I really hate not posting things, so I posted this??? Anwyays, this comic will be printed in As You Were #3 curated by Mitch Clem! You’d better check it out because it’s awesome! You can find a recent kind of rudimentary page for As You Were here so yeah check it out! I’ll make a post when this issue comes out as well. But these are great and have lots of cool folks involved!
a few things I’ve been doing
I decided to take the time to draw something to celebrate SNOWPOCALYPSE 2014 HOTHLANTA. Luckily I was home safe with my space heater during the shenanigans.
Whoa, what? Well, between writing and stuff I recently set up a society6 store! I don’t have a lot of practice preparing things for print, but I followed all the directions so I’m pretty sure they’ll be ok? I’ll add more stuff over time.
No shirts yet (YET) but apparently you can get a promotional thing by clicking right here and if you buy something before the 12th shipping will be FREE! Wowza.
Lemme know if something looks all messed up.

I was mentioned! I was mentioned aaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
(thank you Simon)
Some early doodles of Douglas and Kyle. I later decided to probably not make Douglas a smoker, or at least the type who only constantly bugs other people for cigarettes while he’s drinking.
I enjoy drawing smokers, in case ya can’t tell.
I meant to post this a while ago! Barely finished it in time for a show.

haha oops i don’t know how tumblr works
Reblogging this from painting tumblr to demonstrate that I’m still alive and doing things! Stuff got weird and busy and right now I’m working on some minicomic things. Hopefully I’ll have a comic update here soonish!
Art shows are terrifying, btw. But it went pretty well I guess!
I had to do some correction because my camera is not very good but man I kind of fucked that up OH WELL you get the gist. Yikes one of Clem’s hands looks way more yellow than it really is aaaaaaaaaaa ok I’ll buy a good camera someday when I have money
inspired by actual events
Whoops, I meant to answer a question publicly about the supplies I use because quite a few people have asked! Last text post I promise.
I’ve done all of my comics so far on 7x10” pieces of bristol with a 6x9” live area. I mostly use various sizes of black Pitt pens for my lines, though sometimes I like ink and nibs. For filling in my blacks I use a Pentel pocket brush or Speedball black india ink and brushes. I use a Winsor & Newton watercolor field kit for coloring, though for more complicated drawings I’ll use tubes of Winsor & Newton and Grumbacher watercolors and maybe some gouache.
I also use white ink to correct mistakes or for sharp highlights. I use white gouache (sometimes mixed with a bit of yellowish color) for softer highlights. My comics have been colored pretty lazily so far so I haven’t really done any of that fancy stuff in them. As I get faster at drawing hopefully the quality will increase!
sorry there’s no joke this time but don’t worry we will be resuming your regularly scheduled jokes!
