Jesse Hamm
Over on my sketch blog, I'm taking the plunge: one sketch posted per day for the next year, a la Cory Walker's challenge. (Check out Cory's links to others who are also on board.) I'm two sketches behind so far this year, but better late than never. I won't be posting most of the sketches here on my LiveJournal, since I have to host the work I post here and I'd keep running out of space. However, here's my first official "Sketch-A-Day" image: the X-Men's Dazzler (costume courtesy Silvestri's run).

I wasn't sure whether to give her large breasts or small, so I tried both. Small breasts fit her frame better, and appear less exploitative, but since she's a girlie, insecure rock star, I figured she might have gotten a boob-job to boost her career, or might even have been well-endowed from her early teens, resulting in her superficial self-image. My wife maintains that Dazzler is the busty type, and I'm inclined to agree, but given her thin frame and scant costume, a large bosom almost seems too much. Thoughts?

(The careful reader will also note that I seem to have solved my signature dating problem: by connecting the base of the '1' with the final '0,' I can disconnect it from the letters above without leaving it floating awkwardly in isolation. Unfortunately, this won't work for '11,' so my scientists will have to develop another solution by next year.)

Hamm on "Dazzler"...


...is like Kirby on "Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen."

An uplifting incongruity. (Uplifting to the character.)

WRT the signature, you failed to mention that *both* zeros are attached on the lower right to the preceding numeral, something which I find to be a pleasing symmetry. (Which does have, as you *did* note, an expiration date.)

Re: Hamm on "Dazzler"...


No, wait! Just after I clicked "Post," I saw the opportunity to make some sort of double-entendre connecting "uplifting" to "breasts" perhaps with a brassiere tie-in. Did I say "tie-in." I'm sorry. Please forgive me.

(I am a natural-born straight man. I do it all the time without even thinking. I really need a Gracie to my George, a Costello to my Abbott. Set-up lines pop forth from mind in pure innocence; I swear to God it's true.)
