The Comic

I haven't posted any new work in a while because I'm currently pursuing a childhood dream...creating a comic novel. It took 31 years, but I've finally gotten around to planning out 160 pages of story arc (with a larger story arc extending over 3 other books). I'll finish the first 60 pages by January (inked, colored, lettered) and begin submitting it to publishers. If that doesn't work out, I'll attempt self-publishing. Either way, this is fun and VERY different than painting. Here are two images from the colored, one in B/W. Expect more updates over the next few months.

Systematic Theology Postcard

Last month I was asked to design a postcard for a Systematic Theology Study happening next year here in Austin. My dilemma was "how do you design THEOLOGY?" I began leafing through my photography and ran across a few photos I took in Israel back in 2009. The one I ultimately chose is a sundrenched shot of the Dead Sea and some of the isolated land around it. The typeface is Museo (no matter how much I see it used, it is still amazing) and the secondary image is a graphic from an old, 30lb Bible I keep in the studio.
I'll post the back of the card once I'm finished with it.
Here is the book featured in the study...quite the tome:

New Pen, Old Gouache

I cracked open an 8 year old gouache set I purchased at a Chung-du art store and found my favorite pen from Miller Blueprint downtown. Here is a fraction of what ensued.

Spring Break = Comix

10ft worth of on-going comic side project. I've always wanted to try some long-form comics, now I'm finally getting around to it. Once lettering/coloring is complete, I will post the first few "chapters" on the new QuartermanStudio site (still working on that).

Musical Blog Chairs!

With a current re-design of my fine arts and applied arts sites, I have decided to change my fine art blog to QuartermanStudio will become my illustration & design blog. If you have questions, send me an email.
Take care,
