Ballpoint Adventures for April 11, 2006: Maybe Barbie is Really Progressive After All?

Ballpoint Adventures for April 11, 2006: Maybe Barbie is Really Progressive After All?
As a white guy I've gotten messed with by non-whites over the years--less so these days but when I was a kid and even in college, people assumed I was easily frightened by "the other". In some cases I was, because I was stupid, but over time, I came to be afraid of very little. Again, it's really about the neighborhood or context of the person that determines how afraid of or cautious around a person I am. These days, a guy in a business suit raises a bigger red flag to me.

Finally got ep 1 of my time-lapse drawing vlog exported. Future eps will NOT be this long!

Draw Every Day #209 7/27/12: Battis Deliciocus

Draw Every Day #209 7/27/12: Battis Deliciocus
This is another victim--er--subject of Space Scientist Steve's. I should have spelled his name "Battis Delishicus" so that people would know how to pronounce it. Ah well.

On a side note, I didn't expect Space Scientist Steve to be such a jerk to adorable alien species, but I drew that rifle on his back for some reason and I couldn't think of another reason for it to be there aside from the obvious. After all, Christopher Columbus had the same attitude when he met the adorable "aliens" of the Americas for the first time.

Caught this #KodakFlower shot after that second to last rain we had in NYC.

After the kind of intense run with the "It's a Cat" series, I wanted to take it easy for a bit. So, I experimented with making a more cartoony character today. Not the short torso and legs. Well, I was going for a shorter-than-I-usually-draw torso and legs. My brain forces proportion on everything. :/

Ballpoint Adventures for April 9, 2006: Barbie Asks Bulah Why White Folks are so Afraid of Her.
It's a mystery to me why people let skin color determine their fear-level. For me it's more about what kind of neighborhood you're in. Any ethnicity can be scary in the right neighborhood--black, latino, and yes, even white folks can turn to violence and crime if they're desperate enough.

In 2006 the idea of a president with an African name was pretty unbelievable even to progressives. How far we've come... seriously. I'm not even being sarcastic!

I wrote this back when Obama was first being talked about as a possible future presidential candidate. I loved how subtextual politicians and reporters became with their racism. This is what I was trying to capture with this storyline.
