Hey pals. I’m gonna make a very easygoing attempt at Inktober this year — meaning I won’t beat myself up
when, inevitably if I get too busy with other work. Gonna cheat and start it off with these dramatic pages from my comics class homework, since they do technically involve ink and I did technically make them (very, very early) today.
Hi everyone! My comic has launched today! It has its own website where it will be updating regularly, three times a week (thanks to my bro, who actually understands how computers work):
The (slightly) revised first five pages are already up on the site, as well as page 6! I’ve also created a tumblr blog for the comic if you would like to keep track of updates through your dashboard. It will also have… whatever it happens to have, art and the like.
I’m very excited (and nervous) to finally be sharing my first personal comic online with all of the people who have been kind enough to follow my art for so long. This comic has been in production since I wrote the script last December and started making pages in May, but I’ve had the idea for it for over a year and a half.
I’d really like to say a big thank you for any likes, or reblogs, or general niceness and support, since I can’t thank everyone individually! I really hope you will enjoy reading the comic as much as I enjoy making it.
The Girl Who Flew Away is a graphic novel in progress set in 1976 and partly in 1926, following twenty-something secretary, Greer Johnson. Through an affair with her boss, she becomes pregnant and is sent to stay with his friends for the duration in Key West, Florida. There, she begins to recollect her past and to dream about a little girl she’s never seen before named Eugenie. Meanwhile, she makes friends with a gardener missing his family and battles with her temporary caretakers.
I posted this a whole year ago, wow! I’ve updated the pages a little, updated the site a little… I’m also working on a new book that will be pages 1-145. It’d be neat to do a Kickstarter, but it will probably just be another lulu.com thing. : )
Thanks for reading this long everybody, and if you like the comic I’d love if you could take a moment and share it with others!
It’d be awesome if you could help me get this post to reach 2,000 notes. Maybe I’ll share a special drawing!
Look at my amazing friend’s amazing comic! Look at it
Illustration assignment; for an article about the rise of childhood obesity in China.
Sleeping Beauty sketch. Ink and watercolor.
Joan of Arc sketch
Here are a bunch of sketches about a thing, which I am stealthily posting in the nighttime.
Have you ever tried to draw a crystal geode? That’s an interesting thing to do.
Here is a painting I just finished for my cool sister’s birthday (which was in May *cough*). Also some people mailed us a box of antler bits for our dogs to chew on, and I sketched a cool-looking antler cross section. I absolutely adore this Sienna ink!
Illustration for an assignment about atheists and stuff. Pen drawing, ink wash and digital.
There are some Obscure Cameos in this picture. Some of them… are definitely not atheists, but they aren’t conspicuous enough to be an issue?
A needle-felted portrait of great Ringling teacher Gary Barker (and his great dog) for the Illest of Illustration show. What a cool dude!
i sculpted this cyclops and his laptop for class and i still have some changes to make but here is this photo anyway
There was a lull at work today so I grabbed some construction paper and painted this on autopilot. Kitties.
My first week of senior year… has happened. Fingers crossed this will be a good one.
I’ve been busy with work and a few cool art things I can’t show off yet, so here is a filler snake. Locke was very alert and doing cool guy poses after feeding time last night, and I caught a couple of non-blurry photos.
