I need some #PanelRoulette topics for ComfyCon! David Willis, Angela Melick and I are doing the same online hangout/panel we did last year for, where we take your suggestions for made up panel titles/topics and do a bunch of no-preparation 5 min panels, then do a group draw jam where we ALSO draw your suggestions.
Feel free to post your panel title or drawing ideas on twitter or Facebook using the hashtag #PanelRoulette
We’re doing panel roulette again this year for ComfyCon! I’ll be there and we need topics :)
This was for a school assignment. I’m not sure my descriptions do these artists justice. I am inspired & amazed by their work every day. It was also difficult to narrow my list down to just 11 individuals because there are SO many good comics being made right now.
In turn, I would love to know which artists inspire you.
Excellent list. There are so many great cartoonists working today and I heartily endorse this list if you’re looking for new comics. Check out Kathleen’s comics, too, this is just a taste of her really unique style that I’ve really been enjoying lately!
This is nanowrimo.org, believe it or not! This is my first year doing it and I think the official site is pretty well put together. You have to manually enter your total wordcount, which is easy to do from the program I am writing in (markdownpad)
It’s finally here! My graphic novel A Mad Tea-Party, having been around the block on Kickstarter, is now available for anyone to buy, either in print for $12 plus shipping or as a $5 ebook. Check out my newly rebuilt shop for this and other cool things.
Preview of my piece for Cloudscape’s next anthology, Mega Fauna. It’s a 7-page story called “Shared Habitat”, and it’s about two kids exploring a world that humans can’t survive without our genetically-modified creatures.
Words and lines by me, amazing colours by Jak. :)))
Stoked I was able to turn being royally screwed on a deadline into an opportunity to collaborate with Jak. She was the one who introduced me to manga in high school and we spent many late nights power-leveling our comicking skills together. It’s amazing that we both managed to stick with comics and are now both making our mark on the industry.
It was a bit of a mad sprint getting this done so thank you so much to Jak for colouring all those damn frogs. She did the art for another piece in Mega Fauna as well (written by Shannon Campbell), and I wrote another piece about a Thai monk (with art by Everett Patterson.) Mega Fauna is an all-ages book about the shared lives of people and animals and it’s coming soon!
Re-blurb for the day train, and a reminder that Sponsors can read this *right now* :)
I’ve shared a bit of my main story in Mega Fauna, but here’s a preview of the other story. It’s called Temple Dog and it’s excellently drawn by Everett Patterson.
The Kickstarter for the book has only a few hours left. We made our goal but you can help Everett and the other artists get paid for their contribution. Thanks for your support everyone!
Angela Melick, author of Wasted Talent (http://www.wastedtalent.ca/) drew an awesome story for Megafauna about a future with genetically altered ecosystems. It takes on more than one viewpoint and is definitely worth a read!
Mega Fauna is sooooo close to funding! It’s a full-colour indie anthology with all-ages stories.
