Every shiny toy that at first brings you joy

Happy Halloween!!!

"Beep boop, beep boop!"
"This was her favorite candy bar. Because you sent her away, there's more for you."
"The wilderness must be explored! KAW, KAW, RARRRRR!"
"Ha. Goggles."

It's not for you to know or for you to even wonder

I've been a-hankering to do some Utena fan art. Today was finally the day, as I finished freelance stuff early! :D

Some other chicken-scratch pose ideas:

Hnnn, I can't wait to get back to Over the Surface...! Chapter 3 has been thumbnailed for almost a month, but I can't start pencils until Between Gears is done (for my own sanity).

Oh, the things I draw before sleep. So weird.

Change their minds and change the world

So, how much did I love Wonder Woman Day?

It was AWESOME, and I didn't even walk around or bid on things! Some quality people at that event. Quality conversations were had. Kudos to all involved for putting on a great day of fun and awareness. Early estimates put $ raised in Portland at $22,000!!!!!

Some nice people let me photograph them with things that I drew:

(Thanks to Justin Zimmerman for scanning this!)

My Eve for this Eve-themed sketchbook turned out pretty evil-looking! Like she knew exactly what she was doing. :P

There was a team at Excalibur filming for this documentary. Jen Stuller won one of my art pieces in the auction, and I got to meet her and hear about the project. Very cool; I want to see the finished film!!

I also got to catch up with a comic-nerd-comrade from UO and do a sound bite for the new website NerdStock Comics!

And sidebar -- Oh em gee, this is fantastic:

I can be myself, how 'bout you?

Here's another new art piece--an original character I'm developing for the same story as this character.

Also, a commission of David Tennant as Doctor Who:

A prize in every pack

You've still got a couple of days to get a piece of my original art on the cheap, and support a great cause while you're at it! Wonder Woman Day bidding goes on online until Saturday at midnight, and continues live at Excalibur Comics on Sunday. There are currently no bids on my grayscale piece, and the watercolor piece is going for $15.

I feel the break

Faith fan art, from Graduation Day part 1, the line starting with, "Look at you..." (around 6:30 in this video). I loved that confrontation!

There will be colors eventually.

Whose house are you haunting tonight?

Wonder Woman Day 5 Signing!

The poster has just been released for Wonder Woman Day (Sunday, October 24). I will be signing and sketching from 12-6! Come on down!! :D

I believe that the free print for my station will be the piece that I donated last year:

And do remember to bid on pieces if you can! There are some GORGEOUS donations...I love the ones from Terry Blas, Veronica Hebard, and Conley Smith.

I have 2 pieces in the auction:

This is how you know that it's time to put the sketchbook away:

Thanks for reading! :D I'll try to remember which sketches I omitted and post them later.

NYC Sketchbook part 2/3

Here's part 2 of 3 of what I drew this weekend: Saturday and Sunday in NYC.

Girl waiting for the bus with an interesting haircut and outfit. Also, notes for possible travel comics:

Hanging out with Nico goes hand in hand with lots of miscommunication shenanigans :P

Trying to draw Heather at a cafe near the Met:

This is a terrible drawing...I'm not good at drawing naked 13-year-olds, SORRY.

Starbucks? 8D; She was scary. I liked her.

Those NYC ladies like the half-shaved haircut! I'm a fan.

People at NYCC:

Oh my God, this girl. In the bow dress. The most beautiful person I have EVER SEEN. It was like a fashion magazine model come to life!

NYC Sketchbook part 1/3

Here's part 1 of 3 of what I drew this weekend: Thursday and the journey to NYC.

I had to pull a couple of pages because they have spoilers or are from unannounced projects :(

I loooove the Ultimate Spiderman relaunch characer designs. Mary Jane and Gwen are super fun to draw:
