Guy Palmfrond

Here we have a character study of one of the title characters from my next comic, "Guy and Kylie's Tiny Dinos." This title may be subject to change. I'm trying to loosen up, in an effort to incorporate some of my recent influences (Chris Samnee, Darwyn Cooke) and a lifelong love of the "cartoon modern" school, to a debatable degree of success. I mean, I love Mary Blair, but I'm 32 years old: this is probably how I'll draw until I'm dead. This image was inked using a brush and a nifty Rotring calligraphy pen purchased for me by my good friend and respected contemporary, Fred Noland.
