Sketches

Pencil sketch of cat, Stella
Pencil drawing of cat sleeping
Drawings from my sketchbook exploring hands, cat and pumpkin sketches.  Trying to figure out other subjects to draw besides my plastic fruit, hands, and cat.  I enjoy drawing my cat, it's limited to when she's sleeping. I am able to catch sketches of her in moments when she is awake, however it is a challenge.

Character Birthdays

Today is the birthday of one of my characters from Gesso Squad. It's not the birthday I had assigned the character, but instead, the day I finished the character design which included clothing used in public and costumes worn while having adventures with friends. I haven't illustrated or written a graphic novel in almost a year. I miss my characters and I'm working on revisiting them again. I enjoy drawing and painting their interactions with the world and each other.  The one thing which takes so much time in writing these books is that I'm doing the work of several people: writing, illustrating, painting backgrounds, editing, drawing layouts, creating new character designs, props, storyboarding, and book layout in InDesign. To find out which character has a birthday today books are available at: www.gessosquad.com.
