Faces

Here are a random bunch of sketches I did while out at a writing thing last night. Some are character ideas for the graphic novel and some are just what-not :)

About the graphic novel, I know I haven't posted any updates for ages. I had been both roughing out sections and starting to work on final pages, but after thinking hard about it yesterday, I decided to put final pages on hold for now. I really like the overall story and I want to make sure I'm telling it in the clearest/most direct way possible. So now my goal is to have a readable rough copy of the entire book by next summer, that way I can get feedback from friends while it's still easy to change things.

Thank you everyone so much for the comments on the last post too.

It's fun wondering what those stories might be! :D I finally found my tablets charger and got a new bluetooth - so I can draw again! I'm going to update my blog as soon as I can! :]

Sarah - great sketches! Not sure if I have a fav, but it might be the top center one.

So, I've gone through your blog and website now. You've mentioned a graphic novel you're working on - do you have any books out there already? I couldn't find anything on Amazon (or Wikipedia).

Such great characters... I always love seeing your sketches. These are nice ones again.

I love how each of these characters seem to have something going on in their head. The girl in the bottom center could be the saddest girl in the world.

John K. (of Ren and Stimpy fame) would always push his animators to draw "hyphenated" expressions. He said, "No one is ever just happy, or just mad, it's always a combination of emotions."

I think you capture the essence of that perfectly.
