A commission with a more cartoony and colorful style that didn’t need detailed photo references.
These two are random sketches based on a couple of interesting frames I found. I started with the owlish mask of what became the first weary warrior woman.
I figured if the comic were going today, Huey and Riley would be Black Panther fans so they’re doing the Wakanda salute here…or trying to.
It’s been a little while since I’ve drawn in a comic style, so I decided to go for one of my standbys: Flaming Carrot.
I went with the first thing that came to mind since it had a few distinct images in it: Cat’s In the Cradle by Harry Chapin (or Ugly Kid Joe, depending on your era).

I’m joining artist Celeste Young for an artist takeover of Chromatic Coffee. The theme of our show is Hues/Muse, a collection of works organized by the moods of eleven different colors.
These “pickles” are made from Pixelblocks, which are a bit like translucent Legos.
Rather than try to black it out entirely, I added an extra layer of crosshatching which gives it a nice depth.
I was trying to make sense of some of the lyrics from new songs by The Killers. So here is the most immediate, literal interpretation that occurred to me.
