I've been pretty slack on getting my Lead Poets Society drawings up, so here a few from the past weeks. I have also started a blog for the LPS and all the people who come each week to post up there drawings. One drawing was from Noir night. You had to have a background in the piece. As always, I like the concept, but the drawing itself is riddled with issues. And again, like always, I don't give a shit. I love just drawing the idea and not a cover. It's freeing and just plain fun. One was from Eskimo Hunter night. I went with an arctic hunter impossibly dragging a giant mammoth. And one was from...I can't even remember the night, but sucked and decided to just draw my man, Mike Norton. Don't worry if you don't know what he looks like...I fucking nailed him!
And finally there is a one panel preview of my Frankenstein story. Well, it's more of just a test panel to try out methods of finishing the pages. I'm going for a brushy, loose and gritty feel for this project and I am really excited about the out come. It's so different for me. I'm so used to my process of cleaning a drawing up so much and making it super slick, that it was a nice change of pace to really go in there and just ink from the gut. I used a Staedtler Duo 3000 brush pen and the old trusty sharpies to fill in the big areas.
