When I’m not working on work or homework, I’m working on this Sailor Moon drawing!
Also I accidentally reblogged some art references and funny things on this art blog when I intended to put it on my personal one. I was using the Tumblr app and somehow didn’t catch that. Sorry guys! If you are interested in my personal tumblr though, it is just filled with some art references, reblogs from this blog, and things I find funny/adorable. Here it is: Personal Tumblr

That moment when you realize that David Tennant is one of us.
This is the best thing that has ever happened.
It’s no secret that I like Lady Knights like, a lot. I put together a little randomizer as a sort of exercise. Then I thought, why not share it?
So here’s the thing. Five categories of traits. Pick three and run with it! Bonus challenge: do all five categories. And of course you’re free to add to the categories if what you want isn’t in there. Have fun with it! Don’t forget to tag #Lady Knights so I can see the cool stuff you come up with!
Here’s my starter to kick things off: Fists, Top Heavy, Nervous, Indian, Shark/Piscine.
A comiXologist Recommends:
Coleman Engle recommends Lumberjanes #1
Lumberjanes is an awesome new series from BOOM! Studios’ new imprint BOOM! Box that showcases the tremendous talents of numerous up and coming women in the industry.
The story, written by Noelle Stevenson (gingerhaze) and Grace Ellis (ohheygrace) is about a small group of friends and their time at a summer camp for “hardcore lady types”. With this first issue we are introduced to the main members of The Roanoke Cabin: Mal, Molly, April, Ripley and Jo. Out late one night, they come across three-eyed foxes, a cryptic message and an agitated camp counselor…all in a day’s work! While the girls are off getting into trouble, magic and mystery flicker around the panels. It’ll be exciting to see what’s in store for them!
The artwork is done by Brooke Allen (brookeallen) whose incredible sense of line weight, storytelling and attention to detail make each page a knockout. Allen (who put out a book called A Home For Mr. Easter with NBM, which can be downloaded on comiXology) is no stranger to cartooning, taking inspiration from Blutch, Akira Toriyama, and Jeff Smith and creating her own engaging and stellar worlds.
Adding to the charm of each page are beautiful colors by Maarta Laiho and hand lettering by Aubrey Aiese. The marriage of Allen’s art, Laiho’s colors and Aiese’s bubbly, playful words seems effortless.
If this first issue is telling of how the series is going to be, we should all be super stoked to see more! Like, SUPER stoked!
Coleman Engle is a cartoonist from Virginia currently living in Brooklyn. He works at comiXology as a Digital Editor.
Here are some photos from our most recent meet up at Light Grey Art Lab that centered around the challenge topic “Spring”. We had some awesome pieces at this one, and we’re really thrilled to be able to showcase some of them! We also had a discussion in which we talked about online portfolios: curating content, choosing a platform, and resources to use. Check out Business of Illustration for some excellent resources and hosting options, among tons of other useful information, along with this post on Muddy Colors by Lauren Panepinto if you’re curious how an art director may view your website.
