New comics, rejected art, prints, and an Interview!

[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

Neglected the blog here a bit.

Been swamped trying to get in some new work.
Thought i’d post a round of catch up!

Ok, well to start, PRESS! Not sure if the timing helped or hurt,
but weekend of SDCC I had an interview with Chris Arrant posted on Robot6!

It’s pretty good I think?

If you’re looking to introduce someone to my work it’s almost perfect, though I wish the art linked to the sites more. A good little talk about past a future plans.

Also I’ve uploaded
a new 8 page sequence to Dream Life!
Over due I know! Sorry about that.
This brings the story to 113 pages.

One of the dark nightmare pages i’ve made available as a print as well along with a few other new items expanding on my line on Society6. Only been set with them a short time this summer, and sold 6 prints so far. Not sure what to measure it against but not bad for a start. Could be better?

Also a few prints of my father’s work has sold too. Need to get back to scanning his negatives, something i’ve been bumping down the priority list as I look for more work. But really should put some more prints up from the stuff I already have scanned.

Being kind of broke i’m pondering whether to go ahead and publish the new edition of Revolver i’ve gotten as far as the digital proof on CreateSpace. It would be best to have a print proof but things are too tight right now.

Also thinking, is this is the right time to start an indiegogo campaign for Dream Life? Need to make a clip if i’m going to do it.

I almost thought i’d landed a YA adventure series!

Doing illustrations for the chapter heads and some graphics.

Sadly the job fell through though. Really sucks, would have taken care of me for work for a nice long stretch. Here’s bellow is a slide show of the two illustrations I did for them, and some of the concept sketches too. Going to add the final art to my portfolio under line, and I’ll think start a YA sections too soon… Won’t say what the book or publisher was, as they decided to go in a “younger direction”. But they were best sellers. Wonder though what they had in mind. I tested these out on some YA readers I know, my girlfriends many nieces and nephews. They seemed to dig them! Ah well. Hope something else like it comes up again.
