This is quite a milestone for me, because as much as I love floppies and my weekly visit to the comic shop – digital comics are the future. They may just save the medium, and American Literacy. Yes, I have high hopes. But I digress.
The colored and remastered version of Shaman’s Stone (which originally appeared in black & white in Senryu) is now available in Digital Webbing Presents #4.
With direct-to-consumer digital downloads all the rage I thought I’d jump into the fray and offer up Senryu in a special digital collected-edition for anyone who likes to read comics on their iPad, iPhone, laptop or other PDF e-reader of choice.
That’s right kiddies, you can now get a beautiful high resolution digital copy Senryu, complete with extras for only $2.
The time seems right and with more creators offering up their work directly to their fans and consumers I thought it would be a good experiment to release Senryu this way and see what happened.
While freelancing to pay the bills I’ve been hard at work on my first ever original graphic novel The Old Ones, and am happy to be posting the first update of my progress.
My good friend and Space-Gun Studio mate Jake Ekiss has been helping me refine the story and a few weeks ago we finished the final script for the first chapter. Below are the first 7 pages of blue lines, ruled and ready to ink.
I’ll be posting more updates as I complete pages and hit milestones, but won’t be posting any finished art until I’m well into the project. When the time comes we’ll be launching a proper stand-alone site to host The Old Ones as a once-weekly webcomic.
Follow me on Twitter and Facebookfor random updates that don’t make the blog and you’ll be able to catch more of The Old Ones as it comes to life.
Wow, what a crazy month it’s been. My apologies for neglecting the blog but the new day job has taken it’s toll on my free time and after working on freelance, finishing up commissions, and the constant connection to Twitter and Facebook there’s not much room left for blog posts. I guess the new research is true, blogs are going the way of the Do-Do.
But have no fear, I won’t be neglecting you beautiful internet masses, and have several cool bits of news to announce.
First off, my new employer Rockfish Interactive has moved into its new Frisco office (photos on my Flickr account), and I’ve settled comfortably into the role of a senior designer/art director.
I can’t say I don’t miss working from home and drawing all the time, but it’s nice to design again, get back up to speed on interactive work and produce storyboards and spot illos while getting a nice salary and bennies to boot.
The other bit of news is the official commencement of my next project, Lights in The Sky. Friends and family have long known about my fascination with UFOs and this summer I’m going to share my thoughts, theories and personal experiences on the matter.
The plan is to offer it up for free as an ongoing webcomic, and if all goes as planned my fellow Space-Gun Studio mates will also have projects kicking off. You may even see Space-Gun webcomics in the near future.
That’s it for now, below is the first promo image (and possible cover) for LITS. I hope you dig.
