New Markers and Gestures

Okay, lots to catch up on, not much time. (Read this post as if you were out of breath and typing at 600 wpm.) I've been doing quick (1-2 minute) gesture studies with Faber-Castell markers and some felt pens. I try to get the feel of what the person's doing, without thinking too much about making things look pretty. I'm also getting over the awkwardness of drawing people in public places. Oh, and I'm doing some anatomy study. Putting in a lot of extra hours drawing. Getting better. I hope. Happy Halloween. Whew!

The Zoo!

I've been going to the Hogle Zoo recently and sketching. FYI, the cats are always napping around 4 p.m. MDT.

Mouse and Man

Got a new sketchbook a few weeks ago. I've mostly been putting life drawings in it, but here's a quick story doodle. I started out drawing the frames and tried to create a story arc in the space the page provided.

Of Prose and Poes

My talented friend Kristin Royer had this great idea for a series of comics about Edgar Allan Poe. No one knows how Poe died, but Kristin's clever script combines history, rumor, and wit to take a stab at the question. And just in time for the 250th anniversary of Poe's death!

Kristin asked me to draw this one. See all the comics so far at

Still Alive

For those of you wondering, I am still alive. Better yet, I'm still drawing! More than ever, actually. And I have lots of projects cooking, which is why I haven't written. Fortunately, my blogging sabbatical (or if you like, bloggabbatical) is over. Stay tuned for some fun art.
