Sketch Card of the day- Hawkman!

Hawkman Sketch Card by Taylor Lymbery
This week will be a Hawkman kind of week. To start off this week, I have an older sketch card of the winged hero. Hawkman is a DC superhero who was created by Gardener Fox (writer) and Dennis Neville (artist). Several incarnations of Hawkman have appeared in DC Comics, all of them characterized by the use of archaic weaponry and by large, artificial wings, attached to a harness made from the special Nth metal that allows flight. Most incarnations of Hawkman work closely with a partner/romantic interest named Hawkgirl or Hawkwoman. When I was a kid, my best friend Stephan gave me his Super Powers Hawkman action figure. My Hawkman didn't have wings, but that did not keep me from flying him around. But anything about this character outside of me having an action figure of Hawkman was completely unknown to me as a kid. In all honestly, I should read more comics with Hawkman in them. There is one story I am looking forward to getting my hands on where Hawkman and Adam Strange, one of my favorite characters, team up to end a war between the Rann's and Thanagar's inhabitants. I've heard that it is just ok, but it has such a heavy hand of science fiction that I can't pass it up. I hope it doesn't disappoint. You can also see this sketch card here in my devianart gallery. 

All throughout the month of Movember, I'll be growing a mustache to raise awareness of prostate cancer and I'll be taking donations for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Do you want to donate?! Head on over to my Movember page to see photos of me struggling to make a blonde mustache show and to donate! 

Just to let you know all know, I am taking commissions. If you would like to commission me for original artwork, head over to the commissions tab in store to see how. 

The long awaited issue 4 is now up for order. It's a great looking comic book! Head on over to the Bug Man site and see what I'm talking about!

If you have not heard about the Podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff", then it's time I let you know! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) Seems simple enough. We pick out a toy line to discuss in each show. We share our childhood memories, our favorite five, and talk about the one toy in the line that got away. Jeff talks about how he cherished his toys and I talk about how they ended up in the garden! The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! The shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
