Happy June and Finished Henry!

Happy first day of June!

I finished up the Henry Doodle piece just in time to use it for the new June Blog Header. That's one of the reasons I've really been enjoying these OilCan Drive doodle pieces. Instead of using another piece of client artwork as the header for the blog I can use my own personal work that's near and dear to my heart.

And not only did I finish the Henry piece enough for the blog but I also got the finished design done for the original piece as well. I'm not sure what I'll be using these final illustrations for in the future but I have a few ideas in my head already. I'm sure they'll all be turning up again sometime soon.

And Dad, if you need a larger image of Henry for your computer's background, just let me know. I'd be happy to send you a custom piece of art for that.

As for OilCan Drive, after finishing up the book I did for Free Comic Book day and compiling all of the art for the Exit 6 Collected Book the idea of doing another comic book story has really been stuck in my brain. The problem is, I had the characters, I had the drive, I just didn't have any ideas for a good story. I had a few scenes I might want to do and maybe a short story or two but nothing that would support a more long form story.

And, then, last night, during my bike ride, it hit me. An idea so simple that it would allow me to do some shorter OilCan Drive adventures while tying everything together in a larger story arc. So, I'm excited to get some of these ideas down on paper and see where it goes.

Maybe taking the day off yesterday and giving my brain a chance to relax and reboot wasn't such a bad idea after all.

Have a great day and a great June.

Nice! I love how your figures *pop* off the header. Almost 3D, but doesn't cost any extra!
