Art is in progress. Pages four and five of Obscure Tales 4 are inked and being colored.

Art is not the point of this post. Most of you, by the time you read this blog, will have seen this. Anybody remember my jetpack penguins?

Now, check out the REAL THING! (sans machine guns, evil or nazisim)

Yves Rossy just flew his jetpack across the English Channel. Holy crap!

Sorry about the lack of posts, but I've been drawing. Working on OT 4 and coming up with a four-page work for a show that my alma mater is putting on about manga/anime and works inspired by it. I can't really draw in a manga style, but I have an idea that was inspired a bit by manga. It will probably become OT5.

So, OT4 has been updated. It is still an experiment in progress. I've opted for flat colors for the interiors and shading for the exteriors. What do you think. This may have the added bonus of quicker updates, but I make no guarantees.

Listening to while posting: videos from the Periodic Table of Videos. It's SCIENCE!

comic stuff

Firstly, Obscure Tales Issue Four: The Suns of Charybdis has officially begun. It's only the title page, but page two is done and colored and three is in the works. Working with AndreZero as a writer means I should show him the pages before I finish them. These will take a bit longer due to the (over)coloring. There's also a new navigation system added. Just click on the right-side image to go to the next and the left-side image to go back. Cool, eh? Hopefully a bit more intuitive.

So, I'll add an image of the poster I'm dong for 24 Hour Comics Day this year. I drew it by hand and traced it in Illustrator. The plan is to silkscreen a number of them rather than just photocopy them. Much cooler. We're also doing t-shirts! Woo!

Other than that, I've been busy. Riding (no rain for an entire week!) and on Sunday went on a helicopter ride out of a farm down the street with a bunch of barnstorming missionaries (no sermon required). Also, Sweet Enemy participated in the South End Art Hop in Burlington. She should be posting about it and I don't want to jinx it, but I'll say that she left with $185 worth of art sold and is now in contact with a couple who saw one of her more expensive pieces there and REALLY want to buy it! Yay! Sweet Enemy!
