Brand new #studio set up. Loving all the room. #illustration #drawing (Taken with instagram)
Little explanation:
I have an Asus hooked up to an amazing flatbed scanner (new this year) that I use for importing all the work I make traditionally.The drafting table was an awesome find, a heavy duty fold-up style for $3 at a yard sale. Those are the most uncomfortable wicker-seat chairs I sit on. They were hand-painted in Mexico, and I appreciate the craftsmanship. But, I hate them. What you don’t see to the left is a 5’5 ferret cage. To the right will go a table with a 32” screen. Plus, eventually my HP printer.
The great thing about drafting tables is that they can easily be converted into a flat surface, so I could package prints and merch or work on other crafts. It’ll be very handy when I need to cut paper and assemble comic books! Hoorah.

20 Comic Gap: Improvement Over Time

Here we have a comic posted on the first of November 2011, and the comic posted today, December 27, 2012. I am always trying to improve the look of [citation needed]¬†for the benefit of our readers, and to challenge myself as an artist. Some installments are rushed, and the quality suffers. It is the unfortunate predicament of illustrating on top of a 40 hour data entry job. I force myself to remember that every comic, sketch, print, or digital painting has the potential to be a valuable portfolio piece. As a 20-something working towards full time illustration, it is my second job. I’m lucky to be passionate enough about something I don’t mind going unpaid for. Here’s to improvement and another 250 comics-
