- 3 comics pages. pencils, inks, and colors. Jumping back into comics after a long time.
Painting and comics are my first loves. As I kid the two biggest presents I ever got where a box of Rembrandt Oils and some Fantastic Four comics. Made a huge impression on me and I'm getting back to those roots.
- 2 weekly 11"x17" drawings.
These are a bare minimum output. Commissions and Client work will go on top of these but this list is my weekly output goal. I can also plug in projects to the weekly drawing and comics pages. I'll know more about how much I can take on after a few weeks of this schedule. but It's a great start. Challenging and simple. I lay out all the things I want to finish for the week on Sunday (or in the case of this week, today. for next week) night. That way I stay focused for the week. Something I really lack in my life at the moment.
- Daily Action Items
The actionable to do list for the day and how much time to spend on each. Some will go over but It keeps me on task
I made simple word files to outline each of these 3 topics. There are more personal goals as well, but I'm just sharing the art stuff here.
Pictured is my focus pieces to finish this weekend and comic week January 1 - January 9 is the time period I'm giving myself to finish these.
Progress on my first Weekly painting is below as well as 1 of 2 weekly drawings.
Start to the drawing I used for this first weeks painting.
Final Drawing Charcoal on toned paper
I had the drawing printed onto a cradled birch panel. and then went back and gessoed out the edges so the hard edge doesn't show.
Blocking in the face and head.
Pretty far along. Will post the final for sale tomorrow.
He wanted a "Smart Ape" I ran with that and pulled in some biblical reference about the tower of babel. I tried to give the ape a look of knowing and he's ringing the bell to signify a new time and change. I call it "Bringer of All Knowledge and the End of Days"
