I've been really busy working on various comics stuff (coming to this blog... soon) but here are the few dailies I managed to squirt out, some concept scribbles for another comic, and a piece of Community fanart.

Finally, finally settling down after my reintroduction to the USA, I've got some stuff to post! While in Chicago I've been doing some daily strips. Not my forte but I hope they're not too boring? Feedback is appreciated!

Today I sat down a wrote out a couple lists (I LOVE lists) of the artists/writers whose art/writing I am particularly excited about right now. 

Inspiration, Visual:

-Egon Schiele
-Jillian Tamaki
-Sam Bosma
-Gustav Klimt
-Katie Turner
-Jordan Crane
-Jesse Moynihan
-Richard Haines


Inspiration, Written:

-David Foster Wallace
-Cat & Girl
-Pictures for Sad Children
-Jason
-Jesse Moynihan (again)


Inspiration, DCiGTH:

-Lucy Knisley
-Johnny Wander
-Octopus Pie


I guess some people, knowing only my work on Darwin Carmichael might think I spend my time reading cute comics about cute stuff but really left entirely to my own devices I tend to gravitate towards the weird/fucked-up end of the spectrum.  Someday, time permitting, I am really looking forward to making some disturbing comics.

My New Notebook [Aug. 9th, 2010|03:47 pm]

This tickled me too much not to post; my newest sketchpad/notebook, purchased in a stationary store in the lonesome city of Taebaek, South Korea.

I Love Heart NY

Aside from the joy I got in finding this bit of NYC-love in my little town across the world, and how much I love the inaccurate rendering/location of a certain famous building, my absolute favorite aspect of this notebook is the block of text at the bottom of the page, which since it's a little hard to read in the photo I'll re-paste here:

New York is the most populous city in the United States, and the center of the New York metropolitan area, which is one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world. A leading global city, New York exerts a powerful influence over global commerce, finance, media, culture, art, fashion, research, education, and entertainment. As host of the United Nations Headquarters, it is also an important center for international affairs. The city is often referred to as New York City to distinguish it from the state of New York, of which it is a part. Located on a large natural harbor on the Atlantic coast of the Northeastern United States, the city consists of five boroughs: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island.
 
The remarkable grammatical soundness/accuracy of this paragraph (not common in Korean products), and it's encyclopedia-like tone led me to suspect what I can now confirm is true: that this paragraph was stolen wholesale from the Wikipedia article on "New York City".

Love it, love it, love it.

Well, I can't get the 6th volume in Korea, but I can at least draw some fanart and look forward to the day I get my hands on it.  No spoilers, please.

Oh Stephen Stills. I would have such mad make-outs with you!

On Artistic Development and Ugly Cupids [Jul. 16th, 2010|10:55 am]

Accomplishment

I try to avoid delving too much into my artistic process on public forums because I feel like those sorts of things are only useful and interesting from people who know what they're doing, but in terms of my experience as a developing artist the above kind of covers it.  Minus the stress-tears and hair-pulling.  The gap between where my art is and where I want it to be is so vast that any development is just a momentary reprieve from the inner pressure.  I wonder if it's like that for other artists out there.  Guys?

For some reason I still drew myself with glasses even though I got LASIK two weeks ago and no longer wear them.  I think drawing myself with eyes would be weird.

I will conclude this post with some drawings of a deranged cupid. I really enjoyed playing around with his squishy face:

This counts as "research", I think.
