The Great Elk

A big (15x21-ish) piece I've been passively working on the last couple days, in line with AnthroCon's theme, Modern Stone-Age Furries.

See you in Pittsburgh next weekend! I'll be in the Dealer's Room at table G10! :]

Another little piece I painted between comic pages--it's about 4x8 inches.
Barbary striped grass mouse, lilac crested roller and scrumptious red locust.

The Northern Territory

A map, as promised! I love making maps.

Specifically, it is a map of the Northern Territory, part of the Nordguard universe and where most of the fun in the books will take place. For a "real world" point of reference, Kuuvik (down at the bottom) is in relation to Churchill, Manitoba. The map is based on period maps (late 1800s/early 1900s) and the charted arctic region of the era. Some of the topographical features of the map are different in the Nordguard universe (namely there's a few additional mountain ranges, which slightly effect climate and the treeline) but the coastline is roughly the same.

It was a nice, brain dead break from painting pages--and now I can stop using the scribbled bar-napkin map I was referencing before. ;]

Across Thin Ice Pages

Here's a few pages from my graphic novel, Across Thin Ice.
You can see a whole lot more, including in-progress photos of these pages, concept art and studies from the comic either on or here on Blogspot!
