Wassup dogs? I seem to be starting a lot more projects than i’m finishing at the moment, probably cos i’m they’re unpaid and i don’t have any deadlines, so i’ll get bored when it gets to the hard bit and move on to something that’s temporarily more exciting. Anyway, the first thing to tell you about is a thing I finished (because I got paid for it), a One Hour Drawing commission from Alan Henderson, who collects drawings of The Shadow, and I was more than happy to supply him with mine. If you want me to do a One Hour Drawing for you, all the details are here, it’s very straightforward. For process fans, here’s the sketch in blue pencil and brown brush pen, followed by the finished article which is mostly done in pentel brush pen.
Next up is a strip about a vampire (cashing in the twilight craze, natch) which I intended to enter into a competition, but i somehow found myself doing it in full colour with watercolours against my will, and it was too much work to make the deadline. it’s currently languishing in a state of two-thirds completeness, but the good news is it will be made into a minicomic for the next con I do, whenever that may be.
Lastly, my next project is a series of pencil drawings of Monsters of the Schwarzwald, featuring picturesque views of the Black Forest in Germany, and the monsters that (probably) live there. I’m really enjoying drawing in pencil, i’ve not done it for ages (not as the finished product anyway). I’m gonna see how these go and whether they might make a nice little book or series of prints or something. This is the nearly-finished version, will probably finish it later today and start another one (picture, not project, got to draw the line somewhere). Draw the line ha ha ha ha ha! See you next time pig lovers!
