Sketchbook



For over ten years I've been collecting and drawing in sketchbooks. I probably have around 25 hard bound books that are each completely full of sketches like the ones above. These three pages are from my latest sketchbook that I started in Nov of last year. It's almost full. I often pull a lot of ideas for comic stories and individual drawings from these sketchbooks. They provide a great exercise for keeping up the practice or what little skill I have (which isn't much).

Discarded Pt. 1


This post, and the next, features pages from a little book I made from 2006 to 2008. All drawings are original to this one-off book. The book is around 28 pages in length. I've always been very interested in "art-books" or "books as art". This particular book was created with the idea of having no limits. I did drawings in it, collages, whatever. It was an interesting and fun experiment. I've thought about reproducing it, but I probably won't. So here are a few excerpts from it.

Discarded Pt. 2

Freaks

This is a new page from a short story I completed and will be published in Moral Geometry No 3. I have a fascination and love for old carnival freaks and circuses. This 12 page comic story, more like little vignettes, is all about these lovely folk but interpreted through my wonky art style. Not sure if it works, but it was fun to do none the less. Click the image to enlarge if you wish.

Review of Moral Geometry No. 2

Got a nice review recently from www.thirteenminutes.blogspot.com in their review column for 3/2/11. Give it a gander why don't you.

Thanks to Justin for taking the time to review my work. I appreciate it.

Piss Boy

This little diddy is entitled "Piss Boy" and was made with pencil and India ink on a piece of paper that measures 8.5 by 11 inches. It can be all yours for a low 10 dollars on ebay.
