Wendigo for the Creature Show

Wendigo, 14.75x16", Ink on Rives BFK

Hey all. Next month at Brave New Worlds the Philadelphia Cartoonists' Society is hosting its Creature Double Feature show. Members are all taking a crack at interpreting the word creature and drawing all of manner of monsters. The one caveat being that no digital pieces could be submitted for the show itself. It was a neat rule especially because for so many of us...ahem..the computer is essential to the finished piece. I was happy to get the chance to try out some ink work.

In anycase, here's a wendigo! The Northern American mythic beast who ravages the woods and eats the flesh of man, seemingly endless in its hunger. Because so much of the wendigo myth focuses around greed and cannibalism, I tried to make grotesqueries of its mouth, hands, and emaciated skeletal frame. Hope you guys like it, see you at Brave New Worlds, November 6th.


PS: I've been working some new promo work, above is a very small crop of one. Hope you enjoy.

The inkwork is looking nice, man. That's quite a big ink piece too, btw. I think the skulls really add a nice element to it also. Good stuff, good luck at the Creature Show, sir.
