I recently came into possession of a Cintiq tablet; I think this is going to be a game changer.  I can also safely kiss whatever social life I have goodbye.

Also, it feels really weird to create something digitally from scratch. It’ll take some getting used to.

The Basketball Jones

I’ve been looking at a lot of pin up art lately for some inexplicable reason.  And sometimes you’ve just got to draw a pin up. Also, if you’re listening to the Space Jam soundtrack, the chances are slim that you’ll draw anything but a basketball cutie.

When I was doing my 4″ x 6″ drawings for Rose City Comic Con I used it as a perfect excuse to do loads of fan art.  Anything I would ever have wanted to draw but normally wouldn’t have had much cause was up for grabs.  And that’s the story of how I wound up drawing Cammy White.

To that end, for all of November, if you buy anything from my online store (http://vaughnbarkerillustration.bigcartel.com/) I’ll include a free 4″ x 6″ drawing as my way of showing thanks.  If you spend $50 or more I’ll even color it by hand for you!

Ms. Mustache

Portland may not have invented the hipster, but I think they’re definitely more in love with the life style than any other city.  (Which is saying a lot since I moved up here from the San Francisco Bay area.)  And, what is no hipster without?

A mustache.

Again, something I don’t quite understand, but I still couldn’t pass up drawing it.
