I’ve never posted a page from Big Clean in its unfinished state… but, there’s a first time for everything! I’m going on a short vacation for the 4th of July weekend, so I won’t be able to work at all until Sunday. I had to do the dialog very early on in order to organize the page elements around the bubbles. Because it’s readable, I thought I’d post it for fun.

This is what my linework looks like. My next step will be to shade underneath this layer to establish the values… Then the coloring begins.


I integrated all the experimentation I’ve been doing in Part 5 into my standard methodology. I’m happy with how it turned out… so I’m glad I put in all that work pushing my style.


We wanted to get the whole “jumping the shark” thing out of the way very early on.

Part Three – Updated

June 15, 2015

I went back to Part Three and resized, value/color corrected, and did some other various things to the pages. Basically, I prepped them all for printing. All the pages are updated on the blog now. Part Three will be in Heavy Metal Magazine, issue #276 (August).

Here’s the next page. I feel like I’ve experimented enough with the style, at this point. I’m probably going to try to incorporate everything I’ve learned into my usual look (which I’m missing). But we’ll see… I’m always trying new stuff. I get bored easily.

Part 5 feels like an experimental EP compared to my usual “album” style.

I’m going to have to revert to the old “post whenever I can” approach, because these pages and my methodology have been really unpredictable as of late… and I’ve had a lot of other stuff to do, on top of it.


Part 5, Pg. 16

Sorry about this becoming a one page week, but I had a lot of other stuff to tackle… Monday is the start of a new week, and I’ll be going back to two pages.


Some stuff

June 2, 2015

Some work related stuff has come up over the past two weeks that I need to deal with pretty promptly. So, just like last week, there might only be one page this time around. Hope you all understand… Just how it goes, sometimes.

Also, if you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been able to stick to my “weekdays only” plan… Pages are being unpredictable (as usual). A lot of the time, I’ve been posting pages on Saturday and Sunday.

This page took much longer than expected. Not sure why. Just a pain in the ass this time. Looks like only one page this week.
