This is a little cartoon of what I looked like around age 7. I hated shoes and loved snap guns. And my mom dressed me in really frilly clothes. Also, I wanted to grow my hair out so long that it touched the floor.

And this will be a spot illustration! I'm thinking ink and photoshop.

So! Remember the earthquakes in Japan? I know you all do. This summer (we're looking at July or August) a comic anthology entitled "Aftershock" will be digitally released by Topshelf. I am a contributor, so I'd like to take the time to tell you all to buy it! Proceeds go towards relief for the earthquakes, which people still need (it's only been a couple of months).

Here's a page from the 3-page short I submitted:

Ink practice

I needed some ink practice real quick... And then I decided to add color. And try different variations. I must admit, I like the first one best.

So the magical girl, along with a bunch of other lovely artwork, will be going on auction Sunday, April 17th (tentatively). It will be an ebay non-profit auction, with each artist deciding their particular percentage toward relief funds for Japan. The magical girl here will be 100 percent to charity, with free shipping! Once again, I'll update later with more info (link to the auction, etc.) In the meantime, spread the word!

So I've been invited to participate in an auction of artwork to benefit the victims of the recent earthquakes in Japan. The only guideline for the piece was what comes to mind when I think of Japan. Being a long time anime fan, of course that was the first thing that came to mind... And since it's the season for cherry blossoms, I decided on a cherry blossom themed magical girl (and her fat Japanese bobtail familiar). I've been watching vintage anime lately, so the magical girl has some 60s/70s inspiration.

I'll update later with more details about the auction. In the meantime, here are my sketches:

Dr. Sketchy's

Ah, the unexpected hiatus. It is a mysterious and wide-spread beast. I recently moved back to Baltimore, and luckily I have the perfect cure: some Dr. Sketchy's life drawing sketches. And it was one of the few times a male model was available, so I finally got some practice on the male form. The here are some samplings, I believe these are, in order: 10 minutes, 2 minutes, and 5 minutes with the opposite hand.

Ain't No Thang

I've been doing some more development work for Maiz, and I just thought I'd post a couple of things, including some more character design work (a woman, the monkey sidekick, an anteater I'm still meh about, a couple of parrots, and a sloth):
Some minor adjustments to the main character's clothing:
And some sketches of basic tunics:

New and Improved!

Finally finished up with my new website design! I think, anyway... I'm sure I'll go back and add some polish in the upcoming months, but in the meantime, all I can feel right now is relief. And excitement!

It's been a while, but please blame the busyness of the holidays. I assure you, I've been working on things. By the way, here's a sketch that I may or may not paint someday: cranberry girls.
