Sketchbook Monday on a Friday.

I'm just dedicated to getting out a lot of old imagery. This is from an old sketchbook, January circa 2009, with a rapidograph.

I have finished inking my comic....sort of. Technically all the pages are inked, but now I have to go through the slightly harrowing process of revising the work which requires a lot more inking, re-inking, and copious amount of designer white gauche. So I put it all on the wall where I can see it more clearly. Even within the making of this book there has been a very steep learning curve and I frown upon the early pages, the ones made before I relearned how to become wholly comfortable with my nib pen again. Revising those pages is particularly painful. Hopefully this process can be finished in the next couple days. I'm ready for the whole process to move on to scanning. Then printing, binding, and sharing.

If I can be almost embarrassingly honest, I will admit that it is times like this when I think to myself, "I'm not a liar. This is not just a bunch of talk. I actually make comics. I actually do what I say I do." And then after momentary self-satisfaction, I let the flood gates of self hatred open wide so I can get started on some real art.

Also I am in full fledged MoCCA mode. As should you be. So don't forget:

Sketchbook Monday + TONY

It's not Monday, yet, but who cares? Here's a sketchbook drawing I liked. I drew it last January with my rapidograph. Also I had a Photo Finish in last week's Time Out New York. You can see the entire piece here and my art work (sans photo) is below.

I am almost done inking my comic. I am practically giddy with the idea that in a matter of weeks I will be holding my book, bound and printed, in my hands.
