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.

Oregon Trail Revisited

My brother and I are making a comic about the Oregon Trail video game. I don’t know if everyone’s familiar with this game, but this is edu-tainment failing at its best. For example, everyone would name themselves something cool, and then name everyone in their party ¬†things like My Butt, My Ass, Some Poop, because then the computer would say “My Butt was bitten by a snake” or “Some Poop has cholera”. Expect more of these in the coming months.
