Apocalypse comics

Years ago, I did a lot of illustrations for White Wolf's rpg Werewolf: The Apocalypse, hands down my favorite of the World of Darkness game lines (and not just because my brother was the line developer at the time). Recently, Onyx Path has been revisiting the classic World of Darkness through Kickstartered deluxe editions. Last year saw a very successful Vampire: The Masquerade 20th Anniversary edition, and this year its Werewolf's turn. I got to collaborate with my brother again, this time on the opening comic, a return to the characters from the comics story in the original edition (when Tony DiTerlizzi did the art chores. I wonder whatever happened to that kid?).
Here's a sample of the 22 page comics story. If you want to read the whole thing, you can get the giant sized book in both digital and print form at DriveThruRPG.

Life drawing

I've been keeping up with the life drawing sessions lately, even doing a few of them in my moleskine:

Sketchbook skritches

Most of my stuff these days is done digitally, through my wacom Cintiq, but I do have a trusty moleskine notebook that I dip into from time to time. I don't pick it up as often as I should, and I can go weeks, or sadly, months sometimes between sketches. I wanted to start capturing whats in here, hopefully as a goad to be more active with it, so I started scanning. When I come back to the sketchbook after a while, I tend to start with a new page, hence all the empty space on some of these pages. I should be filling them up more! This particular sketchbook was started a couple of years ago, and I'm not even halfway through it.
Kids, learn from my mistakes. Eat your breakfast, don't do drugs, and draw in your sketchbooks more often!
