zvye asked:

I've looked at your blog for a few minutes and I'm letting you know right now that you're an awesome dude and you also gave me a burst of inspiration. I've been drawing since before i could write actual sentences and I've been trying to make comics since the 6th grade but I always have trouble coming up with good story lines. Anyway, have a good day!

Thank you very much. Creativity in writing and drawing is all learned like muscle memory. The more you flex the muscle the more you’re able to do with it. I always think back to something that Stan Sakai said, which was that for every story he completed he came up with two more. At this point I’ve discovered a lot of how I work and come up with ideas, and I’ve drawn enough comics that conveying them is a pretty seamless process. I always need to work myself up to do work (instead of not work) and I grow the most when I challenge myself and discover a better way for scenes to happen. The other night I kicked myself when I realized how to make a story work better that I’d completed 5 years ago. Oh well, that’s how things go sometime. Always be making things.

Part 2 of Single Dragon. I’m really happy with the dorky knight speech.

Peradventure = King James for ‘perhaps’

A couple of the commissions that I did for the Kickstarter. I get the slightest feeling that I put too much work into these, but I couldn’t be satisfied with anything less.

For 24 hour comic day I got 8 pages done for a short comic. Should be another 16 pages, I plan on getting done by the end of the month. Even though I’m not getting it done in 24 hours each page will still only take 1 hour to do.

For a crappy temp job I once had.

The recent Spider-Woman kerfuffle got me thinking about what’s important in comics, and it’s not anatomy. Lars Brown represents the things that make comics great. He’s a history teacher who makes comics for the sheer love of it. Sketchy doodly fun. He makes the extraordinary seem every day and the every day seem magical: that’s what good fantasy literature does.He’s no master of anatomy or perspective or rendering but he tells a story clearly and dramatically. I can’t get enough of his work.I’m proud to call risk takers like him my colleagues.

I am so humbled by the kind words, thank you Gene!
