Quelques planches de Bd que j’ai dessiné il y a maintenant pile-poil un an. Elles moisissaient dans mes dossiers d’ordinateur alors je me décide à les dépoussiérer et les montrer enfin. Il s’agissait d’une Bd-dont-vous-êtes-le-héros à choix multiples (un peu plus typé jeunesse que ce que j’ai l’habitude de faire), avec une évolution des persos et une histoire qui ne dévoilait tous ses secrets qu’après avoir arpenté chaque ramifications. Par manque de temps (et de retours) j’ai un peu laissé tomber, et maintenant que j’ai trop de projets sur le feu je ne pense pas le reprendre avant un bon bout de temps. Donc avant d’en avoir trop honte et puisque j’ai envie de m’affranchir un peu de ce genre de dessins ces temps-ci, je les affiche ici : vestiges manifestes de mon addiction aux jeux de rôle et aux dégradés Photoshop.
These are some pages of a comic-book ( a Choose Your Own Adventure-like) I made last year… Unfortunately french publishers were not okay to give it a shot, and I gave up. Thanks to a short talk with Josh Tierney yesterday I looked back in my old files and found the pages…
A drawing running in today’s edition of The Washington Post, highlighting this weekend’s Awesome Con. The brief mentioned that this year’s Awesome Con was expected to break the Guinness World Record for most superhero cosplayers in one convention.
I had a lot of fun figuring out which superheroes to put in, and how to do it. Thanks to AD Allie Ghaman.
My long road to get a digital drawing system set up has finally come to some kind of fruition … My first (mostly) complete digital comics page » finished traditional inks. The scan is not cleaned up or the panel borders drawn in (I have always done digital panel borders because I can’t ink a straight line, even with a ruler) because I scanned it at the wrong size for print, so I have to redo it anyway.
Tools involved with this: Cintiq, Manga Studio 5, Epson Artisan 1430, Raphael Klonsky watercolour brush, size 1. And many, many tears. But I think I’m starting to get the hang of this.
Please please let there be an orchid mantis fairy/bug evolution for scyther!!
I made my own version but I’m really hoping for this to happen! Or at least a fairy/bug type. My guy needs a name though! Something that starts with “Sc” and ends in “r”. If anyone has any good ideas, lemme know. The best I have is Scapier, some kind of edit or rapier or something. I’d love to name it after a neat magical weapon though but I don’t know much about that!
EDIT Someone suggested Scalibur (like Excalibur) and I think that’s what I’ll go with! Silent “c” though! (maybe silent “c”? idk really)
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
You guys have all heard of Lumberjanes by now, right?
I’m happy to say that my exclusive cover for Lumberjanes #1 is for sale at Challengers Comics in Chicago (my hometown!) coinciding with Noelle's signing there this past weekend. I think the whole Lumberjanes crew is ace and I'm excited to have contributed to such a girl-positive comics series, drawn and written by awesome ladies!
I’ve been watching a lot of River Monsters and I really liked the idea of setting the Lumberjanes off on a canoeing adventure with an unexpected catch. I’ve since been informed that the canoe I drew totally looks like a vagina. It was unintentional, but I’m more than ok with that! By ladies for ladies, amirite??
