small, inconsequential squirrels in your pocket
Pretty much verbatim from a conversation I had with Skwerly. We were chatting and realized that this must be how squirrels sound when they are talking to each other. muymuymuy battan
Part of a bunch of lazy comics I was working on but then I got lazier so here this is!
EDIT: Hmm I should make some of the text bigger but … muymuymuy lazy 3:
More daily sketches, all from this month (May). All the figure studies are ~30 or 60 seconds.
Haven’t posted any of it in a while, but I have been (mostly) keeping up with my daily sketches. So here are some messy doodles from February and March. Much looser mostly because I didn’t have/spend as much time, but that can be a helpful constraint in training the eye and hand. As always, references are noted alongside the sketches, and linked for convenience below.
Manarola - Cinque Terre (my pen was dying when I did this one)
Witchling issue 1 is printed and ready to go! It looks beautiful - the watercolours reproduced perfectly - the book is 48 pages and it’s set to debut this weekend at TCAF! This is a small printing of only 200 books, so hurry to get one while they last. If you can’t make it to the festival but still want a book, I’ll be selling them later this month at VanCAF, and later through my website.
Picked this up today at TCAF. It looks even more incredible in person! The details in the paintings are really impressive. (look at the wallpaper …!)
Uhhhh so full, back from dindin at Jack Astors with friends after TCAF. *exproads*
I only got to the festival at about 3:30-4pm and there were still SO MANY PEOPLE!! Regardless of whether I was able to squish up to a table, it’s always inspiring just to walk around and see what other artists are doing. HERE IS SOME AWESOME STUFF I GOT clockwise from left to right
Witchling, a stunning watercolour comic by Renee Nault. I am so happy I spotted this just before 5pm when the event closed for the day. I drooled (not literally) all over her work and gushed about the gorgeous artwork and panels/layouts and discipine/skill and blahblahblah. Had a wonderful conversation with Renee. Really excited to read this. Thanks for putting up with my spazzing!
Life on the Hill 2 (Japan/Tokyo edition) by Love Love Hill. I read this on the subway ride home with Skwerly and my sis reading along on either side of me and we all laughed really, really hard. sumafu my heart goes out to you (I fall down like that on my ankle all the time).
