I’m getting ready to move to Toronto on Thursday but this doesn’t stop me from doing a quick sketch of a cute girl.
I use American Apparel ads and models as ref a lot. I like to just sketch something for no one and it only take me a few minutes to do so…will add some colour to her once I am there.
Finally…The cover and 22 pages for SL2 are done! Now to assemble and letter it.
Exciting news, I am very close to getting Spirit Leaves Part 2 done. Just need to letter the pages and edit. I was hoping I could request a creative favour from you! I was hoping to include some artwork from fans and other artists. I would love to see your adaption of the the main characters or create your own demon/ spirit. I wanna put the artwork in the book and have you credited of course!
If you are interested then just ping a message me and my email details is on my About page. Nothing too fancy, you can be simple with black and white or colourful. You can draw one character or the whole cast… it is up to you.
JPEG or PDF Files. Resolution 200-300 and the deadline is 7th of Feb. Also if people need some reference of the characters I can post some pages up.
Cheers so much!
I am nearly there with SL2.I didn’t want to show the whole page as it may ruin some surprises so here are some close ups…the demon is revealed!
Last week I hosted a Comics Class at the CCA in Glasgow. I would say the impressive and large amounts of works produced proved that the class was a success and hope the kids got a lot out of it. The first half hour is always a little slow and dry but once you explain your work and show examples they can produce outstanding results. Ranging from ages of 8 -14 I had one or two fans who knew my work. Is always surreal and so flatterd when you meet people and kids who respond to your work postiviely ( one of the girls was actually called Freya which was so odd but cool! )
Most parents left to do their Xmas shopping for a few hours but a few stayed and contributed to the class, the feedback from them was great…you always have to win the folks over!
One of the parents tweeted about me…so far so good
That will probably be my last session on workshops and classes for a while as I move to Canada next month but that sure was a boost. Selling a few comics and an original page from SL was bought too.
Freya and I with a signed copy of SL…she was so lovely!
Seeing my work in the CCA was pretty darn cool too.
This has been the longest page to colour, taking 8 hours to do… but nearly there with the series!
I titled this as she looks tough…just another loose drawing and simple colouring.
Obviously a Ramona Flowers influence here.
Sometimes I have to step back from work and draw things I have an urge to draw… a huge fan of Gwen Stacy as Spiderwoman in Spiderverse, The New Batgirl 52 and Catwoman is a modern femme fatale.I really enjoyed pencilling and inking these, I wanted to draw these ladies and their super alter egos…
I will colour each one individually, but I do like the classic inks on a crisp white background
