im more sucessful when I use pencils to begin with and then scan in the art. As you can see my pencils are all over the place.
this is the cover to a four page mini comic that I wrote and drew that I am going to be releasing very soon. its apart of a larger narrative thats going to be broken up in parts.
Art school and people going to them is a funny concept. I don’t consider animation to be art school, it’s more of a trade, but going to a school to learn how to paint and draw and design seems useless to me. There’s nothing that those teachers are gonna teach you that you can’t learn by your self.
Or maybe I’m just bitter cause I see what art school does to people.
I still kind of think this is a joke.
Hey Tumblr! I will be looking around Tumblr to find the freshest, coolest stuff out there for this year’s Best American Comics anthology! Reblog this post so I can know to check out your work! Also, get ready for the reblog contest of the year! One randomly selected user who reblogs this will GET THEIR ACTUAL WORK SHOWN IN THE BOOK!!!! THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!!!!!
My new comic, Smoo #6 is available now to purchase in my shop.
It is a collection of quiet stories about listening to Hüsker Dü then walking around, moving house, a holiday in France, swimming at night (again) and more besides. I don’t think anyone has reviewed it yet, but folk who got a copy via pre-order have said some nice things about it. Why not find out for yourself?
We also had a great launch party at Desert Island in Brooklyn last week, but more about that another day.
A note on prices: you may have noticed a price increase in my shop. The zines are the same price, but sadly I’m having to start charging for P&P. I used to offer free P&P on UK orders, and subsidised P&P on overseas orders, but that has been proving a little unsustainable since postage prices went up this April. It pains me to do it, but ‘tis the way the wind is blowing. For readers in the US, however, you can get Smoo 5 (and shortly Smoos 4 and 6) from John P’s Spit and a Half Distro which might work out more cost-effective. Thanks for your understanding!
