A TCC just in time for 2012!

(Just found out the hard way the "return" key DOES NOT function the same way as the "tab" key...)

Barely got a TCC (Tetsuko Cosplay Calendar) finished in time for January 2012! See Tetsuko dressed as a legendary video game babe...

Has it been that long??

Wow, I didn't realize it'd been that long since I updated this site! I forgot to post the November TCCs (Tetsuko Cosplay Calendar) (1920 x 1080, 1600 x 1200), and the TCCs for December are up now as well 1920 x 1080, 1600 x 1200).

And now... (drum roll) the first 5 panels of Page 42 of Tetsuko #2, hot off the press! (Or monitor, as the case may be!)

I'll try to be much more timely with my updates next year.

"Lost" Satin Steele art found!

I'd forgotten I'd drawn this pic! I found it while going through an old drawing pad, and figured I'd post it for those who'd enjoy seeing it.

TCCs for October 2011

I wasn't late getting these done... just late posting them here to the main site!

But here are two Tetsuko Cosplay Calendars (TCCs) for October '11, two sizes for each.

October is associated with two major events: Hallowe'en and Oktoberfest. So there's a TCC for each event!

First up: Tetsuko cosplays Sally the rag doll from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas:

Two new Tetsuko pages!!

Finally, the saga of Tetsuko continues. And we're just a few pages from the end! Which will be a relief for me; this story has taken entirely too long to tell (mainly due to my own laziness). And I can't wait to get started on the next one; in fact, there have been several times I've thought about drawing the first few pages before finishing the first story. But there are also Satin Steele and Dyna fans out there who'd like for me to continue the adventures of those characters as well. I need more hours in the day!

Tetsuko Cosplay Calendars for September!

It almost slipped my mind to post these, but if I hurry I can get this posted before the first day of September is over...
September inadvertently turned into "Disney heroines" month, with Tet-chan dressing as two of the more obscure females in the Disney canon.
(My apologies to those viewing this site from an iPhone or iPad. Due to changes in it's "share" functions, deviantART no longer provides the "LiveJournal" method for embedding its thumbnails in HTML, forcing me to go back to Flash-powered embeds.)

New Tetsuko product!

The feedback I'm getting from fans about the Tetsuko T-shirt I'm now selling through CafePress seems to indicate a marked reluctance on the part of some to wear the shirt in public. Perfectly understandable; even I'd think twice about it.

Which is why I've decided to add a second product to "Tetsuko's Swag" already: a mousepad!

You can buy it here!

Cosplay Calendars for July

I actually finished and posted them last night, but only got around to publicizing them today.

Also: my buddy Joel in LA just got an iPhone... which makes me realize that he can't view the deviantART posts I've been making here because the previews require Flash (which isn't supported on iPhone) for display. So for him, and for everyone who might be looking at this site on a mobile device, I'm going back to good ol' HTML to post new art at my deviantART site.

Anyway, here are the Tetsuko Cosplay Calendars for July 2011: two different designs, each available in two sizes (1920 x 1080 "widescreen" 16:9 and 1600 x 1200 "standard" 4:3) Tetsuko dresses as the two "patriotic heroines" from the Tick TV shows.

As "American Maid" from the animated The Tick series:

New stuff at deviantART!

I took a Tetsuko drawing from several years ago, and added a proper background to it

Tetsuko #2: the saga continues

Page 38 is up!

The main story for the first two issues is done, for all practical purposes. This page starts a sort of "epilogue" that explores Tetsuko's invulnerability (and a bit of fan service for those who like that sort of thing... like, well, like me.)

...and another TCC for March!

It's Tetsuko as Star Trek's Yeoman Janice Rand again, this time as she might have appeared in the second season episode "Mirror, Mirror". I just know that if Rand's character had continued into the second season, she'd be the "Captain's Woman"!

Oh, and if you don't remember what Tetsuko looked like as Rand the first time, here it is again:

New Tetsuko Cosplay Calendar - March 2011

First, a version for those with 16:9 widescreen monitors...

TCC March 2011 - A 16:9 by *dcmatthews on deviantART

...and a standard (4:3) version!

TCC March 2011 - B 4:3 by *dcmatthews on deviantART

And that's not all! I've already started a second TCC for March. This will also be a Star Trek themed desktop, but you'll never guess who it'll feature!

New drawings at deviantART for February

I've got two new Tetsuko Cosplay Calendars (TCCs) for February, each in standard (4:3, 1600 x 1200 pixels) ratio and (for those with widescreen monitors) 16:9 (1920 x 1080).

First up, Tetsuko dons the costume of DC Comics' Star Sapphire:

Then, a turn as the Ship's Counselor from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deanna Troi. But what's this? Was Sonya also asked to cosplay the comely beauty from Betazed?
