A beetle from The Zoo

Here's a character design from my upcoming graphic novel, The Zoo. It's coming along nicely and the first episode should debut sometime this year. He is based off of my pet Japanese kabutomushi beetle, Killer.

More from Rome

Here are two of the four large ink drawings from Rome. I'm hoping to finish inking the other two today. Please open these in a new window if you want a larger image and to not see it in that annoying light box program. 

The first was made while sitting in the park with my brother at Villa Borghese.

The second was made on a quiet morning looking outside their apartment window in South Rome.

Sketching, Rome and Wheelchair Ball

I'm working on a project. In the meantime, here's a sketch from this afternoon.

I also spent two weeks in Rome, visiting my brother Ian. I watched a lot of wheelchair basketball and did a lot of sketching. Here's some gesture sketches of playing ball.

I have some larger finished drawings that don't fit into my scanner, so I don't have scans of them. However, they might be in a show soon. In that show, these sketches would also be inked and finished. So, here are a few of the quick sketches. Sorry about the bad scans.
