A few years back, I wanted to make a graphic novel called M.E.R.C. which stands for Merciful Evacuation of Ridiculous Critters. I never ended up writing up the script and doing it. But I still like the concept of the cover for the first chapter!

Sitting on a Sidewalk

Her tears had finally stemmed their flow, but she sincerely wished her bloody nose would do the same. Honestly, how long could it keep bleeding? It had been quite a few hours now, and while it certainly wasn't flooding down her face the constant trickle down her lip and chin was becoming itchy.

"Excuse me, little girl?"She jumped and turned to look at the man who had addressed her, her hazel eyes wide and panicked. She certainly hadn't heard anyone approach her! She leaned back away from him and he stopped his advance, sensing her distrust. After all, it was late, and he was strange. It was only natural for her to be wary even if she was young. Her eyes narrowed and looked him over carefully leaning just a little farther back as he took another step forward."I apologize for startling you, but I was concerned. Are you alright?"She saw his eyes flick from her slightly bruised face and bloody nose down to her scraped knee before returning his attention to her eyes. She frowned and turned her head forward and watching him out of the corner of her eye."I'm not to talk to strangers." came her brusque response as she pulled her knees up towards her chest."Ah," he said, the corner of his mouth twitching up in amusement."Well, I believe I have a way around that!" He took another step forward before lowering himself to sit a few feet away on the curb beside her. "My name is Raven. May I inquire as to yours?"She stared. This was his way around the rule? Her eyebrows furrowed at him in confusion. Honestly, why did he care?"...Azriel. My name's Azriel.""There, see? Now we aren't strangers anymore."

Self Portrait

Self portrait done a few
years ago of myself with
my brain characters from
various stories and Role Plays
that I have participated in.

All of the elves along the
bottom are Drow (dark elves)
The miniatures fellows with
them are Brownies, and the
black negative space guy
does not belong to me,
but to a friend. He just
ties in with the other Drow.

Storm Dingo

Meant to be for this weeks IF topic of "Storm".
A Storm dingo is watching you like a baby!

2D College Course

This image is from one of my old college courses ( 2 Dimensional Class, lotsa fun ) we had to have a set number of images and then use repetition of those images to create a story by doubling them as time went on. 2-4-8-16-32-64

I drew all the images separately to be approved and then compiled it in Photoshop to achieve the effect I wanted. After that they were hand inked onto nice paper and made into a book as per project instructions. It was an interesting project to say the least.

Missed and Moved

So ya'll can see that I haven't been very active lately. In fact, I completely missed last weeks IF topic (much to my consternation, must get back on the wagon!). I should be getting back to the drawing board this week however since I'm a little more settled.
The reason is because last weekend I moved back to my hometown in Vermont! So between trying to get settled into my new environment and my son wanting to be outside in the snow with the dogs, it's been a bit trying. So I will be making a bunch of scheduled posts with some older sketches of mine to fill the gap for a little while. I'll been throwing in new ones now and then, but till I'm back on my feet it's older works.

For a very long time I played World of Warcraft online and as
such I incorporated other real life characters I had created
into the game world. Amber is one such creation.
She is pictured below in her chest piece with her
bronze dragon mount.
