For those who are wondering what the bartkira project is, it’s basically a mash up replacing all the characters in the Akira manga by Katsushiro Otomo, with characters from the Simpsons. It is a pretty huge undertaking with around 300 artists taking part, each working on five pages from the manga. I got pages 16-20 of Volume six. I’m not entirely happy of with how my pages turned out, but I’m glad I finished them. It is going to be such an interesting project with so many talented people involved. I can’t wait to see the compiled books.
Here are my pages.
Search the #bartkira tag on tumblr to see more (much better) pages.
So I’ve been a lazy shit about updating lately. I’m gonna try to be better about that. I’ve got a lot of new things coming up. So to start back up here is a sketch testing out a new koh-I-noor pen.
Testing out my new broad nib for my lamy fountain pen.
Inks for a local show poster.
Finished this big ink piece. About 99% of this was done with a nib and the rest with a flat brush, using dr. Martin’s black star matte ink.
Sneak peek at what I’m working on at the moment.
Did this for fun while watching a movie last night. Ink & brush on paper.
Started this last night.
Here is another goofy skull piece. Ink on paper then photoshapps.
New stuff from the Moleskine. Did this one at lunch today and the other after the vision verse show.
Holy shit, I finally have a “Finshed” post to go along with the dozens of “In Progress” posts I make. I’m pretty proud of this one.
Watercolor, ink, charcoal, chalk, amd Posca Paint pens on tan Rives BFK. I think I did an OK job capturing my favorite pretty girl here. =]
Goofy skull I did the other day. Happy Friday everyone!
Did the watercolors a couple weeks ago, so I decided to pull this out and mess with the inks during lunch.
Finished this up with some gold ink.
Done, I think.
Work in progress started at lunch today.
Trying out a new pen, the zebra fine point brush tip.
Owl guy finishes up my current sketchbook.
It’s been a while. Here are a couple things to make up for it.
