Sunday Comics -On Monday!

The Hourly Comics Experience has me thinking again about Journal-style comics in general. It can be fun to try to capture the little events and moments of life in this form. This weekend a massive amount of snow dumped down on us. We went to sleep in Virginia and woke up on Hoth, so I drew out a few of the memorable events from our weekend adventure. Click the image below to read (you'll have to scroll down past last weeks hourlies):



COMING UP: I've been working on some smaller still life paintings which I'll post here soon. These fruity little compositions are helping me make some much-needed improvement on the basics of painting.

I love your snow day! We haven't had enough snow here this year and we're definitely missing it.

I found you over at the hourlies. Here's mine.

I hope you don't mind that I followed you here. I hadn't drawn comics in years, and have just recently started painting again, too. I am enjoying finding so many other artists online to inspire me.

Follow away, Ina. The more the merrier, I say.

Your hourlies are cute! Gluten Free February sounds difficult, though...
