I love smears, but I feel like I use them as a crutch. I don’t know how to make the inbetweens for my poses without straying from the original model, so I end up playing connect the dots with the character’s anatomy without knowing how to realistically portray it.

I am auctioning off one of my first ever, original wrestling posters to raise money for the Disaster Emergency Committee in support of their current relief efforts in the Philippines.
(Note: It wasn’t my decision, but the auction is for UK residents only. I’m really sorry to anyone who wanted to bid from outside of the UK. Hopefully soon when I get the time, I’ll put a few of my own charity auctions up for world-wide fans.)
"Isolated and longing to connect, Chuck Forsman’s Wolf reminds me of other great characters like Charlie Brown and Holden Caulfield. Celebrated Summer is a primal scream drawn in a casual, hypnotic monotone. Few comics are this soulful. Few cartoonists can make work this assured.” – James Sturm
"I love the spare elegance of Chuck’s storytelling style. I also love, in this book in particular, his relaxed approach to examining the lives of his characters." – Chester Brown
"…Forsman is one of the strongest and most vital young cartoonists currently putting pen to paper — not to mention one of the most fully, uniquely realized." – The A.V. Club
