Hypermorph Sketches

Filed under: Artwork — Tags: , , , , — William Cardini @ 7:56 am

I came up with the name for my Domy Houston show on Wednesday. I was originally going to title it after one of my paintings, The Rise of the Miizzzards, but then I decided that I didn’t want to restrict my show to just paintings of Miizzzards. So, I came up with something more generic: Hypermetamorphologies. After talking with my d00d Paul DeVay, I shortened it to Hypermorphologies. Later, Glade convinced me to (rightly) truncate it further, and so I settled on Hypermorph. Heavy lifting done, I wrote up the statement and my bio, and selected my promo images. You can see the whole package here.

I still need to come up with a poster image for the show, so I’ve been doing some sketches of hypermorphs. Here are the first two that I did:

Domy Houston Show Sept 25th – Oct 21st

Filed under: Artwork — Tags: , , , , , , — William Cardini @ 7:15 am

I’m going to have a show at Domy Books Houston from Sept 25th to Oct 21st. The opening is going to be on Sept 25th from 7 to 9 pm. I’m going to be working on it as much as possible until then. I have a long list of things that I want to make but not enough time to make all of them.

Here’s a sketch I made for a painting for the show:

Right now I’m thinking that the show is going to be paintings from a battle between the Miizzzard and the Wojrollox. I want to paint a lot of weird transformations, intensely patterned and colorful costumes, and strange worlds.

Josh Burggraf Inks

Last week I posted this sketch to my flickr:

Unbeknownst to me, my buddy and fellow GCPM member Josh Burggraf decided to try his hand at inking over my pencils. Check out the dope result:

I especially dig all the details that he added to the Miizzzard at the bottom.

Titanic Clash of the Shamen Page 7

Last week I finished the seventh page of Titanic Clash of the Shamen, a collaborative comic that I’m doing with Josh Burggraf.

We were hoping to have the comic finished in time for STAPLE! but it looks like that won’t happen, considering that we would have to do five more pages and the cover in a week. However, we do plan on having it done in time for MoCCA Fest, April 10-11th at the 69th Regiment Armory in NYC, where Josh will have a table.

Page 7 took me a while to plan out. Although I knew what I roughly wanted to happen and who was going to say what early on, I had to do a lot of sketches and try drawing the page with a number of different layouts. Josh has definitely drawn a pretty psyched-out Page 6, and I don’t want Page 7 to come up short.

Here are some of my sketches, in chronological order:

In this first one I was trying to figure out a good panel layout and some good back-and-forth magical attacks between Floyd and Shamanman.

In this second one, I refined my idea of how I wanted Shamanman to attack.

Once I busted out the Faber-Castelli I was really able to get some images flowing. I drew this one and the next a couple days later than the first two, at Sketch Klubb this past Thursday. The good people at Public School were kind enough to host us. Their studio set up is dope and it was good to jam with a bunch of new people.

The final sketch from that nite. At this point I was on the verge of drunkenness and just kind of doodling some ideas floating around in my head, including Shamanman transformed into a yeti and some space invaders that I might put into a future project.

Here’s one panel from the final page:

I ended up using a lot of the ideas that I sketched in my final drawing.

VDay 2K10 Drawing Closeup

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — William Cardini @ 8:38 pm

Hey y’all, sorry that it’s taken me so long to get a second post done this week!

Per request, I’m posting a close-up shot of the drawing that I did for Glade for Valentine’s Day:

The drawing is watercolor over india ink. It depicts Glade and I defeating a monster with rays emanating from our wedding rings. If this drawing is too big for your computer screen you can see it various sizes on my flickr.
