Sketches and Drawings and Comics

It's weird because when I was a kid I drew all of the time.  I wanted to be a comic artist.  Of course I didn't have the patience.  I gave up and went on to music. . . and then video . . . and then . . .  actually I try a little bit of every thing!  But I still like to draw. . . and I never really stopped drawing.  I just did it as doodles on pages at my desk.  I was always a frustrated artist. . .

The problem is I still have a comic somewhere in me, and I have been developing stories for years but I haven't found an artist who shares my vision.  so in the background I have been plugging along at practicing and trying to find characters, as I write.  It is fun!

I say all of that to say this.  I have been drawing again.  Heroes convention has got me thinking creatively again.  Now that is not to say I don't still need an artist, because I do (and if you are an artist who would like to listen to my ideas let me know.)  I am not a great artist but, I have to say I have found the joy of sketching again.  Learning techniques etc. . . So here are some sketches I have been doing the last few days just playing around with some new stuff.



  1. I like all of those Ashley but that last one is the coolest.

    1. Thanks Jboy! These were all just kind of exercises. The Two spaceman sketches were just me playing around, the third one is just a page of thoughts I have been working on, characters etc. . . just to try to get myself out of thinking from a TV perspective and into thinking from a comic perspective!
