QUICK CROWD SCENE

A quick sketch of city sidewalk traffic. Just for fun.

MICHELE

Here’s a more straightforward portrait of Michele.

NEW PEN

Just a quick sketch to try out a new pen.

CONNECTIVE TISSUE

A few years back (in 2003, to be specific), I started a project called Connective Tissue, which was to be a free form, stream of consciousness, picture novel. I abandoned it after about 15 or so drawings, but waste not want not. Here are a few. I almost resurrected it last year in a revamped style, but once again lost steam (the drawings in my first blog here). Maybe someday I’ll really get serious with it, but then what would the fun be in that?


THE HELL OF IT

These are some prep drawings I did for a graphic novel that I’d proposed, tentatively titled, The Hell of It. I’ve been nursing the idea for many years, and it keeps evolving. I might just write it as a prose novel, as has been my wont of late. Maybe I’ll do an illustrated novel, like Mignola’s latest effort, Baltimore. We’ll see.




RAKOFF

Here’s a drawing I did recently of my acquaintance, the writer David Rakoff. His books are great (as are his articles, should you happen across his byline in some tony periodical).


RECESS PIECES THUMBNAILS, PART 1

Here’s the first of what might be a series of posts featuring some of my prep work. These are the first 20 pages of thumbnails for my graphic novel, Recess Pieces, which came out summer 2006.
