Here's page 13. I drew and redrew this page 3 times before I settled on this layout. for some reason this page just did not want to be drawn. But It did so there. Some details to add but I'll do that tomorrow.

Sketchbook: new junk

I got a new sketch book and a Pentel refillable brush pen in the mail today so I wanted to play with it. Did this sketch while the kids were taking a bath.

Friday night

Wedding weekend! My son is the ring bearer in a wedding this weekend so we had the rehearsal dinner tonight. Lots of fun and plenty of beer. Got home and everyone fell asleep except me. So I poured some rum in a cup and did some drawing. Did the layout for page 5 and got started on the pencils. Happy and buzzed. Nighty night~

Baltimore Comic Con

Sunday I went up to the Baltimore Comic Convention and sat at Matt Dembicki's table for a couple hours with Evan Keeling. Here's Evan and I at the table:

It was my first time at that con and it was a lot of fun. There seemed to be a pretty good interest around the book and we sold 10 or 11 in the 2 hours I was sat there. Here's a sketch I did for Nan Roberts. (She was asking artists to draw either a cat, an owl or a hippo.)

I bummed Evan's brush pen to do the sketch. Really nice pen. (I believe it was a, "Pocket Brush Pen", by Pentel):

Pencils: Bug Bomb #1 pg1

Got a new script from Kevin and I'm jumping in. Lots of bugs bikes and brawls!! Can't wait to draw some of these pages! Just wish I could draw faster....ah well. Hopefully I will have a bunch of regular updates here over the next few months and more. Also I think I figured out a work around for my scanner so things are looking up! Anyway here is the first cut at page 1 pencils.

Not really inspired tonight so I just played around with a black lagoon monster in watercolor.

Monday, July 12, 2010


Working on some more drawings for a band my cousin works with. Here's an old monster drawing I did that I really liked. I think I will start in this direction and branch out from there.

lady warlord sketch

here's another design for the lady warlords

sketch: Warlords MC

Playing around with colored pencils today doing some more designs for the Warlords Motorcycle Club members. Reminds me of drawings I used to do in school. I've been going back and forth with the idea of giving the female bugs human female characteristics ("boobs" or "no-boobs"). Right now I am leaning toward "boobs", mainly because I think it looks cooler. Also, I think this design for the female roach racer is ok but the leathers are too modern for the gang. I'll be rolling the clock back for her in the next design.

Kitchen Race

The last paper I am trying out is the 500 Series Illustration board for Wet Media. It's nice and big, 15x22. and the drawing came out pretty nice. I put a lot of water on this and it held up great. I doubt I'll use it again because it is large and pretty stiff making it a pain to scan with my pathetic scanner.
