True stories in the limited dating pool of Michigan.  My hilarious roommate Tod of course had to point it out when he came across my profile the day after we had talked about how weird it was that it hadn’t happened already.  In my newly single life I’ve seen just how small the pool is online coming across two exes, several guys from high school and even some of my friends in the comics scene!  It’s mostly hilarious…moslty heh

enjoying doing rough work in my sketchbook again..somewhere along the way when I was in school I kept all my rough work separate, even though I still would write notes in my book to keep them with me.  I’m also really enjoying loosely doodling characters more loosely than fretting over getting the likeness of the actual actor.  Can’t nail it all the time, just stay loosey goosey and draw more!!

The Women of Westeros series hopefully coming soon.  I noticed someone put together a gif set recently that was “real housewives of westeros” my friend Jamie and I had the same idea for a short comic about a year ago and sat on it…oh well.  so these lovely ladies got doodles right away after we thought of all the new mottos.  We used the house words they were born too because they were raised with those.

need to make comics more, need to get better at it…or something like that.  Here’s a Shark Week Woes from March I got lazy about posting.
Whenever I want a good cry I start watching BSG.  I love all the characters and relationships for the most part…but the one that gets me the most if Commander Adama and President Laura Roslin.  there are lost of tears shed in watching this show, but oh man that last episode…just total wracking sobs the entire time.  and i LOVE IT.  I’m such a dork for crying over BSG

Gouache and ink, this book is going to be so heavy when I’m done with it! Playing around with monsters and animals and shapes. 

I had the pleasure of seeing the Grand Budapest recently.  What a beautiful film.  Once again Wes Anderson has made every shot a masterpiece of colour and design.  He’s also really good at casting my favourite noses.  Jason Schwatzman and Adrian Brody take the cake!

and i want more tattoos…so i did really lame rough sketches of what tattoos i want to get

The ltdartgallery Mint Condition #3 show opened this past Friday during Emerald City Comic Con.  It was a shame I couldn’t be out there for this one, there are a lot of really great pieces.  There are pictures form the opening on their facebook and they should be uploaded for sale on their website very shortly.

Re-posting the sketchbook spreads with the rough work because sometimes I’m terrible at taking progress shots.  I also did not get a shot of the framed Black Manta piece.  ah well.

More sketchbook spreads until more comics are ready.  still watching lots of things and drawing.  I tore through both of the Justice League cartoons on netflix, just as good as i remember.  and i love the Hawk Girl Justice Lords outfit design.  Also my first pass at Ron Swanson.  I went to school with a guy who looks staggeringly like Nick Offerman so I’ve kinda drawn him before…definately one of my favorite Ron  gems of a quote.  I said things very similar myself in school.
