I just drew a fruit stand in an open air market. How much more summertime can your get? I must be getting tired of winter already! This sketch was done with a fine point sharpie and shaded in photoshop.
I have been having fun with hand drawn typography anyway, and then I went and met Chank Diesel, who seems to have done a lot of interesting fonts we all know and love. So here is another misc. type inspired sketch.
I can explain. It all started with a swirly texture that I sketched out a few days ago. I had no choice but to scan it in and start playing with it in PhotoShop. Once I came up with a few interesting variations, I thought, “That would make one sweet background for a comic!” Of course I couldn’t stop there, having come so far, so I worked up this scene of Zeke exploring something. How it turned into a book cover is anybody’s guess.
Will there be an actual Detours book rolling off the presses?
I’m not currently at liberty to say… Although I can say this much; it definitely isn’t going to be printed before I actually draw the comic. Pretty sure on that part.
All I’ve got for you so far, are the fragments of my experimental comic.
