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.

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.

straight up sketchin’

To warm up the last few days, I went on walks around my neighborhood and drew some stuff. I still don’t have photoshop on this new computer, so bare with the crappiness:

I’m working on a super short mini. Maybe it’ll only be 8 pages. I’ll share more on that, soon.

too much Zelda

A while ago, I drew these comics about the new Legend of Zelda game, Breath of the Wild. Just, my thoughts about stuff in this amazing game.

Then I forgot to post them. (Muzu might be my favorite character)

THEN! a bunch of stuff happened in my life, work wise! I quite a huge restaurant job, because it was closing. I started at a sister restaurant (much smaller) that paid WAY better. Then, they closed, too! So, for the next month, I’m just going to live off the land. Take a stab at this whole “comics” thing i know and love.

So if you want a commission or know someone who’d be into my art-stuff, let me know. I can pretty much draw anything, at this point.

Back From the Ashes

The next issue of Baby Knife was completed in a month! Sadly, my computer completely conked out. The screen would just cut off after 30 minutes. So I couldn’t even scan all the pages or mess with them in photoshop. I gave all the pages to the publisher, Woolly Press. I went up there to help with printing a few weeks ago (Woolly press is my very pregnant sister and her husband). It was all set to print and then my sister had her baby!

Welcome to the world, Caulder Francis Sutherland! Three weeks early but very healthy.

So Baby Knife: Book Infinity has been postponed for a little bit. Here’s two pages I did for my buddy’s anthology, Milk and Honey.

In other news, I got a NEW computer. An absolutely gorgeous 27-inch iMac with 5K display. It almost hurts my eyes sometimes. I don’t have photoshop anymore. I downloaded a program called gimp. It pretty much sucks. I just spent an hour trying to figure out how to color on it. I give up. I’ll just wait until someone can get me a copy of photoshop CS2 or something. I drew this, with full intent of coloring it. Oh well.

I’ve been playing Breath of The Wild a bunch. Aside from being super pretty, I’d say its just as immersive as GTAV. I just like how my experience in the game is completely different than Kera’s. Like I watched a falling star skate the sky and I ran over to were it landed and now I have a fallen star in my inventory. Much like the fishing in FFXV, the cooking is super fun.

 

*edit* i just spent the last few hours getting together enough rupees to buy a house in the game. To do so, I had to kill a buncha monsters. I climbed to the top of a mountain and there was a dude moping around talking about how it was “lover’s peak” or something. The pond at the top was a heart with a crack in it. Then i glided (glid?) down to take out more monsters at night. Went back to cook foods to sell. Brought the money to the house owner. He demanded 30 “wood”. I had to go chop down more trees. I ran out of edged weapons to do so. I fast traveled back to the beginning to get the original woodcutter dude’s axe. Chopped the trees. Sold the foods. Got the house. Now i have an empty zeroes and ones place to hang my favorite sword. This game’s SO pretty!
