A place to lay down my thoughts and crafts, so that I may spare the rest of the world.

Comic Con Recap

Worry not I have been actually maintaining daily sketches... albeit I have been rather lazy when it comes to posting the images. I'm working on being able to rein in my over reaching powers of procrastination. The Calgary Comic Con was a blast. Didn't sell as much as I had hoped, but after holding a con postmortem, I think we were able to figure out why: Stand out more. Be more up front with your intent and product.

After some reflection, this point holds true to me as an individual as well. I need to start posting more, making more statements, showing more projects, sharing my thoughts [Within reason. There's some places in my head that a sane mind should be spared the trip.] Nothing earth shattering really, just a good solid realization for me to focus on for the next few months. Anyhow, onto the sketches:

2 more days

Comic Expo draws near, and the first print run of the comics, postcards and bookmarks have come in. This will be a very exciting and educational event :]

First and foremost, the daily sketches for the past two days:

Also added one more postcard depicting the capital of third culture, the Julians:

I also forgot to show this the last update, but it's the cover for the first issue of the story "Strauss":

Catch Up Time!

Past weekend has been incredibly busy, trying to get things in order for next week's Comic Expo. Unfortunately I misjudged workload for both myself and other people so I'm caught with my pants down at the moment... art wise. Spent a good chunk of the last 2 days trying to learn how to do basic matte/speed painting. Haven't quite reached the "speedy" part yet but it's getting there :]

Daily Sketch 002

Sketches of people's appendages whilst on the bus. Need to start scraping the rust off my sketching skills. Drawing hands while the subjects are moving/changing gestures gives an added fun factor.

Daily sketch 001

It's about time that I got back into the routine. To be honest it's always hard to muster up the gusto at the end of the workday, I'm sure a lot of you will agree. Sometimes I even wonder if my internal critique is actively trying to have me quite the discipline altogether [Not that I would, just that I am indeed my own worst enemy].

Maybe I have to mentally turn it around in my head... The more my mind fights and procrastinates walking back to the computer, the more I will break it and conform it to my will >:U !
