Baker’s Log – Published by Main Enterprises

Spy Betsy

I had been drawing for AC Comics for a while when my regular inker, Jeff Austin, helped me branch out. That first step was to draw for Main Enterprises (mostly to salvage some pencil sheets I had drawn for an abruptly cancelled project). Jim Main has helped me keep busy ever since, and he even published the first book for which I was seen cover to cover, the mini-comic SAY CHEESECAKE! Here are some things I’ve had published by Mr. Main. Above is an image that was used on the cover of Jim Main’s PRESENTS No. 4, featuring the “Super Spy” episode of Betsy the Bookwriter. Inks by Jeff Austin, colors by Marc Haines.

Gallery Cover
This was quite a thrill for me, as I had the honor of being profiled in THE GALLERY, a showcase title from Jim Main. Again, inks by Jeff Austin, colors by Marc Haines.
Wet Towel
This was a gag pinup I drew, and Jim Main liked it enough to have Jeff Austin ink it for the cover of his comedy title “SHEESH!”
Telephone Wet
Here’s the original pencil version, by the way, which I drew so I would have something to post on my then brand new Facebook page. I’ve tried to post a new pinup every working day since that time.
Sadie Pinup
Here’s a preview of an upcoming character to be published by Jim Main, Sadie Six-Gun. Inks by Jeff Austin. This strip to be in full COLOR!
Finished art from the very first page of the very first adventure of Betsy the Bookwriter. Talk about a fun strip to draw! Inks by the Jeff Austin.
Here’s a finished and lettered page from Betsy the Bookwriter’s spy story from PRESENTS No. 4. Inks by Jeff Austin.
No, Jeff Austin this time. This drawing for THE GALLERY was printed as is!
