Road Warrior(s)

The Hard 8 crew is taking a road trip to San Francisco for Wondercon!
Mark your calendars: March 2-4 at Moscone South. We'll be in Artist's Alley, booth AA76.
Hope to see you there!

...And here's some other stuff I've been up to:
Sunday horses...

And a sketch of my website's new front page (if I don't change my mind in a month).

Artist's Block

I don't know if anybody else gets this, but whenever I'm working on something that NEEDS to be DONE, I'll distract myself by drawing something else. I don't think I'll ever understand why, but here's a couple distractions that hit me this weekend.
First up: the latest incarnation of the horse phase I'm going through. I just don't know what to call it. Motohorsey? Equicycle? I dunno.

And Panic the cat. A character I've been distraction drawing for YEARS now. You couldn't open any of my college notebooks without seeing THIS guy lurking around in there. Waiting to beat somebody over the head.

Now back to Hard 8! No distractions!

Living a half-hour's walk from the LA equestrian center has it's benefits! This Sunday was a.. well, competition of sorts. In the big arena, group after group of riders came out and strutted their stuff in front of the judges. There wasn't any dressage or rodeo antics (that I saw), just a lot a walking. Which is perfect for life drawing! These are the better horse sketches I did.
*Some of these depictions may not have happened.

More sketchin'

These are just some random bits inbetween the big projects. First is a concept sketch for "Squirrel and Sparrow": a 7-page jaunt full of magic and swordplay that'll be bundled with my sketchbook this year.

Then some more miscellaneous Audrey/Zorn explorations (with a Fallout sketch mixed in).

I'll post some Hard 8 volume 2 stuff NEXT time!
