My comic book. Another page.

I am very interested in what Will Eisner called "sequential art" and I've been doing extensive studies of the genre by reading Scott McCloud's books on the subject as well as reading graphic novels such as "Blankets" by by Craig Thompson.

I guess I'm starting to give in to my belief that illustration art is actually in some ways a higher art than so called "fine art." I think at times, I kept away from doing illustration because I was a fraid I didn't have enough skill. Now I've even done a couple of book covers!

The last couple of pages on my blog are studies and some finished works for a graphic novel/comic book that I am working on with author/screenwriter Paul Foley. These images are not in the correct order.

Come by my website

to see my latest stuff. I'm also working on some tutorials for my students in life drawing classes. Let me know if you want a direct link to the PDF.

I've started work on a graphic novel with writer Paul Foley


I'll be posting some of the drawings that I'm working on from time to time for our project!
