My Sis's 50th B-day comic book gift by tombancroft My Sis's 50th B-day comic book gift by tombancroft
My bro, Tony Bancroft, and I wrote and drew a 4 page comic book story about our life growing up with her.  She was a moody teen (she's nothing like that now) so we always joked how Tony and I were her Diet Pepsi slaves.  This gag plays that up but with a little revenge.  We presented the original artwork to her at her 50th birthday last month and she loved it!  (She didn't kill us, so she HAS changed!)  Tony drew the first two pages and I drew the second two!  Tony had done a rough layout for all four pages, so we had some co-hesiveness to the story.  I did the final character designs.  It takes place in the late 70s, thus the hair styles.  (Oh, and I made it a Diet COKE, not Pepsi on my page 3!  Ooops!)  

Hand inked with simple tones were done in Photoshop

The Coke/Pepsi switch is one thing, but there is also the change to the living room set. It's almost as if they are in an entirely different room. I could see you and your brother collaborating, but maybe you would need a third party to work on continuity. So, nitpicking aside, I love it.

I'm amazed you two knew the recipe for Diet Pepsi at just 10 year old. :lol:

Seriously funny stuff and a really cute birthday gift. Your sis is lucky to have such talented and loving (if not a bit spiteful) brothers.

Wow triplets thats so cool. So do you have a favorite triplet or are you guys all really close. I know me and my twin are always together. We hate being seperated. :)

bigblackrock Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
We hate being seprated too, and considering one of my brothers are on DA I dont think I can answer that question, but I can say I have a favorite sis, I have a sis that was born 4yrs ahead of me, two brothers born same time as me, and another brother born 18 months after me. We are close but when ever the lego wars break out we fight each other. I seemingly always win so I am overdo for a kicking. Heck my brother is building an alliance with some friends to take me down. The battles are alawys over "dad tech". You see our dad had a lego army too but then got annoyed with legos after one of us just drove him insane with legos, but his army's tech still remains. Its a lot of fun.

Wow you have alot of siblings. Other than my twin I have 4 other siblings 3 older brothers and an older sister. Lego wars sound fun. You should build an alliance with your other siblings against your brother.  That would be funny :)

Na, John is only good at navel and never explains how his te h works, bob is a comedian, aka just the right kind of idiocy to be unstoppable yet funny (just like red vs blue) and I am fighting bill, kate dosent doo legos, mom dosent either and I already explained dad. Plus all bills aliance members I have already beaten in like two seconds. I do this with my very op tech, I can explain it if you wish.

Tommy boy, I pulled pretty much the same trick on my sister at around that age. Except it was apple juice. I'll let your imagination fill in the blanks on how I pulled that one off.

She was a cruel bitch, Tom. She constantly broke my toys and gave me flak. Bullying me for my autism and taking advantage of it. She needed to be put in her place.

Haha ohh that funny. Its beyond cruel but seems so deserving.

At first I was confused because it looked like a mum and her kids but the names suggested brother and sister.

Either way cool comic. Wish I was a fly on the wall when u guys told her

Hmm, TJ Hooker was from the early 80's, so if you and Tony were this young then....how'd you two get professional work so fast? I could have sworn I saw the name Tony Bancroft on a Star Comic from 1989.

:icontombancroft:
tombancroft Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Yeah, TJ Hooker is a little too late for this.  Maybe Dukes of Hazzard would have been better?  Or Greatest American Hero?  Anyway, not sure what that comic is, but it doesn't sound like Tony's art.  I don't think he did comic stuff that early.  I was the first to do comics and it was in the early/ mid 90s.
