P5 Creative!

Goodness! How could I have NOT posted about this sooner?!?!



drawMechanics has re-formed into P5 Creative! Please check out the new site, new art and all that jazz! Here are some well written blurbs...

[VINCENT]: In case you haven't heard the studio formerly known as draw:MECHANICS has now been revamped, rejiggered, and reborn as the [P5]CREATIVE. Welcome to our new home! It's a little messy as we're still moving. Hope you don't mind.

We'll leave all the gory details of the change to the dusty annals of history. What's most important now is that with death comes new life and, I believe, we have that in spades. We're still the same old cartoonists, designers, and creative beasts we always were, but, with hard lessons learned and renewed energy, we're moving forward to the future.

One thing we're going to try and focus on in our new clothes is more and regular posts to our online home. To that end, some of us have staked our claim to particular days of the week. On that day we'll post. What will we post? It could be anything. What we're working on at the moment, our thoughts on the day, a mini-review of what we're reading or watching at the time (like how the heck did DC actually pull of their universe reboot and make it work?). You never know what you're going to get. So, keep coming back and we'll keep giving you new things to look at and/or ponder. 
The studio title "P5" comes from the tools that we all use in creating: pencils, pixels, paint, pens, and paper. It also refers to the number of the founders of this little group. Double meaning, see? Aren't we clever?

Our hope with the studio and the new blog is to build up our creative strengths as well as our experience together in this industry. We span a wide variety of styles, but have come together out of our mutual respect for each other and our creative visions. Take a look at our blog, share it with your friends and family. We'll be posting regularly the things that we're working on, so please bookmark us and keep coming back. We've got a lot in store for y'all!

24 Hour Comic Day - 2011

Thankfully Fantastic Comics was around to host this event. Not as many people as last year but I'm glad I got to do it and I'm not even feeling too tired. Oh but the most important part - I finished 24 pages... mostly. Some of them look like crap but this is one story I do plan on cleaning up and finishing. I thought I'd post the ones I could scan (some pages are 9" x 12" and the others are 11" x 17") with my regular sized scanner before I continue working on them. Please forgive the fact that not all the pages are there and that they are therefore out of order. Soon enough because I love the idea of this being a finished product. This story will be dedicated to Katie and Michael Bryant. Onward!

Hello Blog! Ignored much?

So much transition has been in occurrence and I am still in the thick of it. A few days of emotional swirl, left to my own devices and perhaps a few glasses of wine and attempts at drawing - here we go...

Intimidation...

The Blank Page - My worst enemy...

Getting started...

Warming up with... f**k, I don't know what...
 Reference ...

Reference, yes... riiiiiight...
Aaaaaand (sad) END...

No comment other than... I SUCK at drawing monsters.




Did anything come of this "drawing session"? No, not really... but I DID draw and I will continue to do so EVERY NIGHT. I may not always post because most likely a lot of them will be as stupid and sad as this. Late!
