The Spink Race by kevinbolk The Spink Race by kevinbolk
So Sarah is in Portland, OR this weekend for work (she's visiting the folks at Dark Horse Comics, lucky girl), so I filled in and drew today's strip for her Spink comic strip at the Interrobang Studios site.

It's funny that I have a harder time drawing a ridiculously minimalist style than I do with stuff that's more complex. XD

most likely because you're used to complex, and therefore you have a complex art mind-set.

Cool :D To be in Portland, OR my friend is in Washington right know though but relative area. Must be cool to go nd see darkhorse comics.

This comic makes me laugh a ton though, this has happened to me at times. BTW is he sleeping after he fell flat on his face, if so I just did something similar to that earlier today xD

Hm, I was wondering, is Interrobang associated with Interabang ([link])? I work for Cerulean Games, and they did a project affiliated with Interabang awhile back, so I was wondering if the two were related in any way.

Sorry this is so hard for you to draw, but it's still good. I hate when the simple things are hard

It's interesting, isn't it? Some people can draw simplistics with ease while having issues with large detail. They may be able to exceed what they normally put out, but not quickly.
Then there are those who can crank out massively detailed, high quality pieces, but have issues with something incredibly simple in design, often referring to the level of difficulty to that of making a perfect circle.

Funny when you think about it :3

They are adorable but I have to saw they also look bad ass and not just to keep my mancard, have you thought about putting them into Trigger Star? They aren't quite as adorable as the baby shadow dragon but I think they would cute up the series a bit and it would let you draw them in the Trigger Star art style! I always think it is awesome when people have different art styles for their different comics but then combine them, kind of like in animes as well!
