Sketch-A-Day

Inspired by the photo-a-day Stephen participated in with a few friends in 2014, I’ve made a New Years resolution for a sketch-a-day 2015. Sitting down and drawing isn’t always the hardest part, but having the composition in mind of what to draw (artists block) sometimes is. So I enlisted a few friends to compile the list. With little direction I asked them to list characters from comics, video games, movies, books and general pop/nerd culture that they found interesting and visually appealing.

The list started out somewhat “conservative” with, “RoboCop, Captain America, Simon Belmont” . Then I asked them for 10 more, and the questions of what this was for started. I explained I wanted a list of random characters that I had never drawn before… This list now includes random and obscure characters like, “Mola Ram, Austin Powers, Goku, and Tasslehof Burrfoot” (it’s ok to Google them if you dont know who they are) and we’re only up to 56 characters so far. If you’d like to add your characters to the list you can do so by adding them in the forum, emailing, facebook, or instagram.

” There’s a myth among amateurs, optimists and fools that beyond a certain level of achievement, famous artists retire to some kind of Elysium where criticism no longer wounds and work materializes without effort “

Ant Invasion

Written some 5+ years ago by my good friend James Smith. It was originally posted in a past forum build on Beast Within Studios. I knew I had printed a hard copy, intending to illustrate the story. However with having moved 6 times over the past few years I had feared it lost.

I found page 2 of the story while unpacking a box of old art and supplies, but couldn’t locate page 1.  I knew I would have to go page by page to find it.. And find it I did! The original story is posted HERE in the forum in it’s original form. The illustrated story can be found HERE in the gallery
