A heart! A raccoon!
Oops, how does it always get to 3am so fast?
I started inking random pages from part 2 of Hearts and Holes after weeks of being too miserable to trust myself to work on it. It feels good to be back!
After I pencil, I ink random pages to keep my pages looking consistent, so this one is actually closer to the end of the chapter. I still have to ink the background but here’s a giant heart. I added a lot more tubes to the heart than is actually anatomically accurate… but it’s for drama!
Also, a bonus!
Below are a bunch of sketchbooks books I made using leftover copy paper from the last comic I produced. I was inspired by a great post on a great blog called from your desks… about about Marc Johns and his working space. I really loved when Marc showed off his self-made sketchbooks made out of regular ol’ office paper. It seems so ordinary but it forces his sketchbooks to stay their course– as non-precious-mistake-ridden-with-sometimes-wonderful-ideas things.
I was so moved that I actually made some for myself. The raccoon is just for show but he does make a handy paperweight.
