Sketch of the Day 45 - The Vagabond

After doing The Deep the other night for my daily sketch topic, I figured I'd try another Australian comic with The Vagabond.

Sketch of the Day 44 - Homecooked Comics Festival

Alana and I had an amazing day yesterday at the Homecooked Comics Festival. It is amazing how continually we are surprised by events, the turnout, vibe and support for indie comics. We met so many great new people, had a hugely fun day and were once again stoked with how many new readers jumped on board.

This little sketch is certainly not an accurate representation of the event but we like to think that Oreo was there in spirit :)

Starcraft Commission

Had a lot of fun with this Starcraft commission. Cheating a little and constituting this as the sketch of the day :)

Aussie comics on ComiXology

ComiXology​ have just revamped their ComiXology Submit page with a new 'Comics around the World' Section. Check out that Aussie section with 76 titles and growing. Do yourself a favour and check out some of these amazing books and if you're a creator get your stuff up there and show folks the kind of good stuff we are producing down here. (Keep in mind to that this doesn't even include the amazing stuff that some local folks are doing for the big international titles either!)

Sketch of the Day 41

It's been a bit crazy busy the last few days, so I've missed a few daily sketches. Hopefully getting back on track with this one...

Oreo and me...

Today's daily sketch is a little on the self indulgent side. It's Oreo and me (Oreo made me do it!). There's a reason for this sketch anyway, which will become clear in the days to come :)

Busy, busy!

Have been a bit preoccupied these past couple of days as I've had a heap of work on. This has unfortunately meant that the daily sketch and From Above has been a little neglected.

That said I've also been working on a four page story for the folks at Melbourne Comics and their Project Orangutan. Its a fun little story that I've done in full color that was something a little different from those that are used to reading From Above. It was nice to work in full color too. Here's a little sneaky peak...

It's been a busy twelve months really when I look back at it, especially from a comics perspective. Obviously there's been the quarterly release of From Above, but I've also got to dabble in a few other things as well. Recently there's this little 4 pager I've written and drawn for Project Orangutan, there's a 3 page story I did the art duties for on Ben Michael Byrne's upcoming NSEW, and then I also wrote and illustrated a 5 page full color story for the upcoming horror themed Gaining Velocity. Add to that the new project I am working on at the moment with the uber talented Ryan K Lindsay, and I can look back and consider this to have been a very productive year. Oh, yeah, I forgot to add a few competition entries in the IDW ZvR comic that got my art featured in the back of ZvR Issue 3 (not quite the same as being published by IDW but hey you gotta start somewhere).

So anyway, it's back to work. The daily sketches will resume and I'll keep plugging away trying to crack this tough nut that is the comics industry. Fingers crossed!

Day before a convention. Prepping today but, still always time for a quick daily sketch...

Pre-convention nerves...

I would think that I have done enough conventions now to NOT get nervous in the lead to them. Sadly this is not the case. Doing a bit of digital sketching to keep my mind off this...

Sketch of the Day 37

It's cold this morning so maybe that'e the inspiration behind today's daily sketch...
