The Sludge Mansion Anthology
My good buddy Bryan Payne pitched me his concept for an ongoing graphic novel chronicling the 2 year rise and fall of our previous home known as Sludge Mansion. Its a massive collaborative mixed media story told from many perspectives (we lived with 9 people, with many more coming and going) that could be really great. What follows is the Prologue to the project. I hope it gets off the ground. (Click each page for readable full size.)
And here's a bit of process. I thumbnailed the basic story in one sitting pencil on paper. Scanned all them shits and moved some things around while filling in a few gaps digitally. I printed these contact sheets out, did a clean pencil pass on tracing paper then inked that with a tombo brush pen.

Digital Head Study
Gesture Drawing Tool? It does figures too. Go peep it.
Gesture Drawing Tool | Animals!
My friend Tuna Bora posted some studies done from a digital gesture drawing tool. It basically just sets a time limit for a slideshow of animal or human images. Its pretty intense and very addicting. I felt much more confident drawing a gesture from a static animal than those that are running around. You can actually take in what the hell they're doing! Highly recommended.

You may recognize some of these from the old blog. Some called it "a high school joke gone too far." They are right, but the old bird still has a special place in my little heart. Its still there for archival purposes. On with the new!
