Another DA contest entry in progress. Mostly done, just need to make some design changes.

Thursday, September 16, 2010




Page 12. I re-did the entire background for these panels using a new trick I learned in "The DC Guide to Digital Comics.".
I used the paths tool to create the image of the building, changed the perspective a bit, and used stroke path to put it in the panel. It's an awesome method when you need to recreate the same background over and over. It really allowed me to put in a lot more detail then I would have time for by hand. Plus I'm saving all of these paths in master library files as I create them, so I can re-use them for other things in the future. That trick alone was worth the price of admission for the book Heh, which I guess was free since I bought it with a gift card my Mom got me on my birthday. Thanks Mom!).

Dead Kittens page 13 in progress.

Wednesday, September 1, 2010


I've been moving for the last few weeks, so I haven't made much progress on the comic. However, I couldn't pass up doing an entry for a contest with a top prize of 1000 bucks and some Scott Pilgrim swag. It was to design Ramona's 8th evil ex. If I win I'll use profits to fund the comic.

New cover design. Still need to add the title and such, but I think I like it.

Dead Kittens with lettering preview. (This is not final lettering, I just needed to test for space)

Thursday, July 29, 2010




Just sketching. Not at all Dead Kittens related.

Page 10 pencils.

I decided that since I had four layouts on hand that I would work pencils first before going back and inking. It's nice. I feel like the whole thing is moving more quickly.

6 and 7 with script



PAGE 6

Police cars dot the lawn of the expansive grounds of the Wellington mansion Their lights cast the walls in haunting hues. The first signs of dawn can be seen in the sky.

Inside, detective kite watches on as a CSI team works the crime scene. He looks completely out of place in his button up shirt, jean jacket, and cowboy boots. A pair of Aviator sunglasses hangs from the breast pocket of his jacket. Maxwell, the other detective assigned to the case stands at his side; pristine in a size double XL suit. Maxwell holds a cup of coffee. A pistol and badge are clipped to each man's belt.

Mid shot of Kite as he lights a cigarette from a pack of Nailcoffin brand cigarettes.

CSI

You can't smoke in here.

Kite

He doesn't mind... He's dead.

Maxwell wafts the air as he stairs at Kite who is in the middle of a long exhalation of smoke.

MAXWELL

Thought you smoked those faggy long cigarettes?

KITE

Trying to quit... and if you use that word again I'll shoot you. It's offensive.




Page 7

Maxwell motions towards the corpse. Two of the CSI men kneel by the corpse. one holds a camera up in front of him.

MAXWELL

Fine. Maid discovered the body. She's gone a tad wonky.

The second CSI approaches the two men. He's holding a clipboard that he studies as he speaks.

KITE

What do we have?

CSI

Three to the head, two to the chest. Good sized gun by whats left of him. You know who this guy is?

Close on Kite as he ticks off what he knows on his fingers. He points at his ring finger.

KITE

Samuel Wellington? C.E.O. of the Snapp-E-Freeze refrigeration company. Investor in about every major start up in Seattle, including Ahab's...

Kite motions to Maxwell's coffee as he continues. Maxwell stairs at the cup.

KITE

... Probably the most important man to hold a standing res at Canlis.

Kite kneels next to the body. Maxwell and the CSI hover behind him.

KITE

You guys finished here?

CSI

Like Shyamalan's career.

Tight on Kite and Maxwell as Kite dips one finger into the black substance with a grimace. Maxwell is now kneeling next to him.

KITE

You thinking what I am?

MAXWELL

Bit over the top for a professional, isn't it?

KITE

Depends on what was paid for.

Stay tuned for more pages with script excerpts.

Thursday, July 22, 2010






Pages eight and nine. Not completely finished, but getting close to having finished pencils. I decided to do the pencils for both pages before moving to inks.

Wednesday, July 14, 2010



Finished cover inks.



More work done on the cover.

You know you've been ask to accomplish too much in too little time and work when you bleed through your sock. Ouch.

Tuesday, July 13, 2010


Still working with the cover design. Headed toward a more pop art feel to vibe more with what the colorist (Jakob Darq) will do with it.


On a personal note... If you ever walk into a convenience store and see that it is nice and clean, as well as well stocked, an there is only one employee on, realize that that employee works to keep it that way... a lot. If said employee is standing behind the counter eagerly awaiting your arrival it is not because he/she has nothing better to do. It's because he/she is

A) providing excellent customer service by making sure you do not have to wait when you reach the counter...

B) making sure you don't stuff your pockets full of Skittles and Ho-ho's (before you say, "but I'm wearing a suit and tie!" yeah, they steal too... Butt holes)

So, if you then proceed to spend the next fifteen plus minutes talking on the phone, re-acquainting yourself with an old friend, scratching lottery tickets, or staring at the chip display to decide between crunchy or puffy cheet-os, you are probably a douche hammer.

If there is more then one employee on staff all bets are off.

Cover Sketch.

Gave the dog a hose bath today, now he's standing in front of the fan to dry himself. Good old fashioned summer stuff.

Friday, July 2, 2010


Page seven, pretty much done.

Thursday, July 1, 2010



Page 7 in progress. Hate panel one, so I'm redoing it. I also might still need to correct a few other things. Nearly done though.



Another quick practice piece .

Wednesday, June 30, 2010



Just a few things I did today to work on my use of black and white. Both are from reference. Page 7 is nearly done, and then I have a few corrections on page 6 before I move forward.

Sunday, June 27, 2010

Page 7 WIP. I figured I would start posting my work in progress stuff again. This is the beginning stages of page seven.

Wednesday, June 23, 2010


Page 6, completed. I decided to really push myself towards a more noir style (which had been my intention from the beginning until I realized I was terrified of shadows). I'm going to have to go back when all is said and done to add more shadows to earlier pages, but I think it's worth it.

Thursday, June 3, 2010


Page the fifth. This one took, longer because I had to spend a lot of time this week working on my Jeep, which got broken into a while back.

Saturday, May 29, 2010


Sketch I'm trying to find time to work on for a friend. In progress, obviously.

Page 4- Layouts by Howard Simpson.

Thursday, May 13, 2010



Haven't posted in a while. I have a new layout artist. His name is Howard Simpson and you can check out his web page here, http://abbadabba.com/. That being the case I've started over on sequential pages. I'm posting the page 2 and three works in progress today.

Page 2 progress. This is going a bit slow, but I'm happy with the results.

Thursday, February 18, 2010


Progress on page 2. I wanted to finish 2 before inking 1 so that I could get at least 1 page of actual sequentials done. I felt like it was crossing a hurdle.
