The Shack May Be Abandoned, But The Stove Still Works

19 08 2013

The Abandoned Shack's Working Stove It may have been a bit presumptuous to think that I could do a daily doodle update, while working a full-time job, doing a daily comic strip, and trying to get some writing done. I have been sketching and doodling most days, but nothing worth putting up for the world to see.

So, I will certainly take the time to post any work that I do deem worthy, and I hope that will be on a fairly frequent basis – but probably not daily. I will also try to continue putting some kind of interesting thoughts and/or updates here on the self-titled blog.

As for this doodle, I really don’t use pen-on-paper very often without having a lot of pencil work down first so I decided to give it a shot. I certainly miss the opportunity to erase mistakes but I do like how it forces me to slow down and be more deliberate in where I’m placing my lines.

Anyway, I hope you like it and I hope I can get something else up in the next few days. Thanks!

I recently watched The Avengers again on Netflix, with my sketchpad in my lap, and by the time I was done enjoying the movie, this doodle had appeared on the page. These are the stars of The Garage in Avengers cosplay.

I’m staying pretty busy doing a Monday through Friday webcomic at The Garage and I have recently started a blog devoted to short stories at Little Artifacts, but I’m still interested in becoming a better cartoonist, and a better artist more generally. To that end, I’m going to try to post daily doodles to this site. Hopefully it will be enough incentive to ensure that I do some kind of ‘directionless’ drawing practice everyday.

These aren’t doodles done today, but they were done in the recent past and I have added them to prime the pump, so to speak.
