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

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…

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.
