Started working on Richmond Monuments again.

Below are the pencils, inks and final for a web comic that I've been doing for awhile. I took a bit of a hiatus and am now back on it. (Click images to enlarge.)

This let's you see some of the decisions that I make while doing the pencils and inks. You also get to see see the smudging of my inked line work that was cleaned up digitally.

Trying to wrap up this story arc. It's been my second adventure in the comics medium and I've learned a lot during the process. You can find more here: www.richmondmonuments.com or start at the beginning here.


New Work:Joint Chiefs of Math and 1994! Poster

Below is a snapshot of my process making an Illustrative poster. (Click images to enlarge)

 The first image exhibits my thumbnail process figuring out the gesture, composition etc. You can see some notation on the rule of thirds  and line of action. Typically I also have word lists and take notes on semiotics & metaphors. This project was less about communicating an idea and more about captivating the audience into reading the info. 

The second image is a pencil drawing where I develop just enough information for me to begining inking. This saves on time. 

Next the inking stage you might notice that there are a few details still missing. I often do black-blocks, textures and minor details digitally. The graffiti piece on the bottom right was recreated using a digital tablet. It was a heck of a lot of fun too. 

Finally the finished piece with type. I left a lot of negative space at the top of the poster to place the text. I don't often have an idea in mind for it's layout because the illustration typically changes so much during the process.

I plan on potentially turing this into a skate deck and art print without the text.

Tomorrow Richmond Zine Fest 2013

I will be tabling at the Richmond Zine Fest with some members from our "Comics Church," a Sunday morning comic creator meet-up. The artists attending zine Fest with me include: Jared Cullum, Mark Luetke, and Anne-Marie Wonder

Most of my work will be 50% off. So $5/$10 shirts. $5 screen printed posters and discounts on comics and skate decks.

The fest is tomorrow, October 5th between 11-6 at the Gay Community Center of Richmond (GCCR) 1407 Sherwood Ave Richmond, VA

Please stop by and say hello.


"The Richmond Zine Fest is an annual event at which local and national (and perhaps even international if we’re so lucky) zine-makers can gather to sell and trade their zines and network with other people in the zine community. The zine fest is not just for zine creators and distros.  It’s an open event for all ages with tablers selling zines as well as other DIY items, informative and fun workshops throughout the afternoon, and good times, food  and conversation in general.  This event happens every Fall–typically during the month of October.
The Richmond Zine Fest has been going strong in Richmond, VA, since 2007."
