As the year draws to a close and I reflect back on everything I’ve done this year, I realize I’m exhausted, lol. Not only have my ART CLASSES more or less taken off where it’s become a semi-part time job (which includes homeschool, after school and Girl Scout badges), but I’ve also cranked out two issues of my newest comic, THE NORMLINGS, reformatted HOLES IN IT to be a vertical comic, and slowly worked on the FRIK Anthology book. (sorry for that one, it’s taking longer than I want.)
This month marks my one year anniversary teaching 8-12 year old kids on how to make their own comics. Besides the KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP that started it all, I also now teach a HOW TO DRAW MONSTERS class, After School classes, Homeschool classes, and I help Girl Scouts earn their “Drawing” and “Comic Artist” badges. I have a lot of plates spinning right now and I hope to get more traction with the coming year! I’ve managed to turn this into a semi-part time job, but I can always do more and WANT to do more!
In my previous Artwork Related post, I went over all the current art projects that have taken up my time lately, but this time around I wanted to focus on the art classes that I teach. If you know anyone who may benefit from any of these classes, please click on the sharing buttons at the bottom of this page! Thanks!
KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP
I need to get back in gear and hold more of these classes. I also need to get the ADVANCED KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP ready to go, which is something that was put aside due to everything else. Sorry about that parents of kids who’ve already taken this! Join my NEWSLETTER and you will be first to hear about when the class will take place!
Hey everyone, it’s been almost two months since my last post, and I wanted to give an update on what’s been going on with my art and classes during that time. I have a lot of plates spinning in the air right now! This is a two part post, the first part will be about my art.
THE NORMLINGS – ISSUE 2
The vast majority of my time these past two months has been taken up working on issue 2 of THE NORMLINGS, and I’m happy to say it is now finished and ready for the printer! I don’t know when it will ready to sell as I have to do the next thing first…
MY FRIK DRAWINGS ARE COMPLETE!
It took me 41 days to complete 142 Frik’in Cosplay drawings from start to finish, and I only had to put my hand on ice twice in that period of time. My goal was to get it done before end of October, and I managed to blow it out of the water because I set aside every other facet of my life in order to pull this off. Now I just need all of you to buy these from me at Geekinomicon and it’ll be all worthwhile! (or hell, buy them now, I don’t mind.)
In other news, apparently because I like self abuse so much, I am seriously considering having THE NORMLINGS Issue #2 finished and printed in time for this convention. All of the scripts have already been written for it, so I’m 1/3rd the way done. Haven’t bought Issue #1 yet? BUY IT NOW for $5+S/H!
