Also, Samantha came with me! Here's some of here sketches:

I bought a new little 5" x 7" sketch pad yesterday and did all my warm up sketches in there. I made a FLICKR SET of them. Here's a sample:

liar and figure studies


So I went to a figure studies session last night. I was in a pretty bad drawing mood:

Can you tell?

I finished the painting I started last time, it doesn't look as good as the last one I did. It's way too full:

Hangin with comic dudes!


It was really awesome meeting Josh Blair, the organizer of the Candy or Medicine anthologies, in real life. I drew the cover to the latest issue, and I have a 4 page story for the next one coming out in a couple months! You should pick a few up, they're only a dollar.

Also, check out this sweet post about my 24 hour comic by Bryce at Good Waves! His illustrations are getting better and better.

Ice Powers



I was going to make a post just about all the small paintings I've done for people this year but instead decided to just make a Flickr album so I can keep updating it. So check it out RIGHT HERE and remember I do these small paintings for like $5! I've always hated Flickr's interface, but hey. I also Uploaded this sweet VIDEO from Bordo Bello. And also, thanks for everyone who ordered my SNOOD 24 hour comic! I'll mail them all out today or tomorrow.

SNOOD AND THE DESTROYER'S HOLE!

My first 24 hour comic is all printed and ready to be bought by you!

Here are the front and back covers of the mini comic:




Interior page:


They're only $2, and I only printed 100 of them. I don't think I'll ever reprint them, so when they're gone, they're gone! Get one while it's still here! ha


Here's a 3 page sneak peek:




And check it out! Samantha found a little felt Snood I made a long time ago:



PS: If you live internationally and are thinking of getting Snood (thanks!), remember about my international shipping paypal button (the last one)! Thanks, you're the best!

24 hour comic day!

This weekend was 24 hour comics day! It took place between 10 am saturday and 10 am sunday at Time Warp comic shop in Boulder, definitely the best comic shop I've been to in Colorado. I did so well I even managed to have time to do a fast daily comic:

People in this comic: Leila Del Duca (check her 24 hour comic pages HERE), Michael Prince and Scorpio Steele.

I did really well in the challenge, and completed my 24 page (well 22 page with an end page and an outro page...) comic and even had time left over to draw the cover and back cover! It's called 'Snood and the Destroyer's Hole.' I wasn't going to put it in mini comic form (I was thinking about just putting it in my next years collection of spinadoodles strips), but I'm pretty happy with it so I am going to make a mini-comic out of it. I'll make it like $2 or something. Here's a couple sample pages:



These are pages 2 and 3. I tried a new marker technique with this story. It took me like 5 pages to make it look ok, so the later pages are a little less confusing. Also here's some Snood 'fan-art' from my buddy Lonnie who was sitting next to me:


It was really fun, hopefully we're still in Denver next year so I can do it again! And finally, here's my comic from yesterday:
