ELECTRO SWING! My itunes is basically overflowing with this stuff and I have a lot of art deco fonts, so I made y’all a playlist. It’s catchy as hell.
Finally got around to posting this on 8tracks, so here are new links!

If anyone needed you summed up in one post, this would be that post.
that is the damn truth.
Imagine a modern/cartoony Dick Tracy reboot, who do I pitch this to
Like it would still be campy as hell (yellow trenchcoats are the opposite of edgy) but Tess Trueheart gets her own narrative and none of the cases get solved without her insight. Also Tracy wouldn’t be a boring white guy. The soundtrack would be nothing but electro swing. Seriously you guys.
india bridal fashion week is my ultimate weakness, my dash is all kinds of gorgeous
OK SO Brent was responsible for like 95% of my commission patronage this year and is a pretty swell dude in general — as a gigantic thank you, here’s his archer guy Guillaume!
Happy holidays, man, keep being excellent.
I’ve been drawing nothing but dudes covered head to toe in ridiculous sci-fi/fantasy armor for 3 days so I took a break to draw a scantily clad lady
Thanks for the input on my last post, everybody! I expected that the segment-at-a-time format would be generally well received; basically it’s on me to keep everybody informed about pending updates in the event that the timing is inconsistent starting out (but hell, after hacking out this first chapter I’m going to be max level at this.) Once segment #1 is up I’ll establish a release date for #2 and so on.
More news will be forthcoming etc. BE EXCITED, I’M EXCITED
FELLOW READERS AND/OR CREATORS OF WEBCOMICS, I have a question!
Here’s the deal, I’m launching a comic project in the very near future that is going to shake up some of the “rules” of webcomics in terms of its storytelling method and its update schedule. Generally, webcomics follow a rigid weekly timeline of single- or multi-page updates and artists build whatever kind of page buffer they need to stay ahead — this is what everybody’s used to and is said to be the system that keep readers most engaged. HOWEVER, the way this comic is being built is the opposite of conducive to the single-page update format, in both a visual and written storytelling sense — so here’s where I’m asking for input.
(cut for length)
This has been on the backburner for months (and continues to be low priority as I draw eleventy billion bits of knight boyfriends armor) but Anu and Sacha are in it now!
Every time I try to log my process on a drawing I inevitably jack something up or switch tactics halfway through or generally just go about it in a really dumb way that should never be replicated. This time I sat down like “I’m gonna make some damn sense today,” and behold, I did it, and now I’m going to share my victory!
Here’s the usual disclaimer: this isn’t meant to be a tutorial on my coloring style or even a How To at all, it’s really just a brief set of notes on one method of tackling a drawing that is directly tailored to my personal, fairly minimalist approach to illustration. Your process won’t (and shouldn’t) be the same for every image, but once in a while it helps to hold yourself accountable for the steps you take to get there — creating something with the intention of explaining the choices you made when you’re finished makes you aware and/or critical of what you’re doing and how effectively you’re doing it.
Inspired in part by quillery’s step-by-step, which describes an entirely different method of creating a thing and is hella insightful. Mostly I just feel very strongly about working from silhouettes, okay.
