Daily Sketch / skeletons / pen on paper / 55 minutes

Fun fact: in an adult human, the skeleton comprises about 14% of the total body weight, and roughly half of THAT weight is water. Incidentally this is my 100th daily sketch worthy of posting.

Lightbulb Zombie at the Gate

Pen on paper, color-tint in Adobe Photoshop ~ 65 minutes


Hit the lights. Somethings moving out there...


MAXIMILLIAN RILKE holds his breath. His brother GREGOR RILKE stands at his side, listening. They stare into the darkness beyond the doorway and hear night sounds. Maximilian is loosely gripping a shotgun by the base of its barrel, the stock resting on his hip.


It’s nothing. We should...


Hush. Listen again.

Maximilian shifts his feet in the snow, getting cold. Being a good brother, he closes his eyes and listens. His eyes pop open at a sharp sound from nearby, like paper being torn from a book. He licks his lips and slowly unhinges the shotgun barrell, exposing the chamber. Reaching into his coat pocket for shells, he feels his brother’s hand on his arm.


Too late for that.

Gregor nods into the darkness. Maximilian squints his eyes and sees a splash of light on the old Model-T next to the barn. It grows, and with it a look of dread darkens Maximilian’s face.

Perelia Quinn lies in wait

Graphite sketch with Adobe Photoshop colors ~ 250 minutes

The girl with the shock of white hair checks her watch again...


PERELIA QUINN fidgets, waiting for her mark. Capella Block’s residents rush around her, snaking between stacks of garbage and freestanding utility pylons. Craning her neck she can see the wide mouth of the West vehicle entrance.  A single-carry takes the corner too fast, it’s rimless wheels chirping across the pavement. It slams to a stop in front of a noodle-shop, and the driver tumbles out into the street. Pretending to yawn, PERELIA raises a wired microphone to her lips, concealed neatly in her palm.


He’s back. He’s had more to drink.


You don’t say? How’s that poor bastard even standing?

The man in the street turns sharply and tumbles over his own feet. Falling to his knees he lets out a vicious curse before lurching upright again.


He’s not, really. What do you want me to do?


Sober him up. The quick way.

The Snow Sisters of Doogan Township

Pen on paper, color-tint in Adobe Photoshop ~ 60 minutes

space_ladies 5.19.09 PMScrap-hunting the Outskirts, the Snow Sisters consider their next meal...


HALCYONE and CORILLA SNOW are hunting for scrap-metal.


Feeding times soon. What are you going to say?


Same as always. If we deserved better food, we’d be shown the way.

A siren sounds in the distance. The sisters stop to listen for a moment.


How long you think that’s going to work?

Break-time in Tunnel K

I drew this late last year and am only now getting around to coloring it. I labored over what to do with the gizmo behind him; I’m still thinking about going in and fleshing out the details of that structure a bit more. Right now it sort of looks like it has googly-eyes. Why the near-monotone green? It was St. Patrick’s Day. Graphite sketch with Adobe Photoshop colors ~ 200 minutes

Notes and sketches from a few talks I attended this spring. I also blew past my 31st birthday, as that fancy gentleman below mentions.
