Poster City!
Poster City!

I find myself attending Ottawa Comicon next month, and decided that I should probably have some new things to sell when I go there. As a result the past couple of weeks have been spent making posters. The biggest challenge with these were translating some of the more interesting colours I use into CMYK, but […]

Custom Shoes
Custom Shoes

These are custom shoes I did for myself and Cory. the process was simple (but messy) and only took an afternoon, and the result is awesome shoes that should last all summer and never fade (if I did it properly). The next time I do a pair, I’ll make a process tutorial instead of just taking pics […]

Crayonism
Crayonism

These various drawings were done using only the Crayon tool in Paint Tool SAI. I’ve done them for a variety of reasons–some are commissioned, most are characters from my comic that I wanted to reasonably redesign for after a bit of a time jump in continuity, and one of them was just for fun. I’ll […]

Samira and Maxwell
Samira and Maxwell

These two are characters who will be making their debut in my webcomic, The End, some time later this year. These quick busts were to get their base skin and hair colours down so that I don’t have to  worry about it later.

RANSOM Revisited
RANSOM Revisited

Back when I got my start with webcomics, I was in highschool and drew a picture of a kid with some zombies. It was a neat concept, and from that single image spawned a webcomic that I would struggle with  for the next four or so years of my life and eventually abandon. I’ve come to […]

Brain Child
Brain Child

I recently acquired a brown, 8.5×11 inch recycled paper sketchbook, and decided to break out my pencil crayons (coloured pencils to all of you Americans, I guess) for the first time since I discovered markers back in highschool. This image wasn’t planed, and I did not sketching prior to it–a combination of conditions that often […]

Screentone-o-rama!
Screentone-o-rama!

Back when I got my start in digital comics, I was very much into manga and OEL publications. Screentones were very visually attractive to me, as well as attractive because of how much time they saved. I haven’t done much with screen tones in the seven year interim, until this week. August 13th was Jenny […]

Out of My Element
Out of My Element

A couple of friends have been planning to launch their webcomic, Out of My Element, for a while. They generally use free hosting, but this time they decided to try and go for a custom wordpress website. I gave them the complete package, with consultation 100% of the way. These are just some of the […]

Doctors Who?
Doctors Who?

A while ago, Evan from You Need To Eat! approached me about doing some art for a segment of the site in where he reviews every episode of Dr. Who ever. I’d never seen any Dr. Who (still haven’t gotten around to it, actually), and I’ve also never done a caricature that wasn’t a horrible doodle. He […]
