It’s been a long time since I’ve worked on the final art for a piece without ink! I’m trying to use only pencil on drafting vellum - giving this a lot more natural texture in the drawing stage, rather than forcing it with digital textures. I’m aiming for something closer to a painting than a lot of my other pieces.
Also, check out that goofy glove I cut up! That keeps the graphite smearing to a minimum. My hands get insanely sweaty, so I cut some of the fingers out for grip as well as ventilation.
So yeah. Finally working on an actual illustration again, not just sketches. Feels good man.

    As enjoyable as silkscreen and other printmaking methods can be, linocut is so intuitive - you’re just drawing with carve marks instead of ink marks. After making a quick practice panel, I got to work on this piece.

    Every year in my church, we have a weekend where high school members visit the college groups. Typically during this time each of the small groups make t-shirts, but I had the idea of making vests with matching patches for our group (named Kodiak).

    I think I need a break from the manic pace of school, work, putting together the CCAD Comics Anthology, etc. Carving can be tedious, but it’s actually really relaxing and offers a nice break from the insanity of the rest of my work right now. I’m excited to show you guys the final when it’s done!

    Working on a large silkscreen print (this design) that has been giving me grief for a month now. FINALLY finished the first layer! Here’s a peek at part of it!
