THIS IS FOR JESSE! It’s a celebration of the great canines of DC. Also a celebration of Jimmy Olsen comics. How great were those? Pretty darn great.
I was going to make it a cover with an unironic use of word balloons as well, but I’m lazy. Unironic word balloon comic covers are also great.
The lack of updates on my tumblr is due (partly) to this comic right here for the next Real Science Adventures. I just finished all of the inks and it’s time to move on to color. Trying to get a bunch of comics work done around the holidays is just murder. Let me tell you.
Anyhoo, I got the okay from Mr Brian Clevinger to show a page, so here it is! Page one! Nikola Tesla being his usual handsome self. I actually had to go back in and dehandsome him in several pages. Too many of my personal feelings on the subject crept in during the drawing process.
This was my second day of “don’t sweat it and draw things for fun so that you can get back to drawing things you need to draw” therapy. Tomorrow I get back to work! (After I go to the art store, bank, and glasses place.)
I saw some photos of the red phone box graveyard and thought they were pretty cool and have been talking to James Tynion about Junji Ito comics so I guess this came from that. I think I’m back on track now. Maybe I’ll even do some real work before I go to bed.
“UM. EXCUSE ME, BUT THIS IS A MARIS WICKS ORIGINAL.” I also brought with me an original Sam Bosma. I’m excited to get these back.
Seriously. This needs to stop. Also, if you want a girl in your comic to be a “dateless wonder” don’t make her a size zero with giant boobs and a miniskirt. Just a suggestion.
fun Erica fact: I don’t have neon pink hair to keep people from looking at me.
Those of you who were in a certain class with me during second semester senior year, yes, that is whasserface from that terrible first script.
This is a cover I had been working on for a pitch. We’ve got this, an overview and 9 pages of comic and we’ll be shopping it around. Maybe I’ll come bug some of you guys at NYCC.
We’re going to continue to work on it in our free time so even if it doesn’t get picked up we’ll still have our graphic novel. But, come on. Who doesn’t like time travel and archaeology?
On the way to SPX my chocolate bar got melted by my power brick. It was in the same pouch as my sketchbook and 100 dollars in singles for change at the show.
A small preview of a comic I’ve been working on- and yes- to all you egyptologists out there, that is a reconstruction of the great temple at Karnak. Woooo
Every time I leave an air conditioned room this summer I die a little.
