Guys and gals!
I wasn’t totally happy with how the last panel of the latest comic came out, so I made something more dynamic. I’ll be selling this as a print at Magfest this year, which is a convention I outlined in a previous post!
This piece will also serve as the cover art for the next DMM volume, which will be out by early 2013, if all goes according to plan.
More despondency next week!
A few years ago I tried to get a “Pokemon Of The Day” project off the ground. The idea was to draw a pokemon every day and post it to my site.
Well, I had penciled up to Squirtle before the project fizzled out. The good news is a found those old drawings, and it inspired me to do a quick Wartortle sketch last night!
I will start this project up again eventually, but I’ve got a bunch of stuff to finish first

Guys and gals!
I did this sketch at Newbury Comics during Free Comic Book Day last week, and it turned out nice enough that I felt the need to share!

So for the next few weeks the comic updates will be very consistant. I’m going to be posting a new Despondent Mega Man every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This is to ensure that I’ll have enough pages ready for the first book, which will available at MECAF and eventually online.
Some of these updates may be a day early, depending on how productive I am
Despondent Mega Man Volume I will have an extra special two page comic that will be exclusive to the printed version, so I hope you guys consider snagging a copy when they’re ready. No news on prices yet, but I’ll have all that info soon!
Well, I’m back from another successful convention! I will miss Boston, but it’s great to be home. I got a LOT of cool loot, like a shinny new PSP and a copy of Mega Man Powered Up. I’ve already beaten it once, and I’m loving it! The gameplay and animation is awesome, and I love how many characters are available! I also got the Mega Man X remake and Monster Hunter Freedom 2!
In case you guys didn’t know, I like Capcom.
I also visited Kevin Bolk’s booth and got a great commission from him. His dA page, if you didn’t already know, is here [link]
That’s pretty much it! I’m not as into anime as I used to be, but it’s still a great convention!
It’s that time of year again, folks!
Anime Boston is this weekend, from the 6th to the 8th, and I’ll be going on my yearly pilgrimage with my buddy Shawn Hennessey. This will be our fifth year, and I’m staring to get pumped!
If I can be completely honest, I haven’t really been into anime for a few years now, but there’s not much else I like doing more than attending a good convention, next to drawing comics!
Alas, I will not be tabling, just running around buying up merch. Maybe next year, if I can get on the waiting list.
Anyhow, I hope to see some Despondent Mega Man fans there! Say hi if you see me (if you somehow know what I look like!)
HAPPY APRIL 1ST EVERYONE!
To be fair, while this will NEVER happen, I think Pikachu is probably just as sick of his life as Mega Man. Maybe he’ll make a special guest appearance someday!

Mega Man X Maverick seven: Boomer Kuwanger! I always thought it was weird that he was the only human shaped Maverick of the group, but I understand now that he’s some sort of beetle? Whatever. He’s dead now

Celebrating the ladies of Mega Man, we have the lovable Roll playing dress up in a most adorable yet bad ass way! This was a lot of fun to draw and I hope you enjoy it!
