I’m happy to reveal the completed cover for Red Flag, the comic I’m premiering at MeCAF in a few weeks:
In between some major projects, I’ve been working on 5×7-inch sketch cards as a stress reliever. I’ve done about 15 of these so far, mainly in Copic marker and in a few different styles. I worked on these yesterday—Team Rocket from Pokemon, and then an original character of my own in a scene from the story I am working on:
As you might know, I’m going to be away for the next few weeks as I’m getting married in a few days (yay!) and heading out on my honeymoon immediately after (double yay!) I don’t want to leave several weeks of radio silence from me though, especially as I have something cool to share with you.
If you’re not already following my Facebook page — and you can do so by clicking riiiiight here — I encourage you to head on over right now and keep your eyes peeled. I’ve scheduled a bunch of posts while I’m out to share with you a neat little illustration project I did specifically for my wedding reception: I made custom table cards (the little signs on tables that indicate what number it is, so folks know where they should sit).
Each table card features one of my or my fiance’s favorite fictional characters.
The table cards are double-sided, one side has my character, the other features my fiance’s. 15 unique black and white drawings in all with final dimensions of about 3 by 5 inches.
We figured it would give people something to talk about, especially when each table is themed — one table card features Favorite Star Trek Captains, another is Favorite Omnipotent Interdimensional Beings… I had a lot of fun drawing these, needless to say.
You’ll get to see each of the final table numbers on my Facebook page spread out over the next few weeks. For a taste of what’s to come, I posted a few previews on my Instagram:
The posts will start in exactly a week – this coming Sunday (so my guests get a chance to see these images first!) Every other day afterward I’ll share a new table card, so head on over to my FB page and you won’t miss a thing!
[edited later to add] And here they all are — click to see all the images!
