another million years

finally finished this four-pager (it took a million years). some things are ok, some are not, but i'll be drawing something else in a couple of days. i'm thinking i could even serialize it here... we'll see. here's some bits and pieces:





oh, and merry christmas everyone!

in a nuts' hell

it's 5:20 am right now and i'm up painting these:


i fell asleep around nine pm, but got up around one or so. so i paced, watched primer (very good!), read issue #7 of desolation jones (ellis ugh, zezelj does his usual on art), issue #1 of grant morrison's new authority (writing so-so, art serious ugh), leafed through the fourth tpb of gotham central... and here i am, painting little hazelnuts. but it pays the bills. or it will, in four to six months. good news is, if all goes well with this and the stuff i did since september (i.e. if i go and break some fingers and make them pay for the damn stuff), i don't have to work for the next six months, at least. of course, storyboards and stuff is always there, but i'll have the option of saying "no thanks".

this stuff oughta be finished by early monday morning, then i can finally go do some real arty stuff - three pages to ink, got some new brushes yesterday, it'll be a treat.

the chair leg of truth

did this a few days back, it should be safe to post now:



in other news, i now drink coffee (!), which helped tremendously in finishing the pencils for a four-pager that i should ink by friday, hopefully. work work work. but fun, too. got the first tpb of american virgin today, read it, and i'll pick up the second one too when it's out. drawn by becky cloonan, you might remember her from demo. also, got this in the studio book, which is quite fancy, fun, with a lot of nice pictures. basically, nine long 'interviews', but it's mostly people like seth, ivan brunetti, etc. writing about stuff they love, etc.

i'm ashamed-

that i didn't know about this earlier - paul pope's blog. just found it on drawn.ca. here's a flickr set of his stuff, too.

totoro!



new studio member! - her name is totoro. now i'll join the other people in posting hundreds of photos of their cats... nah. i'll just draw her a lot, i guess.

post #100... but not really.




it's more around post #120, since the blog crashed some time ago and i had to copy all posts into one... but it's some kind of an anniversary. i think it's also around two years now.

blue lines

had to do a bunch of these the other day, for school. and it's generally great fun and you learn a lot if you put some brainpower in it. did them in blue pencil so i might ink them sometime. now back to work, so i can hopefully do a page of comics later today.

a couple of panels from a page i pencilled tonight, and inked halfway through. closeup:

it's been great fun drawing tonight, and as usual, it makes me wonder why i don't do it more often. sheer stupidity, i guess.
