Post Super Summer ComiCon update

Hey Everybody!

It’s been awhile since I’ve had time to sit down and do a blog update so there’s going to be a lot of stuff in this one. Last weekend Kris and I were at the Super Summer ComiCon in Windsor and it was a great time! Thanks again to everyone who came out to check out our stuff and chat, we will be doing a few more cons very soon so we will start talking about those soon.

So a lot of the dailies lately have been Dragon Ball themed because I was re-watching the series in preparation of Dragon Ball Super. Also there is a Ninten drawing because of the announcement and release of Earthbound Beginnings.

Also since I’ve been going into ComiCon season I wanted to start doing some original pieces (one of a kind rather than prints) so I went out and bought some 140lb watercolour paper and started doing these.

I’m not too sure if people will be into them but I’m going to be doing a bunch between now and Fan Expo so if you have any ideas about characters you might want to see let me know.

As I mentioned earlier we had a great time at the Super Summer ComiCon in Windsor and we can’t wait for the next one!

The album suggestion for this week is one of my all time favourites, Say Anything – Is a Real Boy.

The Day of the Blog

Hey Everybody!

It’s been a pretty busy week for me but here are the sketch dailies from this week.

IMG_0707IMG_0702 IMG_0704  IMG_0709 IMG_0711 IMG_0713 IMG_0715

There’s a lot of Space Boy stuff amongst these sketches as I’ve been trying to work out a few concepts for some upcoming stuff. I will be doing a convention in Windsor on July 5th so I’m going to try to have a few new cool things available.

Album suggestion this week is Two Tongues (Self titled). Two Tongues is a super group with members of Say Anything and Saves the Day, and it’s a good time.

Also last Sunday I went sketching with https://www.facebook.com/PeiweiLiArts, it was a good sketch jam at Silver Snail (Black Canary is their coffee shop)

Animal Crossing Dailies

Hey everybody!

Hope everyone has had a good week. If you don’t follow me on social media you may have missed out on the podcast post on Sunday www.comics-that-exist.com/podcast you can check it out in its temporary home there. The podcast is a work in progress so any feedback would be appreciated.

For the month of may I’m doing a little Animal Crossing challenge which is pretty open to one Animal Crossing themed piece a day, I’ve been sticking to villagers so far.

Also it was May the 4th, so I watched the 2d Clone Wars series and did a doodle of Durge, a super cool bounty hunter.

I also have been trying to work on story clarity so I gave a shot at retelling A New Hope without words, still a lot of work in the clarity department but here it is.

Last but not least, this week was the wrap party for Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, a show I worked on for the last year. It was a pretty great get together and they gave us these awesome coffee mugs.
