Hey kids,

I was fortunate enough to receive a Wacom Intuos4 drawing tablet for Christmas. Got to play around with it a bit Christmas morning, but haven’t really had the chance to take it for a test drive until this morning.

Decided to do a quick 15 minute sketch of Jack Claymore, the title character of my upcoming comic, Jack Claymore, Agent of V.I.O.L.E.N.C.E., due out hopefully this Spring. (Unfortunately,  this was my second take on the character this morning, as Photoshop crashed on my just as I was finishing up the first attempt. As pleased as I am with the way this one turned out, I wish I had time to save the first one, which I liked even more. C’est La Vie.)

Now that I have a drawing tablet and don’t have to worry about using my scanner that works only when it chooses to, I think I may try and do more daily sketches like this in the coming year. It’ll probably be just head shots and simple full body to start, until I get a little more accustomed to working with the tablet. If you have any requests — comic characters, movie characters, musicians, whatever — feel free to shout ’em out in the comments section or on Twitter. Who knows, maybe I’ll even start a Tumblr for these.

Anyway, hope ya dig.
