I got a little desk mirror. It’s designed so you can see your boss coming and turn off your internet poker. For me it’s so my supervisor can keep tabs on me from the comfort of his bed. https://www.instagram.com/p/CJRXd_Ojo7j/?igshid=1jlzaf904za0s

I’ve had this idea for a comic spinning in my head for a very long time

I’ve had this idea for a comic spinning in my head for a very long time. Not that I need another project right now. I figured I’d post old sketches and concepts here at least.

I want to make a travelogue comic. No real plot, no stakes, just a character giving a tour of these cities built on top of ancient sleeping giants.

I’ve thought a ton about the culture, exports, and attractions of each of these cities. World building is only fun if you get to share it.

Maybe some day

I realized this is a perfect place to dump sketches that will probably NEVER be finished

I realized this is a perfect place to dump sketches that will probably NEVER be finished. Especially the ones that I started to ink and then gave up on. 

1. Early in the 2020 quarantine times I had this brilliant idea that I was going to learn to screen-print. So I made this complicated image hoping that it would be super fun to print. My ambition was greater than my interest. I still have all the screen-printing supplies, so who knows what I’ll do in the future.

2. An unfinished Kingdom Hearts Mickey

3. I just felt like drawing Digimon.

4. The Simpsons’ living room. I had an idea for Inktober (before I learned that the guy behind the hashtag was a plagiarist and all around terrible person). I was going to draw a bunch of fictional places.

5. I’ve been wanting to draw Farscape for a long time. I still haven’t gotten there yet.

6. I found this whole group of people who make retrod midcentury modern doll houses and I thought it’d be fun to draw the rooms they made. I didn’t get far.

7. Woody and Buzz. I like the sketch, but not enough to finish.

8. I’ve been wanting to revisit my fanart for Nightmare Before Christmas.

I don’t have a lot of time for personal work right now, but I’ve been slowly figuring out 3D sculpting in my spare time.

I started with sculpting my book characters for ease of drawing from different angles. I sculpted this group model in an app called Nomad Sculpt, for the iPad. The dream is to have it 3D printed for my desk. Since I was a kids watching every Disney behind the scenes featurette I could get my hands on, I’ve wanted a maquette for my desk.

The second image is a combination of old ideas. Cities built on sleeping giants and a surreal landscape of a spherical sky made of starry tiles. I still have a lot to learn about rendering and lighting, but I’m glad I was able to get this picture out of my head.
