Death Proof IV : Evel Knievel

While it would be complete & utter folly to hold up my Death Proof series as examples of great (or even, having just reread them, marginally acceptable) pieces of writing up on this site – they were most certainly the most fun to do.  By a long shot.

(They also rack up some of the most hits of any posts here – though Jasper’s Robocop piece is still the most popular thing in the site’s history… goddammit)

The next one is a drawing I did for… for some reason, I’m sure… of a roller derby gal.

The next is a piece of SMart (SModcast art) that makes me giggle.

These are defintely wicked old (/kinda sucky) but just like with the sketch of my girlfriend I found yesterday, I’m glad I have these.

Revenge of the Clover!
