Employees Only - WMDs

Despite what some people might think, The Mix isn't really a stock webcomic trope character, he more or less represents the real Mix. There is a ridiculously thin line between his comic persona and his real one; so writing his character is usually as easy as having an online chat with him. I don't think foreign governments have anything to worry about, but he does have seven more years of med school, so you never know.

Employees Only - Dr. Evil

The Mix - need I say more?

I just started using Manga Studio for my comics, and it's taken awhile to nail down the features so I could mimic my comic's look. So far I'm pretty excited about it!

Latest Portrait Commission

I've updated my portfolio site, iancastruita.com with my latest commission.

I created a portrait for a client who was looking for a unique gift and asked if I could reproduce a photo as a charcoal and pencil drawing. This is my first military portrait, and I'm thrilled with how it came out. It was also a nice to step away from a computer screen and sit down in front of an easel again!

Special thanks, as always, to my older bro for lending a critical eye to the process and pointing out where I needed to improve this piece.
