Earlier this month, I learned how to use a tomahawk, long knife, cutlass, military sabre, and small sword. Next year, the workshop will be held on ship. Here are the sketches I did during the free sparring sessions using mixed weapons.

I pinch!

I've been watching Deadliest Catch. While I was switching channels, I saw a Honda commercial featuring a talking Element to a crab, "I pinch." It had the most appropriate voices.

SD Red Star

This is from a script my friend Dave Thun wrote a while ago. There's a few panels missing, so don't expect it to make sense yet. I'm nearly done with the final inks and then I'm going to try my hand at digital coloring. It will done by the end of this month, if not earlier.

animals from Six Flags Marine World

Here's a Siberian tiger swimming and an African lioness sunning herself.

This is two views of the sthenele satyr butterfly.

Three mammals with the same sized drawings in my book - a cheetah, an orca, and a female Indian elephant.
