I am now happy to announce the completion of shoujo comedy one-shot comic KISS FROM A ROSE. KISS FROM A ROSE is a collaboration project with the amazing Danielle DeMartini and the fabulous Caitlin Like.
The cover (by Caitlin) can be seen on deviantArt!
There will be more information soon, including ordering information and convention appearances with my good friend Melanie, but right now I’d like to offer a sneak peek into the development of the lead villain’s design:
Calling all of my posts “sketch of the day” was getting confusing, so I’m stopping that nonsense right now. I can only imagine that in a few weeks out of desperation I’ll be cannibalizing lyrics from songs for titles or something. This particular sketch is from a series I’m trying to work out. It is actually 6 feet by 6 feet large, drawn partially in frustration after one class where the only crit I got was “you should make it bigger.” SO I DID.
In other awesome news, two of my illustrations accompany N.K. Jemisin’s story “The Trojan Girl” in this quarter’s Weird Tales #357. Order your copy here!
I really enjoy drawing hands!
I drew this on the bus on the way to one of my internships last week, then scanned it and tried a new screentoning method (new for me, anyway!) on it. I like how it turned out. And it’s me! Wearing earrings! I really love hoop earrings, both how they look and wearing them.
I have exciting news coming up! I can’t talk about it in detail just yet, but it has to do with book design, art, invading aliens, and my other internship! This has been a busy term so far and looks to get busier, but it’s been awesome so far.

Last sketch of 2010. Working on refining the black-and-white style into something more easily legible with actual shading.
