Green Thursdays - Schlurp Lantern

THAT'S A WRAP! Goodbye, Green Thursdays. I won't miss you. And I mean that in the most affectionate way.

Don't get me wrong. I loved drawing and posting these Green Lantern sketches. I especially loved dreaming up the things I'd do with a Power Ring (I'm gonna let you guess which ones are my own personal fantasies!!!). But I'm sick of these doodles. They've been drawn for nearly five months now and it's time for me to move on.

Thx for following along! If you want more stick figure art from moi, don't worry -- there's my weekly Stick Cats webcomic and I'm always posting random stick figures when the mood strikes me.

Green Thursdays - Wig Lantern

This Green Thursdays is inspired by two different things.

First up is Give Me Back My Wig by Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers. It's a boogie blues song by the masters of funky, sloppy electric blues. Great stuff.

Second up is an experience from my teenage years. Back in the 90s, wig companies used to offer free "wig previews" -- you send them a photo of your face, and they'd use whatever old school image editing program they used back then to make a digital print out of you "trying on" four of the wigs. My friend Josiah sent away for one of those freebies, and I'll tell you what...

He looked damn good in those wigs. My favorite was the curly blonde.

Green Thursdays - Poop Lantern

Green Thursdays gets messy!! I mean, seriously, wouldn't you do the same?

You're in some remote corner of space... there's no baddie to battle and you've really gotta drop one. It's tough pooping in space without the comforts of home (Earth, that is). So you make yourself a little green energy toilet and relax your bowels.

AHHHHHHHHHH. Yes.

Now that's the Green Lantern way. For toilet reviews on this technique, please be patient as I am not quite done yet.

Green Thursdays - Sharp Teeth Lantern

I'm baaaaack! I took a brief hiatus to go to SPACE and give a talk and make a video and then to catch up on Super Haters. And thusly Green Thursdays has returned.

Not much to say this week except that it's the last week of Green Lantern where I feel like I'm dealing with conceptually tame or potentially uninteresting material. But... this sketch makes me think of this: "ROWR! ROWR! Like a Dungeon Dragon!"

Green Thursdays - Parachute Lantern

A completely nonsensical Green Thursdays entry considering Green Lantern flies everywhere.

On the flip, there's only one more boring sketch (next week) and then shit starts to get really weird!!!!!1111111
