New illustration! This one’s about the totally overblown anxiety I used to have surrounding selling girl scout cookies every year.
Another piece done in Daniel Fishel's class! Trying out gouache and colored pencils, with cleanup in PS. I also did a lot of important research involving looking closely at and then devouring cookies. :)
New illustration- about dealing (poorly) with being sidelined by injuries as a kid.
Sorry to have been so quiet here lately! I’m taking two classes (this piece was made in Daniel Fishel’s indy study course, which is totally great!) this spring, and between that and a new comic in the works for MOCCA/TCAF, I’m swamped. I’m always chatting away on twitter, though, so feel free to come talk over there!
very very silly Photoshop pun valentines
Molly started something amazing with her Photoshop pun valentines! The world needs more of them so you should add ‘em on below.
The Hana Doki Kira .pdf just went out to all the kickstarter backers! The Year 86 folks did an amazing job with this anthology- I’ve read and re-read it and I love it to pieces. Though I’m biased. :)
Here’s a little version of the illustration I did to go with my very short comic- kind of a prologue, but mostly just a little nonsequential window.
I was visiting my parents in NY this past weekend, and went into the city to meet up and draw with some other wonderful cartoonists on Saturday! Shoutouts in order of arrival to Alison, Aimee, Molly, Aatmaja, Meg, Rel, Kat, and Alisa. I don’t have websites for Eric and Cynthia (and Kat, I didn’t get to meet your other friend!), but they’re all awesome folks and it was a really fun day.
Every year I think I’ll do hourlies fast enough that I don’t spend the whole day drawing them, and every year I get stuck in marker land. It’s fun, but I really think the better way to do it is FAST so your whole day isn’t just lived in between bits of comics. One of these years!
PS- link me to yours, I’d love to see ‘em! ?
Careydraws here! I’m an early fall witch- lots of sunshine, long days, but cool enough to wear your witchy boots and longer sleeves. Bit of a hermit off in an apple orchard somewhere, but you’re welcome to visit!
I drew my witchsona! This has been a really adorable project to see everyone’s takes on.
I painted my Spring 2014 comics table crew! Done right after all that gouache, and I’m pretty clearly trying to fake its blockiness digitally. Enjoyed making up that messy crowd, which I drew for long enough to decide who in there is crushin’ on who.
Coming this spring to a city near you!*
*if you live in NY (MOCCA), NJ (ABPCC), or toronto (TCAF)!
Like John Campbell said, you don’t have to draw a lot to enjoy making these. It’s a fun journaling exercise, and even really simple doodled figures can be a nice little snapshot of your day.
For Dirty Diamonds’ milestone fifth issue, we want to showcase the bit moments in our comics experiences! Be it buying a book at the local comic shop, or walking into your first big comics convention, or the first time you ever shared your work with someone- everyone found comics in a different way. We all tell stories through comics, but why comics? Dirty Diamonds wants to know.
Submissions are due March 10th, and they’re planning a kickstarter so they can pay everybody per page. Go read the full submission info!
