I am a freelance graphic designer, working on doing more illustration work. Much of the art posted here is from projects I'm working on right now... |
I'm sick and tired of seeing friendly trainable dragons in cartoons and movies, (they are almost as bad a as broody angsty vampires). So i'm writing and illustrating a field-guide for dragonslayers, full of cartoons, comics, recipes and blueprints for ridiculous contraptions. I'm going to self-publish the book through my company as a promotional portfolio piece for publishing, book design and illustration.
And I'd like to publish an anthology featuring work by myself and other artists, in honor of the many people in the comics industry that have struggled for rights and have been used horribly by the big publishers. Proceeds will hopefully go to a charity that will benefit golden age artists and writers. I'm nearly done with the storyboards for my main contribution, and I'll post some more info soon.
On the back burner until the above stuff is more done...
For a long time now I've been developing a comic strip. I'm a huge fan of the old adventure comics in the Sunday paper. I've been developing an epic, retro, sci-fi comic-strip homage, featuring the adventures of our stoic anthropomorphized animal heroes, Hamm*Starr and his fellow deep-space castaways! I've been mostly working on character designs, plot outlines etc, but I'd like to start working on the strip soon, maybe on a monthly or even weekly schedule, while working on other projects.
I just finished an outline of script for a full-length graphic novel, a hard boiled western horror comic, full of history, horror, and gunfights! I'll be starting work on the art as soon as some of the above work gets is done.
My day job...
