#inktober2017

Not too far back I wrote about my first experience with Inktober. To sum up: it was a big deal for me! Drawing and posting one picture a day completely changed the way I work and, by extension, my life.

So when Inktober 2017 came around, I was totally and completely ready for it. For the theme, I thought it’d be cool to do what I did last year and draw every character from the video game Overwatch. So I did!

Compared to last year’s drawings, I think I improved quite a bit!

If I took one thing away from Kumoricon, it’s that I should be playing Persona 5. Apparently it’s a pretty big deal?

Also: people REALLY like graphic novels about sad robots! I’ve never had an item that consistently sells as well as my little robot book. It’s a nice, new feeling!

More cons are happening! This time you’ll be able to meet my current human form at an anime convention called Kumoricon! It’s an exciting real thing that is totally happening and not something I’m making up!

I wouldn’t do that!

#RCCC 2017

There’s something about cons that really gets me pumped to create. Maybe it’s being surrounded by all of the amazing artists of Artist Alley, or the waves of incredibly nice people buying and complimenting my art, or just being completely emotionally exhausted by the end of it. Whatever it is, the second I get home I immediately get to work on one of the crazy new projects that is my current obsession.

And this year was no different! I go to RCCC every year and this was definitely my best and favorite year of all time.

It was A++

Panel: Filling In The Pieces: Comics Biography
White Flint Auditorium 9/16 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
When doing a comics biography, how do cartoonists approach the material they have at hand? For Box Brown, who did a biography of Andre the Giant, he struggled to find material that might reveal the wrestler’s inner life. Anais Depommier had to sift through a mountain of material for her biography of Jean-Paul Sartre, a task made all the more difficult considering how much the philosopher wrote about himself. Luke Howard had to deal with a historically and racially sensitive topic in ragtime creator Ernest Hogan. Moderator Chris Mautner will lead the discussion. Anais Depommier appears courtesy of a grant by The Cultural Services of the French Embassy.

Rose City Comic Con 2017

RCCC2017Promo

I’m going to be at RCCC again this year! But this time won’t be like my other years tabling there, oh no. For this year I will have in my possession a tome of incredible power. A book containing knowledge beyond imagining. A book about a little robot. And his friend.

It’s LOOK. It’s the book I made. That’s the book I’m talking about.

Hope to see you there!

Looking Back

A year after finishing LOOK, I drew this short prequel story. It takes place many, many years before the events of the book and we get to see a bit more of how Artie and Owen’s relationship works.

Enjoy!
