I will be debuting a new origami comic at MoCCA Fest ( April 2-3 at Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, NYC): ABRACADABRA, a “magic wallet” mini-comic which has a branching storyline depending on how your “flip/open” the pages.
MoCCAfest was (understandably) cancelled for the second year in a row but – even though I didn’t get to exhibit as I normally would – I was able to participate in Society of Illustrator’s online cosplay-themed Comic and Cartoon Art Week Drink and Draw. Note: if you missed them, some of this week’s panels are available to view on the Society’s YouTube channel.
The primary model, Ariel, put together a bizarre costume representing his interpretation of a demented face-painting supervillain which was clearly intended to be a Joker/Sportsfan analogue so, in my head, I dubbed him The Jock-er even though I don’t remember Ariel actually referring to himself as such.
In addition to Ariel’s Jock-er, a few of the artist participants also wore costumes and agreed to model for us during the breaks.
These are sketches from Julienne’s Studio Collective monthly sketch night with model Tiffany Rae Knight.
Here are some recent (Feb-April 2021) sketches from “Let’s Art!” (model Lefty Lucy’s free, weekly, online sketch night). Lefty chooses a different costume/outfit to model for us each week.
The theme for Society of Illustrators’ pre-Valentine (February) sketch night was “Heartbreakers” with model Logan Laveau under colored lighting in a variety of outfits via Zoom.
Here are some recent (January, February) sketches from costumed model Lefty Lucy’s free “Let’s Art!” online sketch night sessions (every Tuesday night via Zoom).
Here are some of my favorite Sketch Night sketches from December.
Here are sketches from a recent online sketch night with cosplayer Tiffany Rae Knight modeling as Victorian-era Death (of Neil Gaiman’s Endless).
It’s been a while since I last posted some sketches so here are some of my favorites from Lefty Lucy’s “Costumed in Quarantine” sketch nights (FREE every Tuesday night) over the past few months.
The theme of Lefty Lucy’s “Costumed in Quarantine” online sketch night for the entire month of June (five Tuesdays) was “Vintage Style, Not Vintage Values” (a phrase coined by New York–based jazz bandleader Dandy Wellington).
