Bear Ears and Beers

I’m taking an art class to learn how to write and draw comics. The first assignment was to draw a 2 page autobiographical comic. TWO. PAGES. That seems like so much. I looked through some of the other students early submissions and they were REALLY great. I’ve been so stressed out and nervous about this and I wasn’t sure what to do or what to write about and I don’t know how to draw comics and I’m not a good enough artist and what am I doing in this class in the first place and WHEEEEW. So much inner critic monkey on my back. I finally shoved a banana in his pie hole to shut him up and got to work. This is not the greatest comic in history, but I’m very proud of it. I thought it was going to take forever, but once I had my ideas together and actually got to work on it, it flowed. I definitely need some work to get my narrative to be more compelling and cohesive, and I need to practice using space more effectively, but overall, I’m happy with how this turned out. I hope you like it, too. You can click each page to see the larger version.

Things Kids Say!

Here’s #4 in my comic series, Who’s Going to Read This Crap Anyway? This was a real conversation I had with my 12 year old nephew, Jesse. Maybe this is old school for you parents out there, but this one blew me away! Enjoy!

Good Morning!

I drew another comic! Here’s #3 in my series, Who’s Going to Read This Crap Anyway? I wasn’t sure about posting this one. There are things I really like about it, but some things I dislike about it, too. In the end I decided that I like it overall. This is how my morning typically starts. Enjoy!

Who’s Going to Read this Crap Anyway?

I was going through an old sketchbook the other day and I came across some comic strips I drew about 6 months ago. I was thinking of doing a series of comics, and these were my first ideas for it. The title was to be “Who’s Going to Read this Crap Anyway?” I did a couple of comics, but I wasn’t very happy with them, so I decided to move on to other things. Looking back, I think they are kind of awesome, so I decided to post them here for you to enjoy. 🙂 This is the intro comic.

I have one other, and I’ll post it later this week. In the meantime, I’d love to hear your thoughts. What do you think of this comic? Would you like to see more?
