Reliably Unreliable

URGH! So I just spent, like, 4 hours coloring page 1 of No More Parents and then I accidentally saved the reduced version of it. It should do for a rough print out, but not when it comes to actual printing. (mutters various inventive cuss words under breath, all directed at himself.)

Anyways, bitching aside, here it is:

I decided to stick to flat colors, no shading, just to speed things up (San Diego is less than a week away) but I did have to add a shadow in panel 2 because the script called for it, so now it's kind of inconsistent...

And here are pencils for Page 4 as well:

This page is a little sloppier than the previous 3, as I didn't spend as much time tightening the pencils and greying in the areas that will be black (in the interests of saving time, of course.) After finishing the rough pencils for page 5 today, I had to wonder how many more times I could draw Britney angry in a different way. I counted a total of 12 so far, some of them rather similar.

Here's hoping she cools off a bit.

So yeah, SD next week. Holy Canoli!

Slowly But Surely

Feels like no matter how much I get done, I should be getting more done. And faster. And more. You know what I mean?

I can't seem to get the hang of the Sheriff's face yet, which is funny, because it's basically mine.

Behold...le Backgrounde!

Here's page 2 of No More Parents. Get a load of all the stuff in that first panel!!! There's room for words, right?

Ju-Ly Peep Show

After making a mockery of sorts out of "Post-every-day-in-June", I've crawled out of my rock with some tantalizing treats for your rods and cones. . . well, at least some of them are tantalizing.


The Comic World exhibit is in full swing at the Creative Kids Museum and things are going great. If you've got a couple of rugrats, you should definitely drop by and say hello and make some comics.


I've been working on this all ages tale during my stay at the CKM and here's the first page of pencils so far:


And here are a few Drink n Draw pics to throw into the mix (the first one, this dumpy-looking, sad-sack Batman, well, it's an experiment gone horribly awry and I wasn't gonna post it, but Chris J demanded it be so. So here he is in all his glory...)

I'll keep updating with No more Parents as it gets completed. Till then, see ya!
