Hello! Last week I posted three new drawings on my Tumblr – just some experiments with digital colouring (with varying degrees of success I think). These were doodles from my sketchbook I cleaned up and inked properly, except for the first one, which I just drew straight unto the page with a brush pen. Hope you like them.
Also, I’m still taking commissions:
Email me at julia.scheele [at] gmail [dot] com if you’re interested!
More updates soooooooon!
I’m opening up personal commissions again, to help with printing costs of future projects (The Heroines Zine, prints, and the second issue of I Don’t Like My Hair Neat)! £30 for black & white, £40 for colour (irl or digital).
All requests to julia.scheele [at] gmail [dot] com!
If you are a magazine/website/company and are interested in an editorial illustration/logo design/storyboards/character design, please email me at the email above for a quote!
Finished sooner than I’d hoped, here’s the comic I promised you in the previous post! It’s based off of the song “Like A Mountain” by Timber Timbre – I had this idea for an animation for it while listening to it on headphones, but as I’m no animator I made this comic instead, to practice and try some new things. Click for larger version (but: warning, it’s a big file, as I still haven’t quite figured out how to chop it up into several images but look like it’s one big image).
Should have posted this ages ago! After a slow start to 2013, creatively, I’ve finally finished this idea for an illustration I had a while ago (click for larger version):
Silver Banshee is a DC supervillain and Fantomah is one of the main characters from good ‘ol mad Fletcher Hanks’ comics (give him a google if you like surreal, pulpy revenge fantasies drawn in the 1940s), and I always thought they’d make good pals. Ain’t too many girls who live with skullface and manage to pull it off that alluringly.
Hopefully this will soon be an A3 print on lovely paper!
Otherwise, I’m practicing my comic skills on a little three-pager which will be done soon. I’ll keep you more updated from now on.
I have a comic in the new issue of Kerrang, out now! Go on to your local newsagents and pick up a copy. It’s got plenty of other comics by talented cartoonists, like that Marc Ellerby.
Here’s a really small sneaky preview of my comic (it’s about Biffy Clyro):
It’s been great doing something for Kerrang. Music’s always a big thing for me (hence 69 Love Songs, Illustrated), and it’s a nice feeling combining it with drawing.
Anyway, Kerrang is out now! Pick it up!
Hourly Comic Day! For the uninitiated, the mission is to draw a comic every hour you’re awake, for a day, about your day.
It was the first time I ever participated in this – probably the first time in years I wasn’t at work on the 1st of February. It happened exactly when I planned to stay in bed all day because I’d been ill at work the two days before, so, um, it lacks thrills and chills. Nice exercise, though! Makes me realise how much more regularly I need to draw comics. Maybe I’ll start doing some kind of loose auto-bio thing. For the sake of my rusty cartooning skills.
ANYWAY here it is already:
