More Horror

Still filling my Kindle with horror stories, here are a few more I’ve enjoyed recently.

Timed drawings

Just started on a 15-week program of creative exercises, taken from a book about cartooning. They range from spontaneous drawing to multi-page comic spreads. This week, I’ve been using a timer.

Rubylith and Zipatone

Daniel Clowes’ “Glossary of obsolete commercial art production techniques” from Fantagraphics’ latest artist edition.

I ate’nt dead

Making excuses for not having updated this thing since August and rambling about creative cycles in the process.

The Horror

I’m binge-reading horror novels this winter. Not a genre I’m familiar with, and I hate horror movies, but ghost stories are cool. These novels have made my commute a lot more fun lately.


No new drawings this week either, but all the more bugs, crows and comic books.

Joyous Exploration

Macaronis, testicles and a couple of new sketchbook spreads.
