Who Needs Chopsticks? Part 2

Hey, so after sleeping on it I decided I wanted to balance the composition a bit and add some color and ambiance. I added in some background detail with the lanterns and that inspired the color of the piece a bit. I feel a lot better about it now. It was also quite nice to pick up my brushes again as it has been a few months since I have used them. All in all, I'm pretty okay with how it turned out. Enjoy.

Who Needs Chopsticks?

I came up with this rough idea for a sketch featuring me with my mouth wide open vacuum sucking some of my favorite Chinese foods. I spent some time doodling in my sketchbook trying to come up with a composition I liked and did a final line sketch. Below are the results of that work. The problem now is that I don't know what to do with it. I played around with some coloring in Photoshop, but wasn't liking the way it was turning out. So, yeah, not sure what to do. I think I might just leave it for a day or two and look at it again and see if I can come up with something. Anyways, here is what I got.

Rough sketches

Final lines (at least for now)

My Hair is Too Long

Every once in a while I get that urge to chop all my hair off. I haven't done it yet, but everyday I come up with more and more reasons why I want to cut my hair.

The Lost Pages From A Long Gone Sketchy-Magee

So today I was doing some much needed cleaning around the apartment and stumbled upon an old sketchbook from 2013. I purchased this sketchbook in hopes that it could become my next day to day sketchbook. Soon after I started drawing in it the pages began to fall out. I taped the few pages back in but then more pages kept falling out and I got fed up and never finished it. I tossed it aside and bought a better sketchbook. Well today I found it and decided to post some of the forgotten sketches that never got a chance to be posted. Enjoy!

This is a sketchy outline for a comic about my and John's obsession with Mister Softee. In the comic it shows me thinking after John asks me what I want, but the truth is I always know what I want. Cherry dipped cone every time!

I'll leave you with this final thought I found scrawled in the book.

A Sneak Peek at This Year's Holiday Card

Thought I'd give you guys a sneak peek at this year's holiday card. Just a taste.

Ooooooo mysterious.

Bonus! This past weekend was Comic Arts Brooklyn. I could have spent so much money there, but had to show some restraint. Either way, check out all the cool stuff I got!

One thing I was definitely excited about was buying this ink painting from Phil McAndrew. I love his comics and art and am excited to own a little original piece from him. So excited, that I immediately went out and bought a frame for it.

Probably the most exciting part was being able to talk to Theo Ellsworth. I bought one of his zines and he drew this cool number on the inside. I will cherish it forever. 

Super Extra Bonus! Here's a little doodle of me at the park a few weeks ago. Enjoy!

Last of the Sticky Notes

Here are the last of my September #Stickathon2014 drawings. Man, some of these are pretty bad. Enjoy!

Super last minute Mito sketch.

Went to the National Zoo and got to see real pandas!

Batman on a plane on my way to Chicago.

Of course I did one everyday except the last day of the month, 'cause fuck it. It was fun though.

Bonus: Was at the National Zoo on the 28th and got to see actual pandas. They were so cute!
