    Hi, uh, first time posting any of my art on here.

    I drew a nude witch after reading Hellboy: The Crooked Man and while listening to a lot of Ritualz.


    And here's a naughty Valentine's Day drawing I did yesterday:

    Some art for a friends charity organization art auction. http://www.xpfamilysupport.org/newsriverock.html

    5 minutes exposure to direct sunlight triggers third-degree burns and sometimes blindness. A horrible condition. I started the drawing with a huge knight fighting a sun dragon, but it changed to this. As young children fight daily against the very thing that gives Earth life, I wanted something a little more personnal and show how strong these kids must be.

    this is an inspiring thread : )

    ...sketch conceived to be part of an illustration, but i kind like it alone



    ...& this one was inspired by an amazing book, so it goes with text

    beso

    "And at the place where time stands still, one sees lovers kissing... in a frozen embrace that will
    never let go. The loved one will never take his arms from where they are now, will never give back the bracelet of memories, will never journey far from his lover, will never place himself in danger in self-sacrifice, will never fail to show his love, will never become jealous, will never fall in love with someone else, will never lose the passion of this instant in time. (...)

    Lovers who return find their friends are long gone. After all, lifetimes have passed. They move in a world they do not recognize. Lovers who return still embrace in the shadowsof buildings, but now their embraces seem empty and alone. Soon they forget the centuries-long promises, which to them lasted only seconds. They become jealous even among strangers, say hateful things to each other, lose passion, drift apart, grow old and alone in a world they do not know. Some say it is best not to go near the center of time. Life is a vessel of sadness, but it is noble to live life, and without time there is no life. Others disagree. They would rather have an eternity of contentment, even if that eternity were fixed and frozen, like a butterfly mounted in a case."

    Been away from this thread for a while, but here's what I've been doing:

    musician
    music

    These are drawings that'll get used in a CD cover design for my friend Thomas, the musician there pictured (he looks a little like me IRL... somehow I have several pseudo doppleganger associates. I have no idea why.) This project is sooo late! Should wrap it up tomorrow.

    Playing with typographical treatments for 80s TV cartoons Remake/Remodel. They seem so maxxed out that the only way to go is minimalist.

    Wonderful work as ever. Been hovering in other corners of the net. Missed it here!

    regen_zz

    I just designed the cover for a political book. Most of the photos are by the brilliant http://lindsaymackenzie.com/. A few are mine (typewriter...etc). Hope you like. Here's some blurb:

    'Regeneration focuses on the question of intergenerational justice. Defining the world's young people as those born after 1979 - a hugely symbolic moment in the history of globalisation - it reflects on the massive growth in generational protest across the globe thirty years later. At its heart is an analysis of politics though the prism of generation. The incapacity of the major political parties in Britain to think beyond their short-term electoral interests is, by definition, particularly harmful for those at the beginning of their lives. It has led to a failure to act on climate change, savage cutbacks in education and training, an acute shortage of housing, big cuts in youth services, and, for many, the prospect of an old age without pensions. Things have deteriorated to the point where many young people are finding it impossible to find the wherewithal to settle down and have families - the classic marks of adulthood. But, as Shiv Malik argues in his preface, a diagnosis of the problem does not absolve the young from taking responsibility for developing solutions. We need more than 'a whinge of epic proportions'.

    And, as he also points out, the young are well placed to develop alternatives: 'we are the most well-educated, innovative, dynamic and open generation in human history'. This means that this book also has plenty of ideas for changing the future.'

    The book launch is on Thursday at Foyles with Shiv Malik, Deborah Grayson, Adam Ramsay, and Clare Coatman in conversation with Evan Davis.

    @Animated trigger: Welcome aboard!
    @Mojokingbee: You might have answered this before, but where, and when, will your pages be published, and how can we buy your comics?
    @Neil Ford: It's always a pleasure, and inspiring, to see your work.
    @Oddbill: Gorgeous portrait!

    After last week's Captain Future Remake/Remodel, I thought I wanted to do another shot on my version of The Brain:
    The Brain, one of Captain Future's Amazing Lab Goons

    @animated trigger…love the line textures on the first piece.
    @pupato…love the pose of the lover pic.
    @neil…sweeet Dredd!
    @oddbill…beautiful pastel pieces. What size are you working on?
    @salgood sam…nice, clean lines.
    @yoav..sweet cover.
    @miranda…awesome Brain Koala!!! as for my stuff…I've only got the derby book here and a short comic here and another one for issue 4 which coincidentally is launching end of the week. Not too sure if they do international orders but I hear they're planning on selling digital versions soon. I've got a 26-pager which is 2 pages from finished and another 16-pager to get started...both collabs with fellow whitechaplers. hope that helps.

    Hey, @Yoav, nice cover. A friend of mine wrote a chapter for that ... hope the launch on Thursday goes well. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to make it, but if I do will you be there for me to say hello to?

    @mojokingbee - thanks! they are about 20" by 30". - Also, I'm very interested in seeing more of your comics work, from what I recall of your history of posting here, you started out strong with a solid style that was extreme but didn't feel forced, and you've only been getting better. The pages you've shown us as you work on them have all been compelling. You seem to be prolific. I think you should set up a website and put one piece of something up each day. It'd be great if it was a comic that you could do casually, in between other gigs. I'd love to see much more of your work, and I'd love to be able to do that in one place!

    I have been working up the courage to share my toon bots here. It's intimidating posting with the massive talents here. So much beautiful work.

    These are drawings that I did for and with my five year old son. They were all drawn on the Toshiba Thrive tablet I got for xmas in the Photoshop Touch app.

    @Sleestak Very cool man. I dig. I have to tip my hat to you for a bit of bravery as well. There is a ton of amazingly talented people here, enough so that it is equal parts inspiring and totally disheartening, haha.
