BoardSock Empire

In my last semester of grad school, I learned how to make GIFs! The timing on this is perfect because I am working on a series of short, sock-puppet-themed movies called BoardSockEmpire. As cross promotion, I am creating these GIFs. Eventually, I will incorporate these into a scrolling cityscape, not unlike XZCD’s infinite scroll comic, though significantly smaller. In the meantime, I share with you now these GIFs.

Tomorrow Jerks

Apologies for my absence lo these past weeks. It’s been a busy month! Here’s what’s going on:
-I got engaged
-I finished grad school
-I launched my new comic, Tomorrow Jerks
-I am moving
-I went to LA for a weekend

And now I’d like to talk to y’all about Tomorrow Jerks, my new comic! It’s about about a couple of jerks and their Walrus buddy, yukkin’ it up in the future! The first chapter is up already and the second chapter is rolling out, one page a week! It’s free, Bee Tee Dubs. Here’re a couple o’ pages, to give you a taste. They’re unrelated:

Cuirassier’s Lion Helmet

Long time followers of this blog will know that I am a fan of fancy military helmets, particularly the Prussian Pickelhaube. I just happened upon this image, and it struck me as an opportunity to ink wash! I applied the color in photoshop.

(PS: if anyone finds a type-o in this post, my cat walked over the keyboard)

Samurai Helmets

Helmets, hats, masks; all manner of facial coverings interest me. Samurai helmets are particularly riveting to me because of the artistry involved. Additionally, the face coverings emote dramatically, lending themselves to beautiful shadows.

Octopus

I follow a very cool Instagram account by the name of OctoNation, and account that is all about octopi art and media. They posted a very cool sculpture of an octopus that really highlighted the eyes, and it inspired me to draw this.

I wanted to use the wash as a background element so the stark contrast would really foreground the octopus. The wash also makes an appropriate background for the octopus, who is able to squirt ink.
