Sketched at figure drawing, inked and colored at home, with some extra figure drawers from my sketchbook added in for good measure. For an upcoming figure drawing gallery show.

"I don’t understand my feelings. Sometimes I feel sad and I don’t know why. Then sometimes I feel silly, and I don’t know why either. Now I feel ‘wow,’ because this is my very first interview."

Spoken like a future cartoonist.

Talking with Zack Soto and Ryan Pequin on Twitter last night about shoplifting experiences reminded me of this comic I did wayyy back in 2011 as a backup for “Good Ol’” Mike Holmes’ book True Stories, which you can buy here if you haven’t already. I have a copy and it’s fantastic—don’t judge the book by this lowly strip. Mike is amazing and beautiful and supple as a teenage ballerina.
Oh! And also I’m on Twitter, did you know that? It’s true, dumdums.

FIGURE DRAWERS.
Another figure drawing sketch, inked at home and splashed with acrylic ink. Because they’re worth it AND it’s Maybelline.

Ten new pen sketches in the SubSubShop.

All of these sketches were drawn with a set of Pilot Hi-Tec-C pens. The ink *usually* flows well and the colors are bright (and hard to scan perfectly :/ ). The confidence of the ink flow and the boldness of the colors kept my hand moving on the page and reignited a mark-making thrill in me for a bit.

Most of these sketches were drawn in a blank book/calendar/catalog that I acquired from L’employe du Moi. The cover image is by Sacha Goerg. A couple of the pages were lined, some had a dot grid and others are blank. One page has a calendar on the back (no extra charge). The staples were removed from the book and the page spreads were (carefully) torn in half.

yes yes yes say yes to love yes yes yes

PLAID MAN.
Another sketch from figure drawing, fleshed out a little at home. There are a few people at figure drawing I draw over and over because their faces are much much cooler than the people around them. This guy is near the top of that list, although I forget his name.

THE MAN WHO GREW HIS BEARD. 
Gallery Twenty-Two, the local Charlotte bar/gallery where I go to figure drawing sessions every Monday—often the only time I spend away from my drawing table all week—is having a group show based around the figure drawing sessions next month. I’ve been working on a big involved dinosaur thing for the last several months, some hints of which you can see on my Instagram where I’ve been posting progress pictures, and so I don’t have much time to develop finished works for the gallery show. Instead I’ve been doing rough drawings in the gallery, then bringing them home and inking them as warmups before my regular work. 
It’s been one of my favorite drawing experiences of the last year or so. While life drawing can often be about catching nuances of light and tone and dimension, cartooning is often about removing details. Combining those two has been really instructive, not to mention pleasant.

SKETCHBOOK 07 - Pages 32-33
The dumpster behind where I used to work, and a bird from someone’s Tumblr, and a bunch of little faces that I was trying to remember from a wedding we’d gone to the night before. 
Sketchbook measures 6” x 7.5” and was handmade by the great Joe Lambert.
