Negative Boy, episode 5 has been launched

Well I finally dropped Negative Boy, episode 5 “When Bad Seeds Bloom” over at Global Comix. Go check it out! I’m happy to see this out there in the wild, and I’m already plotting out episode 6!  

Areas I want to improve as a cartoonist

I don’t think I’m alone in this, but I tend to see the flaws in my own work first. I think that is part of what any creative person struggles with in developing their craft. I will confess to generally disliking my own drawing, it’s something I’m plagued by, but also grateful for because it…

Character sketch of the group

I decided to subscribe to Clip Studio for my iPad a few weeks ago.  I already have ProCreate so I was reluctant to add yet another subscription, but honestly I’ve gotten tired of Procreate’s tools. I feel like the pen tools are just not quite right for my tastes. Yeah, Procreate is still an amazing,…

Rest in Peace Ed Piskor

Last night I heard via an instagram post, that Ed Piskor took his own life. I never met Ed, but he and Jim Rugg, his co-host on the Cartoonist Kayfabe YouTube channel had a big impact on me. I remember years ago, reading some of Ed’s seminal work Hip Hop Family Tree on-line, I loved…

I’m still here!

Believe it or not I’m 2 pages away from completing the b&w artwork for episode 5! My day job has been like a see-saw lately; sometimes really busy….other times not. When things slow down I’m able to work on Negative Boy more.  So what I’m working on is finalizing the epilogue to the main story….

Splash page from episode 5

In episode 5 I’m introducing a new character. Well, not really a “new” character, he was actually introduced back in the epilogue of episode 2. We’ll learn a bit more about him and where he fits in to this story in episode 5. This page is an intro page, to transition to a new part…

Episode 5 preview

We are live at Global Comix

So we are now fully moved to GlobalComix.com, you can read the story here. I’ve completely redrawn the first issue, adding several new pages as an intro to it. I’ve also been tweaking the dialog throughout all 3 episodes, so the newest version of the story will be on GlobalComix. I won’t be adding any…

Quick Update, Future Plans and Some New (old) Artwork

So I’ve recently discovered GlobalComix.com – there was an article in Comics Journal (I think) about their plans to launch their own app. As someone that prefers reading comics on my tablet, I was pretty intrigued. They’re looking to compete with Amazon’s Comixology and their app. What I really love about GlobalComix.com is that it’s…

Episode Three is Live

Ladies and gentlemen we have lift off! After many sleepless nights, second guessing and fingernail gnawing I’ve uploaded the third installment of this story. The next installment will begin production soon, I have a ton of ideas I want to try to bring into the story and I’m super excited to get into it. I’ll…
