Part II of Book II

Finished penciling part two (as the story was written in the classic 3 part structure)! Planning on inking and halftoning this batch of pages before moving on to part 3...which will be starting on page 56. Moving right along!

200 Portraits Project!

The 200 Portraits Project is a personal attempt at creating 200 trading-card sized portraits by the end of the year. It will be an exploration of my own drawing & inking style while an exercise in capturing likenesses that I would normally never draw. I’m hoping the project will not only improve my illustrative capabilities but my productivity through the new year!

So look for portraits on Tumblr as I finish them! (As of today...already on #12) I will be drawing characters from all my favorite books, films and TV shows…along with my own characters. Feel free to suggest any. And wish me luck…

Mini-Comics Dump Truck

This year I'm participating in an Art & Story podcast's Mini Comics Dump Truck. It's a project where all participants are given 6 months to create their own mini-comic. It's also a club where once everyone is done we all swap our comics. 

It's perfect for me because I can work on my own, independent project while knowing others are working towards the same goal, in the same time-frame. Not only is it motivational to see a group's work come to life, but the same group can offer support, feedback and encouragement along the creative process. And it's great to see everyone get really excited about making comics!

So...I've started what will be my MCDT contribution! I have outlined and written the story and have thumb-nailed all my pages.
