Hell of a Quarter

So this quarter absolutely sucked. I've hadn't felt that bad in a long, long time. However, Thursday and Friday made it all worthwhile! Went to Kevin Burkhalter's party on Thursday and hung out for a while (which is kind of unusual for me). Then Friday, I took part in the SEQALAB podcast, so I'd like to thank everyone that let me join in. Had to share a mic with Brett Muller (you have to get real close to them, so we were practically making out the whole time... calm down, ladies). I really recommend listening to that stuff. It's good for having on in the background when you're drawing (which is exactly how I'd discovered it... two nights previous...). After that, some of us went bowling for Pranas' birthday. That was a sorry display for most involved (except Wheeler) but still was hella fun! Plus I almost fell over!

So the end totally justified the entire quarter. So did the way my finals looked! I'll be putting those up here gradually, as I see fit. Here's the first, a series of covers for the comic I've been working for. I did these for Tom Lyle's visual storytelling class. I'm really happy with the way these came out. I also got him to sign my Robin trades, which I'm psyched about!

PS: I see the mistake on this one. I'm going to edit it when I get a chance

Another stip!!

Weeha! I's a lil drunked tonight. Here's another strip. I know there are no background, but I was totally in the middle of some kind of work. I dunno, I had a bad quarter and it's over now so I'm happy.

Concerned that the line between me and Andy is fading. Today I said several things in webspeak... Worrying.

Captain Ahab

This is some old stuff from Larison's Pencil & Inking I class (which is now called Visual Storytelling). It's a futuristic Ahab hunting whales in space. I'm pretty sure it was originally published in Heavy Metal some time ago (not my version... I wish!) and I don't know who wrote it, so I send my apologies to whoever authored this script! These are just pencils, so they're bound to look sketchy. Derp!

Man, I hate it when you find an awesome blog (like this one) and then notice that the blogger in charge of updating it is too preoccupied to bother to update it (like me)! So here it is, the first new post in, like, freakin' forever!

I went through a nasty creative slump this past summer, like to the point where I didn't want to draw comics anymore... Just read them... ALL THE TIME!! But now I'm safely back into it, it just took a little inspiration.

Bailey moved out of town, so I don't get to see her all the time anymore, and that's kind of depressing. I kind of attribute her absence to my lack of work ethic, appetite loss and general feeling of lethargy. We visit and have Skype and Webcams, so it's all cool really (get your mind out of the gutter).

Anyhow, I picked up where I left off with Andy The Retard... The only problem was that last Quarter, my strips got printed sporadically, which kind of spaced out my continuity (the last of my strips didn't even get printed, which threw a big spanner into... my face). So I decided to screw the storyline in one big strip and start over with just gags and stuff. Here's the first of many!


The Andy strips had gotten far too overproduced for my liking. The tones and everything looked cool, but the strip lost that harsh black and white look that I loved about those first strips. I'd gotten too far from what I'd started, so I went back to basics and I think the strip does better for it!
There! Consider this blog relaunched!

I'm still alive and I'm pouring all my efforts into my finals right now, but after that, I'll have lots of goodies to post! See you soon!

Joe Bevill

Yes, the latest Andy The Retard strip features my good friend Joe Bevill! AND HERE IT IS!!
Yes, here it is over a week before the District will print it!

Things are going well enough for me. On Thursday, I'll have been together with Bailey for two years and it feels like a birthday! Fun! I've made peace at work with my hated co-worker. I've bought some lovely out of print comic books. It just keeps getting better!

Bye my darlings!

Andy The Retard: Katfall

A new quarter begins and you'd think that'd mean new Andy, but NOT SO!! I've only got two strips done so far! I blame Larison... and Kneece... and my girlfriend. She's great.

This quarter, I set out on a new Andy story arc called "Katfall," which is loosely based on the Knightfall story arc from Batman in 1994. Here are parts one and two of the arc!
