LYFE IN 2010

I've been working almost EVERY NIGHT lately! I'm so busy being tired from work and social with friends that drawing has been a little on the backburner lately. But I am forcing myself to come back online for a moment and share my latest stuff with you nice people!

Scribble and Skarfy appear in a poster you might hang in a guidance counselor's office. Rub their bellies for good fortune!

I'm having a really great time drawing Scribble and Skarfy lately, but I think that simple one-piece drawings (like the one above) aren't enough for them. So I've decided that I'm honestly and truthfully going to start doing Hipstergirls webcomics. Yay!!

I've come up with a little over a dozen ideas for strips so far, and I'm getting more all the time. It'll be a while before the comics debut, but trust me when I say that you won't wanna miss 'em!

Remember the girls' new friend Jen that I talked about in the last post? Well since then I've given her a bit of a visual overhaul, just like I was planning to. Lots of minor changes, but they all add up to a character design that I'm now much more satisfied with.

Below is a SUPER quick crapdoodle of all three girls, just for height comparisons.

Here's something funny-
I was looking through my files and found a Jo the Faux comic I made for Ben in April 2009 that I completely forgot to ever post up here. Oh well, 10 months late is better than nothing. Yes, that is Ben and me as his characters in the last panel!

Lastly, here's my awesome pals Mariella and Rev. Alex Italics! All these years and I finally get around to drawing them together. Took me long enough!

I'm actively taking art commissions again!

Let's kick 2010 off to a crazy start!

(the ink)

This action movie poster-type image of Scribble and Skarfy in a runaway car came to me one night and I couldn't stop laughing. I had to draw it.

Here's a new character I'm making based off a girl I met at a club a couple weeks ago, named Jen. She looked exactly like this, at least as close as I can remember.
Scribble and Skarfy look up to her as the ultimate vision of "cool". They are Jen's biggest fans and hope to be just as cool as her by the time they turn 24. Jen is pretty busy with her ultra-social life and her many other mid-20s hipster/angry punk youth friends, but she lets Scribble and Skarfy hang around her sometimes. She lets them come to her whenever they need guidance because she thinks their naivety and idolization of her is cute. So she's sort of their wise mother figure, their oracle, in a way (even if her advice usually just gets the girls into more trouble).

That's a super quick drawing of Jen, I'm still toying with her design and I don't really know if I like it just yet. I'll continue to tinker though. tinker tinker tinker.

Here's a bad drawing of Lady Gaga!

Hmmm. Wallpaper, anyone? :)
