hiatus

I’ve been struggling with one page of comics for, seriously, months now. I redrew a two page spread, bigger and bigger. Then I visited the magical Ghostshrimp National Forest!

Ghostscouts is a big part of my life. I try to get up there as often as I can. It seeps with creative juices from the trees and sometimes the morning dew. I talked with fellow cartoonists, animators, creatives, and friends. This trip was by far the best vacation I’ve ever taken in my adult life.

I’ve been working at a job in a kitchen that I quite like. I dont have nearly enough time to draw as I used to. I think I’ve reached a point where I need to shift gears IN my life. I’m going to finish this third chapter of Baby Knife and take a break from comics. After this breakthrough page, the rest of this issue is all panels and easy stuff for me to wrap my head around.

I kind of feel like crap, being tired in afternoons, with no want to draw comics. I’m sure I’ll still draw one page comics from time to time and post them. so, stay tuned. stay tuned in, like, a year.

i blame instagram

It dawned on me that I never post to this blog because I’m too busy posting everything to Instagram. I posted this joke, and it got the most likes I’ve ever gotten (40). Here’s a color version:

no peaking

I’ve mostly been working on Baby Knife book two. I redrew a lot of it recently, because I drew half of it last year. It requires that I draw a lot of kudzu, so it takes a long time.

On days I get out of work early, I’ve been drawing some diary comic stuff. Here’s some of that:

So follow my Instagram if you want more stuff. I try to post at least one picture a day.

paying for it

I restarted Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain because I forgot what was going on slash I forgot most of the controls. I forgot that the intro is two hours long. Getting pumped to play it again, I drew some Quiet and D-Dog fan art:

It’s nice to have photoshop again. It will for sure make me blog more often. Paying for it monthly, kind of sucks. It’s a good thing my CCS student ID doesn’t have an expiration date. That also helps me get into movies cheap all the time.

I never learned how to work InDesign, so I need photoshop to lay out this zine i’m working on. I did the cover today. Kera’s going to watercolor it, so photoshop didn’t help there.

Go back and drink a sip of alcohol every time I start a sentence with “I” and you’ll be wasted. SO full of myself!

two thousand LATE-teen

Wow, I haven’t blogged in a WHILE! I hate to blame not having photoshop, but I basically can’t scan and clean up comics without it.

I’m working on a monthly comic subscription service. For an undetermined amount of American dollars a month, you’ll receive at LEAST an 8 page comic a week.

I’m still figuring out the kinks of it all. More to come soon. Until then, here’s an older comic about playing Breath Of The Wild (now in color):

Hope you are having great 2018 so far.

dicks in GoT?

For some reason, I woke up super early today. I decided to go to the corner coffee shop and draw. I’ve been telling people this story, recently, that happened to me at work. I figured I’d draw it today:

The A Team

The last episode of Game of Thrones, was pretty epic. It brought together some of our favorite characters. I drew this during my second watch-through:

Ser Jorah is the hardest and least fun to draw.

Life is Stranger Things

So, one of my favorite games in the last few years is Life is Strange. I started playing it right when my wife and I started dating and we both love it. It’s not for everyone, I know. We super like it.

Also, we can’t wait for the second season of Stranger Things!

So I did this mash up of two of my favorite things:

life-is-stranger-things-color

I’ll be making prints to sell at shows if anyone is interested. Also, I want to fix the lettering. I drank too much coffee and tried to make straight lines. It didn’t work out so well.

Also, a few weeks ago I drew this Naruto fan art. Then I lost that page. I need to go back and read all the manga.
