Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, and Strip Search

Yeesh, I'm seriously terrible about updating this blog.  Lately I've just had a lot to do, which means not much time for drawing personal stuff.  Hopefully that'll change soon.  Also, if you want to see new art more often, you can check my tumblr out- I post on there fairly regularly, although a lot of it is dumb stuff like post-it doodles and things like that.  Sometimes I post comics and fun stuff too, though.

Here's some of the stuff I've posted to my tumblr lately...also I've got a cool announcement at the bottom of this post, so don't miss it!  :]

From Game of Thrones, Catelyn Stark.

Robb Stark

Joffrey "Little Shit" Baratheon

...and the lovely Khaleesi!

Here's Arya...

...and here are some doodles of how I see Arya from the books, rather than the show.

Here's how Ygritte looks in my head.

These next ones are characters from Downton Abbey...a few of these were drawn without reference and I think they turned out to be the funnier ones.

Here's an example of the types of comics I sometimes post on tumblr (Sorry Adam).

Now for the fun stuff!  Tomorrow (Friday the 1st) the first episode of Strip Search will be up and ready to watch!  For those not in the know, it's a reality style web show for web comic artists that Mike and Jerry of Penny Arcade dreamed up, and I was lucky enough to be a part of it.  I know it sounds crazy but it was a seriously fun experience. 

If you click the picture above it'll take you to the site, which is pretty fun even though the first episode isn't up yet (edit, the show is up now).  There's a trailer for the show, bios for each artist, and a couple interviews that are pretty hilarious/enlightening.

To end this post, above is a little drawing of my fellow artists/strippers/friends/competitors.  I love them all, so check out their comics!  I'll list them in the order that I drew them:


If any of you watch the show, let me know what you think!  :]

Skadi book and CTN!!

I'm pretty happy...I was thinking I wouldn't be able to make it to CTNX this year, but it turns out I can! Also, I will be there selling the Skadi book, which is finally done!  It feels really exciting to hold a finished book in my hands.  Pretty neat. 

SO!  About the's pretty big, magazine size, 128 pages, and is in full color.  It's mostly made up of the comics from the first two years that Luke and I did Skadi, though there are a couple newer comics thrown in, as well as a bit of new art.  You can pre-order the signed book for 20 bucks plus shipping and handling at the new SKADI STORE, or you can wait and pick one up at CTNX.  I'll be sharing a booth HERE with Luke Cormican and Gabe Swarr.

Besides the 100 pages of comics, there are also nine beautiful pinups from art heroes Bill Pressing, Brianne Drouhard, Emmy Cicierega, Pedro Vargas, Becky Dreistadt, Alex Kirwan, Kristen McCabe, Shawn Dickinson, and Seo Kim.  There's even two bonus comics from fellow Dumm artists Gabe Swarr and Sean Szeles.  And at the end of the book, we've added seven pages of development Skadi art from as far back as 2004.

So again, you can buy this book HERE.  I'll be putting up an easy to see store button on my blog soon.  If you pre-order, you also get two extra 5.5" x 8.5" mini prints:

Here's some extra art...hope you guys check out the store!

Thanks again guys!

Girls fighting pens, goddesses, and somber redheads

Yikes, I haven't been updating this blog much!  Here's some recent stuff, though.  A lot of it has appeared on my Tumblr, so sorry for the repetition.  

I got this neat pose book in Little Tokyo with people fighting, so here are some tiny doodles I did while looking at it.

Next I wanna try drawing some of the men in the's getting boring drawing just girls all the time.

Hopefully the Instagram treatment isn't too annoying to anyone.  I've seen people complain, but honestly it's a pretty useful tool for getting your art seen by people outside of your circle!  Here's a scan of the actual sketchbook, just in case.

A little while ago I had a day-long obsession with Artemis and drew her a bunch.  When I was younger I really liked Greek mythology and she was my favorite goddess.

Man, this new blogger stuff is a pain in my ass.  Anyhow, above is a sketchbook doodle and it's Photoshop clean up.  Which one do you prefer?  Here's some more Photoshop clean up...the original sketches were kinda crappy.


 Here's some more watercolor stuff I did a while ago...I originally posted them on my Tumblr after putting them through Instagram, but I'll just put the originals here.

 Nevermind, I lied...I'll put one filtery one here cause it just looks cooler....  >__<

Also, big news! I'm finally getting my first book out this's a collection of the first two years or so of my webcomic, Skadi.  If you're going to APE this year you might be able to get one, otherwise I'll be selling them myself online near the end of the month.  You can find them at the Dumm booth, with Luke and Gabe. Unfortunately I won't be there...I had no idea we would be finishing the book on time to be sold at the conventions, and I never got tickets.  I'm gonna be signing them though!

Here is a map for where you can find them at APE, if you're going.

Thanks for checking back!  ^u^

Mostly Conan, plus Khaleesi.

I haven't had much time for drawing lately, but here are some sketches I did a while ago while re-watching Conan the Barbarian for the 50th time.  They look a bit somber to me.  I still feel weird drawing men, so it's harder to loosen up.  I'm also just rusty from not drawing for myself lately.

Thulsa Doom and Conan in his little cultist getup.

These ones are actually from Conan the Destroyer, cause I couldn't find my copy of Conan the Barbarian and got desperate.


Rexor.  I love this guy.

There's been a trend lately to use the app Instagram to take photos of your drawings, and add filters to them.  It seems a bit like cheating, but the results just look cooler, and I can't help but wanna do it. 

Conan's ma.

Cultist princess lady.


It's been kind of a crappy time lately, so I've been having a hard time drawing loose and cartoony. A couple years ago I did some Conan drawings that are more spontaneous and lively.  You can see them here, if you're interested.

Oh, and here's a bonus Khaleesi.  Who here loves Game of Thrones??

Post that has nothing to do with Valentine's

The next few posts I want to do will be about my hillbilly comic characters, but since I still need to go digging to find them, here are some drawings that were originally put up on my Tumblr. Here's Anne and Lore from Don't Deliver Us From Evil (again).

I post a lot of weird little post-its and work doodles on my Tumblr. Most of the stuff on there doesn't make it to my blog.

Here's a new character from my Skadi comic.

I do this kind of stuff when I'm at work waiting for a new assignment.

It took me a while to figure out how Tumblr worked, and why anyone would want to use it, but it's actually pretty neat.

Doodled on a windy day. Come back soon to see more hillbilly stuff! Thanks guys!

New drawing and new postcards for sale

I made this drawing in Photoshop for fun, and ended up kind of liking it.

The original sketchbook version is always better though, at least to me.

Anyhow, I thought it would look cute as a little print, so I got four more drawings together and made a postcard set that you can buy on my Etsy shop. Each one is shiny and colorful and about 4" x 6". Here are the other ones...all stuff I've posted before, but tweaked to be more "print worthy."

I am making larger prints of some of these that will also be on my Etsy store shortly. I'm also working on some new Skadi prints.

You can click this drawing to go to the shop! Thanks!

Also, thanks for all the encouragement on my last post. I'll definitely be posting more drawings from my hill folk project soon.
