It takes hard training, true dedication and for some, very specific personal grooming habits to be a Street Fighter.
It’s doubtful that anyone would hire me to make slightly animated Street Fighter characters doing mundane, everyday life sorts of things, but making them sure does scratch an itch I’ve got.

    My friends took me out on my 40th birthday because I made them. Here are the photos taken that night.

     
  4. HOLY CATS! This is another important update to the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good! Please read and donate! Thank you!

    Superstar artist Joe Quinones has joined in the fray by offering up the original artwork for his famous Batgirl of Burnside pin-up!

    This piece joins:

    • a page of original Superman comic book art by Stuart Immonen and Josef Rubenstein
    • an all-new sketch of Superman by Stuart (done with Copic markers on Stillman and Birn Zeta series extra heavyweight 270gsm plate finish 8.5” x 11”)
    • a 9”x12” commission by Tom Fowler (no art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest)
    • Rocket Raccoon and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, as rendered by Calamity Jon Morris
    • six copies of the rare variant cover of Code Monkey Save World as prizes in the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good.

    So, how does the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good work?

    All you have to do to qualify for a chance to win is donate $5 or more to one of the charities featured below before 11:59PM on August 18 and then forward your receipt to kevin.church@gmail.com after you’ve donated. You can choose any of these projects, or all of them. I don’t care. If you want to make a note during your donation that it’s for my birthday fundraiser, that would be nice, but it’s not at all necessary.

    Winners will be chosen on the evening of Tuesday, August 19 and announced later in the week (We might be videoing the raffle portion, maybe? I need to talk to some people.)

    Now, for the charities we’re raising money for this year.

    This is a local nonprofit I heartily endorse
    Horizons for Homeless Children is, as their website explains, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of young homeless children and their families by ensuring that they are prepared for school success. They do terrific work in the local area and I’ve donated what I can to them in the past.

    I also like these projects on DonorsChoose.org:
    Check This Out! at Frances J Warren Elementary School in Tuscon, AZ, serving underprivileged kids in a very poor district with a wide variety books to help them discover how great reading can be. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $421 to go.

    Notebooks for Writing at Mosaic Prep Academy in New York City, giving kids access to the very basics that will help them start creating worlds for themselves. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $833 to go.

    More Books For Our Classroom Library in Gautier, MS, offering up literary options that will engage kids and let them learn how great reading can be. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $677 to go.

    Creating a Classroom of Readers and Writers at James Bilhartz Junior Elementary School in Dallas, TX, helping fourth-graders get the basics to help them organize, read and write about library books. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $837 to go.

    Developing a True Multicultural Perspective through Literature in Atlanta, GA, teaching teens about the world at large through works that offer alternative perspectives on our world. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $930 to go.

    Please note: if you are a comics creator who would like to donate a book or original art or a commission or something to this effort, please let me know at kevin.church@gmail.com. I’d love to get some more incentives in place for donations.

     
  5. Hey! This is another important update to the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good! Please read and donate! Thank you!

    Okay, we’ve had three days of me begging for money and you ogling the art and it’s time to kick things up a notch with more swag! Thanks to the largesse of Greg Pak, I have six copies of his acclaimed comic with Jonathan Coulton and Takeshi Miyazawa, Code Monkey Save World up for grabs, all featuring the rare variant red cover!

    These two excellent pieces (which will be raffled off individually) join a page of original Superman comic book art by Stuart Immonen and Josef Rubenstein, an all-new sketch of Superman by Stuart (done with Copic markers on Stillman and Birn Zeta series extra heavyweight 270gsm plate finish 8.5” x 11”) and a 9”x12” commission by Tom Fowler (no art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest) and Rocket Raccoon and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, as rendered by Calamity Jon Morris

    NOTE! A VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE TO THE 2014 KEVIN CHURCH BIRTHDAY FUNDRAISER TO HELP KIDS TO READ GOOD IS INCLUDED IN THIS POST.

    Next Monday is my birthday and, as I’ve done in previous years, I’m doing a fundraiser for classrooms and deserving charities. This year, since I’m turning FORTY on August 18, I’m going to go really big and offer up a piece of my personal comics art collection to one lucky donor, chosen randomly. That’s it up there.

    The rules are simple: if you give $5 or more, you’ll be entered to win a piece of original Stuart Immonen/Josef Rubenstein Superman art or an all-new piece of Superman art by Stuart (Copic markers on Stillman and Birn Zeta series extra heavyweight 270gsm plate finish 8.5” x 11”) or a 9”x12” commission by Tom Fowler (no art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest!)

    Yes, really. These are things that are being given away to three lucky winners. I’ll pay for the shipping (within the US and Canada — international people might have to kick in a few bucks) and everything; you just have to donate.

    So, how does this work?

    A winner will be chosen at noon on Tuesday, August 19th, giving you all through my birthday to give a few bucks to help kids.

See this? It’s been added to Kevin’s sweet birthday deal.
You know that donor fatigue you’re feeling? It’s real, of course it is. But these teachers are asking for your support for their students. They are asking for books and paper.

    The current outstanding total for Kevin’s chosen projects on www.donorschoose.org is $4136. We know that seems like a big number. It is. But we can make is smaller… quickly and easily. Maybe before you go to lunch, consider clicking over and donating five dollars. Donors Choose makes contributing very easy. It will make you feel good.  Promise.
