The Cthuttle Bug : Classification of Creatures in the Lands of Nite-Night

It's amazing how a simple line drawing can drag you into a new story. 
I'm glad this one turned out the way I'd envisioned. 
It's forcing me to refine a new aesthetic, and start turning the wheels in a new world. 
Hope you like it!

Enjoy the rest or your week

Linework for the BIG 500

Apologies for the lack of updated work on Monday. To make up for that, I'm giving you a quick view of two rough drawings for this year's BIG 500 show. Each will look different when fully done, but this one's for all the process junkies out there.

Enjoy the rest of your week

The New Comic - Better Pages

With October getting into gear, fall/winter are shaking up to be busy. I'm working on ten new original illustrations for the annual BIG 500 show here in Portland, creating new pages for a comic, and making a more concerted effort at marketing myself toward my dream clients. 

The comic I will have completed and printed by next year's Emerald City Comicon. The BIG 500 illustrations will be complete and hanging in the People's Art Gallery around the middle of December. While the marketing is quarterly and a bit more of a grind than expected. It has been a long time coming, and I hope to see the fruits of my labors soon.

 Client work is "meh"...but I refuse to complain. All good things in time. 

Enjoy your week

Things to Come

Here's a bit of a teaser for the new comic I'm working on. With the return of fall weather, and the mad rush for indoor projects, I'll be posting small updates on a weekly basis. Until I can get a better scan, you'll have to deal with a blurry page still in progress. The blue pencil is fun to work with on the bristol, so far so good.  Enjoy the rest of your week.
