So this also started life as a water color doodle, and then changed a lot to turn into this.

The Bold Fisherman

So this was a short comic I did based off of an old folksong. This is also the second comic I have ever done, and I definitely learned a lot making this.

A girl

In an effort to update this blog more, have another piece of work!

I kind of like this idea of working right over the top of my little water colors.

An update

And off I go to San Diego Comic Con. It'll be a blast, I'm sure!

In the mean while, remember the sketch a day I was doing? I cleaned one of them up!

I go to the smithsonian. I like taxidermed animals, they don't move about.

The Bongo gave me some real trouble since I decided to try a somewhat wonky perspective.

I figured I only really needed scientific names for the non-north american animals.

Sometimes I paint stuff for my brothers.

So blame them.

Ink sketch

Thought I would start keeping a ink only sketchbook (Like Jillian Tamaki mentioned in her blogpost!), and I'm ditching watercolor for now. Because watercolor and I do not get along.

The tiger (who looks.. um) is from a photo, no under line or rough drawing or anything like that.

Watercolor, attempt numero 3

I like watercolor with line work. Got it. Now to work with that a little bit more.

This is probably the smallest one yet, and not on any sort of watercolor paper. Thought I would try something else with watercolors.

I made a map!

My brother wanted a map of a land that he made up, so he drew something terrible in MS Paint, and I made him this.

I took a sheet of Canson's sketch/drawing paper, scattered instant coffee over it. Poured boiling water over it. Stuck it in the oven on a very low temperature because the color didn't seem to be soaking into the paper. Then I took it out, law it on a cookie cooling rack, and let it dry. Then I drew a grid over his MS Paint map, and a grid over the torn up and textured paper, and made him this. All the color was added in Photoshop.

Watercolor try 2!


Yeah, I still don't like watercolor. Maybe I should stop trying to paint fruit?

The only thing I come remotely close to liking is the line work, if it can be called that. Maybe I should take my cue from that.
