This is the first page of the children’s story Timmy Vs. Darkness. There are a few things I will probably change. I used special brushes to get the watercolor feel. The image resolution isn’t that great but at full resolution, one can see the speckles of ‘simulated’ light reflection in the water colored area. Software used to create this page was Manga Studio – now renamed as Clip Studio Paint.

Lots of little doodles. I was working on a cartoon about an American middle east expert – who was mostly an expert on how to play middle east expert on American 24 hour cable TV news. Looking at the state of middle east currently (or pretty much anytime), I doubt if there are really any middle east experts out there. They may be palling around with Yetis, Lochness monsters, Big Foots of the world.
These were quick sketches done on a Thursday night event a Society of Illustrators. The sketch event hosted a few talented local comedians who made us laugh while we drew them. They weren’t holding the poses – they were simply telling us a few jokes. And I was caricaturing their faces. As you probably noticed, one of the comedians came in a costume.
