I'm a writer. I read a lot of comics. My friend Jojo is an artist. She doesn't read any comics.

At lunch, she draws super heroes from memory. Her memory is not always very good.

As you look at these drawings, I can not stress enough that Jojo is a professional artist, and a full grown woman. It's important to remember that.

Hello friends, it’s Marly the writer.
Obviously Jojo and I aren’t doing this blog anymore, mostly because I ran out of heroes to ask Jojo to draw, I ran out of energy to bug her to draw them and also we don’t work in the same office anymore. (We are working on a new comic for The Devastator right now, we’ll post that once it’s published!)
In the meantime, I have a new project with another artist (who is actually a writer but a better artist than me!)
Office Fun Comics
It’s also based on working in an office together but instead of being about drawing super heroes at lunch, it’s about how we’ll all be skeletons one day! Enjoy?

Today Jojo draws Tony Stark’s Mark 17 Armor!
Jojo got unexpectedly busy but I’m still going to make her draw all the armors I can think of from Iron Man 3! There’s like, forty of them in the movie. How many will Jojo draw? Probably less than forty! LET’S GO!
The Mark 17 is called Heartbreaker. I couldn’t really tell what it’s specific deal was supposed to be so I told Jojo the name and told her to go nuts. And nuts she did go. She hit the general heart break theme pretty hard, and she made him pink and red, because hearts.
I just want to note that after she drew the Silver Centurion armor, I showed her a picture of what it’s supposed to look like. In fact, every time she’s drawn Iron Man, I have shown her what he’s supposed to look like. 
And yet, there’s all these great mistakes she keeps making. She always gives him eyebrows and a nose. She also likes to give him what I can only assume are metal nipples.
As she was drawing this, she tried to remember what Iron Man’s helmet was supposed to look like, knowing she’d just seen it the day before. When she couldn’t, she actually turned to me and said, “I just saw it yesterday. Why can’t I remember it? What’s wrong with me?”
I don’t know Jojo, but I hope it never gets fixed.

Today Jojo draws Tony Stark’s Mark 33 Armor.
Hey everyone, we’re back! So I saw Iron Man 3 (Jojo did not) and without spoiling anything, there are a lot of Iron Man suits in that movie! Like, so many!
So I thought it’d be fun to tell Jojo the names of the new armor, and what they’re designed for, and see what she comes up with. I’ll have her keep drawing armors until we run out or I get bored. LET’S GO!
The Mark 33 is a fun one because they’re calling it the Silver Centurion, and it’s based on ol’ Shell Head’s 80s armor from the comics. I told Jojo what it was called and that Tony wore it in the 80s. So how’d she do?
Well, she made it silver, that’s easy, and she gave it big 80s shoulder pads, which crazily enough is correct. She told me she was going to give the armor a mullet but when she showed it to me, it had crazy long hair instead.
Her explanation was that when she drew the mullet it wasn’t very noticeable so she kept making the hair longer so people could see it.
That’s the kind of bold choice I’ve come to expect from Jojo, who is, as I constantly feel the need to remind people, a successful professional artist.

Today Jojo draws a special St. Patrick’s Day comic starring Green Lantern!
Hey everyone, it’s me, Marly the writer! I’ve wanted to see Jojo draw this comic for a long time, but had to wait till St. Patrick’s Day… then we couldn’t wait and posted it early! Enjoy!
Jojo knows John Stewart better than Hal Jordan, but Hal seems like the heavier drinker, right? Well, I guess in Jojo’s mind Booster Gold is the heaviest drinker, becuase she drew him as a can of beer.
We’re hoping to post more comics in the future and we really are working on a book which will collect Jojo’s badly remembered heroes as well as have new comics like this one (but you know, new-er).

“JUST PUT THE BATHING SUITS ON BACKWARDS.”

Being a part of the wardrobe department on this show must have been a dream.

i have a theory about why people liked this show. it was probably the light, low white noise in the background, right? it’s pretty relaxing.

My friend jojoponyfarts, possessor of an awesome Tumblr name and not a Star Trek fan, turned this scene into a painting for a Star Trek art show:

She also gets drunk and draws clam vagina monsters, if that’s more your speed. 

HEY GUYS! this is what i ended up painting for the star trek show! where any of you able to check it out?? check out all of the star treks!

hi internet! here’s a hawkeye thing! marly told me to base it off this horrible thing. that was fun! the version i did before this one was based on my previous incarnation of hawkeye, when i showed it to marly he didn’t speak to me for the rest of the day. ENJOY!
also, i get asked a lot if i have my own blog, so here’s a gift for those who’ve asked!
