ECB Ends With A BangAs most of you know I started my comic Emerald City Blues at a 24 hour comic challenge event a couple years back. This weekend I'm going to attempt to finish it at another! I'll be at The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach this Saturday 10/4 from 4pm till issue 4 is done (or I fall down from exhaustion). If you've ever wanted to be part of making a comic book come on down and help me fill in the blacks, clean up pages and maybe ink some backgrounds. I'll have some ECB prints with me as well.

Back from Houston Finishing up ECB 4Spent last weekend in Houston for the Amazing Comic Con show. I had a fantastic time! I met lots of people who follow my work and introduced it to many others.
Finally focusing on finishing Issue #4 of ECB Emerald City Blues. Beginning to think it may take a 5th issue to wrap it up. It's taken forever to finish it mostly because I keep thinking up new ideas that I want to add to it. I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has read and supported it by buying issues of it. ECB had some to represent a transitional time in my creative development and I have enjoyed sharing it with everyone one Deviant Art.
I'm hoping to get it done by this year's Long Beach Comic Con.

Vegas BabyThis weekend I'll be at Las Vegas Comic Con. http://www.amazinglasvegascomiccon.com/
I'll be at table T41. I'll be doing sketches, signing and I'll have copies of Me2!
Free Comic Book DayHad a great time celebrating Free Comic Book Day at Phat Collectibles in Huntington Beach. I went HAM and drew free sketches from 10-5:00. Everybody was super patient and had great energy. Thanks to everyone who picked up copies of Me2 at the event. Shout out to the great staff at Phat Collectibles and my fellow creators who brought their talent to the event. Good times.
Wonder Con Me2 Pre OrdersHad a very successful Wonder Con this past weekend. I did a bunch of commissions and sketch covers as well as debuting the first issue of Me2. Fantastic response to Me2 and I sold out of the first issue of ECB again. So much support for indie comics at conventions. It sometimes feels like there are two comic industries. The comic book store reality and the comic convention reality. As much as I love comic stores it's difficult to get new product into them with the current business model. It's been discussed again and again that comic stores don't attract younger or female readers. It's the exact opposite at comic conventions. This more diversified audience wants more variety in their content and it shows in what they support at the shows.
I have received my first batch of Me2 books and I am filling pre orders today. If you want to get your copy in the first wave and support indie creators like myself there is still time to order. Check the link below.

Thor Artist Edition Read through the IDW Thor artist edition. Blown away by how Walt Simonson was able to generate so many interesting panels/consistent/quality art and writing on a monthly book. I also noticed how comic art was a bit more abstract during this era. Cars were generic and backgrounds were left up to the readers imagination. The art drew the reader in by engaging them to complete the image in their mind. I have no doubt that this why so many of the stories from this era took on such powerful personal meaning to those who read them.
The more cinematic styling/ movie storyboard style of layouts of modern comics pushes the readers away from the visuals as if they are viewing the action from outside through a window. The constant repetition of same sized panels is an icon in itself. Causing the reader to give every piece of visual information the same weight from a story perspective. I believe it has a deadening effect on the story. Everything is at the same volume.
I would like to se

I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.
I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.
I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking
Updates as of October2009: Missing Halloween's story was created. Discontinued.
2010: Attempted to rework in 3D. Failed. Discontinued.
2013: Revived and started the animation production. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2014: Resumed and held a contest. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2015: Resumed. Missing Halloween didn't miss Halloween!
For the past month, me and Negyek were hard at work, day and night, to finish Missing Halloween. Later on, Procrastacat and VenBright were hired to give various voices for the ending scene. All of these are, of course, paid jobs, thanks to my Patreon supporters.
By November 29, the animation is officially done. All 8+ minutes of it.

The 'FNAF Sister Location' Anti-Hate RantOK, so everyone should have seen Scott's new teaser by now.
I was not going to write about this originally (so forgive me for rushing this journal), since I figured that literally everyone knows about the news by now, but the way people are announcing it and reacting to it disturbs me. I thought we were better than this, but I guess not.
Literally everywhere I go today, everyone I've seen is spamming memes like and saying that Scott is milking the series and beating a dead horse. Even people who have "left" the FNAF fandom and have decided to pop back in just to put in their discouraging, even hating, opinions. It's so bad, that I feel people are hating JUST because it has become cool to hate, as some kind of herd mentality.
Well guess what? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks! Scott is clearly going to do what Scott is going to do! The amount of hate th

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way,
