Happy Automobile Breakdown

Sometimes my warm up scribbles turn
into one page comics produced in a hurry.

Which have very little plot.

A book in progress

So I’m illustrating this book I wrote.
They won’t actually be saying “Dear…God” in the
final draft. After all, everyone knows that dogs don’t
believe in God. It’ll be published next year. I
can tell you more then…

Hospital Comic

I believe I posted these somewhere a few
years ago before I created this site, but I thought I’d post it
again as I’ve been lax in scanning warm up sketches.

While I waited for my Mother to recover from surgery
a few years back I had nothing to do but sit and wait.
Thus, I sketched this “on the spot” comic about the
hospital room. Enjoy?

Not…a warm up.

Doing some illustrations for a book (That I’m
not sure if I can talk about?) and have many warm up
sketches I haven’t been posting due to a busy schedule.

Here’s a peek at a Chapter head from said upcoming book though.

Warm up with Sailor Pen

This WAS a warm up sketch, but then I started to ink it
with a Japanese “Sailor Pen.” I bought mine at Kinokuniya
in Manhattan, but you can learn more about them here:

These pens are meant for writing and NOT art but that
never stopped me before. They seem best suited for cold
press as the nib gets easily clogged with any kind of loose
fibers and or tears in the paper. If I wanted to ink with this
pen, it would be best to ink on a vellum over lay. Something
I don’t personally enjoy. Like most Japanese pens, plastic
ink cartridges are how you “re-charge” these pens. Although,
I’m sure someone has found a way to refill the plastic
cartridge D.I.Y. style.

End of pen fetish…for today.
