This FREE FRIDAY comes to your courtesy of John Jennison and one of my favorite coloring books, “Tentacles.” Made up of the many limbed sea creatures of Jennison’s devising, “Tentacles” will help you reconnect with your inner (somewhat morbid) child. Check out more of Jennison’s work here (and don’t forget to grab a copy of his “adult” comic as well.)

Pranas T. Naujokaitis (pronounced Nigh-O-Kite-Us) has been my friend for something like a decade. We both went to the same high school, are both obsessive comics nerds, I even helped name his cat “Ripley,” after the heroine of “Aliens.” It was apparent to anyone with eyeballs in front of their face that the guy was destined to become a cartoonist of epic proportions, but when Pranas announced that his first major published work was going to be a children’s book titled “The Totally Awesome Epic Quest of the Brave Boy Knight,” it took more than a few people by surprise, myself included.
“Here’s the problem: I have a very kid-friendly style but I don’t do kid-friendly stuff.” he tells me,”In “Inkdick” I draw myself in the shower with my cartoon penis a lot and deal with adult situations. Just don’t tell your kids to go to that site.”
“Anyone who’s seen how you draw noses pretty much knows how you draw a cartoon penis,” I reply.
After a long pause, Pranas sighs, “Yeah.”
