Mickey Fiedler - OctoTrooper

2013.11.03 Jersey Shore Comic Con, Forked River, NJ

Mickey Fiedler, his Dad's Cartoons facebook page states he is a proud father of 2 awesome boys, loves science fiction, comic books and video games. During the day Fiedler teaches 4th grade, and by night he mashes comics...

I took some time looking through his portfolio of images before requesting a sketch. Many of Fiedler's drawings were humorous mixes of animals and fictional characters. These include Electrophant, Breaking Bad Papa Smurf, Symbiote Mickey Mouse, Yoda Stewie, Boba Fett Elephant, Mega Man Green Lantern, Dr. Suess' X-Men and the drawing that really had me was a Cyclops Mike Wazowski from Montsers Inc.

As we discussed the sketch concepts the decision was made to draw an octopus Storm Trooper. When Fiedler was done another of his customers comment that the drawing looked a lot like the Hydra emblem. Neither one of us realized this at the start. In any case, I like the concept of the OctoTrooper...

Fiedler is working on his own comic book to help children with life issues, such as bullying and health...
