New Sketchbook Plans!

Had an amazing meeting yesterday morning over in San Rafael w/ Jackie and Adrianne at GlobalPSD. These girls are top notch professional ladies, and I was impressed with how they handled everything from the meeting and call backs, to the rapport, the conversation, everything! They are really down the earth ladies, and I cannot WAIT to do work with them! I am putting together a sketchbook in time for APE Con in SF this year, and I need to get to crackin on that bad boy now.

I'm confident that these ladies will be able to help me out with whatever it is I need. Right now, I have no working title for the book, but I can tell you that it will be AH-MAZING!!! This is going to be high quality stuff, and I know that it will help me be able to stand out in a sea of really big fish as an artist. Over the last few days, I have been thinking seriously about my path as an artist, and really have been considering attempting to do this as a full time gig, and just follow my dreams. I have so many plans, and so many things to do; and unfortunately all of this costs money. I'm going to be using these sketchbooks as a double sword to not only cut my path into a new career, but to also get my studio moving forward with my projects that have been lingering on the back burner. 

Got a few projects I am in the middle of that will be webcomics coming really soon that I will be promoting at APE, as well as the sketchbook. I'm going to get a few prints ready too! Anyway, I really appreciate everyone that is still around and reading my blog about my journeys as an artist. Talk with you guys really soon!

Dr. Who Warmup Sketch

A new warm up I did of good ol' Dr. Who w/ floating TARDIS! This was a fun one to draw as I have never drawn Dr. Who before. Done on 8.5 x 11 high quality bristol, and Copic Markers w/ Pentel ink brush. Who fans, can get their hands on this one for a decent price over at my Big Cartel store! Let me know what you guys think of it!

Harleyquin - Warmup Sketch 1

This is a warmup sketch that I did to start out my day. This was done on high quality 8.5 x 11 cardstock paper, with Copic Liners, and colored with Copic Markers. Harley has always been a fun character for me to draw. This is for sale in my new Big Cartel shop for only $20! Go grab it now! I'm going to be selling all my warm up sketches there from now on, so watch the blog here, or my twitter to see when I put a new one up!

Saw Dark Knight rises last night, and it was AH-MAZIIIING!!! Will definitely go see it at least one more time. And to me hands down the best Batman film Nolan has made. Very well done, and very well executed. Loved it, loved it, LOVED IT!!! More on this later! In the meantime, let me know what you guys think of my drawing.

The Swaggernauts

This started out as an idea for a team name for some colleagues of mine at work. The team leader named us The Swaggernauts. I'm not one for the word swag, or any variation of it, but even I had to admit that this was a cool name. After trying to figure out what a Swaggernaut would look like, I then took my vision further and came up with what you will see below.

I have been studying movie posters for B-Movies, and came up with this idea. I think it came out really good. I am going to be taking this idea and running with it, and turn it into a daily comic strip really soon from Obsidian Studios soon. Thinking about something to do with life. We shall see when the time comes. In the meantime though, let me know what you guys think and enjoy!
