Ink warm up + side project #WIP #drawing #illustration #?????
Finally nailed down the drawing for the Steve Zissou relief print. I struggled with some of the details, and I was anxious about the background, but the design eventually came together the way I was hoping it would.
Before you get too excited, I have some ambitious plans for this one. 3 colors (red, yellow, blue) plus black for the ‘master’ block. That’s 4 linoleum blocks all total for the print, which means a lot of cutting, gouging, and test printing. So, it’s gonna take some time. But at least we have a start now.
Occurred to me a couple weeks back that I haven’t done a #ChasTenenbaum print. Figured it would go well with the other Tenenbaum siblings. So that’s in ye olde production pipeline as well. #RoyalTenenbaums #drawing #drawing 4print

First drawing of 2014 for what may be my first relief print of 2014. Still have to do some design stuff for it, but this at least is the raw material.
Drawing for an unclaimed Star Wars commission. :/
Back in grad school I started a comic series called The Ballad of Toby and Sara. It was about a boy, a girl, and an angel wandering around Omaha, Nebraska. I had some grand, long term ambitions with it, but the story eventually got away from me. New ideas and stories emerged (as I had been warned), and I eventually had to let go.
I’m about to move to a new apartment, so I’m going through some old sketchbooks and I stumbled upon this drawing. I liked it, and will probably keep it. It doesn’t really resemble the look of the actual series, but it does resemble where my style was headed.
If I could do it all over again, I would probably set the series in a city of my own creation, that way I could incorporate new experiences and ideas as I moved around the country.
So it goes…
A larger drawing of a sketch I did earlier this year. This one measures 14” x 17.” Tempted to try a woodcut print with this, though I’m more well-versed with linoleum.
When I’m working on a drawing and I just can’t get it right:
(Not sure if anyone is bothered about my stress posts, but I’m finding them helpful. I guess I’m trying to be more open about it in hopes that I can deal with them better, and maybe it will be helpful to other people too.)
I saw this girl when leaving work on Friday in downtown Philadelphia. I tried drawing her on Friday night, but it seemed sort of off to me, so I gave it another try last night.
I have no idea where she was going or why she was wearing the wings. She just seemed cold and in a hurry to get where she needed to be on what would be a chilly night in the city.
Rough drawing for a linocut print that I’ll be doing this summer. Figured the Cid & Francis characters would be a good way to get back into this medium. This will be my first linocut print since…2006? Geez, long time…
The Gnome’s Campfire Tale
Hopefully, you’ll be seeing more of these three in 2012. Just sayin’…
Hodor and Bran Stark
from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series
Cyclops and Phoenix
I have no idea what is going on with the X-Men these days. It seems weird and crazy and scary. Give me the old school team any day.
Also, you can get your very own 6x9 drawing at my Big Cartel store.
Headgear of the Great Galactic Faiths

(not to say these are the only four Great Galactic Faiths, but these are the ones with the most…noticeable headgear.)
