Black Eye Beastie

I guess even lippy demons get smacked in the eye, sometimes!

This little ditty came from my morning warm-up sketches, before diving into a stack of comic page layouts. Up and down, and one and two, and sketch and paint!

Out of the Brimstone

This is a sketch I started, literally, years ago. I think I was doodling it during a calm moment during a comic convention. Anyway, I finished it up, scanned it, and thought I'd share it with you fine folks on the Interwebs.

Crosland + Artsprojekt = HELL YES!

Andy Howell and the amazing folks behind Artsprojekt and invited me out to the Thread show in San Francisco, this weekend. It was an amazing gathering of fashion designers, artists, and creative enthusiasts. The Artsprojekt booth was a massive combination of all that stuff, complete with art prints, apparel, assorted merch, and original artwork. They also had live art going on all weekend long. On Sunday, I rolled through and knocked out the beastly piece up above. Rawr!

To see lots more photos from the weekend, peep the Artsprojekt blog, The Projekt. Enjoy!
