Curse of the Eel volume 2 cover!

Hello everyone! A lack of updates to this site means I've mainly been working on freelance works that I can't really share, but it's good to be busy! I've also been doing my best to keep up with all my original comics, and Curse of the Eel volume 2 is almost ready to go! Here is my process for this cover and some of my thoughts on it.

Curse of the Eel is my take on a modern day world where eldritch creatures and magic wind up in the hands of some odd peoples. Connie is a goth girl who is bullied at high school, and the only person she's able to trust/talk with, is the weird Cthulhu-ish Eel monster that she accidentally summoned. Unfortunately for Connie, Eel isn't the only weird eldritch abomination wandering the halls of her school and the woods of the surrounding area.

This comic was my thesis for my MFA and has been running for 5 years at this point, and I'm working on the 12th chapter as we speak! It's actually doing well on sites like Tapastic and Smackjeeves.

For this cover, I wanted to mirror the first volume cover but also showing that the earth and the Eel's realm are being smashed together, and the thin veneer keeping the worlds separate are cracking, hence the fun glass cracks!

As always, inked with my Raphael 8404 #3 brush with Yasutomo sumi ink on Stillman & Birn Beta Paper.

Paper Champion pencils and inks

Hello! Another long lapse in posts, but here is a freelance comic I illustrated earlier in the year for Jeff Morris titled "Paper Champion." This is a highly personal story for Jeff and I was happy that he approached me to draw the comic for him! You can read the comic, fully colored and lettered on his website: https://ibuiltamountainofthunder.com/i-built-a-mountain-of-thunder/paper-champion/

Script: Jeff Morris
Pencils & Inks: Me
Colors: Emily Elmer Walker
Letters: Micah Myers

These pages were drawn on Stillman & Birn paper and inked with Deleter Nibs with Sumi Ink.

Spencer and Locke vol 2 complete!

Hey all, time sure flies! This is a quick look at some of the art from Spencer and Locke volume 2 which finished its 4 issue run a few weeks ago. The book is really well received, so thank you all for reading! Also, below in the pages, there will be spoilers, so maybe don't look until you read the issues!

Materials: Deleter G-pen, Sakura Sumi Ink, Pentel Color Brush
Paper: Stillman and Birn Alpha and Zeta paper

The snowmen of this issue were a blast to draw. Monsters are a lot of fun!

Issue 4 was a great end to this arc, but also a good way for us to really make some things pay off that we started in volume 1.

Spencer and Locke Volume 2 Going Strong!

Hello, welcome to the end of May! I thought I had posted something about S&L volume 2 but that apparently didn't happen, so here's a quick little art gallery of some of my favorite pages that are being shared of the book! These are just my inks, so you can see some of what I was sending to David Pepose, Jasen Smith, and Colin Bell which is our team on the book. I hope you enjoy the quick gallery!
