never posted the full book here.
That and it's about 30 - 40 pages long.
I always had a casual plan to fix it some day, take all my images and the core story and re-structure it into a better looking book, so that's what I have done here.
Ordinary, Page One.
Merry Friday everyone!

"Ask me about:"

As some of you may remember, I made a badge for work a few weeks ago to show customers where my knowledge lies... now, thanks to the recent snow, rain and repeated beatings that this badge has received I have decided that it should retire.
And so.
I have a dilemma, so I make a new version of the old soggy, torn, armless badge, or do I go the extra mile and make an entirely new design?
I opted for the latter.
So far I am considering making it dinosaur themed, but I can't decide on a design as of yet...
To inspire me, I have been doodling T-Rexes...
I am thinking of maybe doing something similar to the end scene in Jurassic Park where the T-Rex saves the day and then does a big dramatic roar while the words "WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH" float down on a banner... except it would be "MODEL MAKER AND ILLUSTRATOR"...
I could also use this as the header to this Blog.
More on that later...
Speaking of later, I have beeing beavering away on my Fiora Action Figure and she now has a fully painted face and torso!
I still haven't faced my old nemesis, the scalpel, to finish carving out the lower details yet...
But I will...
