A series of patterns based on a key ingredient of a baked good. All hand drawn and fun to make. Color palette taken from dessert in question but shifted to create uniformity.

Big holiday gift for my girlfriend this year was my own rendition of a movie poster for Jacques Demy’s lovely Umbrellas of Cherbourg. Really pleased with how it came out and made me work really big - final was 27x40 inches. Also really forced me to come up with a script I liked and could duplicate across several signatures. Liked it so much I hope that jaggedy cursive can be my own.
The holiday card this year, featuring our real-life clothes and seemingly fake dog.
Doing some hand-drawn animation test stuff and decided to use some of my favorite characters. Here's Abe having a spotlight swung onto him, getting spooked, and getting pretty upset. Here's a test animation that did not turn out the way I was planning - this one's called Melty Abe:
Reading the second installment of Aurora West's story in the Battling Boy universe. Love the art and monster-world. My only gripe (more a disappointment) is the printing quality. Kinda cruddy newsprint makes the greyscale coloring pretty muddy. Wanted to draw Aurora taking on her nemesis baddy Coil (in that sweet Paul Pope color).
Really enjoyed the first issue of All-New Wolverine in which Laura Kinney (X-23) takes up the mantle of Wolverine. She was a fun addition to the original crew in All-New X-Men, bringing 'oh so tough' I've been missing with no Logan. Hope it keeps up! Felt like drawing her gearing up into that classic uni.
Pupil #2: The Snake from Chang Cheh’s (much more) story-driven martial arts film Five Deadly Venoms. One hand represents the snake’s head, the other the tail. Trying to keep the warmup game going.
Warmup of our dog Frankie.
Morning warmup today of Chia-Hui Liu in The 36th Chamber of Shaolin. More Photoshop coloring technique practice - just so many things to do in there.
