Mikky Ekko at Joe’s Pub—drawings by mollybrooks

We love Molly’s drawings and were delighted when she asked to come in and draw during Mikky Ekko’s recent Joe’s Pub set. Drawings offer a unique perspective on the live event and Molly has both a great eye and wonderful style.

If you want to come in and draw a musician or band’s set, give us a shout and we’ll try to set it up.

Had some fun with watercolor the other day. It’s been a little while since I’ve messed around with it like this, but I really want to do more. There’s something about putting down a field of color that changes the way you draw space.

since tumblr mobile ate most of the images from my last post and won’t let me edit them back in, here’s another with excerpt from hockey ops #1, my collaboration w writer sam page that i’ll have available at tcaf this weekend!

several decades from now, international relations have gone terribly awry, and a second cold war is being fought with spycraft, sports, and ghastly mad science.

stop by table 226 and grab a copy!

i’m at TCAF! :-D

Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF)
Presented by Toronto Public Library and The Beguiling
@ Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge Street
Saturday, May 10, 9am-5pm
Sunday, May 11, 11am-5pm
Free to attend.
Full info at www.torontocomics.com

i’m exhibiting with andreatsurumi and thekatzsisters. stop by table 226 saturday or sunday to say hi and grab some books!

here’s what i’ll have (my general themes seem to be hockey, secret agents, and emotions):

POST
eighty years after the end of the world, a courier falls in love with a beautiful lady scientist after being hired to deliver a series of anonymous love notes to her isolated workshop.

AGENTS OCTOPUS RE: THE MAD SCIENTIST
two intrepid agents from the international spy network OCTOPUS track a rogue scientist to the budapest docks, but are unprepared for the ghastly creatures guarding his laboratory.

HOCKEY OPS #1
(collaboration with writer sam page)
several decades from now, international relations have gone terribly awry, and a second cold war is being fought with spycraft, sports, and ghastly mad science.

HOCKEY!
a mini collecting various hockey-related doodles from the past year, as well as the short comics “hockey & i meet cute” and “fiction and real life are different, you moron,” originally published on yahoo! sports blogs and the toast, respectively.

HOCKEY & I MEET CUTE
an embarrassing valentine i made to celebrate suddenly falling in love with a sport after a lifetime of not giving the slightest shit. (4x6 folding card with glassine envelope, perfect for sending to the person you love almost as much as watching chaos on ice skates).

a few little illustrations i did for Time Out New York a couple weeks ago, about weird yoga classes available in the city. these were “laughing” yoga, “twerk-out” yoga, and naked yoga. (every single one of those sounds like torture to me, but to each their own!) 

i’m really happy with the sketches!

also i’m SUPER glad there isn’t footage of me attempting to take photoreference selfies for this project. lol is me realizing after three minutes of flailing that i can’t actually put my foot behind my head.
