Mel Savage and the Real-Life Downers String Quartet

First off, here's Melanie and Rex discussing what movie to rent before work. A nice little color study that I'm pretty proud of. I like Rex's half-applied sock.

Then we've got some sketches of people on the bus, as well as a self-portrait of the young artist, and some Mel Savage action poses; running! ranting! Body odor smelling! as well as her diminutive gay publishing agent, Fandogan Levi.

and for dessert, some restaurant/bar/public park sketches for lolcat imagining, youtube poop quoting friends.

Melanie Savage, and the Baroque Follies

I've been gestating new character ideas for some time now and they finally came to a head during my soul-crushing business classes in the form of Melanie Savage, a wannabe-children's book writer/health nut with a scruggy bike courier boyfriend, Rex. I'm sure she'll evolve bit by bit as time goes on, but I'm sort of happy with where she is now.

I've also got some test sketches from Renaissance portraiture for a comic I want to work on soon, and some sketches of people I made while shopping at the thrift-store.
