Comic Book Art by Bill Forster
Here’s a 3 page story I made about the Mayor of Townsville from the Powerpuff Girls. The goal was to tell a funny little story using a variety of Cartoon Network properties. In case you’re wondering they are The Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo, Dexter’s Laboratory, Ben 10, Samurai Jack and finally Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends.
The letters were laid down by Hde Ponsonby-Jones. The script was written by both me and Jim Sorenson. You can check out Jim’s blog here: http://boltax.blogspot.com/
Here are the inked comic book art pages:
I wanted to tell a funny little two page story of Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, but challenge myself my not using a whole lotta words. Only in the last panel for the punchline would I break the quiet. I thought, following a ball around adds some action and gives me the chance to tell the story through the art.
I think the whole thing was worth it just for that center panel of the ball flying over Edwardo’s head. I’m especially proud of that panel. I want to paint it on a wall or get a tattoo of it. Edwardo’s the best!
Here’s a 2 page My Little Pony comic story that I made. I threw it up on DeviantArt and it received over 40,000 views and tons of favorites. It even made it to the front “What’s Hot” page, which I was rather proud of. Typically I draw on board and then color digitally. The lettering was done by Hde Ponsonby-Jones.

I love drawing Rarity because of all the hair and the attitude. It makes storytelling through the art really fun. The snotty little Diamond Tiara and her bratty friend Silver Spoon make for great facial expressions too.
Here are the individual pages before the letters were laid down.
