Brush & ink, no pencils.
Here is a commission I did recently. If you’d like to see some photos of the creation process, go over to my alternate website here.
Here are a few old dream comics! My dreams used to have a lot of surreal processions and festivals in them. Now my actual life has them because people in this town will do anything for a chance to say to hell with traffic let’s shuffle down the street – and I don’t ever dream at all.
I had a muck around with brush and ink last night. It was so fun I couldn’t wait to come in and do a few more before work. These were not penciled first, so are grotesque and inaccurate versions of members of the Young Liberals party.
Here is a commission I did recently. My friend wanted me to draw the area where he lived in Aukland as a present to his wife, so he sent me heaps of reference photos and google street views to work from.
The first sketch didn’t take much time and it had a lot of personality which I didn’t want to lose, so what I did was measure the dimensions and positions and transfer them to the A4 sheet using advanced mathematics techniques.
I was really happy with the drawing in the end, mainly because it should be hard to give life to apartment blocks, factories and traffic, but the screwy perspective and funny proportions do the trick!
