100 Watercolors #5: Seeking Solace


Well, I'm back in Vermont, and so it's back to the 100 Watercolors challenge! I've got one new illustration project in the works, but I'll probably keep going on these watercolors for the next couple of weeks at least. See you next week for theme number six!

Two New Alecs

If you have ever checked the homepage of my other website, you might have noticed that I have a few different variations on the drawing of myself, so that I can adjust it accordingly, depending on what's going on in my life at the moment. This week I drew two new variations of myself!

One has much shorter hair (and shorts as well!) I recently cut off all of my hair, and my plan is to never cut it again, until my graphic novel Basewood is complete! I guess I'll have to draw some new variations of myself every few months, to keep up with my hair growth.

The other one is a new rain drawing. The old one showed me in my red and blue raincoat, but now I am the proud owner of a DRAGON Rain Coat! This one is a lot more fun. :)

Well, I will be back in Vermont for next week's post, so I suspect I will dive back in on the 100 Watercolors challenge. Until then!

Robin's Nest


This week I'm taking another short break from the 100 Watercolors to show this spot illustration I just finished. It will be used on a Baby Shower invitation, for a woman named Robin (of course!) My instructions were to make the robin plump and cute.

I'm off to Seattle for a week to visit my family and to attend a wedding. So next week's post will be from the road. Until then!

100 Watercolors #4: Dark


Here is this week's watercolor! I guess it is kind of similar to last week's painting, though the emphasis is reversed...

In other news, I've finished lettering the forthcoming French edition of PHASE 7. I'm also working on another small illustration project, which I will share eventually. Until then!

100 Watercolors #3: Light


Well, I've moved to Vermont! I'm not all the way unpacked and settled in, but enough so that I broke out my watercolors tonight to paint the next theme!
