New single page comic for The Youth, More coming soon: http://mkempillustration.com/the-youth
So for the past mount I’ve been developing my own web comic called “The Youth” so I though I’d post up the cover page I made as well as the first page and some character designs.
Once I get the ball rolling the comic will be about the main character, David, an average high school student, who lives in the future where everyone has superpowers, except him.
However, until I get the story fully developed Im going to make single page stories just to keep the artistic juices flowing!
I always prefer my pencils to when I go through and ink and color, so I decided to do only pencils and have the finished pages done entirely in my Moleskine sketchbook (hence the cover)
hope you enjoy!

Good evening my good sirs and madams my name is Michael Kemp: Co(s)mic Illustrator.here’s a link to my website: mkempillustration.comI just finished this illustration about a month ago and entered it in a contest to hopefully be the cover art for AFI’s new single “A Deep Slow Panic” It went through a lot of different stages…I initially envisioned it as a black and white graphite rendering but soon realized that I am more of a pen and ink kinda guy so I stuck to my usual method of focusing on the line work and coloring it in photoshop, this time around however I wanted to add an ink wash texture to the black-ness, so I did a few ink washes and scanned in my favorites and dropped um into photoshop which helped ad the “airiness” that I initially wanted to get with the graphite approach.
I also made a pin-up for my friend’s all-ages comic Ragged Rider : Tales of a Cowboy Mummy, I really enjoyed making my own type with brush and ink rather than digitally making the type (something I though I would never enjoy!)
Finally, the last drawings are a promo cover and some character designs for a comic I am working on. Hopefully will get developed enough to pitch to some companies. Working on having some more work form this project to show soon.Cheers!
