Still chugging away at the cruise comic, now tentatively titled "Displacement." It keeps getting more involved, and now it's hovering at an estimated 100 pages! It's taking longer than I thought it would, but that means more comics, so that's good. Here's a little preview page:|
As you can probably guess from this page, it was quite a trip.
Sorry about the delay. I'm hoping to be finished with it by CAKE (Where I'll be exhibiting!).
I'm also going to be at MoCCA, TCAF and (in November) Thought Bubble (My first UK show!). It's a short list of conventions again this year. As soon as Relish comes out, I'll blast through as many as will have me.
But it works out nicely, because along with "Displacement," I've also got a few other exciting projects on the horizon this Spring! Like this: Did you guys see my first Adventure Time comic story? It was in Issue 2, and an absolute blast to make! I can't believe how many awesome people are involved with this series. Speaking of, have you heard about this amazing thing? I'm really excited to see the comic, and so pleased to be a part of the cover art!
Also: There's another travel comic I'm going to be making in May, but I'll tell you more about it later because I'm too excited to even deal. Yooou'll seeeee!
It's been a strange and tumultuous few months, but now it's all humid and hot and my priority becomes trying to make my hair look less weird.
Today was the first hot day in NYC. It was pretty and everyone was outside. I managed to snag a half-hour of reading by the river while I waited for the post office to open this morning (I've been getting up early now that I'm on summer hours. It's to do with the light that comes in my bedroom). Did some work, cleaned/groceried, and then I went to the figure drawing session headed-up by an old childhood pal of mine. The model was especially good-- curvy and angular all at once! Here are a few watercolor sketches from the session.
I seriously love drawing naked people so, so much.
Oh, I'm so happy I found your LJ and that you're still on here!
I live in Chicago and yesterday I was having a bad, gray, not so good day so I took my boo to the Harold Washington Library to read comic books. GREAT idea! The whole comic book area was full of friendly looking hip kids with messenger bags who had the same idea (who knew! People have finally discovered that they can share anonymous space somewhere where they don't have to buy coffee to go with the fleeting company),
and there I found "Radiator Days" and I love it so very much and already told everyone else to read it. So good! And somewhere in there, you mention updating Livejournal, and I grinned because I'm happy people are still using this page, too, and so I looked you up just now.
Anyway, I now know so many great things about you and had the totally original idea of being your livejournal friend, and it didn't occur to me that 3000 other people had that idea before me and that you can't have that many friends, but I thought I'd say hi and write you a fanmail comment. Totally beats clicking the 'like' button on facebook, no? :)
