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.

been watching all the Bruce Timm super hero cartoons on netflix while i work…so yeah.  I’ve been having movie night with one of my roommates this week so i finally watched Avengers, love that Agent Coulson, just the best…then we watched Big Trouble in little China, an old fav of mine.

i’m also having a lot of fun using all the ink from my brush pen to make my sketchbook nice and heavy.

Sketchbook spreads.  lots of Arrow still and Battling Boy and Aquaman.  All using my Pentel brush pen and Pitt pens for the colour.  Something has snapped in my brain and I only want to draw Super Heroes…this convention season could not come soon enough for me.  I with I had signed up for C2E2, even if it does cost and arm and a leg….
