Colorist needed to finish "The Sixth" - Paid gig!
I need someone to finish the colors on the last eleven pages of The Sixth.  I have $100.00 left in the coloring budget for anyone interested in doing it.  I can probably stretch that figure out a bit more, but not by much.  Please contact me if you're interested.  I need this done no later than the first week of January.

Keep it indie.

What would you recommend? I want to post work where more people will see it.

Graphic Novel - Testing idea

An idea that came up a week ago was changing how I'll be doing two graphic novels for my Masters in Fine Art. One graphic novel is autobiographical and includes five trips I've taken in my life (showing how things have changed in my life over a period of time). The other is an examination of the process of Gender Transition and the issues that surround it, done in a detached and semi academic manor (with a style inspired by the Scott McCloud graphic novels on comic).

At the moment the scheme has been: script them, then draw them, and present the final result in printed form at the end of studies (along with my research paper and exhibition based on the work).

The revised idea is: script them; draw them; upload them as instalments in webcomic format, get reader feedback (and make revisions if need be); and then present the final webcomic version instead of the printed version (along with my research paper and exhibition based on the work).

I rather like the idea of making a webcomic version first, because I already have production skills in that area, and it would integrate it into what I do anyway. Also, it would be something I could show people as a work in progress. Now I fully intend to publish both graphic novels in paper version after the masters is completed (in fact the whole point of the Masters is to get them done). But this brings up issues surrounding them being presented as web comics in the first place. The firs of which is, making sure that one format does not detract from the other, and that I'm not doubling up on work. One solution I think is is produce each webcomic page as a 1/2 landscape part of a full portrait print page:

This is a scheme similar to that used in Asterix and Tin Tin albums, where the originals appeared as 1/2 pages in magazine before being collected in albums. Of course that will only work with panel grids that are even numbered horizontally. Otherwise I may as well just do a full print page per web page. Cutting and pasting two pages into one is a process I'm doing with webcomics that first appeared in Stuff Happens, and are now being reprinted in Seconds. It's very easy to do.

The original artwork is going to be hand drawn in black and white mostly, then converted to vector in Illustrator and probably coloured there. I've been exploring the techniques to do this most of this year. My last artwork, Cutting Edge, was done this way. The net advantage of doing that is better colour control for printing, and rescaling the artwork.

The other issue is access. The biographical work is fairly person and that won't need too much feedback. However the examination of gender transition needs to be accurate, at least as far as our current understanding goes. Some of that will need to be medical, political, academic, and practical. It would work better if I had an audience that could give me feedback as I go, and help correct blunders and gaffs that may come about. I'd want constructive feedback rather than potential flame wars. I'd also rather not have the whole thing open unrestricted to the public until it was properly published. The issue then becomes where to host the webcomic version, so that I can have those controls in place?

Galactrix #1 at press and convention news
The Galactrix #1 is currently at the printer and should be ready for FetishCon. It's July 28-31st in Tampa, Florida. I'll be premiering the book there with the book's model - Akira Lane.

I've purchased my airfare to Tampa for the show, so everything's a go. I'll be sharing a booth with April Hunter there. It will be the first time April and I have attended the show and we have no idea what to expect. I've been told I might not sell a lot of books, but I'll come away with tons of new connections and possibly new models for whom I can write comic books. I may take part in some photo shoots there and I'm going to try to wiggle my way into a Q&A session with erotica writers. Wish me luck. Isobel Wren, the model for Tentacle Love, will also be there.

I'm also confirmed for Flashback Weekend August 12-14th in Chicago. There's a good chance April will be there, and I know that Michelle Shields, the model for Shadow Woman, will be there. I hope to have Shadow Woman #1 ready for the show. It's the same weekend as Wizard Chicago, but Flashback Weekend is a much better show. It's better organized, cheaper, and the general vibe there is a lot more fun. If you must attend Wizard Chicago, please come across the street to the Crowne Plaza hotel and see what a fun show is.

I also plan on attending GlamourCon in Chicago August 8th. My friend Taylor Wane is going to be there so I plan on going there to catch up with her.

I've updated the Pickle Press website for this month. If you're an artist and looking for work, check out the "Titles" page and look for upcoming projects that need pencils and inks.

Stay tuned for more. Thanks for supporting indie comics

First look at the Galactrix cover
Here's the first look at the cover for The Galactrix #1 starring Akira Lane. The artwork is by the lightning-quick Celestin and he's done a bang-up job. The interiors (which are black and white) look just as good. I should have this book ready for FetishCon, at which Akira is a guest of honor. You can buy it there first and get it signed by both of us (and Myla the service droid, too!).

Go indie comics!

Coming up in June...
Each year I am keen on both of these events. The following is copied from the relevant websites, and is open to anyone regardless of geographical location.


Drawing Day - June 4, 2011
One day a year, the world stops to remember that joy we had when we first picked up a pencil and created our first piece of art - that's what Drawing Day is all about. The goal for Drawing Day is simple - to create enough drawings to make some noise worldwide for the sake of art. 2008 was the first year of this initiative. Our goal is definitely a long-shot, but we continue to aim for 1 million drawings worldwide. We have no precise measure to know if we reach this goal. If we come close we will all definitely know. Even if we reach 10% of our goal in the first year of this initiative, it will be a great achievement but we will continue aiming for the magic million. Simply draw, then submit drawings to our website or any of our participating websites.


Comikazi Challenge 2011 - weekend of 11th June (a long weekend in most of Australia)
The Challenge is to create a comic in 24 hours, in whatever medium you're comfortable in. Use ink, computer graphics, paint, magazine photos, crayons; use paper, bristol board, wacom tablets - it doesn't matter. Every year we have around 60-80 participants and some absolutely amazing stories keep coming out of the challenge. No. Seriously. Have a look for yourself! The site hosting the challenge (Pulp Faction) takes in anywhere from 170,000 to 200,000 page hits during the challenge period every year (sponsors, that means your banners were viewed approximately 22,000+ times during a normal event)!

From the storybook I am illustrating, being offered as a high resolution PDF download for $1 on our Kickstarter

Get a $2 sheet of fine art paper from your local craft store, and this print will look its very best - a mere $3 in total investment.

The Invention of Soccer

Comments and criticisms are very welcome. As this is more or less a technical exercise in depicting motion I am looking for ways to make the action more fluid and more clear.
