LULU Book 2 - Cover Drawing 1
A sketch I did last night warming up for the next pages of the second Jason Quest story I'm drawing (to see the art for the rest, click here and subscribe!) and I think at least a version of this will be the book 2 cover, if not the drawing itself painted. Which btw is what the book 1 cover is. In fact, all her covers have been pencil drawings that have been digitally painted.

Crazy Jane's Mirror
Inspired by the rather nifty new DOOM PATROL show, and especially Diane Guerrero's stellar performance, I drew this piece of one of my favorite characters ever, Grant Morrison & Richard Case's Crazy Jane. (click to enlarge)
    
Drawing her was both easy and difficult, because as I drew her I realized I'd been using elements of her in female characters all this time without realizing it. I didn't realize how much my style owed to Case.

Sleepy Sins of Suzy Spreadwell 6 - Lake of Fire
Happy new Year! And here's my first work finished for 2019. Sixth in this cheerfully blasphemous series, here Suzy is daydreaming about overcoming Satan. Well, that's one way to put it I guess.
14"x12" on Crescent board, aquarelle, gouache, and india ink.

Original available at Saatchi:

Sleepy Sins of Suzy Spreadwell 5 - Agape
The next of these things in watercolor, gouache and ink I've been making, against my better judgment when I should resume work on the comic. Anyway, this one's about blind devotion and what it may be to.

Sleepy Sins of Suzy Spreadwell 4 - Behold The Girl
My newest attempt at watercolor, which is new for me, and india ink, which is not. Also some chalk and graphite. No gouache this time.
And in this one, Suzy dreams she does something special for her savior's birthday. Merry Christmas!
