sink or swim, concept sketches, pen on paper
lame-o name, but based off the deer tick song of the same name.
anyway, this is usually how many times i sketch thumbnails for any illustration. these span about… 3-4 months? i often think of something aesthetic without real meaning and later tailor it when it gains relevance later on.
in other news, my team and i landed a table at ape this year! this brings much excitement and anxiety.
excitement: my team and i will be under the name Live in Tonga (as in, “we’re live in Tonga). they’re all super talented :D
anxiety: having a table at a comic convention brings to attention that i don’t really draw comics. OH GEE, what is a poser like me supposed to do? work like hell apparently! granted i find the time to do so, i really want to develop an old “children’s book” concept from my years at RISD. (spoiler— it’s about king henry VIII and his wives hehe). wish me luck…
