Run, Don't Walk

Woah, hey! I made a thing! A thing for a Clamp fanzine that some friends of mine are putting together. In the wild days of my misspent youth, I ended up reading a ton of this kind of manga, but I can't say I have a single regret. If you have no idea what Clamp is, then should get yourself a shojou education

The group is super-prolific, and out of all the works they've made, I decided to make a tribute to one of their more unabashedly absurd titles, Duklyon: Clamp School Defenders, which is a zany parody of the metal hero genre. My favorite part is near the end, when an antagonist turns the heros' dog Inuko-San into a dangerous kaiju monster simply by making her really huge. The resolution is splendidly silly.

But yeah! Everybody worked real hard on the zine, and it came together nicely. Check it out, if you can!

Finally managed a lineup of the characters that my friends and I made...they're for the campaign we're currently playing in. From right to left: Ben's character Gronningor, our resident grizzly tank; Helgora, Jabari's duty-bound, portal-slinging messenger; Eule, Jon's owlish bard/healer; and Gren, my scheming contortionist art thief. 

Maybe if I have some time, I'll add a couple NPCs.

Just some quick character designs I'm revisiting for a future story idea. Got to do a lot of awesome research on traditional Nepalese costumes for this...studying history and anthropology while hunting for reference pictures is one of my absolute favorite parts of being an illustrator. (If there were a position akin to a visual art dramaturg, man, that would be the job for me, hahaha.) 

More to come soon...updates featuring zine submissions, comic strips and probably some party art for a few campaigns I've played in. Hang on to those hats, hapless readers!
