I abnegate the old site

May 31st, 2009 by

So, how do you like this little redesign? I enjoy it, although it feels a little claustrophobic compared to the old one.

Which I loved.


Since I spent so much time on this damn thing, due to ridiculous little things going wrong, and I just realized I found out some more stuff I forgot, I didn’t get much of a comic drawn for tomorrow. It was going to be another Thesaurus entry and an Adventure in Retail comic, but I just didn’t get a chance.

To tide you over, here is a sketchy version of the Thesaurus entry. I drew up the sketch in Manga Studio, then turned the page and the Cintiq sideways and used it as a lightbox to get the sketch onto the sheet of Bristol. Betcha didn’t think of that! Just scaled the workspace in Manga Studio till it matched the paper on top of the Cintiq.

Got this finished just in time for bed. Hope you enjoy this installment. Danny has written what I feel to be a great comic.

Sketch – Land Fish

The saddest fish, that’s really a whale! He can talk, he can kinda walk.


AIR#56 progress

So I’m being super slow at this and I have tons of other things I should be working on. However, I wanted to give you something to look at. So here’s the work in progress that is the next Adventures in Retail comic!

Some hammering

May 16th, 2009 by

Here’s some hammering. Haven’t done the arms part yet. Animators: how does it look. Might get rid of a couple frames at the top, after the upswing. Just one or two to speed it up. Almost too slow…

I haven’t done this in forever and I need your input.

Here is an updated version, but I’m putting it behind a cut if I can figure that out… (more…)

Some Logo Design

May 10th, 2009 by

I need to post something about a project that recently went up for sale in the iTunes App Store, but until I get my stuff together and make little ads for it so you can go and buy it, here is a logo I designed for another random comic series. It’s called Better Idea Comics. These are comics that sound like a Better Idea when you’ve been drinking. Then you make them when you sober up and find out something has gone wrong. There’s a color version and a black & white version. The color one has a bit of a gross scheme, as sometimes gross things happen when you drink too much.

This comic will go up in a couple of hours, so I’m scheduling this ahead of time as well. Enjoy it. I’m not making fun of Mr. Asimov in it. Just the use of him by the Star Trek folks, as it may have gone down.

Asimov the thinker

Asimov’s Chops

Here are a few sketches of Isaac Asimov for a comic I am working on. Just needed to get something that would shout “Asimov” to the reader. Mainly, those enormous chops. Wolverine has nothing on Asimov.

Don’t look at this post

You can’t say I didn’t warn you. This may well be number 1 on the list of Most Offensive Things I Done: the comic I just put up over at ChronicMalpractice. Enjoy this sketch of it, only two-thirds done. In case you can’t see the note I put on there, the face of the long-haired girl in panel two cracks me up every time.
