Abstract Comic Panels

I like comics and I like doodling. This way I get to practice one while playing with the other. 

This drawing is done in black india ink, and graphite gray oil-based ink. I used two sizes of pens and one big, chunky brush just to see if I could do the whole thing with that big of a brush. It probably could have been better with a better brush. 

After reading how-to blogs I scanned this drawing and stitched it together in photoshop. Not bad for my first time. I know reducing the size helps too, but I think I fixed all the seam issues I had. If anyone out there knows any tips and tricks that help in that process please add some comments below.

Old Artwork

I have been cleaning and found this artwork I made in 2007. I like it enough to frame it. Maybe someday...

Zazzle Made it Right

I didn't like the orange because it was a strange color orange. Here is the gold. I like it better.

O Original

Here's the original drawing I promised by a five year old!

If you know anything about art education this drawing is quite advanced for a five year old. Some things to note the high horizon line, and the fact that the blue sky isn't way on the top of the page, but filling up the whole space. I didn't teach her any of this stuff either. She has done a lot of art and is working through her experience in the world on her own, which makes it all the more remarkable.

I'm sending it back. I will rescind the title of this post if they mail me a good shirt...I changed the title because they're sending me a new shirt based on these photos.

More Designs From This Year

I created these around Valentines Day this year as a fundraiser for our school yearbook. I never posted them here, so I thought I would share them now, while I'm on a t-shirt kick.
