New drawing and new postcards for sale

Image
I made this drawing in Photoshop for fun, and ended up kind of liking it.



The original sketchbook version is always better though, at least to me.



Anyhow, I thought it would look cute as a little print, so I got four more drawings together and made a postcard set that you can buy on my Etsy shop. Each one is shiny and colorful and about 4" x 6". Here are the other ones...all stuff I've posted before, but tweaked to be more "print worthy."






I am making larger prints of some of these that will also be on my Etsy store shortly. I'm also working on some new Skadi prints.

You can click this drawing to go to the shop! Thanks!


Also, thanks for all the encouragement on my last post. I'll definitely be posting more drawings from my hill folk project soon.

Unfinished, unnamed hillfolk comic

So I've had this comic idea that I've wanted to do for a few years now, but I can't seem to get it started. I have the three main characters more or less figured out, but I can't seem to get the story or style nailed down.


If this comic actually existed, it'd be about three girls living in the Appalachian Mountains, sometime around the year 1900. I guess it's kind of inspired by all the things that they sing about in old country songs...religion, heartache, murder, mental illness, etc.All my favorite things.

There's Cora, a fire and brimstone fanatic who cuts her own hair and sometimes does bad things, like set fires to stuff. She's basically good though.And the most fun to draw.


Her "friend" is Shah, who lives alone in the mountains making moonshine and fighting off the inbred cannibals who live nearby. Shah likes animals and shooting people.


The third character is a mysterious girl with no memory of her life before being found on a riverbank …
