This happened just a week ago. It was ACTUALLY from the construction site a few miles away. They blast the horn three times as a warning before using explosives. But yes, yes, of course the first thing to pop into my head would have something to do with Game of Thrones. #424 is random, if I do more than one of these you’d know just how much of a nerd I really am. Don’t want that, do we? :]
Thanks to GRRM for the sound effect. I had a heck of a time trying to find a good horn sound, and lo and behold, it was right there in the book!
Anyway, just a little warm-up comic, five minutes of silliness.
Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.
It’s been a busy year! Almost sold out of Puddles, decided to not sell the rest because they are in very poor shape. (Thanks, Moxicopy) I will be reprinting them eventually.
Lots of things going on, right now I’m working on a comic written by the awesome Tim Miner, a site for said comic should be popping up soon with some preview comics and other fun stuff. Almost done with the art, which I’m doing digitally. I’m ok with it, still not 100% comfortable with it–but I will be doing my other large comic “traditionally” as well as two other short pieces for anthologies. Anyway, here is some previews of the digital comic:
More info on that coming soon. I’m excited to be working on it, it’s a great story and Tim’s doing an awesome job.
The other comic I’m working on isn’t really started yet (work gets in the way) but in short, it’s about giant SPIDERS. I’m really excited for this one, but I keep wondering why I chose spiders…. they are very hard to draw, even harder to draw in my own style. We’ll see how that goes. I’ll have some character sketches up for that, and I will probably start drawing mid-September–as we are moving and I’ll be jobless for a while, gonna see what being a full-time comic artist is like! Also, seriously gotta work on my portfolio site. SERIOUSLY. That will start in August.
Anyway, I think that’s about it. Aside from work and moving, and the horrible heatwave we just had, not much is new. Excited for new things, looking forward to really getting some art done.
Listening to: 5 Fans Going. Nope, that’s not a band.
I’ve been on an especially huge Harry Potter kick lately. Probably started when I came back from Hogwarts while on my honeymoon and also because of starting my new job (back in November)– as I’ve taken to rereading the books during my lunch breaks. Right now I’m in the middle of book five–
Also, as a sort of practice for drawing comics–I’ve been picking random scenes from book five to draw, so here we have the end of page 499 into 500. Like I said, random scenes.
At any rate, I’ll be able to finish the entire series before the conclusion of the second part of the seventh movie.
Ginny and Harry–hmm. Well, I will say that I do enjoy Ginny much more in the books than in the movies–the movies don’t really give her much of a personality.
I never really did get to post pictures from the honeymoon, of Hogwarts, so I guess now is a good a time as any:
Standing with our house flags. Ha!
Anyway, some comic updates–I finished Puddles, I just have to draw the cover and little inserts–and it will be for sale at MoCCA and probably earlier online (just need to figure out how I’m going to do that). Just finished a comic for charity, and I will continue to do more comics as Paul and I are working on something together also. And who knows, maybe I’ll do more random Harry Potter scenes in comic form. Thanks for looking!
Watching- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince–(I know, I know!)
