Snacks and Squidinking Still

Man, this feels nice. I made a short comic last year, that I hadn't finished filling in solid blacks on, so I'm squidinking the pages before I head off for my closing shift tonight. (Firmly putting that out of my mind now.) Listening to The Breeders while I work seals the deal, as does rendering the Triple Ginger Snaps (just offscreen) an endangered species.

True Stories, All

Comics! Quick, poorly scanned ones from my sketchbook, about yours truly and the glamorous life I lead. 

 Usually, I'm pretty relaxed about co-habitating with beetles, spiders, and other little critters: bugs generally don't scare me. But dang. Thousand-leggers, man. (Or house centipedes...whichever you call them depends on where you're from, I guess.) Seriously, though. Those guys are fuckin' fast. Even if I know they're benevolent, and only want to snack on other housebugs...I just can't deal with all those legs.

The Girl With Hair Like THIS

Oh man, dudes. I could draw the inimitable Bryan Lee O'Malley's Ramona Flowers all day. There's plenty of terrific fan-art of this character out there, but it seems most of the ones I've seen depict her just kinda...standing around, wearing nice clothes? I decided to remedy this.

(I also just love the idea of her regularly using her subspace bag as a sidecar for Scott whenever she's impatient to get someplace at rollerblade speed.)

Crowbar Couture

A sloppy, ten-minute ink warmup that was super inspired by zis man. His ink work is absolutely gorgeous. Mine...not so much, hahaha. But it was really liberating to get back to traditional inking. I feel like I have trouble drawing fashionable ladies without making them menacing.

(I don't think it's a problem, though.)
