I'm changing my blog layout to a lighter palette. Everything has been kind of shifted. It looks a little weird right now - but please bear with me as we go through this reconstruction phase.

Hi guys. This is my third post today. As you can see from my post numbers, I almost have not posted anything for the past 2 months. But I have been doing lots of work! Now that I am well rested and have adequate time to make quality postings - I will give you good stuff my friends!
I've been posting Iron Man process photos for a couple months now - this is the finished product!
I've posted some calligraphy works before. I really liked this project so I thought I'd post it also. This was the final project for my calligraphy class. I decided to do a large replica of a Bill Waterson Calvin and Hobbes sunday strip. It was a very slow and careful process that involved many steps and experimentation to get the composition, scale and presentation all "just right."
I tiled printed the comic to 400% scale. I graphite transfered it to Bristol Paper. Applied water color. Lettered it. And inked the rest of the characters. Around a 12 hour process.
This is a fun project I did with my girlfriend. We always talked about doing a collaboration together - but we never got around to it. One day, we were talking about online video games and I thought of an idea for us to create a character for an MMORPG. We'd both do a sketch and we would swap. Sophia did the line drawing and I did the color.
