Good Days Comic

Good Days Comic, India Ink on Comic Board, Graphic Illustration course 2014

This was one of our first assignments for the class and one of the first times seriously trying out a comic format in a traditional media. I had a lot of fun especially drawing the puppy. (But of course I would) One of the most challenging things was trying to depict the public bus transportation and not make it look too detailed.

Athenian River God  ( Illissos or Eridanos), West Pediment of Parthenon ( The Eris “contest” of Athena and Poseidon). The Acropolis Museum, Greece, 2014

This was from my Summer Study Abroad in Greece back in 2014. This particular sketch was done at the newly constructed acropolis museum with the pediment plaster copies. It’s a real shame that they weren’t the originals. They would have looked magnificent in that space.

Weekly Sketch Challenge

I have recently begun a personal challenge to get out of my artistic burnout/block that has been plaguing my art on and off over the last few years, I have started a challenge with a few friends about making a prompt every week that everyone has to sketch, and then we show each other, and if one person doesn’t, hopefully our sketches will inspire them to do one too!

This week’s prompt that I came up with was:

“Something you use in the morning”

If you would like to join in on our weekly sketch challenge, keep coming back every week for a prompt and post your results below!
