This and that


Here are a couple of concept images for a graphic novel my friend and I are working on.  The left image is done with a "brush" brush, and the right image is done in a "pencil" brush. 


Another image for the graphic novel.  This was a blast to draw.



This is an illustration for the school paper that was never used.  I think it's pretty boss, my editor thought otherwise.

Illustration strangeness

My Illustration Friday entry for "craving." I lost control of this composition early on, and just started doing stuff whether it made sense or not. Sometimes, you just gotta get it out of your system, no?

More comics for the university paper



Comic experiments

Some more comics. I don't really like how they're turning out at the moment, but I know if I keep slogging through them I'll start to figure it out. Order of business number one: fix values.

Lime

There is no bitter. There is no tart. There is no piquant.

There is only sour. Deal with it.

Summer plans

Summer is here and that means less illustration work for yours truly. To keep sharp, I'm going to be trying to complete at least three illustrations a week.

Let's start things off with an illustration called, "Thinking of Bikini Bottom." This piece was executed with chalk pastel, then manipulated in Photoshop.
