Pearce Family Holiday Drawings: Halloween 2014

Posted in illustration with tags , , , , , , , on October 1, 2014 by Christopher Pearce



Longtime readers of my comic may remember that every Halloween I draw a seasonally themed cartoon of my family for posting on social media.

New readers… that sentence above is a true statement.

You can check out previous years’ Halloween (and Christmas!) doodles here.

Pearce Family Holiday Drawings: Christmas 2013

Posted in illustration with tags , , , , on December 1, 2013 by Christopher Pearce


For the past few years, I’ve been drawing our family’s Christmas cards. It’s been a fun way to contribute to the holiday. Last year’s card was a riff on A Charlie Brown Christmas and we did A Christmas Story in 2011. This year, we went for a somewhat more traditional approach.

I hired Madeleine Witt to color this year’s comic and man, she outdid herself. You should all definitely go over and check out her blog; it’s as awesome as this GIF she made of the drawing!

Pearce Family Holiday Drawings: Halloween 2013

Posted in illustration with tags , , , , , on October 7, 2013 by Christopher Pearce


Every year, as is my tradition, I draw a Halloween themed picture of my family to use as my catch-all picture on social networking sites. This year, I had a go at The Addams Family. I’ve become quite a fan of Charles Addams’ macabre one-panel contributions to The New Yorker but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that my first exposure to the Addams’ clan was the big-budget early 1990’s film staring Raul Julia and Angelica Huston.

I have a second version of this drawing I colored based on the Hanna Barbara cartoon which had a more vibrant palate than the black and white strips. I’ve got that one behind the cut but I much prefer my black and white pass at this sketch.

Summer Journal Comics: Two Rooms

Posted in summer journal comics with tags , , on June 10, 2013 by Christopher Pearce


We acquired a bunk bed for both Elliot and Henry to share a room and attempted to turn the third room into something of a guest space. Of course, within a few weeks, Elliot had claimed the futon in the guest room as his own.

A lot of these comics are more for our family’s collective memories than for public consumption. I tried to include some little snippets of their personalities in each panel but maybe this strip is a little too “inside baseball” for public consumption. I don’t know.

Summer Journal Comics: Free LEGO build

Posted in summer journal comics with tags , , , , on May 30, 2013 by Christopher Pearce


Although I do like LEGO, happening upon The LEGO Store’s monthly free build was pure happenstance. The boys got to build a Star Wars droid of some kind. Elliot’s a bit indifferent to LEGO, but Henry’s really been enjoying the Ninja Turtles set his grandparents got him for Easter.
