Richard Harrow's eye.

Upcoming project. Semi secret Christmas/birthday present for a friend. First time writing my own script for a comic, which was exciting, frustrating, and ultimately fun.

A good deal of my time so far has been dedicated in the costumes of medieval Japan. The patterns and layers of clothing are just a joy to soak up. I spent half of the research watching my Kurosawa DVDs and jotting down drawn notes, and the other half, looking at old woodblock prints. No pattern was the same, but each drew its origin from nature. Everything was a play of symmetry and asymmetry, simple and complex, so on and so forth.

I get to draw crazy medieval beards, burns, and staches.

Bandit costume design.

Bandits man, bandits.

The character in the middle really changed it from thuggish barbarian to hipster bandit. I like that.
