Good Night Mrs. Goose Paintings

Here are two watercolor paintings of my characters Lady Grimm and Valerie Clark from my story Good Night Mrs. Goose.I took a lot of inspiration for the design scheme of the book from Alphonse Mucha, who is practically THE Art Nouveau artist. I'm not even a tenth as good as he is, but it's fun trying to incorporate those design ideas into illustrations. I need to work harder at it.

Marker Spread

Here's a spread I did for one of my original comics, Good Night Mrs. Goose. I'm really proud of this and I think the markers came out well on it.

Pencil Portfolio Image #1

I'm putting together a portfolio of strong pencils to see if I can get a gig drawing comics when I move to Atlanta. I honestly couldn't think of a story of my own that I wanted to do for this so I went with this idea for a Batman story I came up with a while ago.

I'll admit, when I draw my own comics I don't tend to be this detailed. Mostly because since I ink my own pages I know what I'm going to do in the inking stage that won't require me to render things 100% as I imagine them in pencil. This is probably one of the first pages I've pencilled thinking that I should include all I want in there for the inker. It's kinda fun!

My inspirations as far pencils go are Jerome OpeƱa, Sal Abbinanti, and Alex Ross.
