I’m working on a new website that will act as a single destination for all the things I do. Check it out, it’s a work in progress (as is everything on the internet!). One of the new things is Original Art. I don’t sell originals very often, almost never. In fact, I can’t even remember the last time I offered originals for sale. It’s been years! But, my flat files are overflowing, so I’ll be offering pieces throughout the summer. I’ve got the first batch (Batch 001) up. They range from very cheap ($20) to cheap ($200). There are illustrations, posters, little paintings and (for the first time ever!) original comics pages. Take a look. I’m also going to take commissions this summer, details soon!
Art for a recent poster I drew for the David Lynch series at the Trylon.
This is how final front/back cover (pictured, click to see full-size) to Beta Testing the Apocalypse came to be (see parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 of this series).
It was one of the most complicated drawings I’d drawn. It was done! Or was it… ?
Another poster (here’s the previous one) for my favorite Twin Cities movie house: The Trylon.
If you’re just joining us, check out parts 1, 2, 3.
It took me a while to work up the nerve to ink this thing. Normally I would’ve inked most of the building with rules & rapidographs. But I decided against it… Since everything was so rigidly planned out, I wanted to have a more organic line in the finishing process. Click on the image to super-size.
A few quick tests of the pencils with type & color.
After the cover concept was approved it was time to pencil… this was the most complicated drawing I’ve done in a long time… maybe since architecture school? Click on the image for full-sized glory.
Over the next few posts, I’m going to show some process imagery of the Beta Testing the Apocalypse cover. Here are the original two ideas for the cover… idea 2 won the day in the end.
Found this while doing some cleaning. A trial comic done with different tools to see how well it’ll shrink. I think it’s from around the time I made Trans Atlantis.
