Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| Who IS Glitter Girl?
November 11, 2014
Little did anyone suspect that Dr. Juggs, funky veterinarian, is actually
Glitter Girl! Certainly not her jive-talking, hip to what's going
down on the street, technician Ethan. But now she must face her biggest
challenge in the black and white form of her greatest foe, Doctor
Drab, a fiend dedicated to eliminating all that shines from this world.
Together with his desaturizer ray, he hopes to mute all colors in the
world, starting with Dr. Juggs' youngest patient, a golden lab puppy who is
barely a dalmation. Will Glitter Girl's sparkle power prove to be
enough to stop the diabolical Doctor Drab before he drains the Cosmic
Rainbow that is the source of her superpowers? Find out in the next
What can I say...other than Diane inspired
this burst of retro, '70s vintage madness. Really, if I try to explain it,
it will only make less sense. Nevertheless, technically, I did most of
the work in Illustrator, but had to pull out Photoshop to sketch some of
the characters before inking them. I used Illustrators "Live Paint" to do
some of the flood filling, and since I was going for an "old school" look,
I think it worked.
I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random
sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes
just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly
scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also
am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated
it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of
people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title
provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind
if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search
engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.
Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox
properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't.
I don't care.
