My month of “DrawMo” has turned into “DrawLess”.  I’ve been busy promoting and getting things ready for my book signing and haven’t been drawing as much.  The one drawing I did do this week I am quite proud of.  I told one of the third grade students in the class I was volunteering for that I would draw my favorite, The Incredible Hulk.  Not too bad for my first superhero.

Okay, okay…I’ve also been playing A LOT of Majora’s Mask this weekend.  Because I am obsessed, I will show you again the Skull Kid I did earlier this month.  First, you can see what it looked like before I colored it in.

All done!

See you next weekend!

DrawMo Week One

0

Inktober has come to a close.  NaNoWriMo week one is over without me.  I’ve been involved in a self-imposed “DrawMo” instead.  I haven’t made my goal of doing a drawing per day as I had intended, but I have done more drawing in a week since before my book wrapped.  I haven’t gotten into doing any sketches for my next book yet.  I have been using the time to practice using Christopher Hart’s book, Manga Mania: Occult and Horror and daily drawing assignments from @Sketch_Dailies on twitter.  I would like to share with you my DrawMo drawings from this past week.

I used a combination of markers and crayons, especially for the last one.  I still can’t find my nice Prismacolor colored-pencils, or fancy expensive markers from college.  As new art supplies are not in my budget right now, I’ve been working with what I have.  I love to color and the crayons offer more color choices than the small set of markers I own and are good for blending.

Don’t forget three weeks from tomorrow is My Book Signing.  I’m debating whether or not to have prints of some of my drawings for sale in addition to my book.  I haven’t been too pleased with the quality of prints I’ve done in the past, so if you have any recommendations of a company to go through please let me know!

I’m making preparations for my next comic book show and book signing at the end of November. I have a favor to ask to those of you who have already purchased my book. Could you please send me a selfie (silly, creative, normal, whatever u comfy with) of you with the book so I can make a collage for my table? I would also like to post the picture on fb and tag you in it to reach a broader fan base. Thank you soooo much! Please send photo to: thesickrosevampires@gmail.com

And if you haven’t ordered the book yet, what are you waiting for?  😉
