Drawings & etc // I do Band Vs. Band Comix // Ask me anything  

aaaa, I wish I had this new comic page finished to post for all of you right now! I wish I’d had it yesterday. I really need to either find ways to speed up my process, or be better at having my time-management shit together, or both. Probably both.

(Please, nobody doubt that THIS COMIC IS MY BABY and I love working on it and want to give you thousands of pages.)

So, there were two of these mirror drawings from yesterday — finished up the second one while getting ready to go out this morning.

Messing around trying to get into a good illustration zone today / challenged myself to do something super symmetrical with mirroring.

Maybe I should post more miscellaneous sketchbook doodles. They’re kinda fun.

Look, I made a fan art! This is Turpentine from Band vs. Band by Kathleen Jacques, which is a totally awesome queer comic that you should be reading.
I listen to a LOT of female-fronted punk/metal/goth, so it’s not too surprising Turpentine would be one of my fave characters.

YES YES YES I LOVE THIS. Oh man, THE BLOOD DOLLS, and a skull tiara, and she’s so surly! Eeeeee! Thank you!
PS: all you queer comix fans: I would totally recommend following Dylan, if you aren’t already.

Cloudscape Comics presents: MEGA FAUNA!
HEY, EVERYONE: I’m in an anthology, and we’ve got a Kickstarter running right now!
I helped edit it, too. It’s a full-colour all-ages book of animal and monster stories, and my story is about a TINY GIRAFFE (see character art above — and I’ll post more previews before the Kickstarter’s done)

All the creators in the book are either local to Vancouver/B.C. or have some connection to it — and it is an INCREDIBLY GOOD lineup. We’ve got Nina Matsumoto and Ian Boothby who work on the official Simpsons and Futurama comics (and Nina did the sweet cover art), Sfé R. Monster of Eth’s Skin, Angela Melick of Wasted Talent, Molly “Jakface” Nemecek of Woo Hoo, Edison Yan the art director of Scribblenauts…good lord, how am I in a book with these people? What kind of magic life do I lead where I’ve been in a room with most of these people? That’s just scratching the surface - there are 25 stories. Go! Check it out!I also worked on the video, which has PET FOOTAGE.

I’d also suggest that the Cloudscape Comics tumblr is worth following, especially if you’re in B.C. or Canada — it’s going to be posting previews of the book art for the next little while.

(And I’ll also note that one of the higher tier rewards is a stack of local comics that includes a Band Vs. Band book — and it happens to be literally the only place online where that’s for sale right now, since I’m not putting my own store up to take more orders until I’m done shipping my Kickstarter from this spring)

Yaaaaaay: my red hair is back! The blonde was fun, but somehow it was never really me. I’m digging this a lot, and I think I mayyyy be doing my best job yet channeling my longtime beloved kindred spirit redhead icon Buffy’s Pal Willow.

(also: I’ve had this ribcage shirt for YEARS, and it’s one of those things that I’m probably just gonna keep wearing on my days off until it 100% crumbles to dust)

New page! This seems like a good time to link back to this chart I made last year about the setting of Band Vs. Band. In brief, if you don’t feel like clicking: it’s set in the present, not the past…but in a stylized alternate world where certain technology just didn’t advance. Physical format music is all records and tapes — no CDs, no computer stuff.
Also, just in case: did you miss the last page, which came out pretty late in the week (my fault)?


Reblog for daytime!

hellafabsatan asked: my favourite thing about your art style is how everyone has different facial structures. i tend to draw faces in this one specific way because it's easier, and i just never thought about it until i decided to do bvb fanart and arsenic's face just looked so utterly wrong, and that was the day i realized my default facial structure does not actually work for everyone. so yeah thanks for indirectly teaching me to draw better faces :)


Answer:

Oh, excellent! Drawing face variety is a lot of fun.
Arsenic’s face *is* actually the one that I have to think most about when I’m drawing — my most “default” kinds of faces that I think I tend to do most often are basically the opposite of his narrow, angular-ish, long nose face. He’s probably been erased and corrected more than any other BVB character.

Also: fanart=yes pleeeease!
