Live, From Chicago, It's The Ladies Night Anthology Kickstarter!

The Kickstarter for the Ladies Night Anthology comic "Sisters" is now live! Me and @kaiawrites and 22 other awesome women have been working on writing and drawing comics for this book. If you love my work, please consider supporting me and these other artists who have been working so hard: 
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ladiesnightanthology/ladies-night-anthology-vol-5-sisters/description


Here are a couple process shots of the story I've been working on. 





So, on top of that, I have also been working on a short comic for the Northside Comic Artists anthology "Misadventure". I'll let yous guys know more about that when I get more info about the release. Here are a couple process pics from that. 


For some reason I just posted all the images where you can see my bra. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


I've been busy, busy, busy. I've got a couple of other comic and illustration projects in the oven right now, I'm posting daily drawings for #stickathon2017 on my instagram and twitter, and I'm filling up my sketchbook in record time this year. I'll post more about all that stuff soon. Enjoy!

Oh Hey, I Didn't See You There

Hey! I have some news I wanted to share. First the good news! So I got accepted to contribute to the Graham Cracker Comic's Ladies Night Comics Anthology! I'm super excited. I've been paired up with the awesome writer, Kaia Danielle, and I can't wait to get started working on this project. 

In other news, I have an Instagram account now! While I don't think it's the best platform for artists, it is a good way to get my art out to more people along with my Twitter. So you can follow me @Saturn2169

And with all that, the bummer news is that I probably won't be updating this blog very often (not that I was very good at keeping it updated in the first place). I'll just be using this blog for Sketchy Magee sketchdumps and occasional process shots of some of my more intensive illustration and comics work. 

Until next time, enjoy this process shot of my original submission for my application to the Ladies Night Comics Anthology themed Sisters.

Au Revoir Sketchy Magee and Hello Chicago Zine Fest!

Earlier this week I finished up another sketchbook. I feel like I definitely grew a lot in this book. There was lots of fun stuff and a lot of comics ideas and thumbnails that I'm working on putting together for "No Pants Revolution Part 2". I didn't post any of my comics stuff but below you can see some of the other fun stuff I sketched.

Lots of ladies (surprisingly clothed)


A ton of embarrassing self portraits

Several drawings of people (mostly portraits) courtesy of r/redditgetsdrawn


So much fan art
(Wonder Woman)

(Marceline)

(Amethyst, Ariel, Batgirl)

And some other fun stuff like this naked lady popping out of the water

This weird lady

And slightly less embarrassing self portaits. 



B-b-b-b-BONUS!

So, next month (May 6th) I will be tabling at Chicago Zine Fest. I'm finishing up the last bits of "No Pants Revolution Part 2" and will have that for sale along with some other fun stuff. So come fuck with me!

Happy Holidays from 2016

Ah! It's April 2017 and I still haven't posted my holiday card from 2016. To be fair due to some mix 'em ups the last person on my list didn't receive their card til March. But, anyway, here you go. 

Rough sketch idea from my sketchbook

Light pencils

Inks. I inked the snow in blue ink.

Final after hand coloring and touch-ups and text in Photoshop.

Also, if you are interested in receiving a holiday card from us in 2017 just shoot me a Facebook message with your address (you don't even have to say "hi!" or what you want. I'll just know) and I'll add you to my list. 

Also, also, I've got about two pages left in my sketchbook, so stay tuned for another Sketchy Magee wrap up post!

Also, also, also, big announcement coming soon!

A Couple of Cool Chicks

A few months ago I was at the discount store Tuesday Morning and I found reams of different colored cardstock of various sizes. Each pack had over a hundred sheets and varied in price between $2-$6. I spent about $20 in total. The weight has been good for pen, marker and colored pencil. I've been inspired to do a ton of these little illustrations: some fanart, some original stuff. Here are just a couple of cool chicks I decided to draw. 

Carrie Kelley (Robin), Marceline The Vampire Queen and Barbara Gordon (Batgirl)
