Chewy Noh vs Sacco

My process from start to finish of Sacco took close to 9 years of drawing. I am attempting to be much faster on Chewy Noh.  One element I am correcting is creating roughs for the entire book before finishing any page to completion. So far I am 130 pages in (of roughs) with, hopefully, not too much more to go.  I started in April 2017 and have completed 3 of 5 chapters.  It’s hard, obviously with a day job and other commitments, to keep a steady pace.  I feel giving myself daily goals has helped me tremendously to meet those

Long Time No See

    Sorry guys. It’s been a long time (quite a long time) since my last post. I started focusing on completing Sacco and so the posts became scarce.  I’ve heard the saying “your first graphic novel is used to sell/publish your second graphic novel.” I do know cases where that is true (and not true)- so, yeah, here it is. I sent samples to publishers and got a decent amount of responses, but all passes. Sacco is not a light story, so it’s understandable that it won’t fit with certain publishers’ image of what they produce. I am working

Long time, No see

I know, I know.  It’s been a while between posts.  I’ve been busy.  I’ve finished the thumbnails for the entire story and have started drawing the rest.  (this is what I am currently working on)         I’ve also been doing some things on the side.  Here is the cover to Chewy Noh‘s third book. Hopefully I’ll have some more stuff to show soon.

Scary Fields Forever

Here is a frame from another freelancing project I’ve just completed for a monster theme anthology. The Cintiq made this fast and easy to complete compared to using a mouse.  What a headache this would have been.

Cintiq drawing

Picked up the 13HD Cintiq tablet.  It took a bit to get the brushes to agree with me, but -wow, this thing is great.  I like to draw with a .05 Pentel mechanical pencil but the pencil strokes are mostly lost after I ink with a traditional brush.  With the Cintiq I was able to digitally ink at about the same size as my pencil tip- keeping the energy the pencils have.  For example, below, I did a quick sketch of Yorick, based off a panel in a “Y: The Last Man” comic.  It took me about a half hour.
