Midday sketch

My motivation towards work today has been slightly lacking so I spent a little bit of the early day drawing. Here's Pug Cerberus. I know it's been done before, but hell I like pugs. Plus, a pug with three heads on one body would be three times the cuteness without any increase in poop!

A few sketches from over the weekend

I hadn't planned on putting up a blog post today, but since I actually did a few sketches over the weekend, I figured "Why the hell not?" It's a bit all over the place today, but what else is new right? First up is a page of some doodles of Bob from Bob Howard Plumber of the Unknown, a comic put out by out good friends Raf Nieves and Dan Dougherty. They're currently looking for pin-ups for issue 3 of the book so I wanted to try and get a better feel for the look of the guy before coming up with an actual pin-up drawing. I still haven settled o which style I like best yet.

 Next up is a drawing I did in Sheila's notebook while we waited for the pizza to arrive. I forgot to bring my sketchbook and pencil with me so I borrowed her nub of pencil and her journal and drew in the back of it (I didn't want to take up any pages that could actually be used for her writing). Oddly, we didn't order any mushrooms on our pizza. We got a pizza with sausage, jalapeno, giardiniera and a garlic crust for those who were curious.
 This one was just done mostly with the side of a pencil because I was trying to sharpen the tip of it. Heh.
 This one... I don't know. It was the end of the day.

So I wrapped up a deadline last Saturday..

and instead of jumping right into drawing again like I had originally planned, I ended spending most of it decompressing a little bit. I know, bad me. Seriously though, I'm STILL trying to catch up on sleep. Even in the complete absence of deadlines, I'm still unable to sleep for 8 hours.

But enough of all that. I did manage to draw a little. I found that when I try to sit at the drawing table or set aside time to draw, I choke now. No idea why, but my mind blanks out. So, for the time being I'm just trying to draw when I can. Sketches while I wait for food to cook, or when I'm waiting in xbox live for the other players to be ready. The end goal is that I get comfortable enough to be able to draw on command, but who knows. Here's a couple pages out of the sketchbook. It's a little all over the place.

Back from the dead hopefully.

Hey all. Sorry for being away so long. I've been busy knocking out Golden Age Marvel Comics Volume 6. It was a bit of a bumpy ride, but with Sheila's help I managed to make the deadline.

Anyway, I'm hoping to get more drawing and messing around in the weeks to come. Initial plans are to try and get a pinup done for Bob Howard, Plumber of the Unknown. I'll still have the Masterworks stuff to work on, but I've been assured that the upcoming stuff I'm working will give me some room to breathe.

Still alive!

Well, another week has gone by and no updates. Sorry about that. I've been trying to catch up/stay on pace with my work so that hasn't left me as much time to draw. I did manage to doodle a little, but not much.

 It's only two sketches so I can't call it a sketch dump or even a mini-dump. I guess sketch dumpling would be more numerically and ethnically appropriate.
