Life Drawing 2015

Following my previous post about Studio Paradiso, I decided to add some of the life drawing I’ve been doing this year.  I added a page to this website under the header Life Drawing Gallery.  I haven’t yet graduated to sessions longer than 45 minutes, but I’m hoping to work up to it this year.  Let’s see how I do! ;-)

Exclusive Confessional Advertoon

I’m providing something a little different today.  Most of my blog posts are news updates relating to the projects I’m working on or process posts, but today I’m presenting a sequential cartoon strip that I drew specifically for this blog.  It’s also unique because it’s autobiographical and expresses something I care passionately about.  I’m calling it an “advertoon” because its meant to support my friend’s business, but I compiled this series of images simply because I wanted to express something important to me.  Thanks for taking at look.

More Savage Sword!

Robert E. Howard’s Savage Sword Volume 2 is available today from Dark Horse.  It’s a 144 page anthology that collects the various stories from earlier issues into one convenient collection.  All three parts of the Dark Agnes story that I was involved in (see previous Dark Agnes posts) are collected back to back.  Francesco Francavilla drew Part One and I took over for Parts 2 and 3.  Check out this PREVIEW for a little taste of what’s included in this appealing package designed to sate your thirst for savage tales of adventure!  REHSavageSword_vol2 Also, if your interested in acquiring any of the original art of the Dark Agnes pages that I drew, I have them available for sale.  I’ll bring them with me to Emerald City ComicCon this March, but shoot me an email if you’d like to get a hold of them now.REHSavageSword_vol2_DarkAgnes

Teasing again…

I took some time off from blogging last month, did you notice?  That wasn’t intentional, but I’m finishing the graphic novel that I’ve been working on this year and I guess that preoccupation was to blame for the neglect.  Here’s a panel from a page I colored over the weekend.  I’ll see if I can get aamcconnell.com back in motion this month.  Maybe Tintin and Snowy can help…
