DINO DAY 39!
It’s DINO DAY again!
I’m wiped out this week. Sometimes making comics just isn’t easy. This is one of those times. I still love it. Every day I get to make fun things. Sometimes it just doesn’t come as easily as others.
This week, I woke up and stepped on a little plastic stegosaurus on my way down the hall. After I hopped around cursing for a bit, I decided it was fate and I should draw a companion piece to week 16’s brontosaurus. It was always one of my favorites. Little. Simple. Fun.
Today’s sketch was done on a 4×4 remanent of bristol board, using a 03 Deleter pen and YR24 Pale Sepia and W10 Warm Gray 10 markers.
Alright, there you go. I need to get back to work…but my need for a nap is going to win out.
See you next week for another DINO DAY!

DINO DAY 38!
It’s DINO DAY again!
Today’s piece is a special one to me– a collaboration with my 9 year old son Ethan. This piece really gets to the heart of what I wanted to do with Dino Day. It’s me and my kids having fun, making things, and loving dinosaurs.
I asked Ethan if he’d be interested in penciling the dinosaur of his choice and then let me ink it. He was happy to do so and just knocked it out of the park. He wanted to draw a Spinosaurus but then when I looked over again he’d also added a Postosuchus, a nice background and even a couple of teeny tiny Pteranodons flying in the distance. I loved it.
I’ve collaborated with creators for years. I have to be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever been more nervous that someone was going to like something that I inked. I wanted to do it justice. In the end, I’m pretty happy with my inks over his amazing pencils.
The collaboration was done on a 12″x12″ piece of bristol board with a live art area of 8″x8″. Ethan penciled it using a HB school pencil and I inked it using a Zebra brush pen and a couple Deleter pens.
So yeah, this was a ton of fun. Getting to work with my kids has been the best part of this whole experiment.
Thanks for checking it out!
See you next week!

DINO DAY 36 & 37!
It’s DINO DAY again! This week it’s a double header!
So yeah– I owe a bit of an apology. Last week I was in New York for NYCC on Wednesday, and in spite of my best efforts, Dino Day just didn’t happen. I worked on a piece, but with running around the city, waaaay too much food, and general shenanigans, I couldn’t finish it and get it uploaded in time.
But I’m back this week with both pieces and I’m pretty darned happy with them!
Week 36 is based on a study from the Natural History Museum in New York City from the main room of their dinosaur collection. It was done on using Kuretake Zig Writer pen with .5mm and 1.2mm ends on a piece of 7x7in bristol board. I quickly bounced from tip to tip, using the 1.2mm end to block in black shapes and the .5mm end for the finer linework details. I like how it came out. It was something fun and definitely different from a lot of the pieces I’ve done for Dino Day.
Week 37 is the companion piece to week 25’s ultra popular Hipstasaurus. This one features the HipHopasaurus (or Beatasaurus). He’s pretty much my new favorite. The piece was done on 7.5×7.5in piece of bristol board using a crowquill pen and Paynes Grey FW acrylic ink, with just a touch of Orange (YR68) Copic Marker for the accents.
Okay, that’s it for this week. I’ll do better not to slack off again.

DINO DAY 35!
It’s DINO DAY again!
This week I’m busy. Crazy busy. Deadline busy. I’m not really sleeping much. My time is at the drawing table.
As usual, when things get this busy I wrestle with it all. Still. STILL! I work in comics. I’m drawing Constantine. And– dinosaurs.
Thanks to the crazy schedule this week I woke up in a blind panic and realized that I needed to do today’s Dino Day piece on the quick. Rather than do my usual routine of a bit of breakfast, coffee, and futzing around on my phone, I stumbled downstairs, picked up a pen and some paper and just started drawing. Honestly, I’m not even sure a was really awake when my pen hit the paper.
Today’s piece is a dilophosaurus (the spitting one with the neck thing from Jurassic Park, that apparently didn’t have a neck thing…or spit) done on the quick on a sheet of 4x4in bristol board using a Zebra brush pen, a 03 Micron pen, and a Faber Castell Pitt big brush pen for fills. It was done in about 20 minutes. I’m pretty sure I was fully awake about the time I was scanning it.
Okay– that’s it for today. I need to dive back into work. So close to wrapping this issue up!
Oh, I’ll be in NYC next week for Dino Day. I’ll have to figure out something special!
See you then!
