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.

Everybody have a good week!

Gotta Catch Um All (Finale)

Hey Everybody!

Sorry for no post last Saturday, Kris and I were at Toronto Comicon. Thanks to everybody who swung by our booth and checked out our stuff. We had a great time and met a ton of cool people, but more on that later.

As you all know I’ve been slowly working through the original 151 Pokemon as daily doodles, and have finally come to the end. I want to say thanks to everyone who stuck around for the whole process and supported the pieces. So here it goes…

Hope you enjoyed those!

Now for Comicon goodness.

Above is a picture of our booth, look at how fancy it is. We had a great time meeting new and exciting folk and we will be at Fan Expo Toronto this summer (more information to come in the future) as well as some other cons.

I did a bunch of Yoshi prints, because Yoshi is rad.

One thing I always like to do at conventions is check out the other artists work in artist alley, so when I get a chance to get away from the table I go out into the wilds and buy stuff.

Lots of cool zines and comics this year as well as some postcards and an original sketch of Hellboy that is super cool. I also came across some really cool resin sculptures, which I will be painting up sometime in the future.

The convention was great but when I got home I immediately got sick, which I suppose is part of being around a ton of people. But the next day I received a cool package in the mail from one of my favourite artists Jake Parker.

The two books are “Inktober” and his newest art book “Drawings II”. Both are amazing books that you should definitely check out.

Also last week I wrapped up on the show I`ve been working on for the last year, Daniel Tiger`s Neighborhood. It was a great experience and gave me the opportunity to learn and work with a lot of super amazing people. I start my next project next week but just wanted to take a second to let you know what I`ve been up to.

Thanks for everybody who stuck it through this long winded post. See you all next week!

Gotta Sketch Um All Part 6 (And Comicon News)

Hey Everybody,

As I’ve mentioned briefly in previous posts Kris and I will be at Toronto Comicon this weekend (March 20-22) in Artist Alley booth A157.

Look at this handy map in case you’re having trouble navigating through the sea of people.

And then there is Pokemon daily doodles, slowly but surely reaching the end.

It will probably take another couple weeks before I get them done and then the dailies will switch to different subject matter.

Hope to see everybody at Comicon! There will be at least one more post about that before then showing some of the new prints we’ll have available.

Gotta Sketch Um All Part 4

Hey Everybody!

Hope you all had a good week. This post will be another daily doodle sketch round-up. I was slightly busy at work with additional projects taking up most of my evenings but here are the doodles from the week!

Slowly but surely making it through these Pokemon doodles, I’ve been enjoying the ride but can’t wait to finish and get back to other subject matter. Also now that I’ve started using these copic markers I’ve been wanting to do a lot more traditional colour pieces so I’ve started gathering more.

And then on the not art side I finally received my Mega Man Amiibo, I didn’t want to support/deal with scalpers so I just ordered a japanese version. Worth it.

So I guess that’s the weekend round up. Kris and I will be doing Comicon Toronto March 20-22, more info on that and our new products to come.

Have a good one!

Gotta Sketch Um All Part 3

Hey Everybody!

It’s been a crazy week of pokemon sketching and animation learning goodness. First off here are the Pokemon doodles from this week. Half way through the week I went out an purchased some Copic Markers as I was not happy with the previous markers showing my brush strokes. I ended up liking the Copic’s a lot and thing I will be working with them a lot more in the future.

So those are the pokemon for this week, as well as the Copics I picked up. I also got a cool package of records from Spartan Records.

Gotta Sketch Um All Part 2

Hey Everybody,

The Daily Doodles continue this week with a bunch of new Pokemon, also I finished a sketchbook and moved on to another. For the first time in my life I’m actually finishing sketchbooks.

About half way through the week I discovered a pack of grayscale markers I had so I decided to give those a shot.

Hopefully you enjoy these doodles.
