Here are a few sketch covers I drew up. For those who don’t know what a sketch cover is, it’s a special “variant” edition of a comic book title that comes with an extra cover left blank with the comic title’s logo. It’s meant to be drawn on. Some people take them to comic conventions. Typically getting an artist they like to draw the title character on the cover directly. If they have the money and patience, some get the creators or artist of the title to draw on it. I use them as drawing breaks. When working on heavy personal projects I get a little tired of drawing my own junk and get a wild hair to draw another creator’s character in between. What better medium to draw on right?
I’ve been asked to do commissions, but I typically turn it down. These are just fun monotony breakers. Drawing them for someone else defeats the purpose for drawing on them in the first place. This may make no sense to anyone else. Basically, I want to draw just what I want for fun. That being said, just drawing the character on the cover can be boring. This gives me a chance to be a little creative. Going too far from “character” has become a bit of a fail for me. I try to use compositions the character might use. I feel like maybe I went on too much of a rant on this, so here are the dang drawings.

Practice makes adequate. Another page complete for My Emo Vortex art book project. This drawing is called the Maniac Training Course. A course where the mentally disturbed get proper training on how to be a more efficient Maniac. Taught by the pros in the industry, this week long course teaches one the ways of the Manic in terms of posture, stalking, obscene calling, knife wielding and a truly authentic maniac grin just to name a few. For the low price of one measly soul you may qualify for training in a booming industry! Sky is the limit in pay! The perks alone are worth the investment. A new life could be just a pentagram away! Act now, instructors are limited!

Learning how to color. I know a a little. It’s mostly through self discovery and button pushing. I know there is an easier way to do things. Unfortunately my personality insists on learning the most difficult. I’m not really sure why, but I trust my self conscious has a philosophy. It always seems to.
Anyway, here is a bowl heads gone mad with technology. I used this guy (uncolored) for my handmade ink book called “Have A Neat Summer” I only printed 60 for a show I did. Still have a about 59 I’ll use to little the table of the next event I do.
