english is not my first language and all my life i thought brussel sprouts was the name of some celebrity

Time for another compilation of bits from my Instagram (which you can find here).

This time around it’s all snippets from a comic I am working on. I am painfully aware that I don’t actually have much in the way of proper experience in drawing sequential work (or to be more accurate I have drawn a meagre 24 pages to date). In order to get a bit more practice in before I start work on an ongoing series this fall (more on that later), I’m taking a leaf out of the book of Becky Cloonan and drawing a mini-comic with a view to having it available to buy for those of you attending Thought Bubble this November.

You will be able to see that all my favorite tropes are covered - beards, boats, skeletons, the sea and it’s mysteries - and there will no doubt be more snippets posted between now and November.

Yo! My name is Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey…This is cosplay as Cinematic Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider Man. This suit was made by 
Jesse Covington ( Writer and Costume Designer) and sewn by Sasha Williams ( Fashion Major graduate). Photos were taken by Pierre BL Brevard I specifically would like to thank Marvel Comics Artist Sara Pichelli for designing this character. I’m also very excited to see Olivier Coipel's work on Spider-Verse!

no but imagine Nitori has a journal that he keeps especially about Rin. And he just does little drawings of Rin and he writes his name all over it and theres little entries that start with Senpai said this, Senpai did that, Senpai told me i was doing a good job etc and the front page has Matsuoka Ai written on it with a bunch of hearts and little shark and duck doodles and one day he’s in locker room frantically writing something Rin just said to him down (because he carries it with him everywhere) and then Nagisa just pops over his shoulder like WHAT ARE YOU WRITING AI-CHAN? and Nitori fucking screams and tries to hid it but Nagisa grabs it and reads it while running away from Nitori who’s desperately trying to get it back and thats how Nagisa finds out about Nitori’s crush and they become shota besties.
