It's no secret I notice things about people. Beautiful things, strange things, unique things, captivating things, and....butts. Well, at least during the summer months when all sorts of people tend to let it all hang out. I've come to terms that my humor quotient is basically at the same level as a pack of 8 year old boys, so I may as well embrace it and make comics from it, eh? The woman pictured above is no exaggerated depiction, for she truly ventured out of her house and down a public street with half her tattooed arse exposed. Not only that, she had a bad rash all over it and still showed it off! And not only that, she was exposing her girlie pink bra under a torn and filthy shirt! I admired her for her audacity and was very appreciative of her providing material for my comic. Medium: Ink on paper, digital color, and yes her hair was really like that.
It wasn't really the fact his jeans were getting all up in there, it was the way he stood motionless in the grass, stiff and solid like a heavy steel fireplug. I was sitting behind him in the grass, enjoying fresh lychees while watching him stand there like a stout little statue, only moving his neck slightly if a pretty girl walked by. Medium: Ink on paper, digital color.
I've spent much time lingering near tourist traps with my sketchbook this summer and here are some of the results. I couldn't help but notice a large number of horizontally-challenged butts populating the streets this year. Yep. I decided to create a comic strip called Butts of Summer and this is my first panel.
Medium: Brush pen and ink watercolor in sketchbook, scrap paper.
