I’ve been sketching all these little trolls and fairies that will populate the third act of my upcoming comic, The Bear King. Last week, I made a forest guardian that was grass-themed, so this week, I thought I’d make one that was tree-themed. I sketched this at the park with pencil and a Pentel Color Brush.
I bought a little travel watercolor set last week and made a color version of my Elderly Forest Guardian from last week.
I sketched this little Forest Guardian inspired by photography series by Karoline Hjorth’s body of work, Eyes As Big As Plates.
This is a page from my latest little comic Levitating Nuns which is available for purchase in my storenvy store.
Happy birthday to Max Fleischer. To celebrate, I made a watercolor painting of one of the comic strip characters he brought to life, Popeye the sailor.
For those of you reading along since 2003, you may remember that I was once involved in music. The earliest band I was in was called The Walter Boyd Band, which was a one-man-band (me) with another person’s name. (Kinda like Jethro Tull). I was the only one who understood my own joke, but “we” did put out one album.
Here’s the cover I made in 2008 for an attempt a 5 year anniversary reissue.
A sketch of Princess Mononoke made with a Pentel Color Brush Pen and crappy colored pencils from my daughters’ art supply box.
While I was teaching a comic book class for Upper Elementary and Middle School students, I doodled some little gags about levitating nuns. I turned it into this little book which is now available in my store for $4.00.
I was always intrigued by the imagery of Baba Yaga’s hut. I started playing with it a bit one day in my sketchbook. I kept adding layers of tracing paper to the sketch and refining the image.
Finally, I took the top layer and put it on a light box. I inked it on a sheet of bristol board.
The image still seemed lacking, so I brought it into Photoshop and added layers of creepy tree branches to act as a frame of sorts.
