"Dawn After Dark" is a miniseries I drew for Hellhound Media. The Kickstarter for the first issue has funded, so it is coming out! There are still a few weeks left and some stretch goals to hit.
Here's a link to the campaign:
I got the idea for this one driving by a local church with a sign posted outside that read "Free trip to Heaven, details inside". I mixed that in with a line from a song Albert King did- "Everybody wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to die". With that, I came up with this twisted little story...
This one was drawn and lettered by hand, except for the title and the gray tones, which were done digitally.
This is a recently finished story, playing with one inconsistency found in many time travel stories. My hand-lettering is not great, but I'll only improve if I keep doing it. This was mostly drawn by hand, the star field was dropped in digitally, and I let the computer draw the chain-link fence. Hope you enjoy it!
This is a digital painting I did in Affinity Designer. To the right is the pencil drawing I started with.
A small selection of what popped up in a recent sketchbook. Some of these will turn into characters, comics, and finished illustrations...
The pencils to two of the five pages of a new story I'm working on...
This is a personal piece I recently finished. It's loosely based on a comic book I drew as a teenager. That book was pretty bad, but this depicts the one interesting scene.
This is a quirky, and kind of dark, five-page story I came up with. It's all drawn, and readable, but I'm still working on inking and coloring the pages. This was all drawn on Bristol board, and hand lettered.
These are two recent illustrations, each a potential part of a larger story. These were drawn by hand in pen and ink, colored in Affinity Designer.
A new drawing of Cera, the star of my comic series. This is pen & ink with digital color.
A novel I helped illustrate has just been published! This was a very interesting and involving process as I had to research and recreate the look of the ancient Roman Empire. Altogether 28 pen & ink illustrations were created for the book. I've posted a gallery below of some of the stages of the development of the images.
Check out the novel itself here!
This is some of my progress on the ninth issue of "In The Shadow Of The Wasteland". I'm returning to hand lettering with this story. I know lettering by hand is the skill I'm weakest at, but I imagine my best shot at getting better at it is to simply keep doing it.
