Sketchbook Update: Doodling in the Dark

I’ve been working on a project illustrating Bible stories in a comic book format. Last night I went to the comic book store for inspiration, and found some great stuff! Most notably “Kyle Baker: Cartoonist” (Vol. 2) and a few comics by the legendary John Byrne.

I got home just in time for a thuderstorm to blow through and knock out my power (again!). But it turned out to be a real blessing. After weeks of non-stop craziness, there was nothing I coud do except curl up with a flashlight and read my newly-purchased comics. It was very relaxing.

Kyle Baker’s stuff is really inspiring. After absorbing his book, I did this late-night doodle by flashlight. Why a barber? I have no idea. He just came out of the pencil that way.
