Fast Sketch

I like this idea of doing a fast drawing each day that is complete.  So I've decided to start giving it a go. I've actually drawn two today... but one was really drawn at 11:00pm yesterday and the other was drawn at 12:00am today :P

Dead Hand Used Bookstore and Sky Bleu

I've been working hard on writing the entire volume of "Dead Hand Used Bookstore" in preparation for getting it Kickstarted.  Most of the art that I've recently done for it are sort of spoilers, so I'm not showing any of it until the book is out.  Here is an image however that doesn't spoil it at all :D

While I work on that other stories just sort of... fly into my head.  Here is my new comic idea that I'm bouncing around while I'm not working on DHUB or any of my contract projects.  I've also created a lovely little logo to go with it ^_^.

I'm always busy XD

a few monstrous hurtles

I finally got my twitter and deviantArt accounts all linked up to my other sites and my twitter is all decorated with personalized art instead of the provided pictures that were originally on there.  There still some tweaks I want to make, but for now it’s looking good.

I scanned in one of my favorite concept sketches for dead hand used bookstore... that has a monster in it.  I dunno, sometimes monsters are fun to draws.  I splashed in a few colors, had a bit of fun.  I'm still learning a lot about colors, but this was fun :)

A New Art Gallery

I redesigned my online art gallery and updated it with new artwork.  After the theft of my computer I’ve worked at double speed to try and replace what was lost, and I really think I’ve done it.  I do enjoy the new site, It’s a single page gallery, no navigation.  My web design teacher would be proud of me.  A big thanks goes out to my buddy Aaron Miner who programed the site for me (my web design teacher wouldn't be proud that I’ve already forgotten how to code the page I design).  I really had a lot of fun designing the site, and I love how it turned out.

I’m working on a new full sized picture that’s based on the following sketch

It was going to be a companion peace to War Girl (below) but I got some ideas from Marc Gabbana and so I’m working on playing around with it further.  We’ll see where it goes :)

The first blog post

Welcome to my new blog!  I’ve been very busy this week as I found myself with a lot of space to myself and the ability to do whatever I wanted.  I’ve been working hard on illustrating a children’s book (more about that in the future) and I’ve been putting together my online gallery as well as setting up this blog and getting everything linked together.  Here’s a fun sketch that I doodled in my sketch book.

I also got to meet and talk to Marc Gabbaba who visited my school to talk about what he does.  That was really quite awesome, I enjoyed getting to talk to him and also see his amazing artwork up close.  I highly recommend taking a look at his website.
