Sketch on a Blank Comic Variant

Picked this one up off of eBay, blank.  But it arrived bent and creased.  I was pissed.  Anyway I thought I would use this one for my first comic book cover sketch.  It is very different than a sketch card but it was an okay experience.  Definitely something I want to do more of.

WorkSpace Project: Chris Thorne | Proxart

Proxart is a website that focuses on Art, Culture and Community. They have a segment called The Workspace Project and they recently featured me. :)
Chris Thorne is a Santa Clarita-based visual artist. And like most artists, he has a day job. And also like most artists, he has a nerdy side. I mean, really, what artist doesn’t like Star Wars?

Okay, back now... :) Captain America!

Okay, I kbnow I have been away for a while.  I have been busy (taxes and such) but I have some things in the hopper that I don;t think I can talk about yet, so I have been quiet.  I have been doing some commissions and some cards for the Treasure Chest of Art benefit at CECE and this is the first of those cards.

Captain America.  Circa WWII and the new Movie.  :)

Process of the Joker sketch card

It took some pics of the card as I was making it, not as many as I wanted, as I drew, I forgot to stop and take a picture.  But you get the idea of the process of pencils and colors and then finishing the colors.  I hope you like it.

Alexander Frolov

I am a hockey fan, but I don;t seem to do many sports-related sketches or sketch cards.  I am trying to change that.  I have done a few baseball sketch cards and this is my first hockey sketch.  Alex Frolov was drafted by the LA Kings but never really achieved all that was expected of him.  He is playing for the NY Rangers now.

WIP The Fireman

This is the WIP of my new piece, The Fireman, inspired by my friend Jamie who works for the Las Vegas FD.  Comments and crits appreciated.

Another page from the sketchbook project

Another page from my The Sketchbook Project Sketchbook.  FALLING.  I am really loving this, I think I am getting better and quickly getting wrinkles in fabric.

Another page from The Sketchbook Project

Here is another page from my sketchbook project FALLING.  I am working in some greys to distinguish parts of the structure from other parts.  I hope it works.

WIP - Fireman

This is a work-in-progress, I was inspired by one of my good friends Jamie, who is a firefighter in Las Vegas.  She is such a great person, a firefighter, mother to twins and braver than I could ever be.  I wanted to do something for all firefighters.  This is this first round of inks, I imagine it will change but it seems to be coming along for now.

The Sketchbook Project 2010

I have finally started my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project, put on by The ArtHouse Co-Op Check them out here:   da'lsdkj'adijja'dkmc'ad

The rundown is this:
Thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the country.

After the tour, all sketchbooks will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be barcoded and available for the public to view.
I ordered my sketchbook and picked a theme of 'Nightmare' so everything in this will have to do with that.  My first sketch is the one above, falling.
