I just realized that I never posted this! This was actually the final project for my sequential class last year. It was the first two pages of a web comic I’d wanted to start with a writer friend this December, but it just wasn’t working out at the time. However, the game plan is now to redesign the characters, rework the plot and start it this summer! :D So hopefully be on the lookout for that… someday. XD

I was getting really fed up with the lack of overall quality in a piece I was rushing though and decided to back the hell up and redo part of it and it was a vast improvement. The “after” image is (obviously, I would hope) the first one. So yeah. I really need to start putting more quality and effort into an entire image instead of just the main focus, because as you can see, it really pays off. XD

Started this a long time ago but just finished it recently. It’s about “Internet White Knighting.” Goes with this article: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/19/magazine/the-online-avengers.html

This is going to be the first of a string of portraits of Kurt Cobain. This is for an assignment, and I’ve been planning to draw Kurt for it all semester, not realizing the timing was going to work out with so much buzz about him, from the 20th anniversary of his death, the “reopening” of his case, and the induction of Nirvana into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, all having just passed. 
I’m sorry to anyone who follows me who isn’t a Nirvana fan, you’re going to get spammed with a few of these. When I did my sketches I couldn’t just pick one, and I think it’s going to take a few attempts before I figure out which I want to turn in/put in my portfolio, and I need practice doing portraits in “my style” anyway.
And besides that, I’m just really enjoying drawing someone I really admire. I’ve been listening to Nirvana since I was very little, but more recently I’ve become sort of fascinated with Kurt. Particularly after watching the documentary, About a Son (which I highly recommend) over this past summer. Anyway, I know he was a deeply complicated and flawed person, but every depiction I see of him he always looks so sad or apathetic. I think that’s frustratingly one dimensional. If you listen to enough interviews you start to see this sort of child like innocence in him. So I’m deliberately making sure he looks happy in the portraits I’m doing. It’s pretty clear he was an extremely soft and fragile person… So, not to be pretentious about it, but I’m hoping to show his softer side a bit.
