TK, Mechanic Extraordinaire!

 I know, I know. It's been a while. But, it's not like I haven't been doing anything or lazing around binge watching Netflix shows (a week later and I am still four shows out from finishing the first season of Daredevil. Sheesh!)

Things have been busy here. I have almost written and arranged the six songs that will be recorded for the next OilCan Drive EP CD. I've been doing client work and learning new video production techniques. And, I've worked on, submitted, approved the proof, and ordered the next print issue of OilCan Drive, Track Two, the second chapter in the ongoing OCD series.

And, yes, I've also been drawing things here and there just for the fun of it.

I started this new piece of future OilCan Drive character, TK, while I was at lunch a few weeks ago. I didn't have anything pressing at the time and I felt like sketching something new, so I went through my sketchbook to see if I'd had any ideas I hadn't had time to work on yet. And this piece popped right out at me.

She will definitely be a fun and sexy new character to add to the cast in future OCD stories. I can't wait to get to her and see how she gets along with the rest of the people in my head.

Oh, and speaking of the new OilCan Drive book I just finished, if you're around tomorrow, Friday, April 17th, you can head on over to at 10am MST for a chance to win a free copy of the newest book. Supplies are limited and it's first come, first serve, so show up as early as you can. It's my little way of saying thanks to everyone for their support over the last few years with my personal project. I really appreciate it.

And here are a few process shots as I was working on the TK piece. Looking at them now, compared to the finished piece, I wonder if the phone on my camera stretches things out a bit because she looks a lot taller and skinnier in the photos than she does in the finished piece. Or maybe I just caught her at a weird angle. I don't know but my artist's eye can see the finished piece is a little bit off from the photos. 

Ah well, she is still super sexy and looks great no matter what angle you catch her at. See you all soon. It's back to work for me!
