Some previews from my WIP black and white zine
I will probably continue to post a few pages here and there semi-regularly until the whole thing is finished. Keep posted!
So along with the comic heres a preview of another personal project I’ve been working on, soon to be released in a printed greyscalyle zine. A large focus on Greyscale as the new theme of the zine but more on that later yo
four arms vs ϟϟϟϟϟϟ
This piece is kind of a b-side to the painting I did for Hyper Reality. It began as an initial idea I had when planning the first piece but ran out of time to paint as a second piece. I might revisit this with acrylics later, who doesn’t like hero/villain fights!?
Something I started ages ago. fashion/fantasy/girls/animals. Playing around with drawing textures and repeats, more to come.
I was asked along with a bunch of other artists to choose our fav food related scene from a movie and draw it in grayscale for the new Beef Knuckles zine. I decided to roll with the Chilled Monkey Brains scene from Temples of Doom. Not too sure about the true origins of this delicacy, but a classic scene nonetheless.
To see the other works and pick up a copy be sure to come to the Zine Fair at the MCA on Sunday.
Working on a comic is generally ceebs/needs lots of effort and dedication.Growing up I loved comics, Japanese or Western. My favourite characters were Spawn and Spiderman espeically when done by dudes like Jim Lee or Todd McFarlane. As illustrators comic book artists are greatly underrated, the hustle of pumping 30+ pages per month is amazing. I owe like 90% of my style to those artists comibined with all of the Jap stuff.
When drawing a comic people usually read a script and think, “wow that part would be sick to draw!” but you never think about the “filler” moments
eg. heavy conversation between 2 characters over coffee for like 3 pages…
In these moments readers are usually dedicated to the words with the drawings in these parts being an afterthought. So I thought, wouldnt it be cool If i draw only the “cool” moments
So In short over the last couple of months ive been working on a series of random “scenes” from comics, for the reader to make up the story themselves. I might release them all collected as a zine but mostly, this was all an old idea I had that I wanted to sketch out for my own sanity…. sometimes you gotta do things for the love of it right?
Anyways here are a few, ill upload more soon, enjoy!
this one below is probably one of the worst things ive ever drawn haha. I did this like a year ago as a serious attempt for a full length comic, I thought id throw it up for the lols/timbo
Pick up a comic and read/look!
