The future's not ours to see

I've been sketching a lot this summer; I'm pleased with myself for continuing to find the time to fill pages in my sketchbooks. My sketchbooks are a place I can really cut loose, and I see improvement in my comic work after periods where I've been sketching a lot.
Here are some sketchbook pages I just scanned in:

If they die I'll still remember you

Jeez, where have I been?  Well, I'm still hard at work on the WPR consciousness comic (Meet Your Mind) and another unannounced project, I attended a wedding and a concert this weekend, and I cohosted a house warming party last week.  I'm trying to wrap up a lot of things before September 14, because I'm going to Washington D.C. for SPX and to visit my friend Mary, and I would LOVE to go with a clear conscience!

Pink Martini at the Oregon Zoo!  This is the second time I've gone to see them at the zoo with my friend Kayla.  We love it!

I just came home from my last French class of the summer course.  My mom and I have been studying for a year and a half, and are on track to finish all of the 200-level courses offered at our school before our France trip next year.

French + Pink Martini = the song I listened to pretty much nonstop this weekend

Some recent sketches:

 I don't mean to be a tease with the pixelation--it's just around sketches that give away a project I'm working on, and some sketches that are just dumb/bad.

I traced over these guys digitally from that last sketch.  I really like these kinds of digital coloring styles (more, more, more, more, more) and I'm inspired to experiment a bit, although it's been a bit painful to compare myself to what I'm trying to imitate.  C'est la vie!

Where is my mind?

I am working on an education comic project for Wisconsin Public Radio right now.  Check out their Kickstarter, won't you?  They have been wonderful to work with and I would really like to see them reach their fundraising goal.  I love the $1000 reward--sending 200 copies of the comic to a school of your choice!  Fantastic!

Here are a bunch of sketches from August:

The Olympics rule my life right now.
