My name is Pat Loika.

I'm a writer, illustrator and podcaster based out of San Diego, CA. I also dabble in photography and way too many other activities to list.

This is where I do my personal blogging, with random thoughts, nonsense, art and photos.

In a continued effort to bring new readers to the world of comic books, Marvel teamed up with ABC’s The View to promote the next story arc in Thor, God of Thunder. Looks like a new hand will be wielding the mighty Mjolnir, and it’s not the typical male archetype we’ve come to expect from our Asgardian hammer tosser. The new Thor will be a woman. 

“This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before,” said series writer, Jason Aaron. 

Aaron will be joined on the book by Cyclops artist, Russell Dauterman.

Just who will take up the mantle of the God of Thunder? Marvel may wait til San Diego Comic Con next week to drop that bombshell on us. But on The View, a little clue was hinted about her origins, “The story behind her is she created herself. She was saved by Thor and she came down to Earth, followed him, and made herself look like Thor and so now she’s taking over.” 

REALLY looking forward to this!

Hey guys!! 
So I just moved and am currently looking for a job out here in LA. Until that happens, I’ve decided to open up commissions. :D
Most of the info is on the picture, but there are a few other things I wanted to say…
If you commission a traditional piece, you will get the original sent to you! If it’s digital, you’ll get a one-of-a-kind print! Both of these will be saved on my desktop, too. 
I prefer to take payment up front, but if you want a bigger/more expensive piece, we can work a payment plan out. 
I do any fandom or your own original characters! However, I won’t do anything super explicit (think NC-17 rated). 
So, if you guys could please spread this around, I’d really appreciate it!! 
Drop me a message here or on my email (meporch1987@gmail.com) if you’re interested in anything!!

My friend and collaborator flightofmagpie is accepting commissions! All the info you need is written below. She does good stuff!
