Here’s the finished art for the new song my band made.

This song tells the story of a woman named Margret who struggles with poverty and the one day of the year she can afford to live like everyone else is when she gets her tax refund.

My biggest influences are Ben Folds, Paul McCartney, and Pomplamoose, so if you’re into that kind of music you might like our meager attempt to channel those styles.

So, while watching the winter Olympics I misheard an announcer say something and thought he said a skiing bear. My girlfriend thought that was hilarious and that I should do a series of illustrations with bears doing winter sports.

Title: For One Day
This is an illustration I made that will accompany the single ‘Tax Return’ by the band Airgo. The song/illustration is about a woman who only gets to treat herself to little things like Sushi and a nice haircut once a year when she gets her tax return. 
I roughed this out in pencil and then traced it using a lightbox with a .05 copics multiliner. I absolutely love the copics multiliner. I should mention I use the more expensive metal ones. While more expensive, they come with replaceable parts making them more reasonable over the long run. I don’t recommend their plastic versions. I’ve found them to be junk… or rather I should say the lines don’t seem to be as crisp and it lacks precision, at least in my experience.
I colored this in Photoshop. I experimented with some new brushes that have a painterly feel. I’m definitely going to use them again, in part because actually painting is too expensive and canvases take up to much space. One day…

I just thought I’d write a little about my process on this.
As you can see I used photo reference to get the body position I was looking for as well a the folds in the clothing. I actually think the body posture in the photo is more dynamic than the final illustration, so I hope I’ll get better about that as this web comic progresses. 
The background I did from my head because doing desert style expanses is pretty simple. To get the dust effect under the Grav board I I flicked my brush to get it to spray ink dots, I should use an old tothbrush for this but I don’t have one that will work yet.
Coloring often takes me forever and a day, so I decided in the interest of actually getting this series come out quicker I would mostly flat color this series with a few key areas having gradients or highlights. My hope is that by being carefully selecting really rich colors and occasionally coloring the line art, It won’t be missed. I’ll be doing some additional concept art soon.

Turns out the world isn’t such a bad place after all. 

My new website is up! I built it with Adobe Muse (which was amazing to use). The mobile version is still pretty bare bones but the desktop browser version is almost fully fleshed out.I still need to fix the contact form but hopefully I can do that tonight.
