PSA-Blowing the dust off for a second.

August 14th, 2017

*** I posted this before searching google for the image I was concerned about. And sure enough it had been placed in two separate places out of context for use as a wallpaper. While I’ve removed the image from this site and sent a DMCA notice, I’m sitting here in the middle of the night absolutely livid.

In light of current events I’ve pulled an image from both my (in desperate need of updating) portfolio, and it’s posting as the cover image for the second chapter for The Great Steam War comic I produced years ago. The cover possessed a modified Prussian eagle, the Totenkopf skull and crossbones, and the title of the chapter Blood and Soil. The story is about a Prussian born soldier being shot and killed in the trenches of a Steampunk World War 1. Make no mistake there is no intent to glorify anything in the story, a life is wiped out and all that is seen in the chapter is the life he could’ve had. This wasn’t a story of glorifying what that term has come to mean, but sadly it’s being used as just that. I want no parts of this or association with the people that would rally around this kind of hate.

In the relatively calmer political times this story was produced, I think the cover didn’t need the justification it may need today. Just this weekend a town just 45 minutes drive from me has been set upon by Neo-Nazis and other White Supremacists carrying tiki-torches and shouting the phrase “Blood and Soil”. I don’t even want to pretend there is a correlation between what I was writing and the hate they’re spewing.

I created this design years before I’d ever written or drawn a single comic story to completion. This is much more in tune with my actual political stance. Feel free to share this.

Mexican Bat woman

October 6th, 2016

Until this morning I’d never heard of Mexican Bat Woman. It’s one part Batman 1966 tv show, one part Mexploitation Luchador movie, all parts bootleg.
It’s pretty much custom built for me to like it. Posting link here for when I have time to watch it.

A couple quick concept sketches of the Characters Boy and His Giant, and the villainous Nazi,robot, T-Rex known as Hitler’s Rex. All characters were originally published in the early 1940’s in Clue Comics through Hillman Publishing. they’ve since entered the Public domain.

Script process.

May 10th, 2016

Comics are an interesting art form. In that there’s never been a 100% standard form for many of the processes. Script writing for comics is for example much less draconian than say screen writing is. Anyone that has read up on the subject has likely read anecdotal stories of scripts being tossed out offhand due to the wrong font, of spacing used on the title page of a script.

Comics on the other hand by and large have been have been left out in the hinterlands without such overbearing rules to the format.

For instance a quick look through The Comic Book Script Archive and you’ll notice that virtually no two scripts are formatted exactly the same. But each example there does exactly what it needs to. It tells the story for the artist to interpret. (These are by and large all full script method as opposed to plot first/script last Marvel Method) Some authors go into more or less detail on what is or isn’t in a panel. Some go into more detail on the precise layout of the panels. Others leave room for the artist to come up with breakdowns.

With all that in mind I thought maybe it’d be interesting to work on a comic strip in a fish bowl so to speak. Usually I hide away scripts/pencils/inks until such point as all the pages are completed and at the very least lettered.

Maybe it could be interesting to instead share the process from beginning to end. Have the script available from day one as I work on the strip itself. Maybe having it out there, will inspire me to work faster? I’m not sure but I think it’s worth a shot. Anyway, below is a pdf of one of the scripts I’m currently working on producing. Give it a look. And feel free to let me know what you think.
