Three pieces to add today. These were done a few weeks ago but I waited to use Martha Street's nice BIG scanner instead of tiling the images together on my shittastic scanner. Normally I draw on 11 x 17" paper or in a larger sketchbook so it makes scanning at home difficult - thus my being unable to upload the second I'm done an image, leaving Lisa an ancy girl!
Yes, everyone imagines what they would look like in a certain cartoon. Every artist draws themselves at least once in somebody else's style. I've done it it more than once. It's the narcissist in me. I guess this is what I would look like on Daria. That cartoon completes me.
Tryin' to get in the make-comic-mode, which is hard because the most I can seem to do is practice my style and make mock covers. When will the REAL work come? WHEN?? Sigh, I am a huuuuge procrastinator and need to address that, especially with Comic Con coming. I have to figure out what the heck I'm gonna sell!
Carbon cover, 2012
Curb Angels - Waffles, 2012
CARBON would be semi-autobiographical, but not so much so because I would embellish personal stories A LOT to make them more interesting, but not to the point where they're too fantastical. A lot of the material would come from life experiences as an unsuccessful alumni and exploit my own self-deprecating humor. It would also explore possible scenarios as to what the future might hold for a post grad struggling to adjust to adulthood. The first person to call it a "coming of age tale" will receive a nice Cliche Observation of the Year Award, which I will personally sign.
Curb Angles' story needs work, and lots of it. It dances between drug abuse, international travel, underground gangs and possibly sex trafficking... plus the kitchen sink?
