UFEST 2010


Ouch, it's been over a month since my last post.

It has been a CRAZY 2010 so far. The biggest news being that I now have a full time job. Not scraping by freelancing has been a nice change. Lets hope it stays that way.

I'm slowly getting back on schedule and hope to get moving forward on NW2G very soon. Issue one is inked and scanned, waiting for colour. I think I'll thumbnail the rest of the story before I get back to pencilling.

You can see a sneak peak of one of the pages on my recently started twitter account...

I'll post a different one here later this week.

Until then, here is a poster I recently completed for KUPD's next UFest. This is sans logos, titles, etc...

I was trying to do my best to paint like Alberto Mielgo. As you can see, I am no threat to his status of AWESOME.

Perhaps. But you continually threaten my own peace of mind. ;)

Well rendered guitars always catch my eye, due to years of seeing guitars drawn by illustrators who couldn't be arsed flipping open a book for research, but it's a shame you've given the Les Paul an Epiphone-style headstock rather than the more graceful Gibson shape. A point totally lost on everyone except my fellow guitar perverts.

Thanks Dominic.

Fear not McNally. I am no threat to your status of awesome either.

Hey Mark! I know nothing about guitars so unfortunately, I had no idea about the other style of headstock. I'll have to try that one next time.

I have to use major reference for guitars, they're HARD to draw. Or at least, a lot of complex subtle details to keep track of.

Kick A$$ news. Glad you've made the jump to a full-time gig! Your guitars rock - Olivia & I just wrapped up a freelance gig designing a logo that involved a guitar....we don't know anything about guitars either :)
