Recovering from a head cold and waiting on script, so I decided to take some time to do something fun for myself. Here is Pam Poovey from the hit FX show, Archer. The second season just ended, and it was even better than the first season! I loved the scene this season with Pam and her bear claws, so I had to draw it.
I cannot praise this show enough--it's smart, stylish and extremely funny. Check it out!

One more round on the Morning Glories Fashion catwalk! Like I said the other day, I had an idea for one more entry in this series, and of course it had to be Pamela, the psycho roommate/resident advisor. Nick has called her the 'unofficial 7th glory' and she's one of my favorite characters to draw. She hasn't shown up in awhile, though!
I decided to have a little fun with this entry, and really play up Pamela's psychotic tendencies. First outfit is based on Michael Myers' look from Halloween. Not the Bill Shatner mask look, but the scary clown kid from the beginning of the original Carpenter film. Then I decided to emulate Natalie Portman's look from Black Swan. Finally, Ghostface from the Scream movies (which were an influence on the book!). I seriously think Pamela would have these outfits in her closet and would wear them if she could. She's unhinged, but she's so much fun.

The final (?) entry in Morning Glories fashion is none other than the incomparable Zoe. Far and away the most popular character in the book--she's quite a firecracker. I'll admit that early on, it took me a bit to get the hang of drawing her. After her spotlight issue in #7, I got more comfortable with her and now feel more confident with her and her personality.
I always say that I base Zoe's appearance on Jordana Brewster circa the film, The Faculty. A lot of her mannerisms I use for Zoe. But, I also get a lot of Zoe from Leighton Meester's character Blair from Gossip Girl (not that I've ever seen an episode or anything..). Zoe clearly puts up a front, but it's clear she likes the finer things in life and has no qualms with wanting to look her very best.
I actually had one more idea for an entry in this series of character studies--hence the (?) above. I will hopefully get to it soon, but I am scrambling to get issue 10 and a load of commissions done. Colorist Alex Sollazzo has taken to coloring some of these up, and I'll share them all when he gets them all done.

Today's cast member to be spotlighted is Jun Fukayama! Jun gets a spotlight in the upcoming issue 9, and it's a real mindbender. Jun's a mysterious guy, but definitely seems the type that would still keep it classy with his wardrobe. I am fond of the leather jacket, an idea I got from an Asian classmate of mine from grad school who had the coolest leather jacket. I kinda wish I'd stolen it. haha.
Final entry soon--I think everyone knows who'd be saved for last. :)
