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!
I never make these kind of posts on my site, but this time I felt it was important.
Ever since waking up this morning and hearing the news about the Dallas shootings last night that killed five police officers at a peaceful protest, I had this feeling that I couldn’t shake. It was already there because of the two men who were recently gunned down by police that was definitely racially motivated, and the time before that when it hit much closer to my home in the St. Louis area. This time I simply couldn’t make a comment about it on social media and move on, that was not enough. I tried to work on other art projects but this really kept taking my focus. I spent several hours working on this because right here and now that was the best thing for my head space.
I had a table at the first Wizcon that came to St. Louis in 2013. It was rewarding on many levels but due to the high table fee, I still ended up being $100 in the hole after the event. Overall I was selling merchandise faster than I could replace them, one of which was my “Frik’in Cosplay” drawings.
These hand drawn original pieces of art are one of my best sellers at conventions. What they are is a drawing of my main character from my FRIK comic and I throw an embarrassing cosplay outfit on him and he responds to it. He’s a surly type so his responses are usually bitter and sarcastic.
