DEMON SKETCHES FOR THE HELL OF IT

Still working up some sketches to help sell my Hell GN. Going to work on some more, but thought I’d share these of some demon types.

BELATED BALTIMORE COMIC-CON CABOOSE

Oops. Found this as an unposted draft, so this is my final post for 2009. I was a guest of the Baltimore Comic-Con (thanks, Marc Nathan!). I manned my table and signed, sold and sketched for two days. One of the attendees commissioned me to draw “a big butt girl,” and this was the result. I like the way it came out, so let’s end the year on a big, shapely, butt. Happy New Year, everyone!

THE HELL OF IT

These might be the final sketches of 2009. Maybe not, but they’re probably the final ones I’ll post this year. These are character design sketches for the book I want to do set in Hell. I am hoping to finally find a home for this baby in 2010. I’ve wanted to do this story for many years, though its earlier outlines were quite different. The plot has finally gelled, so let’s hope that I finally set it to paper soon.

Culled…

This week I’ve been going over the final guts of Connective Tissue with the designer (Jacob Covey) at Fantagraphics. He’s doing a great job and the book’s going to look terrific. Seeing all the art put into a layout with the text highlighted that a couple of the drawings were superfluous, so I cut them and did new ones for the book. I liked the drawings I cut, but they didn’t make the grade. Anyway, waste not want not, here they are.


Girls and Demons

Two great tastes that taste great together. Or something like that. I love drawing this stuff. Maybe I’m a bad person.

Michele, My Belle…

Sorry about the gap between posts. I’ve been bedeviled by my computers since early December. Here’s a drawing of my wife, Michele, when she was very sleepy.


LOVECRAFT LOVE

It was that or “Tentaclehead”. I don’t know what to call these entries sometimes and I haven’t really titled this drawing. I just hit the paper with the pencil and this emerged, no game plan, no forethought. It just happened. Go figure. But I like it.

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.
