I MUSTACHE you a question, which way to the PLAYGROUND?

Here's my latest complete work that has been contributing to my lack of updating!:

First, we had to make a peripheral project in my mini comics class. Meaning, we had to make a product that tied in to our style and that we could sell at conventions, etc.
I made a "fancy lad kit": complete with mustache on a stick and an attached monocle.
a classmate (kept anonymous by the smudge tool) models my product
I also completed the mini that I mentioned in my last post!

Rather than printing problems this time, I had the misfortune of getting acquainted with a bad piece of equipment that ended up cutting some things crookedly. BUT! As always, I learned a lot and had a lot of fun making these.
I'm really pleased with how the interiors turned out. Check out these awesomely genderfluid pinups!

Eventually, I'd love to make these pinups into prints and color them. I had so much fun coming up with these!! :D I'm undecided as to I really am into the captions...but for this assignment in particular they worked well.
School will be wrapping up in TWO WEEKS O_O Holy. Moly. Where does the time go...?

Teenage mini comics

Somehow, there are only about three weeks left in the quarter. Time flies!
Since I havent shared this yet, my first mini comic in my minicomics class was designed to be part of an anthology- around the theme "teenagers"
Here are my original pages (prior to being cleaned up in photoshop, with the exception of adjusting levels)

After this, I of course had to set it up in photoshop and print it.  The set up looked like this, and photoshop ate some of my pixels. Sigh.

 Definitely a learning experience- and loving every minute of it! (Aside from the printing/pixel problems)
Next time, Gonna be showing my character designs and some other school work!
Thanks for stopping by <3

not-so-lazy sunday

Aaaaaaand we're back!
I have a thematic sketchbook assignment coming up for my mini comics class, and my idea for that is branching off of this series of pinups I want to do in the future- but for now, I'm looking forward to this sketchbook.

Ideas for titles include: Gender playground, Studies in androgyny, True Androgyny, Male? Female? Both?, Gender Queers, ..... I had some other ones but they seem to escape me now. The pinups would include some kind of clever caption- but I can't decide if I want to include those in the sketchbook. So there's that idea, aaaaand.... sketchbook page!! 

Hoping to be able to post some more sketches next time....and by then I may also have a tumblr dedicated to my more casual/ silly art and I want to start trying to do daily comics. I attempted the hourly comic day- and didn't get all the way through the day, but I will try and post that on that tumblr.
Thanks for stopping by! <3
