Robot + Comics

I just stumbled across this old illustration for a digital comics company which I don’t think exists anymore.
I like the robot's hat and crazy-long collars.

Panel 83

The Pieces Project is an ongoing collaborative comic where each panel is provided by a different contributor. It holds an actual Guinness Book record for the most contributors to a comic book.

It is has exactly the sort of fractured, careening storyline one would expect from such a venture. This is my bit, Panel 83 of Volume Two. My intent was to provide a little breath of quiet amid the madness.

Word Bubbles

It's when you're lettering the words "Werewolf Piss" in Polish that occurs that to you that yours is not a normal career.

The Citadel

Just stumbled across this old drawing from about six years ago. Kinda fun.

Tome of Monster, pt. 6

Lady in Gray
The photo-textures in this one are decidedly un-Old School, and I actually first drew this with cross-hatching for all the grays, but then I saw that Tome of Monsters was probably going to be a Lulu book, and their printing doesn't seem to handle thin hatching very well, so I redrew it. I like this Lady a lot more that the previous one, who looked a little more boilerplate Fantasy.

From John Stater's Tome of Monsters.

Tome of Monsters, pt. 1

Soot Fairy

I recently drew some pictures for John Stater's Tome of Monsters. It's a rpg bestiary in the old school D&D vein. It's good stuff, highly recommended if, like me, you suffer from a crippling rpg obsession.

I grew up trying to draw like the guys in my old D&D books, so it was a lot of fun trying to make these drawings feel like they wouldn't be out of place next to an Erol Otus or a David Trampier.

December, 1997, pt. 4

I just noticed this old post, lurking in my drafts folder. These are sketches from Christmas Vacation in my first year of grad school. I filled a ton of pages during that break, some of which were previously blogged here, here, and here.

The drawings below were made at my maternal grandparents, both of who have since died. They are missed, dearly. The grandfather's clock shown below is now in my living room. The baby below is now driving a car and looking at colleges.
