I've obviously taken a break from the comic at moment and have been working on a skull (wait for it...) for SKULLS, the first International Skull Appreciation Day Exhibit. Kinda cool to be one of a hundred or so local artists selected to take part and while the deadline is still a month away I wanted to get cracking on it sooner rather than later. Cuz knowing my procrastinating arse I'd start the night before the deadline.

Sketched it out the other night after priming the skull (paper mache) and then took a Pitt brush pen to it last night. Of course, the Pitt pen doesn't really stick to the gesso the way I'd hoped and started smearing. Will be wearing gloves until I can get the underpainting on. Expect a lot of greens with some splashes of red.

As you can see, I've got a little helper on this project...
