Oh shi....!  If you wondered how Typhoid was able to sneak up on Footloose, wonder no longer.  I used this effect a while back on another pic, and wanted to expand on it.  I'm pretty stoked about the results.

I imagine that stealth tech like this would take a LOT of power in a five-minutes-into-the-future world, which would be why Typhoid doesn't maintain the invisibility all the time.  But she knows how to use it to maximum effect...

The Trouble Shooters - A Modern Adventure Team

Last night, I purchased one of the last sets of the Adventure Team Leader and Dr. Venom from the GI Joe Club store - There were 16 sets when I made my purchase, and none this morning.  I guess a lot of folks had the same idea.

The fact is, I'm a fan of the Adventure Team concept, if not necessarily the execution...I'm more of the mind that an Adventure Team should be like the group of geniuses and men-of-action that followed the great Doc Savage around back in the 20's and 30's.  So, inspired by the great kit-bashes of Monte Williams, I present The Trouble Shooters!

I hope to be able to do another dio in the future with these guys, completely unrelated to GI Joe - something a bit more "my own".  That includes modifying the Trouble Shooters to be more their own, and less obviously an amalgamation of parts.  However, Invictus is my first priority, dio-story wise, so until then, meet the (tentative) team and let me know what you think below.


Wow! Thanks, GeneralsJoes.com!

A big shout out to Justin at GeneralsJoes for getting the word oout about Invictus and pointing so many new visitors to this page.  I've been a big fan of that site for the last couple years, and it was Justin's dios that inspired me in part to take up the Invictus project.

So, for all who have come from Generals Joes, a big welcome.  I hope you like what you read, and stay tuned.  I have a lot more planned for Invictus, and some other projects in the wings that I will be posting about here soon.

Yo Joe!

"Daisy, Daisy,
Give me your answer do!
I'm half crazy,
All for the love of you!
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two."

Now, sing it in Typhoid's voice.

Sorry for the longer than intended delay.  Last weekend, I recorded twelve drum tracks for the new album by one of my bands, The Secret Seven.  Sunday ended up being a wash, and with as busy as my work week is, I didn't have a chance to take any new pictures until yesterday.  However, the next two or three pages are all shot, so I should be on a better schedule for the next month.

What I enjoy about the picture taking process is how it helps me write.  I know generally where Invictus is going, but stingers like that last panel above sometimes only come to me when I have camera and figures in hand.
