Something to tide ya'll over with

You'll get all your goddamn sketches next week. I'm up to owing the the Blog-Gods about four a day by then. I'll get to see Vector so it's a win-win.

Vacation Post

Hey, here are a few more pieces of artwork to to tide you over until I return from summer vacation. That's correct, I'm taking the week off from my hum-drum routine (nope, I don't have a full time job) , packing it all up and taking my family to the goddamn beach. I'll be away from an internet connection, so this will be the last post for a little while. (which is nothing new, really) I'll be drawing as hard as I can in between surfing and jamming to Jimmy Buffet, so you can all expect plenty of drawings and a killer sun tan upon my return.

One new rule I'll try to hold myself to will be that any figure draw without clothing or an identity will not count as a sketch in my "sketch a day challenge"

The Will by The Will

Greetings scum, it's your friendly neighborhood doomsayer with one finished drawings and two pencil sketches for you to judge. I didn't really consider how I would feel about publishing rough drawings until right now. This process is like standing naked in front of mean girls and letting them circle all you flaws with a sharpie marker. I hate most of my finish art enough as it is these days. So heres to hoping that this'll become the catalyst for my next big artist brake through. (Roaring sound of resolve and purpose!!!)

This is Wonder Woman, above. Wonder Woman is really one of the best new books that DC is publishing at this point. I know it feels weird to read a comic about a dumb girl who doesn't have crazy ripped muscles and explosions and stuff but it's worth the read. I promise.

This is The Will and Lying Cat from the Image book Saga.

Next time I'll try to draw some folks who aren't in the funny books so I may have to leave the house. Until then...

Keep lying, stealing and listening to heavy metal!

Daily Sketch Challenge

My friend Seth is attempting to post a sketch a day to his blog. I'll double check with him soon to see if that's still happening or if I just imaged it. (I'll also post a link to his blog next time!) It seemed like a really cool challenge for an artist to take on but like a lot of great ideas I knew I wasn't going to take part in it. After some internal debate I've reconsidered. I'm not going to post a new Blog entry everyday so settle the hell down. I'm going to try to have a few sketches up every week and hope they add up to 5/7ish drawings, representing the days of the week. Dig?

The drawing above will not count of course because it's a finished drawing. I'm still going to posted completed artwork so you're getting a bonus!

The drawing below is the first sketch of this little project. I just drew it, it's super fresh. This is the new Swamp Thing from the DC Comics relaunch. I just read the last issue and I enjoy it. It makes my friend Scott so mad he spits when he talks so that's another bonus.
