Halloweekend

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

Well we are closing in on the end of the YEAR 40 Project, just a few more pages of October to do, and then the 22 day countdown in November. You can read the October comics over here for now.

I have also gotten a bunch of new Page One Hundred Project submissions this week, one from Italy and a bunch more from our Page One Hundred friends in Croatia! Some cool looking stuff there.

And it is Halloweekend, which means I am busting out the Mega-j!

Canzine and Stuff

Oh ha, I forgot to mention I was going to be at Canzine

It was fun being at this show and the Word on the Street where it is a little less of a comic crowd, so you see different folk. Also at both these locations I was able to say “There is a scene in True Loves that is set right across the street!” Also, at Canzine, after I chatted with people for a while, and then they sheepishly left without buying anything, they would say “Thank you” which I found kind of funny and endearing.

Later at the comic jam, Colin Upton put forth the question (as he periodically does) “How many comics have you done?” as we both have quite a few kicking around. And I know I have printed over 50 comics, but then it gets pretty murky as I have all this stuff that I have only ever put on the internet, and sometimes they are just one offs, or unfinished, or whatever, so how would I count them? Do the drunk comics count as one comic each? Or do they all count as one? Or do they not count at all? So I think I am giving up on the count.

In other news, the final comic of my YEAR 40 September comics is up. Read em all over here!

Daredevil?

Daredevil

For some reason this weekend I got the idea stuck in my head that if they were to make a Daredevil movie he should engage in parkour style acrobatic feats, as a highly trained human, not the Matrix style stuff that was in the Ben Affleck movie. But anyways, it seems to me that Daredevil would be better serves by actual people doing impressive non-faked physical acts. Check out these parkour dudes.

Anyhow, this line of thinking led me to think that he should have an outfit that he could move about in, not some bulky leather deal. So I was trying to draw that. It came out kind of goofy looking. My problem is that I always default to something like a modified track suit (like in “the Jam” by Bernie Mireault).

Walking Down that Hill

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

I have started putting up my late September comics, you can read them here. I also noticed last night that somewhere along the line I screwed up my links and tags and stuff on the site here, so apologies if you have been having troubles. Hopefully I can repair it.
