Pages from the rainy city
Jump to the end for some newer work!
but feel free to browse through the time capsule that is this sketchbook thread,
some old stuff i dont hate yet throughout!
A little update of where I'm at now
Finished school, living in Victoria BC freelancing
(mostly design right now but hoping to update my portfolio and move into the illustrative arts a little more. Not that i don't love design, i do, but I genuinely want to draw for a living, not just conceptually.)
I have a great studio, where i can work on a variety of projects simultaneously, and a fantastic circle of artists animators and illustrators that i hang with here and get tons of inspiration from (maybe thats why I've been neglecting the online community?)
anyways, here's a little bit of what I've been up to lately!
Lots of gouache, just getting into it again, and I'm loving it for so many reasons!
Expect lots more of that, some cut paper and marker work from a street art phase i went through earlier this year with wheatpasting, and some digital work.
(I'm fairly behind in my digital skills, i still have the same tablet from when i was 17,
its a relic and it only has a 4x6 working area, but it works right?)
So the last couple are from the past few days, and everything before that is kind of a selection from the past year or so..
I'll try and upload more frequently so i don't have to do as many of these retrospective posts.

Great start! Your drawings have a huge graphic art vibe, I love it. The poses and ways you coordinate everything on the page has comic books all over it. Maybe you should look into doing pencils in that field! You'd do great.

Wow - really good work!
You'd make a good comic book artist and I love the way you can fill the page with pencil detail that seems clean and well placed without clutter - Don't know if I can doodle like that - too impatient

The scythe girl and the last one are awesome. Please do venture into coloring, trying to conserve the beauty of your pencil work. I'm eager to see your sketchbook evolve.

Gah! comments, thanks guys..such good feedback!
as far as becoming a comic book artist yeah definitely a dream job of mine, i'v been working on a graphic novel of my own this past year, its just in its conceptual stages right now, working out the story, characters and environments but its definitely my brainchild...
its going really slow though because of work and school
hopefully over the summer i can get some more done
as far as posting more, and more color work thats easy enough
coming right up!
the first one is from this last week
and the rest are from school. all the paintings are in oil (the second to last is a self portrait) and the third is just a random pen sketch.
*sorry the paintings scanned really dark..
thanks for checkin it out!
