Portrait Commissions

Recently I was working on two watercolor portraits for a father with two graduating kids, one from college and one from high school. I received these commissions on April 13th, and I completed them April 30th, so just in time for both of their graduations! I'm happy to have heard that they liked their portraits, and that their dad was happy with them =D

So here's the finished product, which I have permission to share.

Media: Watercolors, mostly Sennelier with some Da Vinci colors and Holbein White Gouache. Caran d'Ache watercolor pencils for details
Paper: Stillman and Birn Beta Paper

Spencer and Locke issue 2 preview inks

Here are the inks for the preview pages of Spencer and Locke 2. I like sharing the process of the art, I feel like it's too hard to find the inks for comics a lot of the time. There's a few weird references in these pages, one to TMNT, one to Batman Year One, and one of people playing Wii games. Can you find them?

Tools: Zebra and Kuretake disposable brush pens, Pentel Color Brush and the Hybrid Technica
Paper: Stillman and Birn Alpha Paper

The S&L team is David Pepose on words, Jasen Smith on colors, and Colin Bell on letters. I originally wrote this as if we were a band, but I dunno if it made sense.
