Inktober Day 31

Decided to finish Inktober with Tim Burton's Halloween king. This was a fun challenge this month and I'm glad to have pulled off 31 pieces. Think I came up with some solid drawings and think I picked up some good inking practice, especially using a brush. Can definitely see the appeal.

Inktober Day 29

AlphaBooks--X is for Mr. X

For the letter "X" at the AlphaBooks Tumblr. Went with Mr. X from the excellent indy comic and graphic novel series by Dean Motter and various illustrators over the years. Some of the people who have drawn the book include Paul Rivoche, Seth and Los Bros Hernandez. Definitely worth hunting down issues or the collections that have been released.

Inktober Day 26

"Give me some sugar baby!'
"Shop smart shop S-mart."
This movie has so many great quotable lines. Some of my favorite horror films and Bruce Campbell was the man. In my mind one of films perfect trilogies.

Inktober Day 22

It seems to have become cool to no longer enjoy the Scream movies in the last few years, but I still enjoy them. Especially the first one, I like how Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven made the teenagers so hip to horror films and they still get taken down.

Inktober Day 21

 "Twas beauty that killed the beast."

The 1933 version of King Kong is still my favorite giant animal film. The stop motion Kong animated by Willis O'Brien is still perfection to me. This is one movie I can still watch over and over.

AlphaBooks--W is for Winnie the Pooh

Based my version of Winnie the Pooh on the illustrations of E.H. Shepard from the original A.A. Milne books instead of the Disney film version. Shepard's illustration's are beautiful examples of ink drawings, some with simple watercolor washes.

My second piece for Inktober. Since it actually started yesterday, I did two pieces today to catch up.

Inktober Day 1

Just found out about Inktober created by the awesome cartoonist and illustrator Jake Parker. The idea is to do one black ink drawing on white everyday for the month of October. Sounded like a fun challenge so I have decided to give it a try.Since this is taking place in October I decided to try a scary characters theme for mine.

T is for Tintin--AlphaBooks

For the letter "T" at Alphabooks I decided to go with Herge's famous boy reporter Tintin. While the movie from last year was somewhat scary the comics themselves are still awesome. There was also a cool animated series that is now on DVD. One of my favorite comics still.
