I’ve been spending a lot of time in my sketchbook this week getting ready for some upcoming projects and working out some character designs. Star Trek (The Original Series) has been playing in the background while I work in the evening, hence a few Trek references in the sketches. And, if you’re going to C2E2
When things get busy it’s hard to do personal projects that are more than a quick head sketch. But even that little bit each day adds up the practice points. If you’re keeping points, that is. Incidentally, my instagram account is http://www.instagram.com/funkwich
Continuing the theme of robots, here’s something I managed to sneak in between jobs today. His name is Gerald.
I bought some art supplies this week including new white acrylic ink for highlights. I also used up the last piece of art board on my pad, so I used the back. A felicitous convergence of two events on a week saturated with politics.
No time to write anything substantial or color the sketch today since I’m headed out the door to go to a funeral. Until Tomorrow, here’s Hound. He was always one of my favorites as a kid.
I’m getting closer to launching my Kickstarter campaign to fund the first print-run of my co-creator owned graphic novel, Vex. On Saturday my friend Jason came by the studio where he patiently filmed me stumbling through an hour or so of trying to speak for only two minutes worth of video. Note to self: Next
No matter how bad your post Labor Day return to work blues were, at least you didn’t have to dress like this. Unless you’re a professional First Continental Congress re-enactor… or weirdo.
I’m loading up my book with sketches like these to take with me to NYCC…which is in a month and a half. Yikes! I also just finished up a pretty big project for August so today I’m taking it easy. Or as easy as you can being the father of a 10 month old.
I was listening to bluegrass this morning. That might have something to do with my warm-up sketch.
Today’s warm-up sketch is a cowboy. On a horse. On a cliff. In the desert.
