Off to a good start

Well, my first post on IF is a bit inauspicious. The third post was the Penelope from IF telling me I screwed up the page I was supposed to link to. Ah, well. Next time I'll get it right; put this time down to nerves.

I was thinking of putting another panel from the comic up for critique/ridicle as punishment for my screw-up. However, I'm not sure yet if I want to keep this an IF only thing or if I'm going to put other works up.

This is my first ever post for Illustration Friday. It is also single panel from a comic* I'm working on. It's tentatively called "Dead-evac" and is based on actual events in my life. SInce discovering graphic design and typography, I haven't done much drawing other than thumbnails for the past six years, but I decided to start up with a vengence. This comic has been pushing my skills to their limits but I've found that drawing is a bit like lifting weights: if you do it every day, you'll see results. While I'm not ready to submit to Flight yet, I can literally see imprvements since this summer (this was started two weeks ago).

I wasn't planning on scanning any of this in until it was entirely inked, but I wanted to post on IF. I plan to make this my IF web presence (I refuse to say 'blog'; a word for which my abhorence is only surpassed by 'webinar'). So, without further delay:


Two fish are in a tank.
The first fish turns to the second fish and says:
"Hey, you know how to drive this thing?"
