Girl with a Cat




































This drawing was an early sketch for a character in a comic I'm hoping to draw someday in the not too distant future. I ended up making some drastic changes to the latest sketches so I don't think I'm ruining any potential surprises by posting this.

Girl Bands




































This illustration was featured in the Chromosome XX version of the 4th issue of F / I / M ² / P. It accompanied an article about girl bands of the 60s and three bands were on the must-feature list. They are from top to bottom: The Ronettes, The Supremes and The Shangri Las. The fun part of working of this was drawing from reference but with a thick brush. I ended up abstracting them in a way I normally wouldn't have thought of.

The Marked Cat of Evilness























I Google searched a skull and stuck it on an old sketch of a cat for this one...

Roy Invades the Ring

Ol' Roy here's attacking an area I worked a particularly annoying job once.
For composition's sake, I couldn't work in his snail friend.

Groin-Kick




































This is a poster I illustrated for the launch of the new issue of F / I / M ² / P (details on the poster). The issue's driving theme is Men Vs. Women so I wanted to do something involving aliens and astronauts considering men are from Mars and women are from Venus (obviously). As I started drawing it, I figured the saying alone wasn't enough to base myself on so I added a groin-kick. That's midnight-drawing-logic at it's finest for you.

Monster-Girl























This was a surprisingly fast drawing given the way it was shaded. Getting started, the only idea I had of how it should turn out was that I wanted something small to be saying that line. The rest was all figured out on the spot, but generally it was meant to be reflective of how people tend to define themselves by their (perceived) flaws quite often.

On a technical note, this was one of the first drawings I've done using Photoshop CS6. Some of the brushes that come with the update seem to respond a lot faster than in previous versions so I'd highly recommend a lot of people try it.
