News: Small Press Expo

Well, I have some exciting news for everyone!

I will be an exhibitor at this year's Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD. The Expo is September 26th and 27th, and you can buy admission for the weekend or for a single day if you like.

In addition to touting some completely new comics, which you will be able to see the inklings of up here as they reach a finished state, I will also be selling printed books of Bad Grammar: Chapter 1. This in particular is exciting news for me.

So, if you're in the area, please stop on by to see me, and of course all the tons of wonderfully talented people who will also be selling their craft. Or, if you're not, buy a plane ticket now. I know I'll certainly be breaking the bank, with all the comics I'll be buying!

Time flies

It truly does! I can't believe summer's almost over already. Well, in any case, I just thought I'd post the final sketch for the yard sale poster, the final of which will be printed at both 8.5x11 and 11x17. It's times like this I really appreciate photoshop. You can see the final product at my main blog if you like.

And to follow I just thought I'd do another "hey look at the different stages of my work" thing. Just to see what a sketch looks like compared to an ink drawing:

As you can see, this is a fairly tight sketch for me. And also, the subject matter is undeniably strange, which tends to happen when I'm left to my own devices. And the final result:

That is one "lucky dog" if I do say so myself. There isn't much of a difference, except for the line weight and such. And, of course, I sometimes change lines around because I can't necessarily see everything in the sketch even with a light box. But it all turns out okay in the end. In any case, I'm glad I got some practice in. Well, that's all for today!

The Yard Sale to end all yard sales

So anyone need some useless junk? Come on down to long island! Anyway, this is what happens when an illustrator and a print media expert get together to make yard sale posters:

As you can probably tell, the theme is "juice." Anyway, I'm hoping to get back in the habit of posting here soon. Sorry for all the floundering about on my part.

Sorry it's been so long... I've been updating with some sketches on Speed of Flight, though. That's the thing about having too many blogs, I guess.

As you can see, I'm having a yard sale (though not at my own abode). If anyone lives in the area, drop on by for some juicy deals! In any case, a friend of mine and I are helming the poster aspect, and these are the two top sketches for it. While I like the idea of a citrus fruit font, having the whole poster written that way will sacrifice too much readability, so I'll be doing some more sketching of course. Just thought I'd post something up here to show I'm not dead!
