Sketched this while chatting with a friend about how his characters might look.

He has all these great ideas which he never trusts and almost never finishes. …

Isn’t the guy on the right Van Pelt from Jumanji?

That was the look my friend was thinking of when I was talking to him, and we had a discussion about what variations of that sort of very late Victorian safari outfit looked like.

Van Pelt’s outfit, for instance, looks much more like an Imperial Raj officer’s uniform, with its red cravat (and non-uniform as far as I can tell black shirt), lined cape, spiked helmet and calf-high riding boots — very much in keeping with his domineering, condescending character.

I thought this guy, on the other hand, should have more of an adventurer’s version, like Theodore Roosevelt used to wear when he went on safari: no cravat, low laced boots and puttees. I also wanted a heavy canvas shirt instead of a coat and a more square version of a pith helmet (like one I used to own); but that wasn’t really what my friend had in mind, so I changed it while I was chatting with him.

Probably any version of a guy with a big moustache, a pith helmet and a rifle is going to look like Van Pelt to people from now on. It’s the most iconic version of that Great White Hunter, and so everyone’s touchstone (including my friend’s).

Haha Isaac Barnoff has been tweeting threats at me all day.

Well, he could spend his time writing and drawing new material, which would show everyone what a font of creativity he is; and which would build professional respect while entertaining others and improving the tenor of comics in general, not to mention building his personal marketplace.

But what would be the point of that? Someone somewhere might steal something. PROBABLY YOU

Sketched this while chatting with a friend about how his characters might look.

He has all these great ideas which he never trusts and almost never finishes. His art is good, but he thinks it’s awful so he seldom draws and never posts anything. I won’t even tell you these side characters’ names; they’re so cool and evocative I wish I had come up with them, and someone would steal them immediately.

Talking with him reminded me I need to post more art!

Hey Tumblr!
So a few months back I finished the personal project to rule all personal projects.
I found a copy of the adorable and clever Hello Kitty Tarot deck by Joe Rosales that is now out of print. I thought it would be fun to color it. I was going to use watercolor, but the paperweight and ink wouldn’t allow that… So I scanned it and painted it digitally and 78 paintings and probably 300 hours later this is what I have!

I used the Thoth deck by Lady Frieda Harris and Aleister Crowley for color inspiration. I ended up editing the drawings for alot of the cards and totally redrawing a few of them To fit my interpretations of the cards. About 80% of the line work is original
It was a lot of work but I think it was worth it so that I could have my own version of such an adorable deck.
The concepts and drawings are (c)Joe Rosales and of course all the characters are (c)Sanrio

I really like the coloring on my old cards! She redrew a lot of my rough old art to make it better, completely redoing several cards with different characters and elements.
I still think Winki Pinki was better for The Empress, but maybe that’s because I used My Melody for Death instead (she wears a hood). I don’t think these are still available. I know the ones I did aren’t!
