Revamped Charge


In an effort to get my house in order, I'm redrawing some simple old illustrations I've been using in my portfolio section, and coloring them. This is the first one, "Charge!"

Pgs 18 & 19

Of the doppelganger comic.


All these pages look more final than they actually are. Since I do everything with a tablet, they look inked, but they're really rough drafts. Not a lot of shading yet, etc.

More Doppelganger pages


New pages (16 & 17) from the Doppelganger comic. Page 17 took ding dong forever, but I bring the crosshatching upon myself, so I can't really complain.

Samandal 2

In a long overdue post (many months so), I did the covers for Samandal Issue 2 (Issue 1 published my Vacant Lot comic). They're a pretty amazing comics magazine published out of Lebanon. Here's the front cover (colored by them):

And it wraps around to the back cover:

And Bad Dreams was also published on the inside. Here's a snap of it.

Samandal has free issue translations online (it's published in Arabic, English and French). Here's issue one, and here's issue two. They're also available for purchase in these places.

Doppelganger


This is the first draft of page 8 in a new comic I'm wading in to, working title: Doppelganger. Looking at about 32 pages, so this one might take a bit of time to churn out.

APE stuff

APE went reasonably well for a first time. Subjecting yourself to the rejection of hundreds of your peers was more punishing that I'd expected, though. The stuff I brought was:
• A printed collection of Bad Dreams, The Vacant Lot and Spring Heeled Jack under the title "Frown Town #1" (with more numbers to come, hopefully).
Tough Break as a standalone
• Silkscreened t-shirts of the Indrind Press logo (more on that later)
• Silkscreened t-shirts of a slightly reworked version of the villains panel in Bad Dreams
• Silkscreened prints of the Mad Bunny Mask and Gasmask
• Fort Ord, which I'll put up online one of these days, a collaboration with Steven Foundling

Steve and I shared a table and were publishing under the name "Indrind Press." Steve had a Morrissey/Edward Gorey mashup that was the runaway hit of our little table, and a minicomic about unicorns and babies. I've been kicking around the idea of making up an Indrind Press website, and hopefully selling off some of our overstock from the convention. Here's the logo I'd whipped up three weeks ago for the products:

And higher rez images of the two masks:
