Pinup lady


Behind the cut: pinup-lady with colors inspired by Meghan Trainor's body-positive music video for "All About That Bass". I don't usually listen to much pop, but this song has clever lyrics with a great message, so I'm all for it!

Warning: semi-nudity of aforementioned pinup lady. Yes, there is nipp-lage. Young 'uns beware.

MBTMI

So, I finally joined tumblr. Mostly to look at gifs of cats being jerks and red pandas being red pandas. 

I'm also making an effort to turn the time I spend on public transportation (at least 2 hours a day, five days a week) into something other than wasted time. It's called MBTMI. 

So I've been taking photos on my phone of places I pass on the train, and making drawings of them. With the weather being what it is (and with the MBTA being what it its...) I'm also posting some bitchy little sketch-comics about being cold and public transportation sucking. 

So here's some building sketches, some bitchy winter comics and a photo I took from inside a train. 

Enjoy.

The Gabriellas

Mega-excited about working on a comic with my super-pal, Matt Aucoin! He's writing the badass story of a trio of teen girls. In a punk band. Who go to Catholic school. Who hunt monsters. Also, it's the 1950s. There is no element to this comic that is not awesome.


I'm lucky enough to get to do the pencils! Having a great time working with Matt, so I thought I'd give y'all a little taste of it:

A couple panels from the pencils so far:



Some preliminary character sketches:





Some ideas for weaponized instruments:


If everything stays on schedule, the first four pages of the first story will debut in DoubleThink at MeCAF in May. More to come, hope you can check it out!
