July sketches!

Happy Monday! I'm pretty happy right now - I just figured out that a quick selective color adjustment is just the thing I needed to compensate for my scanner's love affair with yellow. Hooray!

Above: that woman from the Food Network who occasionally slips into Cookie Monster-speak.

A long time ago, I drew a piece personifying Lethe (river of lost memories) and Mnemosyne (goddess of memory). Above and to the left, I wondered how I would do that now. On the right, layout sketches - I'm working on something for a friend's band. Groovy!

Fact: everyone loves cowboys.

Celebrations abound! It started out as a silly idea for this week's comic (they would be standing on a boat! with the American flag in the background, and fireworks, and fried chicken-!!), but I actually really like this. Perhaps because the writing part took forever. I am amazed by people who can write nicely and efficiently.

Stupid monks.

I've been sketching a lot lately, and boy, do I have things to show you! But first, let's take a bit of time to look back.

I dug these out of old sketchbooks from, well, middle school. I think. The first one might be a bit more dated. (I really, really hope it is.)

Summer life drawing!

My best friend was in town recently! We decided to go on a life drawing adventure, since both of us were a bit out of practice - and who should appear but this lovely-pouted lady?

That last one was tough for both of us! There are some issues, but all in all, I'm feeling pretty good about my improvement over the past year - I've been really trying to explore color and nail down the anatomy that I'm actually seeing, rather than the stock memories I tend to draw from.

Man, I'm getting old.
