My typewriter likes to add extra y’s/s’ to things.
I just recently tied up the graphic novel I’ve been working on for the past couple of months. I’d been itching to draw anything unrelated to it, and in some sort of escape I drew this.
As usual I’ve abandoned this blog after moving into a new house & getting most of that stuff squared away.
Anyway, peeking around the internet today I saw that you can get some of my work on a clock @ Society6. Super weird, but interesting.
I’m in the final stretch of this graphic novel, and will be presenting a lot of new stuff over the coming weeks/months
Here’s the personal commission I had mentioned & I can finally say it’s finished. 20+ hours of work, most of which was inking. Between this and working on the Split Lip comic my wrists have hated me.
This is most intense linework I’ve ever done & making the coloring portion of this actually enjoyable. This whole weather change thing has got to me, and my mindset is correctly focused on what I want.
Finished the lines this morning after trying to push through last night, but my eyes were blurring and it became difficult to see what I was doing. Probably somewhere around 15-20hrs of ink work. It’s been a long time since I’ve really felt like showing the line work alone. Full treatment will be done later tonight. Right now I’m going to rest my hand, & read a book.
Serious amount of ink on this one. About 1/4 o the way through on this here, but excited to see it finished.
Figured I’d post this up, hoping to have this done by today or tomorrow.
I’ve been keeping things relatively low-key on this end, but actually have concrete things to talk about, so here we go.
Aaron Cahill (aka NGHBRS), Bene Rohlmann, Douglas Hale, Eric Petersen, Hiroshi Yoshida, Jacques Maes, Jamie Gee, Lala Gallardo, Lorin Brown, Martín Orza, Matthew Goik, Maude Cournoyer, Neil Leverett (aka Lev Man), Norman Duenas, Tom Kitchen, and Tracey Slater.
Also the illustration exhibit @ Forumartspace opens this Friday, Oct 18th & closes Nov 15th.
I had a chance when dropping off my work to see what else will be shown there & it all looks great. It should turn out to be a nice evening & hopefully a good experience for everyone involved. Personally these type of events are a bit odd for me. People asking questions about work I never really considered to have answers, but it’s a great spot run by people who are doing something solid in the city.
Sam from the horror anthology comic Split Lip has got a hold of me & we’ve just kicked off work on the most recent release.
I like what Sam’s got going over there at Split Lip, absolutely up my alley. Lots of refreshing ink work, and more than a typical creature of the week story. Sam has a good eye when selecting artists for each story, & I’m excited he’s asked me to be a part of two things I’ve grown up on. Horror & comics is damn near to peanut butter & chocolate.
I’ve got a commission I’ll be able to show real soon too, & it’s something I’ve always had in my mind. Wishing to draw for years & it’s finally coming to fruition.
Dreams/film/life/internet. Almost one in the same.
