Gil Thorp, Part 1

A few weeks back, I was contacted by Tribune Media to try out as a replacement artist on their 6-days a week sports strip, Gil Thorp. I didn't get the gig, but it proved to be a lot of fun to try and work within the confines of the strip format. I think drawing a soap opera every day would have been a tremendous learning experience.

If you're curious about learning more about Gil Thorp, I found the This Week in Milford blog to be both informative and hilarious.

(Thanks to "johnw" for the spelling correction on "Thorpe/Thorp!")

Today at the Ursula Wilde Production Diary, we continue our look at the character sketch stage of development.

And on the Athena Voltaire Blog, I post a few more (previously unseen?) commission pieces.

You did not get the gig? Were you too good?

The current illustrator is horrible!

Thanks for the kind words—I had a lot of fun doing the sample!
