After many near starts spanning at least two years, I finally started working on the FRIK anthology book! This anthology will include all four volumes and will roughly be 106 pages long and perfect bound. (glued not stapled) Remember that volume four was never printed, so this will be the first time that the ending of this saga will be available to people buying this comic!
Up till this point, I was printing each volume individually with tons of bonus content. A couple of years ago it became obvious that I should just combine them into one book as it would help me in terms of (continue reading…)
As the year draws to a close and I reflect back on everything I’ve done this year, I realize I’m exhausted, lol. Not only have my ART CLASSES more or less taken off where it’s become a semi-part time job (which includes homeschool, after school and Girl Scout badges), but I’ve also cranked out two issues of my newest comic, THE NORMLINGS, reformatted HOLES IN IT to be a vertical comic, and slowly worked on the FRIK Anthology book. (sorry for that one, it’s taking longer than I want.)
This month marks my one year anniversary teaching 8-12 year old kids on how to make their own comics. Besides the KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP that started it all, I also now teach a HOW TO DRAW MONSTERS class, After School classes, Homeschool classes, and I help Girl Scouts earn their “Drawing” and “Comic Artist” badges. I have a lot of plates spinning right now and I hope to get more traction with the coming year! I’ve managed to turn this into a semi-part time job, but I can always do more and WANT to do more!
In my previous Artwork Related post, I went over all the current art projects that have taken up my time lately, but this time around I wanted to focus on the art classes that I teach. If you know anyone who may benefit from any of these classes, please click on the sharing buttons at the bottom of this page! Thanks!
KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP
I need to get back in gear and hold more of these classes. I also need to get the ADVANCED KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP ready to go, which is something that was put aside due to everything else. Sorry about that parents of kids who’ve already taken this! Join my NEWSLETTER and you will be first to hear about when the class will take place!
Hey everyone, it’s been almost two months since my last post, and I wanted to give an update on what’s been going on with my art and classes during that time. I have a lot of plates spinning in the air right now! This is a two part post, the first part will be about my art.
THE NORMLINGS – ISSUE 2
The vast majority of my time these past two months has been taken up working on issue 2 of THE NORMLINGS, and I’m happy to say it is now finished and ready for the printer! I don’t know when it will ready to sell as I have to do the next thing first…
