I drew this with my 4 year old son a couple weeks ago . He asked me to draw HULK. The only drawing tools he had were two big fat crayons and one pencil that was cinnamon scented, which was odd but pleasing at the same time. If I was 4 I would probably have tasted it. Luckily my son is smarter than I.

Here’s some Invincible stuff.  Can’t wait for Viltrumite WAR?  Meeee tooo.

And here’s a page from Invincible 70. I did the whole issue in exactly 10 days, I had to rush it. Not giving excuses just giving you a fun fact. It was rushed of course because at the time I was working on my last issue of Haunt as well.  Each issue of Haunt was about 2 weeks also so you can imagine how happy I am  to not have two books to worry about anymore. I am so sick of drawing fast so it’s nice to only have Invincible to work on for now. I spent more time on Invincible returns, and issue 71 is a blast so far as well, I’m going at a rate of a page a day. Which isn’t helping our lateness but once I get to some easy pages it should go faster. We’ll get back on time people, don’t you worry.

    If I were 4 & my dad could do that with crayons and a cinnamon-flavoured pencil…
    He’s a lucky kid!

    Anyway, as always, the work more than speaks for itself. Though I must admit, red-faced, to not being up on Invincible (I think I’m about 3 TPs behind) the awesomeness is there, all I need is the time to catch up!
    (also: my wife has read all of ’em up to 11 & loves it too!)

    That’s awesome stuff. You rushing through pages is better than a lot of guys taking their dear sweet time my friend. I’m glad you’re back at a more manageable workload though. I enjoyed Haunt but Invincible is my favorite ongoing by far.

    Also I cannot wait until my son is asking me to draw the Hulk. Cinnamon pencil or no, that would be killer! Right now he just asks me to draw lightning mcqueen which kind of sucks to draw. Hopefully he’ll start asking for Iron Giant or Incredibles soon, a lot more fun to draw for sure!

    don’t knock the cinnamon pencil until you have tasted it

  11. I think you’d sell twice as much original art if it all smelled like cinnamon. Love that hulk sketch.
