Weekly Sketch 7/28

Whew! Been busy around here lately...but somehow, I seem to get more done and post more often when there isn't enough time to do so!

Today, some sketches:


Ghost Story

Here's the first page of a comic I did for Wide Awake 666, a horror anthology to be served up by Wide Awake Press just in time for Halloween. It features a hoary host of other fine indie contributors, including J. Chris Campbell, Duane Ballenger, Chris Pitzer, Andy Runton, and Josh Cotter, so you'll definitely want to check it out!

I actively tried to channel Guy Deslisle and Lewis Trondheim with this wordless story, and it ended up being maybe the saddest thing I've ever written. So check back in October to find out what happens next!

And to that end, here's some handy ordering information:
Full Color, 112 pages
5” x 8”, Perfect Bound
$9.95 US funds
ISBN 0-9749266-9-8
From Wide Awake Press and 3 Boys Productions
Diamond Code: AUG06 3555


Fair's Fair

This piece is from a recent Savage Love column, about a girl who surprised her boyfriend by indulging his fantasy of a threesome, then afterward demanding that he in turn indulge her most secret desire...to be with two dudes at the same time while he watched! That's dirty pool.


Sonic Siren

Here's a little "practice run" I did for a commission of Black Canary. I inked it pretty quick, and slapped some color down...I used a JLU maquette for reference, so if she seems pretty "on-model", that's why!





I drew this last week, and was thinking about donating it to the Heroes Con auction, but I couldn't finish it in time. Behold, the Female Fury!

In the comments section, Jay Geldhof wrote: "Now draw her face in profile....I DARE ya! That nose strap! What was Kirby thinkin'? "

Boy, he wasn't kidding!


Happy Birthday, America!

Anyone else out there working today?

The only downside to spending the weekend selling comics at a three-day convention is that the work doesn't go away, it just get pushed to the background, waiting to pounce back upon you at the first available moment. So, rather than cooking out or lounging by some water, I'm catching up on commissions of Lashina and the Golden Age Wonder Woman and writing the script and doing layouts for a comic about the local baseball team for Richmond Magazine. But hell, my wife has to work today anyway, and it's gonna be close to 100 degrees outside, so really, it's no big loss.

About Heroes Con: It was spectacular! I'm waiting on some pics, and I'll post an image-heavy report once I get my hands on 'em!
