Radioactive Bikini Men From Mars!


I’ve had “Saturday Night Screamer” by Hollywood Burns stuck in my head since I first heard it and it inspired this. They released all their music for pay-what-you-will on bandcamp which I am very grateful for- so many French masters of new dark synthwave

New Headers


putting here so I can use them in the html... hopefully

Thought I’d change blog headers since I’ll be changing the link from comixology to kindle. I submitted Red to kindle and it has said ‘processing your file, this will take a few minutes’ for over a week now, but the last thing they said will take ‘3 to 5 days’ took a month and a half, so I guess everything is proceeding normally!

Red Heads


Completely forgot about this and just refound it. I didn’t know how I was going to handle the photoshop paintings in Red and the Wolfe so I was trying to figure things out, as well as get some weird Red faces out of my system. I knew working for so long on one thing my handiness would change, so I did a lot of prep work to try to keep it to a minimum. Did around a thousand* photoshop paintings before I started the photoshop work on Red, and there are somewhere around a thousand little photoshop paintings in Red. I never copied elements between panels, each panel is an individual photoshop painting.

*couple hundred

Red and the Wolfe Guided View


Almost done doing the guided view. It is killing my hand, and the application grinds to a halt after a few pages so I have to keep closing and reopening it. One thing I don’t like about guided view is how the aspect ratio and text size constantly change as you go panel to panel. That’s something I may plan for in the future.

Crow and Raven Original Sketch


Looking through old scans I found my original Sketchbook page for The Crow and The Raven. Just sat down at starbucks and wrote it, I wrote the text originally to entertain myself but decided to include it as text-to-speech. I cut this up to make the animatic, then made the full size assets in my sketchbook and made the finished video after about 18 editing iterations.

Bob Dole's Fantastic Halloween Wishes


My halloween costume from 1996, my friend was bill clinton. Still a handy mask to have around, featured prominently in “He Who Must Be Obeyed Sets Zealot About a Particular Tasque” and the end of “Winter’s Magical Graspe”
