Delicate Adventures in 3D

I have embarked on a Delicate Adventure to make a strong table presence for my web comic Delicate Adventures. 

I drew up some basic plans here, keeping in mind the needs of this statuette, such as a pedestal for stability and a sign that locks into the egg with a peg.

Then I passed this off to my friend who will render it in a 3D program.

Next, I pass this file off to my friend who can 3D print the egg, the pedestal, and the egg itself.

Once everything is printed, this is what it looks like.

Here is the final egg, painted (by my friend with the 3D printer) and assembled! If you see  Delicate Adventures and me at a convention, look out for this beautiful statue!

New Years Projects!

Happy New Years, Friends!
Oh, how I wish these gaps between posts would subside, but alas, delicate adventures has me busier than an egg with arms and legs. Speaking of which, I just attended Newcon in Portland, Oregon. I peddled my guides to jerks, nerds, and rasslin’. Why just look at all these volumes!

What else have I been working on, you say? I’ve been making pretty good headway on my thesis for my MFA program. In doing so, I’ve been getting more acquainted with brush pens, which I’ve come to love. Here’s a panel from my thesis.

And here’s a self portrait I did with a different brush pen and ink wash:

And as far as design projects go, I’ve made some pretty neat molds. A while ago, I made a ceramic devil head, and I just recently got around to casting it! The horns and the face are separate molds, and I paint the eyes. I want to put hardware in the back and make it into a belt buckle.
