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.
“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.
There is only one week left before this, so if you want to sign up, do so here.
Also, I’ve put up a new comic page under the portfolio, so if you get the opportunity, check it out.
Just wanted to inform you all that the class I’m teaching on how to make cartoon characters is coming up very soon on the 11th. If you want to sign up for it, click here. There is not a whole lot of time left. In the meantime for some other content, I’ve uploaded a new image to the Miscellaneous section of the Portfolio tab, plus these pictures I took last Friday at an art show at the Racine Arts Council.
I will be at Monster 2012 at Artworks of Kenosha this Saturday. If you are in the Kenosha area, stop on by. It starts at 6pm, and the gallery is located at 5002 7th Avenue.
I’ve also added a new image to the Illustrations section of the Portfolio tab above, so go ahead and check it out.
Last Saturday was the first Artwalk I had been some sort of part of since I took a trip to Los Angeles back in July. Unlike that Artwalk, however, this one didn’t turn into a riot.
In all seriousness, though, I had a good time at the event, despite only selling one comic and not staying the whole time due to weather. It was very cool and windy because it was right next to the just-completed Wisconsin Ave. bridge, and later on it started to rain. Despite this, I made my presence known, and I got a few photos from the event as well.
I visited the Drink and Draw event at Frank’s Power Plant last Friday. It was a good opportunity to meet new people and make connections, as well as draw to our heart’s content. While there, I showed off my portfolio as well as “Drannik & Lizzep” to several different people. Many of them compared my stuff to “Scott Pilgrim” as well as to Skottie Young, another comic book artist whose work I’ve checked out. A good example of his art can be found here.
Photos from the event can be found on the Drink & Draw Milwaukee Facebook page, specifically here.
Although I have no photos of the event myself, I do have sketches that I did while I was there:
