A NEW CHARACTER EVERY SUNDAY!

THE TEN SPOT #6!

Hello, folks, welcome once again to The Ten Spot! We're in midst of a great subject right now wth Tank Girl and just completed another with Ultraman. Please join us on Tank Girl if you haven't!

Tank Girl is also our 60th subject and, as per the rules, an old character goes back into the mix, and that character is none other than DRACULA! Should the Lord of the Vampires come out again it will be the final time we get to draw him on Sketch Lottery. To review, back in the Lottery mix are: Detective Chimp, Lion-O, JC Denton, Gandalf, and now Dracula. 

Here's which artists chose each of the last 10 subjects:

51. Haruko Haruhara: Andy MacDonald
52. Hawkeye: Sal Cipriano
53. Man-At-Arms: Jok
54. Hogun: Christian Fattorusso
55. Tyrone Biggums: Marco DiLeonardo
56. Nexus: Alfred Accettura
57. Black Belt Jones: Michael Mongello
58. Dr. Evil: Christopher Pernice
59. Ultraman: Sal Cipriano
60. Tank Girl: Ant Picone, Chris Brimacombe, Lou Mazzella

Remember, every time you submit something you can add a suggestion to the list. However if it is something already in there we will not ask for another. (see #60!) So choose wisely. ;)

ON THE (TEN) SPOT with ANDY MACDONALD!

For this edition's feature we have an interview with comic book illustrator extraordinare Andy MacDonald! With an exciting visual style that combines inky grit and cartoony aplomb, Andy's lent his considerable talent to every major company in the business. He has also been one of the more anticipated artists who have contributed to Sketch Lottery. So let's get to it... 

1. Who is this Andy MacDonald fellow?  

A comic artist for ZooNYC Mech, Terminator and Superman comics, injured in the line of duty.  Now a police troubleshooter, he's been recruited for a top-secret government mission to ride Streethawk:  An all-terrain attack motorcycle designed to fight urban crime.  Capable of incredible speeds up to 300 miles an hour, and immense firepower.  Only one man, Federal Agent Norman Tuttle, knows Andy's true identity.  
Man. Machine. Streethawk.

2. What made you decide you wanted to be an artist?  

Compulsion.

3. Who are some of your favorite artists?  

Oof.  Too many to list!

4. What're you drawing today?

Pages for the graphic novel adaptation of The Way Of Shadows for Yen Press



5. And what's your work space like? 

Not nearly as interesting as most artists' workspace, I fight between keeping a clean desk and wanting to be surrounded by piles and piles of stimulus (old comics, toys from when I was a kid, magazines, junk like that, etc.)

Here's the studio.  I'm at the far end with comics powerhouses Jared K. Fletcher and Cliff Chiang to my right.

6. What, if anything, do you use as inspiration (music, movies, TV, books, etc.) while creating a piece?  

Mostly music and crappy sci-fi movies.

7Which of your Sketch Lottery contributions do you consider your favorite? 

Either Motoko Kusanagi or Galactus.  I really dig Ghost In The Shell and it's super fun stuff to draw, but the Galactus drawing fleshed out with an unexpected look and that's always fun.

8. Other than yours, which Sketch Lottery entries have you loved?   

Rob G's Nexus, Michael Tyler's Tyrone Biggums, Jerry Ma's Cyborg,  Mister Hope's Krang, and a bunch of others I'm forgetting at the moment.

9. If you could have any artist out there contribute a piece to Sketch Lottery, who would it be?

There's tons of artists that would be great to see contribute.  Giannis Milonogiannis has done some great sketch redesigns of characters that would be fun to see here.

10. Which character are you desperate to see come up in the Lottery?
  
Streethawk
