Someone told me the other night that they enjoy seeing the rough pencil work more than the actual finished product. Normally I don’t post my roughs, but I figured if someone out there thinks they’re kinda cool, hey why not? Enjoy!
For those who may not know, every October artists from all over the world take on the Inktober challenge by doing one ink drawing a day for an entire month. (For me it’s extra challenging because I usually never take my art past the pencil stage!) I’m hoping this will push me to try new things and build confidence in inking my own artwork… we’ll see how it goes! Here’s the first 3 days…
Stay tuned for more!
Derby City Comic Con is this weekend! I’ll be there on Saturday with the Louisville Cartoonist Society, rollin’ out our newest anthology “Derby City Stories!” I’ll also have copies of my 2014 sketchbook “STUFF & THANGS,” a brand new short story “Love Potion # None,” my children’s comic “Princess Allie and Her Royal Guards,” and a few sketch cards for sale! Stop by and join the fun! Sketch cards available: Dr. Who #11, Alice & Cheshire, and Wonder Woman!
With the new movie coming out this summer I thought it would be fun to re-design the old TMNT gang in my own way… first there’s “Hipster Michelangelo” complete with fedora, scarf, and can of PBR! Then there’s Leonardo (who’s still kind of a douchebag.) Then Raphael, who I tried to make even more of a brawler. And finally, my personal favorite, Donatello. Didn’t make him as big or as muscular as the rest, because he doesn’t need to be. His brain is his weapon!
