Inktober 15

Here is another Inktober drawing. I'm way behind on doing 30 drawing in 30 days, though in thirty days I have done a ton of drawings for the strip and more, but I'll keep going till I get 30 done anyway.

 I decided to try the inktober challenge this year, and with a week left I think it will be inkvember before I get 30 done. Its a lot of fun and its also great to see what other artists are doing. here are three of my drawings so far and you can see the rest over on my tumbler.
 I've had a great response to these piece s so far, and many people have wanted to buy them so maybe I'll fins a way to do a book or something down the road. What I enjoy is working fast and free with ink, using pen and ink, but also sponges, tooth brushes, beat up brushes, foam brushes and even a bamboo pen, all kinds of things to make marks with. Ink is certainly the medium I have had the most experience with besides a pencil going all the way back to my early teens when I started trying to do pen and ink drawings.

Judge Parker Process

Here is the latest Sunday I finished for Judge Parker showing the arrival of Godiva at the airport. These types of Sunday strips make me really wish for the old days where the strips were bigger and the originals were as well, especially with the second panel on the second tier.

I inked this week all with Pitt pens as I was rushing the deadline. I'll be working on 2015 strips in about 10 days and that will start me on my 6th year on the strip--how time flies, yet its funny I've yet to draw the JP clan in any holiday celebration---though I have drawn a X-mas strip every year featuring our soldiers and those who serve.

In other comic related news I am doing two issues of something for DC( pencils and inks) that I can't announce yet, but it should be fun! I might even have some other comic related news to announce soon.
