Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends Sketches

Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends was my favorite super hero cartoon series as a kid.  There were many things I liked about the series including the man three heros.  This was my first real introduction to Spider-Man, Iceman and Firestar, and I thought that they were awesome!  I also loved the crossovers with other Marvel characters, like the X-men.

I did a series of six Copic marker sketch cards, and they are shown below.

My Muppet Babies Sketches


"Muppets Babies will make your dreams come true..."

In the fall of 1984, Jim Henson's Muppet Babies debuted on CBS.  It was must see TV for me for years on Saturday mornings.

I liked the Muppet movies and the old Muppet Show, but this series was the Muppets that I watched on the most consistent basis.  I loved the references to my favorite movies like Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

I did a series of eight Muppet Babies copic marker sketches, that are included in this post.

My Silverhawks Sketches

In the mid-80s, it seemed like there was a over abundance of awesome cartoon series, as well as toys for those shows.  Silverhawks was first broadcast in the fall of 1986, with a total of 65 episodes.  I also thought of this show as a cousin to the Thundercats, another series that I was big fan of as a child.  

Below there are seven of my copic marker sketches of the Silverhawks!

Sketches By Jimmy in GA

It had been years, since I drew more than a couple of times in the course of year; however, I received a couple of packs of Copic Markers, for Christmas.  I have been drawing consistently, since 12/31/16.

Over the last couple of days, I have been working on a series of  sketch cards inspired by The Real Ghostbusters cartoon.

Rogue One: Best Star Wars Movie Ever!

My article listed below was originally posted at RebelsHiddenFortress.com.

Rogue One: A Star Wars story came to theatres across the United States this evening.  Time will tell, but this may be the new gold standard for Star Wars films.

Many well informed fans, probably had some vague notions of what to expect in this journey into a galaxy far far away.  Trailers and TV spots revealed a few well known Star Wars characters were included in the film.  These characters had their moment and were highlights of the film. However, the new rebels attempting to steal the plans had their own story to tell, and it was a good one.

There was drama, tension, and humor, as well as, character development for each member of the Rogue One crew.  After seeing the film in IMAX 3D, I think this is the best Star Wars movie ever!

Rogue One story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta. It was directed by Gary Whitta.  Whitta has also been involved in Star Wars Rebels season three.  Elements from that series are hinted at in Rogue One, which is great for fans of Star Wars animation.

The film is based on the opening crawl of Star Wars: A New Hope.
"It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet."

Another one of my random ABAC videos has been added to YouTube. "The Kagan and Stiles Tennis Hour" is embedded below and is available at https://youtu.be/ySa9bIzMJc.

This is one my favorite videos, from my random ABAC Videos.  Kagan and Stiles were funny guys, which was showcased in this video with sheepy.
