Minecraft Conversations

I had food poisoning yesterday, which meant the kids got unlimited app time, and I had plenty of time to reflect on the absurd things they had to say. Catching up on my comic today!

I ran out of planned material, so I'm a little late today, and maybe fishing a little for ideas.

A House Blessing

Orthodox bless their homes each year between Theophany and the beginning of Lent. Our house blessing was yesterday, and so today's comic reflects on the sacredness of all things. "Nothing is profane except that which you profane."

Feelin' Groovy

I really am groovy like Paul Simon, guys. 
I rushed through this comic a bit because I just got a new Wacom tablet (!) and I'm trying to figure out how to use it. So I figure its okay if things get a little worse for a few days, because soon they'll get better, right? Let's find out!

Love Happens

I had a request for a Valentine's comic (and apparently I take requests now), so I'm putting together a few comics about love. Here's where it begins.

Let's talk about horses.

Watching the conversations of kids, especially the girls, and their social dynamics is entertaining.

Don't forget my mouth.

This week I'm focusing on drawing figures from life. Watching other illustrators last week, I can more readily understand how each component of a comic book is often done by a different professional: writing, drawing, coloring, lettering. I'm especially impressed by the skill it takes to make the comic figures look clean and simple but still with correct proportions. I'm out of practice, so I think I will worry less about narrative for now. Spending some time just drawing the figure is in order.

Expect lots of kids this week, since that's who I'm surrounded by most of the time. And like this one, they give great advice while you're drawing. :)

Comic Convention: Part 4

Wrapping it up! This has been a big learning week, and I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend with plenty of reading.

Friday Night

Apparently, this is what grown ups do on Friday night.

Clearly, I'm a little off since this was drawn late Friday night, and I'm posting it on Monday morning - but today is hourly comic day, so today's post won't come until late, or tomorrow morning. I'm not sure yet. I've got a busy day ahead, so I'm hoping I can keep up with the hourlies! I'll give it my best shot - anyway, enjoy this (scheduled) post for this morning.

Drawing in the Waiting Room

I meant to develop a routine of drawing in the mornings, but I've been enjoying it and drawing whenever I can.
