Have You Been Reading- Sixth Gun?

Hello Friends.

It's been a couple of weeks since having a chance to post some new art, and I'm sorry for that- I've been playing catch up with the project I'm working on and kinda lost track of time. I finally got a chance to do a little free drawing and thought I'd do a new "Have You Been Reading..." installment (yes, that's been trademarked).

This week: Sixth Gun! I've been doodling some of the characters as warm ups in the last week or two and thought I'd put together a drawing in homage to the book. I really love this story and the art is fantastic- check out this book if you haven't already, it's one of my favorites and there is a lot to learn from the storyteling. I don't know why I picked Fournier to be the big image in the center, other than I just had a hankering to draw his face (and I have a hunch he will be sticking around in the book for a bit). It was nice to break away from the computer and just cut loose. I'll be returning to the drawing board at the end of next week so I should have some more odds and ends to post soon :)

Warming Up- Bob Marley

Who doesn't like Bob Marley? I was up early this morning listening to a bunch of his old music and it occurred to me once again just how powerful he was, both musically and spiritually. There are a lot of times where I just put that stuff on because it feels good and out of familiarity I don't really listen to it closely. However, every so often on days like today, the lyrics and message permeates through whatever was on my mind and I become SO caught up, marveling at how much he was saying with so little. Seems like the best, sharpest cutting ideas are built that way.

Anyway, I was warming up a little later and thought I might quickly sketch from some old photos on google. I like the first set of sketches a lot better than the second but I'll put them both up to check out.

Things Keep Marching Along-

I've been steady drawing away on this project I've been working on. I just finished drawing the second issue of the arc and so far I'm really happy with it. Can't wait until things get a little closer so I can start posting some new sequentials.

I'd like to say that I have big plans for Free Comic Book Day but I'm getting out of town this FCBD! I'm gonna go hide out in the forest for a few days and soak up a little nature. Looking forward to getting out of town for a bit...
