Squareback part 2.

Another drawing of my old volkswagen squareback. Yes, this is leading to what I think will be a non-fiction comic about a car I once owned. It's already in the works so stay tuned.

nearing the end of a long wet New York Summer

Humph! I'm not sure what to complain about. Normally, at this time of year I would be wallowing in a pool of my own sweat- wondering when the terrible, horrific, unyeilding humidity (I really dislike humidity mixed with heat) would subside and I could just return to my normal cranky self sans-the perspiration. Aside of what was a week high temps, New York had a long wet summer- Which- I have to say is worse- especially when you're from Oregon and they had a spectacularly sunny summer. So- humph!

Oh- we've started put together the next Rabid Rabbit- Tune into this station for more on that later- here's the pencils I did for Issue#5 centerspread- based on a Layout by Paul Hoppe- then inked by S.Y.Choi, and finally colored by Ben X. Trinh-

The Horror!

This was my contribution to Rabid Rabbit #9. The Horror of Rabid Rabbit. Yes, it's a lot of tiny little panels, which I hoped would draw the reader into the story. not sure if worked, but it was good fun to do!

Drawing Squareback

I am not the best when it comes to drawing cars so in a small bit of free time I decided to practice a bit by drawing the second car I owned.

For the birds- a pigeon drawing

I don't usually "ink" my drawing digitally- in fact, other than retouching hand drawn images- this may be my first digitally inked image. It obviously has it's pros and cons- but I don't think it was any faster than had I just done it by hand- that may just be the need to practice- but nothing beats the lovely textures and touches of hand drawing!

sketchbook funtime

I've been knee deep in historical research- whether it be for the Tubman book or the Lighting Roy Sullivan story I've been creating and sometimes that backs up the mind into a creative corner that explodes onto the sketchbook page as this silly gentleman.
