Holiday Card 2012

So, now that everyone I sent cards to has actually gotten their card, I figured I'd post some pics of the process and the final card for the rest of the world to see. 

I decided that I wanted to do an ice skating picture, a cute little winter scene. John and I used to go ice skating quite a bit in the early years of our relationship before I acquired an allergy to the cold. Anyways, this picture isn't depicting any time in particular, but is sort of representational of our individual abilities as ice skaters (just don't ask John about that). I posted two of the original rough sketches from my sketchbook in a previous post: here

Rough sketch once I figured out the composition of the piece.

Inked version.

Just about done with the colored inks.

Final version after a couple edits in Photoshop.

Bonus: A quick little sketch of me with my morning tea. Enjoy!

You can see last year's card here.

The Last of the Snapshots

Below are the last of the Snapshots, single panel comics I made as part of my daily routine last year. As you may know, I no longer draw a daily comic, but I have about 3-4 months worth (2-6 panels each) from last year that I never posted. Hopefully I'll get around to scanning those eventually. At least before another year passes. Anyways, enjoy.

Also, here is a link to the House of Twelve Comics Collective Tumblr site. They posted a couple pictures from the comics jam I attended last week. I'm the one with the puffy hair.

2 1/2 Months Later And 3 Beers In....

So... It's been a while hasn't it. What have I been doing the past two months you may ask? Well, the animation project I was working on has been postponed temporarily. I should be able to get back to work on that pending the filming of the last couple scenes for this music video. So while that is on hiatus, I have been splitting my time between work, doing tutorials on Lynda.com, doodling in my sketchbook, drinking tea, watching Star Trek TNG and playing Black Ops 2. I'm certainly not proud of some of the decisions I've made over the past two months, but I'm hoping the shame of the hours logged in on XBox Live are behind me. I intend to spend more time at my desk or in my sketchbook, rather than on the couch or on Reddit. 

So that brings me to the whole reason for this post! This week marks the first solid productive drawing week in two months. I started the week off right by attending Draw Mania! I've mentioned Draw Mania! a couple times before on my blog. It's basically a loose figure drawing workshop in the backroom of a tiki bar in East Village. Then I capped the week with an awesome new drawing experience, NYC Comic Jam. NYC Comic Jam is a cool little event where comics artists of all levels get together and create comics together feeding off each other's creativity. I had a lot of fun and got the chance to meet and hang out with some really cool people. The spirit of the event is collaborative and each month seems to build off the previous month and so on. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pics of my own drawings from the event, but you can check out this cool little sketch one of the other artists drew of the whole group on the group creator's twitter account. I'm the one in the back with the curly hair.

Well, I'm betting everyone has stopped reading by now. So without further ado, here are a couple sketches, the reason anyone ever looks at this blog to begin with.

A couple figure sketches from Draw Mania!

Below is a little preview of my Holiday Card for 2012 for those who haven't seen it yet. I'll be posting the final version soon, once I finally mail my sister's Christmas present... sorry Erica :/

Rough sketches of John and I for the holiday card.
