Inktober 2021.

Inktober is an online art project where you get a drawing prompt every day all October long.

This year the only thing I wanted to work on was crosshatching. Didn’t do it all the time, but threw it in there as often as I could/remembered to.

You can definitely tell which drawings I did at home and which I did at work on my lunch break. And which days I was totally out of creative energy. Definitely different levels of effort…

Ants and birds were oddly a reoccurring theme too. Not sure why.

15th Fan Art!

Ahh I love this rad Life drawing by Emmanuel Filteau! It’s so cool seeing Life drawn completely in someone else’s style; always seems so oddly familiar and new at the same time.

Make sure you follow Emmanuel on Instagram @ink_orporate and @Inkorporate on Twitter, and don’t forget to pick up his comics!

The War On Colouring.

So what happened to all the colours? Why only the one colour? 

Listen, I don’t like colouring and I’m pretty terrible at it. Having an eye for colour is like having an ear for music: either you have it or you don’t, and I don’t. 

I’ve never really been satisfied with my colouring and I was failing trying to achieve a certain look. Everything new I was trying just wasn’t working out and was taking way too long, so it’s time to wring my brain out and start fresh!

Wolverine Homage!

Here’s a drawing I did for my friend Dane! It’s an homage to the Wolverine #1 cover by John Buscema (being that Dane’s favourite comic character is Wolverine.)

I printed a black and white picture of the original cover,  lightboxed the overall characters, and then did my own character designs and embellishments.

And look: Dane framed it! I guess he liked it.
