MEOW SUICIDE pencil study

I'm teaming up with 2 other artists to produce licensed art prints of a few Suicide Girls, for Comic Con. They're sharing the booth (#433) with us this year so I figured, fuck it, let's do some art prints. The model I chose to illustrate is MEOW.

READ more about it here.

This is just a warm up. I'm trying to get familiar with Meow's features so I can get her likeness for the art print.

I pieced this together from 2 photos of her. I chose to go with a simple pose for starters. I just wasn't digging that her hair was pulled back. So I looked at a different photo of her for the hair.

This was all done with an HB pencil and a kneaded eraser. On Rives BFK paper (damn you James Jean). I haven't tried this in 15 years. It turned out better than I expected. Not sure if I'm going to use this approach for the art print. Might not be ready for it yet.

IWYS cover and tutorial


Here's the final cover for I Want Your Skull magazine. There's a big interview with me in it. Check it out!.

These are PROCESS PICS detailing how I did the IWYS cover art.

I hope this helped. Now go support a brotha

This is just one person's way of working on a project. Do whatever works for you. Inking with a brush isn't a skill you're born with. For some people it takes a lot of trial & error. I still have a long way to go.

I am honored to have been asked to do the cover and be interviewed for the fifth issue of IWYS. Every issue comes packed with extra cool crap and this one's no exception.

It's a labor of love that RYAN AUGUST puts together in his spare time. Somebody buy that guy a beer.

Comes with 2 screen-printed art prints, a screen-printed envelope, poly bagged, promo postcard and the 56 page book. Some of the other artists included are: ROB SCHWAGER, MATTHEW AMEY, JERAL TIDWELL, BRIAN MORRIS, DREW MILLWARD and many more.

kia. warped tour.POSTER ewing
Kia Motors commissioned me to design their official Vans Warped Tour '08 poster. (This thing is like 8 posters in 1!!) They'll be handing these out at the KIA SOUL Lounge in "sponsor land" at every event. They are also making the art into huge-assed 6 ft tall banners.

Check FUSE TV, they're going to be featuring the artwork during Warped Wednesdays.

I'm stoked to be involved with the Warped Tour for a 5th year in a row. I can't even keep a girlfriend that long. Oy Vey.

**I gotta apologize to everyone that's been trying to get in touch with me over the past month. I've been up to my eyeballs with deadlines. Here's one of the first projects I can post.

If you contacted me and haven't heard back...please try again and I will get back to you.
