Page 58, featuring some of my favorite Everett faces so far. He’s got some serious Oliver Hardy stuff going on here. Only 6 more pages left in this chapter, so there’s still time to support my Patreon at the Print Copy level and pre-order your copy of the issue!
Hey! I totally missed it, but last week marked the one-year anniversary of my ongoing Patreon campaign! I launched my comics project on August 15, 2014, and it’s been a great year since. I was able to finish a complete chapter of Ellie Connelly and the Eye of the Vortex for the first time in years, as well as the first folio of a planned series of illustrations based on The War of the Worlds. I also took the opportunity to make some fun new minicomics, like Pac-Man the Barbarian! These have all been fun projects to work on, and I’m really happy to be seeing some progress being made on the longer ones.
I’m really grateful to my supporters who’ve pitched in a buck or more to keep up with my Process Feed, and I hope you enjoy the printed comics your contributions have helped make possible. Your continued support has been really encouraging, and gives me the inspiration to keep working at my stories.
As my work-schedule opens up a bit in the next few months, I’ve got big plans for the next year, including at least one more chapter of Ellie Connelly (maybe even two!), another War of the Worlds folio, more minicomics, more art projects, more foundational work for future stories, more fan art, more in-person appearances, and more of just everything.
Thanks again to all my supporters, and for those of you not yet supporting my project, what are you waiting for?
I’ll be exhibiting this August at the first ever Artist Alley Comics Fest, here in Portland, OR! It’s being run by the fine, enthusiastic folks at The Spritely Bean, and is sure to be a fun afternoon spent outside. Admission is free, so come by, say howdy, and pick up some comics from myself and all of these other great exhibitors!
More details to come!
Hey, all! Today’s the day, the Artist Alley Comic Fest takes place today here in Portland! If you’re not familiar with the show yet, it’s a first-time event being run by Huynh and Addam Pool, the enthusiastic folks at Portland’s comics cafe, The Spritely Bean. It’s a pure Artist’s Alley show, with 30 tables set up in the parking lot behind their cafe. The setup reminds me a lot of how Stumptown got its start, with 22 tables in an old church. I know firsthand the kind of thing that can grow from such humble beginnings, so I’m really interested to see this show take its first steps today, and wish them the best of luck!
I’m also excited to be on the other side of the table again for the first time in several years. Exhibiting at more shows has been on my list of things to start doing for a while now, but I didn’t want to overtax my resources (financial and social). I’m happy to be making new comics again, and looking forward to introducing new folks to the adventures of Ellie Connelly!
So, I hope to see you all there! It’s gonna be hot today, so come get some nice cool comics!
I’m having a quick sale on custom sketchcards and character portraits, exclusively for people who are coming to the Artist Alley Comic Fest this coming Sunday! Order your custom art today, and pick it up from me in person at the show! There’s even a $10 discount from the regular prices, so you have even more reasons to pick up some Custom Original Fan-art right now!
See you there, I hope!
