Hey guys! I've been kind of busy and it's been a little while since I've posted, so here are some comics that I've posted to Tumblr but haven't posted here...the first is digital, but the rest are from my sketchbook. So here, in no particular order are some recent moments from my life:
I've been doing more comics in my sketchbook lately. This one is about yet another weird encounter I had the other night at my local Albertsons. It seems like every time I go there, I see something weird. I did not make any of this dialogue up...these are the exact puns the rather hammy cashier used when I got up to the checkout stand....
I hurriedly left the store with many questions--exactly how many grocery puns does that guy have in his repertoire? Just what is the appropriate response to an unexpected barrage of food-related jokes? And why is it so hard to control my face during awkward situations?
I'm posting this pretty darn late, but Friday was Hourly Comics Day! I decided to draw each hour as a page in my new sketchbook (and I finally got around to scanning them all):
I used a couple of pens, and a variety of rather bleedy markers to ink and color the pages. The style isn't too terribly consistent here, and the execution kind of messy, but I had a lot of fun doing these:
And what the heck, here is the page of warm ups I did (to test out my pens and markers):

Happy Monday, friends! I decided to put up some quick post-it doodles that Carrie and I exchanged today as they were far too silly not to share.
Friday was Carrie's birthday, and a few of us went to grab dinner at a place in Hollywood. Our waitress was a slender girl who wore an incredibly form fitting, low cut top that prominently displayed her obviously enhanced chest. It was seriously distracting...
At some point in the evening, I felt some unnaturally firm, round object rest on my shoulder. After a few moments, I realized that this was what was happening:
I actually don't think she noticed....
Carrie pointed out that I had actually drawn our waitress in too modest a top and reminded me that she was in fact showing way more skin. Here were her hilarious interpretations:
We tried to generally recall what our waitress looked like.
My first attempt:
This was my second attempt:
Carrie's next attempt:
(I freaking love the booblashes..nice touch, Carrie)
If any of the rest of you guys who were there that night want to offer your own interpretation of the subject, please post them or send them to me because I'd love to see your take on this....
It's been a couple of years since I last stopped by the Drawing Club. I'm pretty out of practice and almost didn't end up going, but I happened to read an inspiring blog entry by the amazingly talented, ever insightful Dave Pimentel. I'm really glad I ended up going because despite the initial feelings of insecurity and rustiness, I ended up having a lot of fun.
Here are a few sketches from the night, most of them were drawn with a black Copic sketch marker, and I added a little color to a couple of them with colored pencil/marker:
