Star Belly Elves

Two posts in one week! Hurrah! Toon Club topic this week is Elves. I think I might paint the chubby one to post. Maybe though I'll just end up posting these sketches. Click for a bigger version. Drawergeeks this week is "Star Belly," completely open for interpretation. Since I have baby bellies on the brain... er belly, I drew the girl below. But then I realized that Drawergeeks is not the place for nudity, no matter how tame and rolly-poly the nudity, so I tried to come up with something else last night.

It will focus on the importance of comic anthologies and how to make tackling a large project like a graphic novel less intimidating. If you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, definitely come check it out. The conference runs from Feb 22-24, I'm not certain which day I will be speaking as I just confirmed last night.
