Sweetly Creepy Art and Comics, by Dragon Messmer

Continued Learning

Before After

Adventures in Spot Blacks

So, unlike everyone else I know who is serious about making art and comics, I don't have an art degree or do it for work. I generally do not know what I’m doing, which causes me a lot of anxiety and often blocks my ability to sit down and work.

Every once in a while I remember that these skills are learnable, and that I’m good at learning things, and so I look things up and practice. That’s the way I learn everything important.

Above is a "finished" drawing that I went back over.

Later this month I'm doing the Comics Workshop at the Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont. I'm so excited.
