Part 5/5: I accidentally made an issue of a comic book in a little over a week.  It mostly was some drawing in my sketchbook last weekend but I kept going for a few pages. Then it came up in discussion with my coworker Ying and she wanted to see more… and so I kept going and going until I reached an end to the episode.Endnotes:
I dread getting made fun of because of the not-that-great drawing.  I still dread more having someone hideously offended by one of the stranger plot points.
Remember, I said this was accidental.  The first 6 pages or so were done in my most recent sketchbook.  Then I switched over to Bristol Board.  It’s all 17x24 and 18x24, which is much larger than the traditional sizing for hand-drawn comic books, but I kinda like the ability to work big.  For a while, I wasn’t using a T-square to make things straight or a lettering guide.  I’ve got a lot of experimentation.  Some of it works better than others.  And, overall, since I didn’t spend any time making reference pictures, it’s inconsistent all over the place.
I think I was vaguely hoping to prove to myself that, if I so desired, I could build up enough of a backlog to draw an B&W graphic series, comic book style, and post it a page per week.  Which I seem to have proved to myself, although I probably also need to get a little more consistent and careful, because there’s a bunch of really kinda bad frames in there, although I think I notice them more than anyone else does.
OTOH, it was an incredibly good exercise in drawing a bunch.

Dr. Sketchy’s SF: Girls with bikes
Did this with my new Prismacolor markers.  There was a point somewhere around 1999-2000 where I had the choice between buying a box of colored pencils and a box of markers for an art class.  I got the colored pencils.  I should have got the markers.

O hai!

Just creating a place for me to display my non-photographic 2D artwork so that I’m motivated to finish things and try ideas out.

There was the “Weekly Draw-off” at work last year, but that seems to have run out of steam… so I’m just going to do things on my own.  I imported some of my more favorite pics from there so I’d have something to start with.
