Here's some screen capture video of me drawing digitally. Photoshop and a Wacom Cintiq 21UX. The results of these two videos have been printed for old-school inking. Total "real" time: 2 hours 55 mintues. Time for you to watch: roughly 10 minutes. :-) 

Started with a sketch I did on paper, which sucked, so I scanned it and then drew on top of it. You'll see it pop up now and again. 

  • Listening to: score for EDGE OF TOMORROW
  • Reading: The Massive
  • Watching: Venture Bros & Arrested Development
  • Playing: with my daughter
  • Eating: less
  • Drinking: iced tea (always always always)

See? Up there? That me, looking up from the drawing board and/or computer. I have stayed up so long working, without sleep, that I've drifted off somewhere in between the here and the hereafter. It's bright. I usually like to have good sunlight from which to work but this is a little ridiculous. I can barely see a thing and I totally forgot my sunglasses. Poop.

But I'm happy to be here. What? I know I'm not supposed to start a sentence with a conjunction; call it creative license. Anyway, like I said, I'm happy to be here, now, which is good because that's the only two places one can ever be. I read that somewhere. It was a good book, whatever it was. I'm sure I would remember it fondly if I hadn't forgotten it. And yes, I've been waiting to use that line for like fifteen years now.

Okay, I've got to get back to drawing stuff or I'll never get paid. I'm hungry. And apparently easily distracted. Another sentence started with a conjunction. Third one actually. Maybe I'll check out some Daily Deviations...

Current Residence: A condo somewhere in the greater Chicago area
Favourite genre of music: Movie scores (yes, movie scores)
Favourite style of art: Good
Operating System: Still working, thank goodness!
MP3 player of choice: ipod
Shell of choice: I guess I'm old 'cause I don't know how to answer this. :-)
Skin of choice: my wife's (you know it!)
Favourite cartoon character: Brock Sampson
Personal Quote: pull my finger... (an oldie but goodie)

Nice ink work!  (the digital stuff is great too...I'm just partial to traditional inks)  I have to admit I thought your screen name was just a a play on "pen and ink" :)

Thanks for the kind words! The name is actually just a play on "pen" and "ick", hahaha. Just kidding - that's my real last name, for better or worse. Not the "art" part. I DID add that bit. I'm working on a five issue mini series and a graphic novel currently and you'll be happy to know that I'm doing all the inks traditionally.  :-)

I think so. Let me check. If not I'd be happy to draw you a new one just like it.
