Daily sketchblog updates NOW at!

Hello, Traveler!
I apologize for the sparse blog posts here at I confess, I've sort of moved my daily sketchblog post operation to the website of my growing webcomic Legend of Bill! The strip updates every Monday and Thursday, and I update the sketchblog below it every day, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day!

So head on over there, my friends, as it's a lot easier for me to update one blog than two. I would humbly invite you to re-bookmark my sketchblog to THIS SITE!

Thank you for your readership and make sure you drop some comments into the Legend of Bill blog posts so I know you made the transition! ;-)
Kindest Regards,

Legend of Bill going strong!

Hello, my friends! Uber-apoligies for not posting in awhile - I've been sinking so much effort into my new webcomic Legend of Bill that I've been neglectful here - but just remember, if it seems light pickens here from time to time, there's lots to see at, so come over for a visit! LOB is going very strong, and you can find daily blog posts there as well, usually 2-3 blog posts a day actually, and TONS of skethes and LOB news. Come visit, and stay awhile!

"Legend of Bill" begins Today!

Hello, friends!

I’m proud to unveil my new webcomic and labor of love, “Legend of Bill!” For all of you who signed up for the Legend of Bill newsletter, thank you (and anyone who’d like to recieve it in the future, simply click on “The Hub” on the LOB page and sign up!), and to ALL of you, Bill, Frank and I bid you welcome to the realm of swords, sorcery and stupidity! Join us on our quest to discover Bill and Frank, a couple of characters fed up with their everyday existence and desiring something more out of life… something I think we can all relate to in one way or another.
Join us every Tuesday and Thursday, my friends, for the Legend of Bill! Bookmark us now, and we’ll keep a chair warm and a goblet cool for you at the Inn.
See you in the funnies!

Legend of Bill -- IS LIVE!!!

Dear friends of Bill,I am proud to unveil the Legend of Bill website! It’s my pleasure to give you a sneak peek into things to come here! The strip will launch with strip #1 Tuesday, May 27, and will run twice weekly, every Tuesday and Thursday. I invite you to visit Bill, Frank and Gina (who will make her appearance a little later in the strip) now, poke around, make yourself at home (as it IS YOUR realm afterall to explore), read about the strip, and help support a cartoonist in bringing some characters who have lived in his sketchbooks for a very long time to life. I cannot wait to show you what’s in store.

See you in the realm of Bill!

- David

Debuting today: TALL TALE FEATURES!

I've joined forces with a group of cartoonist friends not unlike the Justice League of comics called "Tall Tale Features!"

Today is opening day and I hope you'll all head on over and check it out. Tall Tale Features is a group of well-known (in both print syndication and webcomics) and professionally-minded cartoonists who have banded together to say "Hey, quality webcomics found here!"This is illustrious group consists of:
• Lucas Turnbloom of Imagine This• Brian Anderson of Dog Eat Doug• David Reddick of Legend of Bill• Mike Witmer of Pinkerton• Scott Metzger of Stewart• Brock Heasley of The SuperFogeysYeah, that's some serious talent up there. Head on over to TALL TALE FEATURES to find links to each one and check 'em out. Quality stuff!What else can Tall Tale offer you? Glad you asked. On the main page you're going to find a frequently updated blog filled with news about your favorite comics, pop culture musings and whatever else we feel like talking about. It's also your source for the latest news on all the Tall Tale comics. Getting into the site a bit more, you'll find bios of each of the creators on Tall Tale and a link to "TTF Radio" a podcast that will be starting up shortly, hosted by Tom Racine (of Comics Coast To Coast) and featuring the Tall Tale crew on a rotational basis. But the heart and soul of Tall Tale Features has got to be the FORUM. There you'll find separate forums for all your favorite Tall Tale webcomics, along with other forums for discussing nonsense, movies, etc....and a place to plug your own work, too!So, without further ado, Tall Tale officially kicks off today so now's a great time to get in there, register on the forums and start being a part of things. We expect big things ahead and hope you'll be there for the ride, and join us in the fun!

Yours in Comics,

Sorceress colored!

And the Sorceress in full color!


A Sorceress from "Legend of Bill" ... decided to ink her up... in my comics writing for Bill, she has emerged as a woman who may very well be inexplicably in love with our hero! So, watch your back, Bill!

Legend of Bill sketch

Another Legend of Bill sketch out of the ol' sketchbook. I've been on fire with sketching lately... I have literally 5 sketchbooks going all at once for no real reason other than I can't decide which paper I wanna draw on most, so I'm just drawing in all of 'em!

The Trek Life characters

Get to know The Trek Life characters!

The Trek Life April '07

Been missing "The Trek Life," my thrice-weekly comic strip I did for CBS/STARTREK.COM for 2 1/2 years, so to help my withdrawal, I think I'll post a few strips here and there from 1 year ago this time, just for the fun of it. Hope you like 'em, and if you're not familiar with The Trek Life, hit the link and check 'em out! And be sure to check out Star Trek Magazine at your local bookstore for a new "The Trek Life" in every issue too!

Star Trek Magazine Q illustration

A fun illustration I did for Star Trek Magazine a few issues back...

Friday, April 25, 2008

And now for something completely different...

A TOTALLY different type of sketch than what I typically post here... something I sketched at a local park ... I have always loved this scene ... and you can't beat it when you have some geese who actually relatively stand still (for the most part! The beauty of it is, when one moves, you just look at another and can MOSTLY extrapolate the pose!)

Sketchbook page

Bought a new sketchbook and this is the first page from it ... Canson's "Balloon Sketch" 8.5x11 spiral ... the best sketch paper on the market in my opinion!! There's nothing like starting a new sketchbook.

The Legend is near...

Here's a very rough sketch out of the 1st Legend of Bill strip, showing our hero at work, with the bossman ever-looming. Needless to say, Bill is tired of the 9 to 5. Adventure can't be far behind!
Anyhoo, progress is near completion on LOB. Strips are in the hopper, the LOB Comicpress pages are nearly complete, the fine folks at have put out the red carpet for Bill, Frank and Gina to reside (we'll call it the "SoulGeek Inn," in 'Bill' terms), and we're about to rock n' roll. Legend of Bill will be weekly, to start, with the intention of increasing it's frequency, with endless possibilities. So, my friends, become a Bill supporter! Sign up for the LOB newsletter, and you'll receive a nifty greeting and some sketch art for fun via e-mail in return... and scroll down this very blog for lots of LOB details and extras as we near launch at the end of this month!! Oh, and I'm working on a map too, highlighting the realm of Bill! ;-)
More details to come!

Legend of Bill: Bill's horse...

A sketch I JUST started awhile ago, showing Bill's horse. I basically wanted to draw Bill on his horse, so I started this sketch ... and there's ol' Frank, just happy to be along for the ride! I think I'll keep rolling on it and put some villianous bad guys in the background amongst the forestry, and see what happens... then, maybe color it up and make a desktop wallpaper out of it or something! ;-) Stay tuned here for progress...
