Sweeney Todd in "Living" Color

Sorry if some of you think this illustration is just creepy. It is, but I'm just trying to stay true to the musical. Check my previous post to read more on this.
On another note, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE using the computer to add color to my ink drawings! It makes for a much cleaner final product. Thanks to my big brother for giving me a computer drawing pad for Christmas!

Attend the Tale of Sweeney Todd

Yesterday, I watched the Broadway production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street with my family. I decided to do a creepy, stylized version of the impeccably shaved serial killer for my sketchbook. A great thing about being a Concordia art student is that I have to produce work prolifically. I'm hoping to add some color to this ink drawing on the computer and get some experience using my tablet pen.

My First Political Cartoon for Concordia

I'm having a great time at Concordia University! I'm hoping to publish this cartoon in our school newspaper, The Sower. This year, Concordia decided to stop providing students trays on Tuesdays in the school cafeteria, Janzow, in order to conserve water and money. Many students, including myself, are not happy with this decision. Despite these mixed feelings, Concordia decided to abolish trays altogether!

Regular readers will notice that Joe has grown up! Yes, Bob and Joe are now attending Concordia as freshmen. Don't worry though, it's just for my comics for CU. I'm still writing regular comics about Bob and Joe's childhood days. My professors are keeping me busy, so I'll post comics when I get free time!

Thanks for reading!

Charles Dickens

This is an example from my daily sketchbook for Drawing 103. Now that I've started as a freshman at Concordia, I'm getting a chance to do lots of art, but not much time for comic strips right now. . .Don't worry, though! Comics are on the way, once I can squeeze in spare time. I might even be able to publish in our school newspaper, The Sower.
