Recently, I had a friend of mine shoot a short documentary piece about me, namely some of the struggles I’ve been going through. The video is below. Share with all your friends.
I have put up some new images under the comic pages section of my portfolio. Be sure to check it out when you get the chance.
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:
It has been a while since the last post, so I think it’s time for some updates.
It has been a while since I posted anything here, so I should update everybody on what’s been going on art-wise for me.
-I have a piece on display at Artworks in Kenosha. It is part of show called Draw Works, and there are plenty of other artists to see there. The show only goes until March 28th, though, so if you want to see it, get over there soon.
-I will be at Chicago Zine Fest on Saturday, May 9th from 11am to 6pm. I’ll be selling my comics there, including the latest issue of Drannik & Lizzep. More info about the show, including where it’s located, can be found here.
-Finally, I may be doing an inbound art residency for comics and zines in Chicago later in May. Details are tentative at the moment, but you can find out more about what that entails here.
Drannik & Lizzep #6 is now available on Indyplanet. Click here to get a copy for yourself.
Also, I will be at the opening reception of the Draw Works show at Artworks in Kenosha on February 14th, as I’ve got two pieces in the show. Feel free to stop by and check out my stuff, and maybe even purchase one of them for yourself.
Since it has been a while since my last post, I figured I should probably update on what’s going on:
-Drannik & Lizzep #6 is in the works as I type this. I have completed writing the stories that will go in the issue, and will begin drawing them in the next few days.
-Once again, I have entered the AmericaSCORES Milwaukee Inspired Art Auction. My artwork is featured here. The auction will take place on October 24th at the Milwaukee Public Market.
-I have purchased a table for Milwaukee Zine Fest, which is on November 8th at Polish Falcon in Milwaukee. I will be selling comics and maybe some drawings as well.
-A comic page of mine was featured in Left of the Lake #6. Well, it was actually part of the mini-comic book “Squint”, but it’s there. Go pick up a copy if you happen to be in the Kenosha area.
Some news because I haven’t posted in quite some time:
-The grant has gone through for “The Journal of Mischa”. We won’t hear anything about it til later, though, so keep your eyes open for more later.
-Issue 5 of Drannik & Lizzep is in the works, with the first story for it almost completed. The cover is done by Deidre “Pit-Face” Crouch, whose work you can see here.
-Big news: I’m on the waitlist for CAKE 2014. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean I’ll make it in, but they must have liked my stuff enough to put me on the waitlist for the show. We’ll see what happens in the next few months. Reminder: CAKE 2014 will be in Chicago on May 31st and June 1st. It is an alternative comics show, so even if I don’t get in, please go to it and support my fellow indie comic creators.
I was recently interviewed for the Racine Journal Times. If you want to read the story, click here.
In related news, “The Journal of Mischa” is now complete. Now what we are hoping for is a grant to print it and distribute it to the local high schools. To say that I’m excited is an understatement.
