Steampunk and vampires and gladiators, oh my!

Portfolio ::::: Agent ::::: Store ::::: Livejournal ::::: Fanfiction




So, I have a big deadline coming up for "Astonishing Adventures" Issue #5.  Lots of work to do: I have an article about toga porn to write, a cover with gladiators to paint, and four black and white illustrations to draw for two stories.  One's a steampunk story, and the other involves vampires.  W00t!

Here's a link to the previous issue, #4- I did 4 black and white interior illustrations for that as well.  Go and check it out!

Hey, I'm always up to see another awesome artist!

As for steampunk... It's a cool idea, in theory, but I haven't seen much so far in the steampunk genre that actually works as a story. What I've seen, for the most part, seems to place gimmicks over character, and that's annoying. Plus I guess I'm too much of a historical purist to get too into the idea, but if I'm being paid to draw gears and sci fi Victorians, I'm always happy to take the money! ;P

As for the vampire story, the visuals are going to be more noir and Edward Hopper than anything Anne Rice-y or Twilight-esque. After all, the first picture is going to be in a retro Twin Peaks style diner! :D

Toga porn? There's no way I'm not going to ask what the heck that is!

Here's my original "toga porn" entry I wrote on my LJ, that will explain all about it. [link] The article is basically going to be an expansion on that. :XD:
