2009 Year of the Orange

I hope everyone had a super New Years, and that your all healthy and well.

This post is specifically for all you super friends who follow this blog!

I have a question that I want your honest feedback on.

As you may know, I have this blog, Agent Orange, as well as my own personal blog that I run and try my darndest to keep updated on the regular. But I was finding last year that it was really getting difficult for me to keep posting on both of them. My concern is that one of them would eventually become unmanaged and therefor unloved and unused.
I'm thinking of not having two blogs, but combining both into one. (basically agent orange blog would cease to be used, and rawls' blog would become the Hub for all things Orange.

My question to all of you is this - Are you cool with that?
I know there may be others that come to this blog that are not in the 'followers' list, but I just wanted to make sure that I inform you ALL of you Orange lovers, so that you can keep in the loop about our good buddy Orange. If you've linked this blog, or follow it, or google reader it, or whatever... If I am going to switch to just having one blog, I'd invite to you switch over to

Eventually, as time goes by, this blog WILL be ressurected of course and become the main Hub for Orange once again. But until then, I really want to simplify my life and make my focus a little sharper on the important things... like the ART!!
Let me know what you all think, and I'll make my decision by the end of this month. I just wanted to make sure that you, (my good friends and support system) know what's going on.

Thanks again for all your support you guys and gals. I really, REALLY appreaciate it. I wrote a little New Years blurb over on my blog, and it of course includes you all.

Much love

AO sketch dump.
Thanks for the support and comments from everyone. Agent Orange is getting some great feedback and the public is approving! So that's great news.

You'll notice in the sketches a couple of things. One is the MINI versions of the Agents. I want to do little funny comics here and there in this style. I always like it when someone makes fun of their own creations. A good example of this is from Avatar the Last Airbender. They did little shorts in this style. Very funny!!!

Also, for those of you who know who Jeremy Bomb is, you'll notice Orange wearing a couple of JB shirts. Just a sneak peak of where ol' Bomb might be showing up. (For those of you who don't know who Jeremy Bomb is... he's simply a character that I created that people seem to like a lot. You can see more sketches of him over on my blog.)
Have a great week!

So, I decided that these would eventually make good cards to hand out or give away at conventions or book shows. On the back of them I want to have all their details and stats. I always loved getting those super hero cards when I was young, so I could compare their powers and abilities. Anyone ever play Top Trumps? I have the Marvel super hero set. That'll be fun to play with my daughter when she gets a bit older! Oh yea, she's totally gonna be a super hero comic kid!
I'd explain all their individual stories and details on here, but I think I'll let you wait to read about them when the books come out!!!

Sorry if you've seen this sketch already, but I couldn't help but post it... This was one of the first sketches of Orange, and is still one of my favorites so far. I intend on making it into promotional posters for comic cons and such, or even prints to buy. We'll see.

Happy Halloween

Just thought I'd do up a quick seasonal treat for everyone!
I'll probably post this on my blog as well a bit closer to the 31st, but I'll put it here first.
Hope you like it!!! Have a fun and safe Halloween! And someday soon you can have your own Agent Orange costume!!!

Just a really quick weekend sketch.
Still pluggin along trying to work out the publishing/printing kinks. Being new to this book making business I'm trying to find out a lot about what goes into the whole process. What I'm finding out is that it's actually a lot of work!!!

I also wanted to thank everyone for they're kind words and comments. I'm really glad everyone is diggin Agent Orange!
