Here’s a short spooky comic I created, just in time for Halloween! The Classroom Curses: Of Lockers and Lockets is free to read here: ClassrooomCurses2
I was happy to learn that Cooties #11 was nominated in the Comics category for the 2018 Association of Mormon Letters award! Feels nice to be noticed. While unrelated to anything noticeably Mormon, the theme of the issue, sibling relationships, … Continue reading
I’ve finished another design for my Nerdy Storybook Covers print series! Combining Harry Potter and Dr. Seuss. I think it works! I’ll have these available for purchase at FanX in April.
While I am not much of a churchy person anymore, from 1995-1997 I served as a Mormon missionary in the jungles of Guatemala and Belize. I had a ton of memorable experiences, and I get to share an aspect of … Continue reading
Earlier this year I purchased booth space at an Artist Alley at a video game convention. It was pretty much a huge disaster. A scene that epitomized the whole experience happened when a shirtless man carrying a giant faux battle-axe … Continue reading
The awesome webcomic collective I belong to, SpiderForest, is Kickstarting a 100+ page comic anthology! It includes a 4-page Cooties story by yours truly, and the $40.00 tier comes with a sketch card by me of a character of your … Continue reading
I’ve been keeping up with my sketch card habit; I love being able to take a few minutes one or two nights a week and doodle a fun character. I’ve also been trying to come up with ways to make … Continue reading
The past few months doing freelance work has given me enough material to finally put up a portfolio website. Go check out nickperkinsart.com and have a look!
Just felt like doing a sketch of some of my favorite Jimmy Fallon silliness:
I’ve added a new print to my Nerdy Storybook Covers series: This is based on one of my favorite books to read to my sons when they were little, No, David! It might be a little too gruesome, but there … Continue reading
I think spring needs to come the day after Christmas, but no, we have to wait for 2-3 more months for the cold and depression to beat us down for a while so we can appreciate springtime or something. Anyway, … Continue reading
I recently got some semi-steady freelance work illustrating a High School Spanish textbook. Fun stuff!
I still hate winter; although not as much as some people…
I’ve been a huge fan of Jake Parker for several years. He is a talented illustrator who shares his wisdom freely. He was a presenter at last year’s Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators conference, and I got to … Continue reading
Just a personal study for fun.
So now this sketch card thing has become a mostly daily habit. This is pretty awesome, in my opinion. They’re relatively quick, and I am still finding time for other projects which I’ll post about soon. Here’s my most recent … Continue reading
I’ve been steadily doodling since the new year started, and loving it.I did a few more Gravity Falls character sketch cards: Dipper Pines! Grunkle Stan, and Soos! And maybe I was just feeling a little murdery today, but … Continue reading
My kids and I have finally discovered Gravity Falls. It’s everything I love in a show: humor, mystery, adventure, and a great cast of unforgettable characters. I’ll probably be drawing more of these guys 🙂
Ink week took longer than a week this month. Oh well. I am super stoked for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!
I’ve recently subscribed to Artsnacks – a subscription service that sends you a different mix of art supplies every month, then challenges you to make a piece using them. Wondering what to do with the 5 primary color watercolor pencils … Continue reading
Um you guys better freaking believe it’s Guardians of the Galaxy week up in here, a-holes! This is one of the greatest trailers ever. BABY GROOOOOOOT!
I was really inspired this month to create these drawings after watching Marvel’s newest superhero movie, Doctor Strange, or as I like to call it, “Iron Man Goes to Hogwarts!” While the story is, by this point, a run-of-the-mill Marvel … Continue reading
It’s supposed to be the first snow day of the season in Salt Lake today. This year I have snow tires. Be safe, folks.
