sketch from last night
Yet another long gap in posts to apologize for… sigh. There is a good reason I promise, I just can’t say much/anything about it at the moment.
So in order to try and keep some regular art posts happening, and also to publicly humiliate myself on a regular basis, Mike Bills ( http://michaelbills.tumblr.com/ ) and myself have started a joint blog where we both take turns coming up with a subject and both post our results. Yes I know he is going to kick my ass every time, but it should still be fun.
We are calling it http://characterscraps.tumblr.com/ and while it’s still very early days (well, day really) I hope you guys will tag along for the ride.
In other art related news, The Future is happening! The Kickstarter ( http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1195904626/louisville-cartoonist-society-the-future ) crossed the $2000 mark a few days ago, and I would like to thank everyone for their support and all those re-blogs.
Sketches from something I can’t say anything about really, but soon… soon. Maybe… Anyway, I will be painting some of this up over the next day or two, mainly for practice, so I will post what I can! Sorry again for the sketch posts :S My blog needs some colour!
A quick bedtime sketch for last night. This was going to be my first contribution over at http://www.sketchfemme.com/ but I was running a little behind. Either way, it’s a neat weekly sketch challenge site, well worth checking out.
The Theme was ‘Jungle Queen’
It’s that time of the week again. This weeks Sketchfemme assignment, Harley Quinn. I knew there was a reason I don’t draw fan art!
A few babearian portraits that will be available at Canzine West Today (Nov. 17) in Vancouver. They’ll be 20$, a mere pittance for original, one-of-a-kind watercolour paintings. Hope to see you there!
If these bad ladies don’t sell at the con, I’ll put them up for grabs on the internet. I also have Battle Kitten T-shirts that will be for sale too.
