Inktober Batch 2 and NYCC14!

Here is the latest batch of Inkober drawings. Four new magicians with stories of their own and a world growing out around them...

It is a world on the brink of industrialization and magic is forbidden inside the walls of cities or towns. Magicians are outlaws in the traditional sense -not hunted as criminals, but neither are they protected by the law. Magicians are exiles banished to the fringes of civilization.

Additionally, the practice of magic has a disfiguring effect, making practitioners easy to spot. Older, experienced wizards appear barely human. Here are four Magicians with different levels of experience:


Reynard the Retired: A crafty old illusionist who has since abandoned magic and now lives as a hunter in the wild lands.


The Clockwork Conjurer: A strange wandering automaton that is widely assumed to be all the remains of a once mighty wizard. (in fact the wizard, what is left of him, lives on inside the automaton, powering it with the last of his magic).


The Widow of the Outlands: a young enchantress who was exiled upon the birth of her first child, born with a telltale tail.


The Witch of the Walls: A potions master that is tolerated to live on the outer walls of a great city. She scrapes together an existence mixing love potions, healing concoctions, and political poisons.

More Inktober coming soon...

New York Comic Con News: I will be at NYCC 2014 on Sunday, October 12th! I'll be doing a couple panels but the best time to stop by and say hello will be from 11:30 to 12:30 at the First Second booth (number 2237). Feel free to leave a comment if you'll be attending NYCC this year, and I'll be sure to look for you.

That's all for now.

A telltale tail. Love it. :D
Sadly, I live waaaay far away from all comic cons. Oh well. Have fun in NY!

Awesome stuff as usual Ben!

Tim Canny said...

Are you still going to be in the Philly suburbs on the 9th? I live about 10 minutes from where they say you are scheduled to be. Hope to see you there!

Matthew Green said...

Wonderful as always! My favorite is Reynard the Retired.

Ben Hatke said...

Reynard is my favorite so far too!

Tim, YES SIR! I will be at the Haverford Library at 4pm!

Ben Hatke said...

It seems we may finally meet.

Matthew Green said...

I hope this world that is "growing out around them" grows into a graphic novel. That would be really cool.

Will you have art/sketch-cards for sale at NYCC?
Looking forward to meeting you!

Ben Hatke said...

I WILL have original art with me for sale.

I will bring some sketch cards, or something like that, as well. When I do convention sketches I usually use little squares of Arches WC paper.

ChocolateFrogs said...

Awesome! How can I meet you before your First Second Sunday signing?

Cason Pool said...

Well, i did not know about Inktober and how much fun it is until now. :-( But why not have inktober every month? For the holidays I will be doing Inkvember, inkcember, and of course: Inkuary. What do you think ben?

Ben Hatke said...

Ah sorry Chocolate Frogs, I didn't catch your comment until now.

Cason: Inktober is a bit like NaNoWriMo -I'm havign a hard time keeping up as it is. I don't know if I could do an extra ink drawing every day all year round!

But my daughter Angelica has suggested Pencilvember to celebrate the fine, soft art of pencil drawing...
