Last year I was approached by writer Jesse Young to illustrate a 4-page comic story based on an idea he had developed. Yesterday, all 4 pages went up and I’m super stoked with how the comic pages turned out. Below are the thumbnails I created for the story, based on Jesse’s script. And here are two pages from the completed four page story. Jesse has worked with several artists in creating fantastic short format comics.

Below are three stages of my process work for this Ford Fairlane automobile.
More Drawlloween art… featuring a mummy, skeleton, gore, rat, and candy.
Combined a few entries from Drawlloween into one composition. This particular one addresses Mask, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Skull.
I’ve always encouraged new artists to practice by drawing in other artists’ styles. There’s a lot you can learn from doing this. Above I drew Ratfink – a character I drew upon request. I hope I did the character some justice.
Two for the price of one. And what happened to Day 9? I need to redo it. -Krishna
