Usagi Yojimbo To Be Auctioned Soon by CAPS to Benefit Stan Sakai!

According to the CAPS website:

On Thursday, March 6, 2014, Southern California's CAPS, the Comic Art Professional Society, will launch an ongoing series of eBay auctions of original comic art. Its goal is to raise funds for medical care for Sharon Sakai, the wife of respected cartoonist and longtime CAPS member Stan Sakai, creator of the samurai rabbit USAGI YOJIMBO. Sharon has been battling a debilitating brain tumor for some time; after an extended hospital stay and convalescence, she is currently at home, but her condition requires 24-hour care and medicine that costs more than the Sakai's insurance covers. 100% of the proceeds of these auctions will go directly to Stan and Sharon Sakai to help pay their ongoing medical expenses.

I'm proud to be a part of the auction, and support one of the most important and enduring independent creators in the business, Stan Sakai!

The picture should go up for auction in a couple of weeks. I'll be sure to let you know when, as soon as I do.

9x9in White Rabbit from Alice In Wonderland

So, this was for a commission that was meant to be 3in by 3in. I accidentally ended up making it 9x9. Argh!  Fortunately there's time to correct the mistake, but here it is:

I think I might have a home for it though. And here's the original sketch:

As usual, there are things I captured in the sketch, that I didn't in the finish, and things in the finish that the sketch doesn't capture. Either way, I don't think this is my definitive take on this particular character.  I'm still happy with it though!

Another Gingerbread Man Rough. The Fox Gets Foxy

So I figured it was past time I posted some art. I've been spending much of my time stuffing envelopes for my Kickstarter project lately, and fulfilling my other Kickstarter obligations, so here's some art from my Gingerbread Man project:
