Watercolors!!

I have sat down and made a list of things to draw, learn and accomplish this summer. Things are moving smoothly with my Oni book and pitches I'm working on(accomplishments!), and I'm researching lots of different characters/stories for pinups I plan on doing over the next few months (draw!).

As far as what I've been wanting to learn, I took up knitting last fall, and I keep practicing my Photoshop coloring skills (and, one day, I'll spring for that parkour tutor). The big thing that I've been wanting to learn is WATERCOLORING. There are so many different watercolor styles and techniques, and some of my friends (Cara McGee and FalynnK, I'm looking at you two) are awesome painters, and their watercolors are so inspiring! Cara and I finally made a watercoloring date this past week, and it's been going pretty awesome.

I have been wanting to do some fanart of this anime called Puella Magi Madoka Magica that Cara turned me on to, and this was the perfect excuse.
My first watercolor EVER. History, guys.


Second watercolor EVER. Even more history.


Third watercolor EVER EVER. This will be on the test.


The last one I did (so far). This one's of Puella Mami, which if you watch the show you probably know. But, I hadn't written her name on there, so.

I am really pleased with my results so far. I've never considered myself to be much of a colorist, but I think watercolors may be the medium for me. Or, at least, they're a gateway medium into the crazy world of putting water on colors and colors on paper.

Interview up on Good Comics For Kids!

Hey, guys! I've had the pleasure of getting to know Snow Wildsmith since I met her on FCBD this year, and she just posted an interview that she conducted with me. For some info on how I got into comics and my influences and whatnot, go here.

Heroes Con 2011

I am going to start by saying that this was, by far, the best Heroes Con I've been to yet. I had a table on the corner between Evan Dorkin and Chris Schweizer, and right across the aisle from John Arcudi (who is writing B.P.R.D.) and Ryan Sook.

I got a lot of action at my table, got to talk to some of the coolest people in comics, and bought lots and lots and lots of stuff. I did lots of commissions and sketchbook pieces, and I sold a bunch of minis. I put some of the art I did this past weekend in this post, but I forgot to take pictures of everything, so there is a good chunk of art that's not here. To accommodate for that, I plan on doing a crazy amount of work this summer, so be prepared for lots of updates!

I did a Husk on the blank Avengers cover (pictured above) for a super nice guy named Jon.



I did this Hellboy (9"x12") for the art auction on Saturday. It was my first submission to the auction, and seeing all of the beautiful pieces this year inspired me to do something larger and with color for next year's auction (some of my favorite pieces were done by Brian Stelfreeze, Andrew Robinson, Eric Canete, Robbi Rodriguez, and Chris Stevens, but there were so many good entries that it's hard to remember them all.


A 4"x6" Harry Potter for my friend FalynnK's birthday!


I like me a scraggley Sirius Black.

Snape, being all Snapey.

Princess Leia holding a Happy Baby Rancor.


An Obi-Wan Kenobi sketch card that I did for Mark Brooks.

Arsenic and Old Lace.



90's Shark Dude, 4"x6" for Audrey Morris.



Yes, this is what you think it is.

If what you think it is is two superbros trying to relax after a hard day of fighting villains.


All in all, this was the best con ever. I can't wait to go back next year! I'm already excited about SPX and NYCC, so look for me walking around at both of those shows!

Hey, guys!

It's official! I have a table at Heroes Con! I don't know my table number yet, but I'll post it here as soon as I know!

Can't wait to see you there!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

4 x 6" piece for my friend Hunter's birthday (which was a couple of days ago).

Ralph and Mikey were always my favorite. Also, why did the cartoon Turtles not have nostrils? Even when I was a kid, I was like, "I doubt that Ooze would make the Turtles' nostrils disappear. That's just unrealistic."

"Sad Baby Monsters" on Comics Alliance!


Fluke was awesome. It's improved so much since I went two years ago. Fluke has grown, but it's still small enough that it's easy to meet people and talk comics.

One of the great people that I met at Fluke this weekend was Chris Sims, writer on Comics Alliance (This is my favorite "Ask Chris" article of his. Read it. It's awesome). Check out his website!

Remember that article that was up on CA about the "American" super hero redesigns? That was written by Chris. :D

Chris was nice enough to write up an article about my "Sad Baby Monsters" mini that I had at Fluke, which you can read here!

Thanks, Chris!

Fluke 2011

Fluke is happening this weekend! For those who are unfamiliar, Fluke is an annual minicomics and zine con that usually takes place in a bar (which is great because that means that there are drinks). This year, it'll be at the 40 Watt Club from 11am-6pm, but I'm going to try to get there so that I can get a table. Visit the website at Fluke is Awesome and you'll know all the things you need to know.

I'll have a bunch of minis: Skein, when i was little, BC/CC, and Sad Baby Monsters and Build-a-Beast.

American Heroes on ComicsAlliance

I have to say, I am super excited. Comics Alliance is my favorite source of comics news, and they've posted an article about our effort here at SCAD Atlanta to transform characters with colors in their names into "American" counterparts (all of this has been spurned on by Marvel's recent announcement that Black Panther will be changed to "American Panther"). Please, enjoy (my American Skull is all the way at the bottom, so you get to read the whole article to get to it).

AMERICA ALL THE THINGS

In response to Marvel announcing that it's changing Black Panther into American Panther, the SCAD Atlanta folks decided to re-imagine other characters with color names as American. Here's my answer to that (with super mega awesome foxy hot colors by Falynn Koch):

U.S.A. All the Way!!

Pay attention to The Temple of Cartoon Mojo at noon today. Something pretty cool is going to happen.

Student Spotlight

Hey, folks!

I've been diligently working on my Oni book, and trying to get back into the swing of things at SCAD. We had a weird week there when Atlanta got totally snowed in, but we're recovering with make up classes.

Aside from pro work, I've got several projects in the works in the form of mini comics (that I will most definitely have at Fluke and Heroes Con this year) and long-form story pitches. I will definitely keep you guys updated on all that.

ALSO! I am the focus of the student spotlight on The Temple of Cartoon Mojo, which is a blog/group dedicated to SCAD-Atlanta sequential art students. Go check it out here.

Here's the very nice intro that my friend and professor, Nolan Woodard (who is an amazing artist and one of the smartest people I know), wrote for my interview:

"Our latest student spotlight came to us without a background in drawing at all. Jackie's BA is in Theater Studies from Emory and needed to take some provisional courses to prove she was up to snuff and could make it in our graduate program (since we don't let just anyone in). Not only did she prove herself but she excelled. Jackie Lewis took to drawing and storytelling like a fish does to water. The transformation from newbie to literally everything to proficient and accomplished artist as one of our lead graduates has been an amazing thing to behold and we at SCAD-Atlanta feel blessed we got to be there when it happened. Editors have taken notice of her work too and even before she has completed her studies she has already been published in an anthology and is also hard at work on her first graphic novel with Oni Press. You can check out more of her work and follow her at her blog aptly named Jackie Makes Comics. And, boy, does she ever!"

Thanks, Nolan!
