Sandwich #1

This is the cover to the anthology comic book Bill Hauser and I had as our class project for our students at The Art Academy. Everyone, including us, contributed a 2 page story. I'll post my two pages in the near future. For the cover, Bill did the pencils, I did the inks. Enjoy.

Inktober 1-10

I participated in Inktober this year, a month long celebration of drawing with ink. I picked a theme of pumpkins and mashed it up with pop culture icons. Here's the first 10 days of drawings.

New Class, New Comics

My friend Bill Hauser and I are back at it, teaching comic books to kids and with it comes new work that I make in class as an example.
  Once again, this exercise is to do a 5 panel page, with a variety of angles: Close-up, silhouette, worm's eye, bird's eye, and a mid/establishing shot.
   Next time these two will remember to bring their guns to a duel...

Teaching Part 2

This was my attempt at a class exercise to draw a 5 panel page, each panel being a specific kind of shot. Birds eye view, worms eye view, mid level, silhouette, and a close-up. While I got each kind of angle, I clearly cannot count...

Teaching part 1

This week I have been co-teaching a comic book camp for kids with my friend Bill Hauser, who is the man responsible for me getting my first paying comic book job. We're having a good time, and the kids seem to be actually listening to us and having fun.
    I inked this little comic, as well as a piece by Bill, in front of the class as part of an inking demonstration. I used one of Bills brushes and his ink, and I now realize just how crappy my own materials are.
