Sci-Fi San Francisco

I’m pleased to announce that I will be a part of an anthology done by my colleague Lauren Davis. Called SciFi San Francisco, this anthology is a collection of science-fiction comics set in the Bay Area. Lauren has done a great job of curating this anthology, and I cannot wait for it to come out. I do not have a definite release date as of this writing, but I will keep everyone abreast of changes!

My piece is called For Rent, and it is about inter-dimensional realty as a solution to the current housing situation in the Bay Area.

I worked on For Rent with my friend Eric Wong. You may remember him from our comic Kentucky Killzone, which is available on Gumroad here.

To whet your appetites, here’s the first page of my story For Rent!

Politics in Space

Greetings, friends! Today I would like to blame my lack of posts on several back to back projects that took most of my time in the last two months.

My first project is called Kentucky Killzone, and I am working on it with my friend and colleague Eric Wong. He’s a great writer and I’ve been having a ball working with him. The premise of Kentucky Killzone is very similar to Die Hard, but it tells the story behind the “Bowling Green Massacre”, which is a fictional terrorist attack fabricated by that news anchor Kellyanne Conway. The issue that we finished is like a pilot episode for more adventures! Here’s the cover and a sample page:

 

The other project that I’ve been working on is a non-fiction piece for the Project Censored 2017 Book, which I worked on with professor and author Adam Bessie. Ever since I assistant taught a class on comics journalism, I’ve been enthused about collaborating on an editorial or journalistic comic, and lo, my hopes were realized. Adam’s an incredible writer and I look forward to working with him in the future. Keep an eye out for Project Censored’s 2017 book.

The premise of this piece is the nature of alternative facts in the Trump administration and how they parallel certain SciFi tropes. Here is a sample page:

Terminator Ink Wash

Since I’ve been so very taken with ink wash of late, I want to show the progression of a highly referenced ink wash piece. For subject matter, I have used an Endoskeleton.

 

I apply lighter tones to the penciled drawing. This is the first few photos.terminator endoskeleton terminator

Then I add dark grays.terminator

Then black, and I adjusted the levels in photoshop.terminator

Then a color layer in PSterminator

And some gradients to render the Endoskeleton a little more.terminator

I’m Back

Hi friends!

I have been in an intensive bout of Grad school this past month, so I haven’t been posting much. On top of that, my internet is constantly giving me the run around. Anyway, here’s a sand person I colored in two ways.
