WSJ: Too Much TV

This is an illustration I did for the Wall Street Journal's weekend edition, for a story about the limits of human memory as it relates to TV shows and keeping track of all the various characters and plotlines in them.  It features main characters from Game of Thrones, Orange Is the New Black and from the second Season of True Detective.  I have to plead ignorance on two of those shows, since I'm only familiar with the characters from Game of Thrones, which I drew some quick sketches of a few years ago.

This entire illustration was drawn digitally, from a mountain of photo reference.

The Walk-Up

This was a short one page comic story I drew last year for Taddle Creek Magazine but forgot to share until now.  They put out a nice tabloid size comic issue, featuring some fantastic cartoonists doing shorts in a "Sunday Comics" size format.   My story was 14" x 16" in size - quite large!  You can click the image above to see a larger, readable version.  I had fun working on this, and enjoyed the challenge of writing something in a 1 page self-contained format.

This strip was drawn on paper, with coloured inks and lettered digitally.
