NUMBER 5 - 001

I work on a lot of stuff I can't show, so in an effort to do something that can actually be followed on this blog, I've decided to use my warm-up-drawing-time (20-30 minutes a go)in order do a story in a series of single panel comics.

Maintaining Sanity

In order to stay halfway sane while working on two comic projects (one black & white and one in limited color) I decided to take a half hour or so each day to warm-up. Figure I can always work on improving my digital painting skills, so I'm working on a digital painting sketch here and there as needed.

so here's what I have done so far of my digital sketch... this is about one-tenth of the whole image, more will be revealed as time passes and I work on it.

Visiting Artist: Jon Foster

at SDCC this year I was lucky enough to find Jon Foster (, pull him aside and get the ball rolling for him to do the visiting artist thing at Northern Illinois University this year. I have absolutely no idea how many people that see this are close enough to NIU to make the trip, but Jon will be giving a demo, talk'n about illustration and generally shooting the shit October 23rd in Dekalb (roughly 45 minutes away from Chicago). This is open to the public, so if your interested show up.

The schedule of happenings that I was given is as follows:
10am- digital painting demo (room 307 of the art building)
2pm- portfolio critiques
5pm- Illustration lecture (room 100 of the art building)
Later- group dinner (not exactly sure where they have that planned yet)

if you can make it then I hope to see you there.

did a lil character stuff today...

and had a bit of a realization. When I find new tools to play with (new types of pencils, erasers, pens, ect) I tend to leave some of my old favorites behind. I need to stop doing that and learn to use whatever works... ie: don't fix what ain't broken, or continue to grow but don't forget what got you to this point already.

Anyway, a couple of character sketches I agreed to do for my friend Devin, on a project he's playing with:
