Sketch Comics hit the Spot!

I just finished up my latest SKETCH COMIC late last night. It's even better than a glass of warm milk, especially since I'm lactose intolerant! It's fun working on a project that's actually NOT designed for reproduction... You can focus on the MOMENT of art much more, since the exact piece you're working on will be what your audience will experience. It's like the difference between looking at a painting and a photograph of a painting, it's very different!

This is THE SMILING KING, which I'm especially happy with. The story is tight and I think the piece holds together really nicely...

Man, I dig activating my creative art endorphins... Eye of the Tiger and gettin' the PUMP on, Baby!

Latest Sketch Comic!

Here's pages 10 and 3 And 8 and 5 of my latest Sketch Comic I've been working on. I like doing these "done in one take" comic projects. For this particular one I grabbed like 4 sheets of heavy (legal size) 8.5 by 14 inch paper and started inking with some cheap black ink from the bookstore. I'm not doing any pencil roughs, which keeps the brush stroke pretty bold. After the pages are done, I'll go and paint the cover right on the book in acrylic. This is a great exercise, forcing you to compose and be adaptable with the execution of your strokes. It also ends up as a nice piece of original art!
