Negligent Passing Getaway

It's labor day, and I'm in labor. Giving birth to drawings and comics and bad jokes. I just drew this face as practice and then colored it up to experiment with it. I think it took maybe a half hour. I like how it turned out. I'm not sure where my style is going with some of these things, but I guess that's not really my concern. I'll worry about style when I'm dead.

I'm back to school for the first time in a long time and it's a strange thing. Nothing has really changed but it's all different. It's taking me a minute to get used to the ideas of it all, but I'm happy to be back and in the game and making some use of my time. I like having a schedule.

I traded a copy of the fifth volume of The Caveman Diaries for this drawing. It's by this dude Corey, who, coincidentally enough, I went to school with six years ago the last time I took any classes. I hadn't seen him since then. He approached me at the Normal Love/Giants of Gender/Cave Bear show a couple weeks ago and offered a trade. I think I basically robber the poor bastard. LOOK at this:

Next up is the first panel from the first story from the first issue of this thing called Shiner. More on that to come.
