%%%% REBLOGGED FROM REYYY.COM &&&
Been meaning to make a multi-purpose blog post of awesome, but have been so personally busy with so many different things and and and and andSHARKNIFE DOUBLE Z IS DONE.
224 pages of beastly SHARK NINJA ACTION is ready to drop all up on y'allz. WHEN WILL IT BE OUT? I don't know for certain, but early 2012 is likely. Oni Press. w00t w00t
Went down to portland, debuted a new comic called "We Are the Broken Ones" (written by Vincent Lavious
You can read it here
SO WHAT'S NEXT? NOW THAT SHARKNIFE 2 IS DONE?
I am working on two short story comic projects at the moment.
1) "THE GOOD AND THE FOWL" - A completely random short story starring LJ (from Layered Jacket
) and another one of my MAIN CHARACTERS (as yet unnamed).
Not up to read yet, but here's a preview thingy:
2) "SPEED DIVING" - Another pretty random short story. This one will be slightly lengthier than FOWL or BROKEN ONES. This one aint up yet, either, but here's a couple sample images:
No rest for the REY. STAY TUNED DUDEZZ%%% // END REBLOG %%%
Now to more personal LJ-SPECIFIC RAMBLINGS
YES LJ STILL HAS A LEGITIMATE PURPOSE
BLEE BLAH BLEW BLEW COULDN'T DO THIS ON TWITTR OR TUMBLR LEST I LOSE FOLLOWERS!!! OH NOES!
anyway. whut? whut?
So yeah, finished SHARKNIFE DOUBLE Z. IT IS MONUMENTOUS, AINT GON LIE. sometimes i slip into the common SLUMP these days still-- but then i remember i seriously don't have to worry about this book anymore (aside from some post-production tweaks, likely) and it feel FUUUUUCKING GREAT. LIBERATING. ONE MORE YEAR OF MY 20'S TO CELEBRATE.
so far, i'm celebrating by getting right into new projects, as mentioned above.
GOOD AND THE FOWL is just a lil 5 page joke comic featuring LJ from Layered Jacket (and another fun cameo from another guy creation of mine almost forgotten). but im DOIN IT UP in the color process, so it may turn out looking way cooler than it has a right to. just finished drawing it, completely, yesterday.
SPEED DIVING i'm intentionally keeping kinda vague, coz it's more than what it seems. YOU'LL SEE
and now that GOOD/FOWL is done drawing, i'm getting into thumbing my next "serious" graphic novel. it's gonna be a 1-shot, roughly PENG sized (likely a bit larger). but it's an entirely new concept, characters, etc, than anything i've done before.
it has to do with pop stars and shit, so it's been fun digging up glitz & glamor reference.
if what i crave in my life beyond my "lust for comics" is glitz and glamor attention from attractive celebrities, I might as well make a comic featuring them, so i can manipulate them to my liking. EH? yeah. anyway, it's more than just pop stars. y'all will see.
so ya, my plan is to poop out some random short stories in POST-DUB-Z world. starting with FOWL, moving on to SPEED DIVING and then a big movement with new pop-star project. FOWL & SPEED DIVING
will be debuting on a new ONLINE COMICS SITE
that will also see the return of GINGERBOX
. all things which are very close to actual completion, and very actual ready usage for you. i'm very excited to get these things brought back. the world needs them.
it's been sunny here lately. here's a great summertime jam that my bud chad walker
TIL NEXT TIEM
