I forget to update here, so here's all the drawings I did for this year's Inktober: One ink drawing a day for 31 days. I explored some places I haven't visited in a while, and learned a whole lot.

(These were all also collected in five tumblr posts with bigger pictures and some outtakes -- 1,2,3,4 and 5)

a chain forged in life

Cover for a Lobster Johnson one-shot drawn by Troy Nixey -- this one stayed pretty close to the original watercolor thumbnail:

I got the go-ahead to overlap the Lobster over the title, so design plays a crucial role on this one. Here's a rough mockup of the final version:

main guy on the cover

Since Zero #14 is out, I can finally show this cover that I've been sitting on for nearly two years (click for a slightly bigger picture) --

I still like it, which is a rare case. Maybe it's my favorite, even. I remember being sick to my stomach of drawing another picture of the main guy standing, and really wanted to find any other way of including him on the cover. Luckily, the plot of the issue provided a direction. I ended up drawing a different issue, so this one was drawn by Marek Oleksicki, who did a really great job.

There were also labels for things, which didn't make it to the final cover, but they help explain some objects -- particularly the circle in the middle.
