Black Magic and a Princeton 20/0

When I have to do detailed line work like this:


There's nothing better than a bottle of Higgins Black Magic waterproof ink and a 20/0 Princeton liner:


And that is all I have to say about that.

Per & Silvanus Progress

This is getting close to finished.

Per Gjenganger stumbles upon Silvanus Passerio summoning a cicada swarm.

Pieces like this always start out with a very loose idea -- something from a rough sketch, a previous drawing or an incomplete vision -- and then take on lives of their own, and what could have been a one-off character ends up with an identity. So with these two.

CHE LA Cityscape

Oof.

I have such admiration for artists like Geoff Darrow and Katsuhiro Otomo. I can draw people all day, but cityscapes wipe me out. Hard Boiled is one of my favorite graphic novels, but I have to wonder what kind of mental state it takes for a dude to spend that much time drawing meticulous buildings and cars. I'd love to see Darrow's studio or watch him work.

Here's a panel I was working on today, from CHE LA, featuring a ramshackle future downtown Los Angeles.



Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go make bacon tacos and watch Dust to Glory with my lady.

GBTW

New Year's Day I woke up next to a beautiful lady, in a tent, on a beach, south of Loreto, BCS, Mexico.

Now I'm back in Salt Lake and back to work.
