Score at the Dollar Store

I stopped into the Dollar Store for paper for the kids. Of course, the kids wanted toys. I said sure. Why debate if a handful of dollars make them happy.
I browsed the books as they weighed the merits of each toy. I didn’t see anything interesting until I saw this plastic bag of comics.

Robotech reprint for a buck! Score!

It came with a comic I had never heard from, a pamphlet on collecting, and a card. A Graceland collector card. I am not sure what that is all about, but it made me smile.

My kids made their choices; a ball, a ninja knife and some crazy scuptung foam. We are very happy.

#TBT Iron Man and Markers

Iron Man is an old favorite. 
on drawing paper

on plain copy paper
I am using different papers to get the hang of new markers. Markers are not something I am very good with, especially color.All Black Iron Man went wrong with the hands and feet. Color Iron Man went wrong with the colors. I meant to match the colors to the classic Iron Man from issue #69. It didn’t work.
I am going cut down some marker paper and scan All Black Iron Man so I can practice colors. Over, and over, and over again.
I also obtained an old book from The ROM featuring medieval armor, so I can practice those armored hands and feet.
