Hey guys, how are you doing?
I thought I'd make a quick update on the state of my comic-making this year. A couple of things I feel like I should address:1. The Christmas Comic
I couldn't get this comic going. I made this year's comic during a stressful time (I was in the Disney Competition) and wasn't feeling great as I was making it. It showed (tonally) in the comic too, and I don't feel comfortable sharing a comic I wasn't happy working on. I still made a ton of work though, and some of it I'm really sad to let go of (the entire comic has been sketched out in fact), but I feel it's best to leave it behind. I may revisit the storyline with a different tone another time, but for now there's no Christmas comic this year (last year?). 2. Daily doodles on Twitter
I'm challenging myself to post a drawing everyday on my Twitter
if you're interested
I'll be posting some of my favorite panels from the unfinished Christmas comic there too.3. I'm in an Anthology project!
An anthology project that'll be published and hopefully available online as well! The anthology will have comics and illustrations from my very talented peers. I did a 5-page short story comic in there that I worked sooo hard on (and that I've teased a bit about on my Tumblr
). I've sent my submission and as far as I know, it's still in the judging process. From what I hear though, all the submissions did really well. So hopefully you guys will have a really awesome book to read in your hands!4. A Webcomic??
So I'm in a Webcomic class at school and by the end of that class we'll be posting the fruits of our labor to the internets. I made a new very interesting project for that class
I know some of you guys who found me on Facebook had sneak peeks of the project already
and I am WAY too excited to show you guys what we made. More on that later!5. I'm heading to CTNX this year!
That's right you heard me! I still got some travel stuff to work out, but I am going (along with a bunch of my super talented friends)! I know some of you guys are going, and I hope to meet you there!
In general, thank you for being patient with me and my undulating art farts and my late replies (art school is tough!). We're very lucky to have such an understanding and responsive readership, it makes us excited to share more with you
