I realize that I haven’t posted anything on this site since July of last year, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy. I was at Milwaukee Zine Fest again last November, and I have posted a portfolio of my work from the Racine Zoo under Portfolio, plus I am working on some other projects as well. I am the kind of person that doesn’t like to show anything until it is finished or near finished, but I wanted to at least update anyone on what I’m currently working on:
-I am still working on Drannik & Lizzep #7, but it is taking me a lot longer than I thought it would. I have finished the second chapter, and am starting work on the final chapter because I want to get the ending down before I work on the rest of the story. Basically, what Jeff Smith did for Bone.
-I will be releasing an album of music in the next while or so. I just have to get the mixes approved from my audio engineer friend before I make that public. In the meantime, that will appear on my Bandcamp page: buskers.bandcamp.com
-I am also, on the side, compiling a collection of my old Negligence comics from years ago into a new book collection.
There are other things I’m working on as well, but these are my main projects at the moment. Just a quick update this time.
So, it has been a while since the last post. I have done some site cleanup, including updating the resume on the About page, fixing the Links page (some of the links went to dead sites), and adding new pieces to the Portfolio section (specifically, the Comic Pages section). Speaking of which:
“The Journal of Mischa”, a comic I am making in conjunction with NAMI of Racine, is coming along swimmingly. The cover has been finished for a while and is on display on this very website. The pages have been sketched out and I am working on inking them as I type this. The grant process has begun, and I’m hoping it goes through when the time comes to send it. Below are a few screen captures of what has been done so far.
Some brief updates: I’ve added some more stuff to the portfolio section of the site, including the image above. Yes, I am planning on making Drannik & Lizzep Ts to support the comic book, but it might be a while before any are printed off.
In the meantime, Meta Con is coming up in a month, so if you are in the Minneapolis area and want to meet me/purchase some comics, that would be the perfect time to do so.
Finally, Drannik & Lizzep has returned to the Kindle store. If you want to purchase a copy for your ebook collection, click the link in the previous sentence.
I’ve updated the Books section of my portfolio, giving more up-to-date info on Drannik & Lizzep #3. I’ve also added quite a bit of stuff to the other portfolio sections (comic pages, illustrations, and miscellaneous, just to name a few), so feel free to check them out.
I’ve updated the portfolio again. This time, I’ve added some Drannik & Lizzep promotional images under Comic Pages, and I’ve added two images to Illustrations (one of them featured above).
Also, I will be in Kenosha at Rockhead’s Comics and Games on Saturday, May 5th (also known as Free Comic Book Day) selling copies of Drannik & Lizzep #2. If you are in the area, stop by and pick up a comic book.
