This week's theme over at Comic Twart is The Rocketeer (yes, I'm the one responsible for the theme). My finished inks can be found here.
I initially wanted to do a scene with Betty lunging with the helmet and jetpack, with Peavy, Cliff and Butch the bulldog somewhere in the scene. Additionally, I wanted to do a second drawing, spotlighting Cliff in uniform, flying (and maybe montage elements from the two series in there, like Jonas, Marco, Ham & Monk, the flying wing, etc). However, it was waaaaay too ambitious to think I could do both images, so I added Cliff flying as a vignette in the Betty piece and the problem was solved.

Here's another image from the Gentlemen, The King! pitch.
Also, be sure to check out Comic Twart, a collective art blog that I'm participating in. The project had its origin via Twitter, and that's where the name came from: TWitter ART. So get your mind out of the gutter.
Every week, Comic Twart will focus on a character and each of us will draw that character. This week's star is Zorro!
I'm humbled and flattered to be a part of it, but I'll still be posting a bunch of stuff here, of course.

My lawyer represents the Damon Runyon estate and asked me to work up a couple of pages of samples for a pitch for Runyon's story, Gentlemen, The King! Here's the first page.
The scene takes place in jail(s), but for the purpose of the pitch, the characters' faces have to be visible, so when Jason has time to color this up, I'll have him drop cast shadows of prison bars across the faces.

During the summer, I took my sketchbook with me when my son and I went swimming. Here's an example of what I did. I see a bunch of flaws, but it was still good to be able to get back into the swing of life drawing--especially since my schedule (or bank account!) didn't permit taking a class or a workshop at the time.
Interestingly enough, when you have a sketchbook at a public pool, every woman will think that it's her you're drawing.
