Gotham Girls

Finally finished! These have also been added to my Illustration page.

Gotham Girls Sneak Peek

For my next trick, I will create illustrations to represent each of the five Gotham Girls Roller Derby teams (plus a bonus girl). Why? Seems as good a way as any to keep the ‘ol drawing skills sharp. Also, Heather used to ref, I sometimes ran the score board, and many of our friends are […]

For funsies, I decided to create book cover designs for four classic Victorian horror/science fiction novels. Each title is distilled down to a single basic 2-color design. I may do more as inspiration strikes. I’m also working on a similar idea for Shakespeare plays which I hope to post soon.

Pandora is done!

I finally finished Pandora and added her to the Illustration page.
