I am doing an awesome art trade with my good friend Heather Steele, and she asked me to draw her character Damia. She is going to do a portrait of my dog as a video game character, so I pretty much cannot wait to see that!

Emily & Trish

Well I am very excited to show some new work. I just finished a very fun project with a friend of mine, Emily, that I met while volunteering. She commissioned 5 illustrations and a cover for a book she wanted to put together for her girlfriend Trish's birthday. She had some great concepts that coordinated with some poetry that was going to be included, and she gave me creative freedom so it turned out some fun work!

These are the illustrations which were all done with pencil drawings and photoshop.

Drawings from a great Dr. Sketchy's last night! We had 4 inexperienced hot models and they did an amazing job! It was a publishing theme, it was quite fun, and I got some good figure practice out of the deal.

Part 2

Well it took me more like several days to get these up, but here is the rest of the work from the comic project.

Comic Art

So I had been working on a comic project in private for a while, collaborating with a writer and lettering guy. Our working relationship has ended now due to differing goals and time constraints but at least I had a good time, parted on good terms, and walked away with some work for my portfolio.

I cannot divulge any details on the plot or characters, but here is some of the work I did, including a few preliminary character sketches. There are also a few partially finished panels here. I will upload more work from this project over the next few days.

I also posted some new stuff to The Hallway Show.

Alberta Street Fair 2010

I finished this poster for the Alberta Street Fair over the weekend and will start posting them around town tomorrow! I'm glad I got to do this poster, it was a lot of fun. Even though graphic design is not my expertise, I don't think it's too shabby for a last minute project! Plus I got to draw fun stuff like a tall bike.

Dr. Sketchy's

new sketches

Some sketchbook sketches I colored in a little, and a piece I did for the Hallway Show of Lone Wolf & Cub. I'm also working on a poster for the Alberta Street Fair that I can post in the next week or so!

Gillian Anderson

I couldn't pass up a Gillian Anderson illustration for this week's Hallway Show. My time-management lately has been awful, working my way back to being productive! Have some sketchbook stuff lying around waiting for some scan + color fun... within the next week I will have new things to share.

Jamython available for purchase!

So hooray! My artwork is now officially published in a novel Jamython written by Kirsten Laulainen! There are 8 pages of illustrations I did for the book (just fyi I did not do the cover art). I previously posted a preview of the art and some words about my experience working with Kirsten on this project.

I am excited to soon receive my copy of this book and would gladly recommend it based on the excerpts I was able to read as inspiration for the art. "This is not just another vampire is [a] shot to the head. Don't think twice."

You can get your copy through:
Dog Ear Publishing
Barnes and Noble

Photoshop Rework

So I decided to grab an old sketch and use it to practice some Photoshop painting. I normally keep all the pencil line and paint underneath it mostly but for this I'm painting on top of it just to work on a more painterly Photoshop style and experiment with color and brushes/textures.

This piece had been painted in acrylic but I think I kind of killed the fun of the initial sketch. So here's my start for the second attempt!

Stumptown Comics Fest

I had the pleasure of attending the Stumptown Comics Fest (my first con experience! - it was a good one :) !) today and got to see a lot of amazing work and people all in one place! I went to some of the presentations and was able to get some interesting info out of it, as well as the chance to experience a short Dr. Sketchy's session!

These are the drawings that came out of the 45 minutes, and it felt great to do some figure drawing after a long hiatus from it. I will definitely be investing some money in attending these worshops on a monthly basis (only $10 for 2 hours, not bad right?), but unfortunately I won't be able to afford the special session tomorrow night with Paul Pope DJing and the same model Miss Harvest Moon from the drawings below. Next month though...!
