Mermaids are Freaky

I did a doodle of a weird scaly haired mermaid a while back and was itching to draw a short comic so I pulled that doodle out and made this little tale.

I always thought mermaid mythology was weird enough but this is my take on it.

This is my favourite use of pattern that I have done in a while.

Also check out the new header I put together.

The hard toil of finally having a day job is stopping me from posting here regularly but I will not let that stop me. I am still working hard at building my body of work. I've been using Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook alot more because they make it so easy to post simultaneously on all platforms.  

Well enough rambling here's one of the pieces that I have created since last I posted.

It is a design for a Threadless competition that opened up this month. The theme was Super Cats and I could think of nothing more super than a cyberneticly enhanced feline battle tank. He is a lean mean purring machine.

Long Time No Post

It's been a while between updates but you know how life gets in the way. But it is time to start showing off what I am working on. I am making a short 8 page comic about the Elf character that I made up last year. I've been wanting to do a mini comic for a while now and I've wanted to do a story about the hopeless elf for even longer so I am killing 2 birds with one stone. I hope you like this first page I hope to post snippets of my progress more regularly. I have still been working hard and I may post some of it soon but time got away from me.

I've been trying out all the new stuff I figured out on the previous project I completed. I love learning new techniques and I always do when I start a new project.

Hope you enjoy.

Draw-A-Day February Day 26

Part of a Project with Arthouse Co-Op called Infinite Scroll: Space.
''The Infinite Scroll series is inspired by the surrealist drawing exercise known as exquisite corpse, in which a group of people work collaboratively on a drawing without seeing the other parts that come before and after. Sign up and we'll email you the template and instructions for creating your design, drawing, or illustration of a journey through outer space. We're expecting aliens, nebulas, orbiting objects, and anything else you can invent!''
Hope You like it.

Draw-A-Day February Day 13 Bonus Character Design

I wanted to try something a bit different so I decided to create a quirky female character. I like how some artists use patterns to colour flats and decided to create my own patterns to do that with. I am really please with how it worked out and will definitely try it again.

The Sketchbook Project

Before the new year started I finally received my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project. I have signed up for the tour which is going to be a collection of graphic novels. I have completely thumbnailed one idea which was... baaaaaaaaaaaaaad. It was derivative and trying way to had to feign that it was interesting, it really wasn't. I have wiped the slate clean and started again trying to do something more interesting and I think I have it.

A quick character design for my Sketchbook Project Graphic Novel
