Pluck the Day: 12-29-2015

Thanks for checking out Pluck the Day! A challenge to myself to post an original drawing, sketch, cartoon, or comic at least 5 days a week.


Well, posting something 5 days a week is not possible right now, but I have been drawing almost every day, even with all the holiday chaos.  Here’s a concept I have been trying out.  The idea – who would go to a Disney Prom together.  Considering Disney has a universe filled of princesses and princes and Marvel superheroes, I wanted to see what it was like to match them up.  My daughter inspired the idea on Christmas day when she was playing with her new Disney Princess Castle and added her superhero toys to the dance party.  Man, I love this kid!

So, I started off with what I think is an obvious choice, Cinderella and Captain America.  I plan to do a more final version when I have more time.  Until then I am wrapping up a short story I wrote and hope to get published sometime next year.  I am finishing with the Beta Reading now and then it is off to the editor.  After that is the heart breaking journey to a million rejection letters, but all I need is just one yes.

About OxenTrot

During the day, I am a mild mannered desk jockey who helps to manage a large IT company.  At night, I am a family man, who is insanely in love with his wife and a proud daddy to an amazing girl.  But in the pre-dawn hours, as most everyone else is still asleep, I am my alter ego.  During that time, I am: OxenTrot. Ox was a call sign bestowed upon me while I was an active duty United States Marine, mainly in tribute to the fact that I was a major gym rat. After 5 years and three tours of duty, I reentered the civilian world.  My call sign was replaced by my actual name but the Ox still lived inside. As I began to adapt to my new life, I also began to take on new adventures, such as starting a family, getting a “big boy” job and taking on endurance sports.
