Drink and Draw

I made this one page comic for the Bureau of Drawers Vol D, but we didn’t get enough submissions and the guy putting it together didn’t think half of the submissions (2/4) were good enough to publish. Since he was vague and I know the other artists in the group are awesome, I’m assuming mine fell into the bad group. Sad panda day. -[._.]-

Playing with iPad Sketchbook Pro

I just pulled out Sketchbook Pro on my iPad and started doodling with a stylus. My current strategy is to just keep layering and reducing opacity on each previous layer as I go. I haven’t gotten into playing much with the brushes or colors so it’s all pretty simple.

Daily Drawing: Manga Boy (3/4 and Up Views)

Boy, weekends are killer. I’m trying to ramp up my training a bit more and dive into other things besides the Chris Hart Manga book. I’ve got a ton of books to get through but I also want to get cozy with drawing in Illustrator CS5–so I’m going through everything I can find on that. Plus, since I have a Graphic Novel story in progress, I’ve been trying to spend some time reformatting what I have currently in novel format into Antony Johnston’s standard comic book script format using Scrivener (awesome app)–and, of course, finishing the complete draft of the whole damn story. Ah, good times. It actually is really fun to start thinking about the story in terms of comic panels–it brings a whole new feel to it, more cinematic.

Well, anyway, with all that going on I probably won’t be posting a drawing every day but eventually, you should see some sketches relating to my graphic novel, which I won’t name publicly just yet.
