Hourly Comic Day 2014

Yesterday, February 1st , was Hourly Comic Day. Here are the comics I drew. If you’re interested, you could also check out the comics I did for Hourly Comic Day 2013.

That’s it! Thank you reading! Not too exciting, but it was fun (and exhausting) to draw. Shoutout to Matt Cummings (@EiffelArt), who got included in the comic through that sneaky tweet.

Update: Here are some of my favorites from Hourly Comic Day 2014. I definitely recommend checking them out!

 

Summer shopping watercolor painting

Shopping watercolor

The result of a shopping trip where my goal was to get some new shirts and underwear. I’d say it was a success. In addition to everyday clothes, I got a hold of a white dress shirt and a fancy purple bow tie. The latter was pushed into my hands by my girlfriend as she spoke the words ‘You have to buy this’. I can’t say that I wanted to protest her suggestion, because purple is awesome.

I’ve been doing mostly simple pencil drawings and digital stuff lately, so I decided to change it up a little bit by using traditional watercolors. It’s not quite a journal comic (even though this post is in the Journal comics category), but it’s pretty close since it’s so personal in a way. I’m really putting my boxers on display here, but hey… It’s just a simple, painted representation of… my underwear.

Bonus doodle! I painted this skater girl too. It’s not much, but I wasn’t quite ready to stop painting after finishing the above. I had had a lot of coffee in the evening before I worked on this, so I just happened to stay awake a until past twelve at night, painting with watercolors. As one does.Skatergirl Doodle

Platypups

Platypups

Apparently, the baby platypus doesn’t have a “proper” name. According to an image that someone shared on Facebook, they’re informally called platypups. Which, as you can see, resulted in this reaction from my girlfriend. Isn’t “platypup” just an awesome name?

The process behind this comic, for those interested:
Sketch: Sketched on a A5-sized printer paper, redrawn on Deleter manuscript paper with blue pencil lines.
Lineart: Manga Studio EX 4, magic marker with fixed width (no-line weight)
Color: Photoshop CS3

Forgetful

Missing something?

Packing clothes and bringing a bunch of presents home for the Christmas holiday is a hassle, and it seems you always manage to forget something. In this case, I forgot something to protect my head and hands from the cold, even though I knew it was freezing outside. Forgetful or just plain stupid, you decide…

I drew the sketch for this comic on the ferry on the way home for Christmas with my girlfriend. It’s a bit unchronological to post this now, since it’s partly Holiday-themed, but hey, it’s an update!
