Guarnido Emulation

While I was at CTN last week, I picked up a copy of Juanjo Guarnido's book, Blacksad, which is quite possibly one of the greatest comics ever made.  So for my emulation assignment this week, I decided to tackle Guarnido's style and draw my younger sister as a Blacksad character.

And Then There Was Rome

I drew during the six months I served in Rome more than I did during any other period of my mission. I'm not quite sure why. I think it was a combination of things: the encouragement of art-appreciating companions for part of my time there, the emotional strain I experienced during other parts of my time there, and of course the sheer amount of artistic inspiration that surrounded us, whether it be Renaissance painting, Roman sculpture, or modern graffiti... There were a lot of factors that contributed to this personal artistic revival I experienced.

Whatever the reasons, here are some of the things I drew during my time as a Roman.
