TMNT Sketchbook!

TMNTSketchbookCoverGreenIt’s true that I’ve been drawing since I was able to hold a pencil.  But if you were to ask me WHAT I was drawing during those early formative years as an artist, my answer would definitely have to be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Back when I was a Teeny Meenie Ninja Turtle myself, there was nothing that inspired me more to draw than those Heroes In A Half Shell!  And so recently my friend Mark and I decided it would be fun to revisit our childhood a bit, and put together a book of brand new TMNT sketches!  This book will soon be available for purchase at my etsy shop, but for now you can enjoy my contribution to the book right here at Mind Circus Comics 🙂

Bethyl

A little Walking Dead fan fiction piece I’ve been working on. (Yes, of course I ship Bethyl! :)) I tried to imagine if these 2 characters had actually hooked up in the TV series, how they may have changed each other and influenced each other. Massive thank you to my friend and tremendously talented artist Brooke Hernando for lending her mad coloring skillz on this one!

Furiosa!

MADMX201So Mad Max. Saw the movie this week. It was wild! Maybe a little too wild? I dunno. At first I wasn’t sure what to make of it. I never saw the original, but I did like the new one. Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy both have such expressive eyes. Felt inspired to draw something. Hope you like it!
