Back in the early fall of 2015, I was debating whether or not to take the plunge and get a Wacom Cintiq for creating digital artwork. I had used my Intuos for the past five years and it had worked fine. I had tested out the Cintiq back in college, and I thought it was...

I have been hanging out a lot recently with a friend and fellow artist who loves Hamilton as much as I do. This past week we challenged ourselves to draw Eliza and Angelica Schuyler as characters in our own illustrative styles. After several attempts to draw Angelica a...

One of my favorite cartooning exercises is creating faces out of different shapes such as circles, squares, diamonds, triangles, etc. I find this particularly helpful sometimes because I often fall into the trap of making all my characters, particularly those that are...

Day 22: Finished Page 9! Is it weird that my favorite part of the drawing is the hand holding the beer bottle in panel 3?

Day 24: Starting to ink Page 10 with my Pentel Pocket brush pen (pictured), which is my favorite tool of choice when inking.

Since last Sunday was Easter, of course I had to draw a bunny. It was also a nice way to practice more of the outlining with colored pencil technique. I do like the softer look of the colored pencil outline with marker illustrations. I also sketched out some thumbnails...

Week 3 of the 100 Days of Making Comics challenge. Although my ultimate goal is to eventually find a full time job, I do like the fact that cobbling together part-time work does give you more time to work on personal projects. 

Day 15: Creepy-faced lady receives a...

Feeling inspired by the artist Cloverkin, whom I saw at the Indiana Comic Con yesterday, and her “Pets in Armor series,” I decided to draw some decked out animal characters of my own. And, what better than to combine two of my favorite things: cats and a certain hip-ho...

My progress for the second week of the 100 Days of Making Comics Challenge. Since I spent most of the time that week working full time on a graphic design job, I had little time to devote to the challenge, but I still managed to get some work done. I also got a new pho...

It's been a week since I started the 100 Days of Making Comics Challenge, and what a week it has been! In addition to working on my comic, I've had a couple graphic design-related jobs pop up to keep me busy. I'm still determined to spend at least 30 minutes on the com...

Here’s my progress for Day 2 of the 100 Days of Making Comics Challenge. I drew and began inking Page 5, which is the final page of the introduction.
