7/2/2018 Lettering Improvements

I’ve been away finishing up commissions but I finally gained the time to stream and put the finishing touches on Shirley’s Day.

It was mostly lettering and adding new dialogue, word balloons and bolding emphasized words to make the speech “sound” better.

I’ve been chipping away at this comic for so long that, I’m a bit mad at myself that I’m taking so long on it.

I’m getting closer to the finish line though. I just gotta keep at it and not get discouraged. It’s the only thing I can do, really.

The Chalk Cap


Art Stuff at Water Tower Place

I’ve been at the Water Tower Place in Chicago doing live art at The Chalk Cap.

It was a fun time hanging out with people and making some cool custom hats! This idea is pretty cool though, as you can buy a cap with a surface on it where you can draw on it with chalk marker and it can be cleaned off with water!

It was a bit getting used to but it’s good to try out new mediums! I drew names, character requests and whatever else I could think of It was pretty great and I’ll totally show up next time!

4/30/2018 Even More Art Stuff

More progress on my Rat Kingdom illustration painting for my stream last Saturday!

A tiny bit of color edits I had time to look at for Gogh the Goat Wizard. I’m not as confident with my color choices if I don’t have markers to do the palette choosing for me.

Some other experiments in painting over my old pencil artwork. I’m not feeling the values to be honest with myself.

An more older sketches.

4/21/2018 Rat Kingdom Painting

For my latest stream, I did something new where I painted my Rat Kingdom sketch I did a while ago.

In other good news, I am only one page of coloring away from completing Shirley’s Day! I’ll probably rework the lettering a bit and add a cover page, but I am very close to the completion of this three year project!
