Sky Doll for Spitballin. I really wanted to try out the colour palette I had envisioned for this one... I dunno if I nailed what I was picturing but for an exercise, I dont think this turned out too bad!

Spitballin's doing Marvel Zombies, so I'm letting out the inner fangirl in me. In my defense, Hulkling totally shows up in Marvel Zombies vs Army of Darkness (sans his lower half) so this is essentially cannon...
Despite my best efforts, I still had the nightmares after painting this one.

My version of WWII Captain America!
Secretly this is also an outlet for my obsession with the 101 airborne division during WWII, more specifically Easy Company of the 506th PIR which we all know so well through Stephen Ambrose's book Band of Brothers and of course the HBO miniseries of that title
War heroes are so inspirational to me <3

Atom from Urasawa's manga Pluto, based on the story and characters of Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy! Another pick from the sptiballin' comics blog, this time by Meaghan Carter.
Atom is not a character I would have ever chosen to illustrate on my own. Pluto had a very personal and emotional effect on me and is one of my favourite comics, and I could never really show exactly what the story or Atom in particular meant to me in a singular image. Anything I can imagine just sort of falls short of what I would like to convey. Oh well, hope this will do :P

This week marked the launch of Spitballin' Comics, an artist collective sketch blog based out of the Greater Toronto Area. I was added to the contributors as a late addition, and I'm so excited to be a part of such a talented roster of artists. Every week we'll pick a different character from comics and/or general nerd culture for each artist to illustrate their take on. First choice belonged to David J. Cutler with Todd McFarlane's SPAWN!
Not knowing much about Spawn myself I had to resort to a google image search. I was completely baffled by this one cover illustration that kept popping up in which Spawn sported these gigantic angel wings. I still can't be sure if this is even in continuity but I couldn't resist this completely 90's concept of the "redeemed Spawn" for my contribution to this week's Spitballin' choice!
Don't forget to check out all the talented artists over at Spitballin' Comics!!!

Here's a tattoo I recently designed for my Dad. He wanted something symbolic of his ride across Canada, and in his words: his Harley, his country, drawn by his little girl :D
He's informed me that he has the appointment all set up to get it inked this week, I'm excited to see it! My Dad is such a bad-ass :P

So I wasn't a big fan of the designs in Megamind (except Minion - he was great even if he is a little like #1 from Gerard Way's Umbrella Academy), but after seeing the movie and finding it was much better than I had anticipated it would be, well, I couldn't help myself... Plus it's been a while since I've taken the time to relax and just sketch something for the hell of it.
