This here is Charlie, from my three-part comic series The Charlie & Clow adventures.
Recently I flipped though a LOT of old sketchbooks (the oldest one dated back to 2011 during my junior year of college). And I saw Charlie pop up quite a bit in those old books.
Her story changed, but one thing stayed constant: her goth-punk aesthetic.
I originally created her to be one of the starring members of a punk rock band. Over time, she became more of an interesting main character than the one I originally wrote. So I rewrote the story to make her be the focus.
Through the rewrites, though, she always stayed a punk/goth girl.
Part of it is because of her personality.
But also I really like drawing punk and goth fashion.
So who knows? You may see more of Charlie being a fashion model on Instagram.
In the meantime, this original sketch IS available as a hi-resolution download for Ko-Fi backers and Patreon patrons. The sketch itself will be listed for sale on Storenvy soon. If you want to know when it drops, get on that email newsletter. It’s the best place to find new shop listings.
ALSO! I will be at the New Dimension Comics in Saint Clairsville, OH on March 7. It’s Free Graphic Novel Day! To celebrate, I will have free grab bags, as well as some original sketches marked down for sale.
(All proceeds from the sale of the original art pieces will go towards helping with the cost of moving. Because I will be moving to a new apartment May 1 this year).
Thank you for reading!
You. Are. Awesome.
P.S. I’m not joking – watch my Instagram for future pics of Charlie being a fashionista.
Awww yeah, the comic book copies of Charlie & Clow are finally here and ready to ship out of the Storenvy shop. The books are 26 pages of action with remastered lettering and behind-the-scenes sketches of the making of the comic.
If you haven’t gotten the book already, go get it by clicking here.
Now that RathaCon has wrapped up, I’ll be sharing more new stuff from my shop. There were a bunch of new things made for RathaCon, so if you couldn’t make it (or you made it but couldn’t get it), don’t worry – I’ll highlight the new stuff for ya over the next few days here on the blog.
Recently I took stock of my daily goals, especially the goal of drawing two sketchbook pages a day.
Earlier this year I said I wanted to do this to make more sketches to put together into more eBooks. But after I finished the Superhero Ladies Sketchbook, I was out of ideas. I stopped drawing for eBooks.
