A nice bit of crumpet!

New painting. Did this a couple nights ago. It's a reproduction of an old Jack Cole playboy cartoon. I really dig his stuff. I'm really enjoying watercolors now too. --Will Terrell

Figure Drawing

I've been working my way back to figure drawing lately. Finally putting all the practice to use. Did a bunch of magazine sketches, and then had a friend model for me. I intend to do a lot more figure drawing in '07, leading up to going back to Watts Atelier in the fall. These are turning out a lot better than the last time I was doing figure drawing. I've learned to be more relaxed about my lines. Not just gashing out black core shadows like before. Getting there... --Will Terrell

New Sketches - 12.21.2006

Not sure how, but I'm drawing more with less these days. I think its one of those secrets that only makes sense after it... makes sense. But its so obvious in retrospect I can't believe I was making it so complicated all along. Basically I just feel more comfortable laying down very few lines now, instead of overrendering like I used to do. Its pretty cool. Did these while waiting at the Dr. Office with my Granma. And while eating a burger watching people go in and out of the gas station across the street. And... while watching cat in the hat on cable. Sketching is fun. --Will Terrell

Sketch night sketches

This one was digitally colored... (no idea what she's doing with her hand there.) Its weird. I dont know if other artist go through this, but I am feeling so incredible as I draw these days. I really feel my own style coming to the surface. And the incredible control that I never imagined possible. Yet at this same I feel like a little kid, completely in awe and bewildered by what comes out of the end of my pencil. Its like watch saturday morning cartoons when I was 10, except its all coming from my brain. Drawing is fun and playful now. Even my dayjob coloring comics, is starting to become something fun and exciting. I feel very blessed. I cant wait to see what my stuff will look like in a year or two. Man! Anyways, I think it has a lot to do with sketch club. I've really needed other artists around me to challenge me and help me to grow. Its made a huge difference in my life. I feel really grateful to know such awesome artists in this little town. And it seems like every day we meet more and more. And I believe that we will continue to grow and there are more and more exciting things on the horizon - 'o7 is going to be an incredible year. I love sketch club. --Will Terrell

"Death and Sandman." 11x17, cell paint.

I started this painting about 3 years ago. I drew the figures and partially painted them. Then got stuck. I was feeling artistic tonight after the store signing and when my first painting messed up (I ended up finishing it too after this one) I still wanted to paint so I grabbed this one that's been laying around the studio hurting my feelings since '03. It feels great to tie up old unfinished business, doesnt it. I think it turned out pretty well too. --Will Terrell

Conan Sketch

I did this sketch at the store signing today in Lubbock. Thanks to everyone that came out. It was a lot of fun. This was the first store signing that I actually did sketches I was happy with. Several in fact. Things keep getting better and better. Here's one that didnt sell... but I'm glad, I was secretly hoping to get a chance to scan it in. Anyone interested in buying this sketch it is $10 buckaroos. Totally worth it. --Will Terrell

Sketch Dump

Did a bunch of sketches today and last night to clear my head and try out some new stuff. That water color commission got me wanting to try some more, so I went out and bought a small watercolor sketch book. Its cool. I'll prolly do more. Feeling mellow tonight though. Anyways... --Will Terrell

KCBD newschannel 11 Caricture

This didnt scan very well. The painting turned out pretty good though. Despite the fact I've never really tried watercolors before. I think I'll start doing more. --Will Terrell

A boy named YAR!

I've been thinking about doing a 1-hour comic with A boy named Yar! for a couple weeks. Turns out its Pirate week at Sugar frosted Goodness so I thought I'd join and go ahead and do it. I just really like pirates. Here's the sketch. Oh... and his parrot can only respond with "your mom" jokes. --Will Terrell
