Today’s installment of Sketchbook Liberation brings us to the last crop of demons from the demon sketchbook. Featuring a dude wielding bear traps: a form of armament that should be much more common, if you ask me.

Our continued tour of the demon sketchbook includes a rat king, a bat lady, and some weirdo with a broom.

I sketch a lot. That big stack of books and loose paper up there basically represent basically everything I have drawn over the span of the past 3 years or so. Most of what I draw never leaves the sketchbook, which in essence means I have literal mounds of art that I have never shared with the world at large. And that seems like a pretty awful waste! So welcome to the first of what I hope will be many sketch-collection posts I’m calling Sketchbook Liberation.

We’ll start with the sketchbook that, for reasons that will become quite obvious, I call the demon sketchbook. It all started with doodles of Krampus- always a good subject matter.

Then it evolved basically to the three pages below, where I just kept riffing on the demon theme. The haggard guy with the straight razor is a personal favorite, though the accidentally-Assassin’s-Creed-looking lion guy has his charms, too.

A quickie for Bi-weekly Challenge. The challenge was to do an editorial illustration: I based this on this Wired article about how scientists were able to fiddle with mice’s memory and turn unpleasant memories into pleasant ones, and vice-versa.

This right here is a Futakuchi-onna: one of the more underrated yōkai, if I do say so myself.

Fun with demonology, for biweeklychallenge.

I also made a time-lapse making-of that you can watch here, but I think I set the framerate too high, and it cuts out early. It’s my first time-lapsey thing, what do you expect?
