CROSSHATCHING HECK YEAH

This is the first half of a short story I’ve been working on between other projects for a while now.  This monstrosity has taken quite a bit of time because of the crosshatching, but I really want to finish it once I’m done with my current freelance project.  Just thought I’d share in the meantime :D

I made a thing for a logo contest and I hope she likes it ahhhhhhhhh

Found some awesome art out in the wild today!  The graffiti artists around here are stepping up their game lately.  The traincars have never looked better :)

Here it is- the first three pages of my new comic, A Can of Nothing!  If you want to know what happens next, I’ll be printing and assembling books this week.  Copies will be available for sale at this year’s Springcon, where I’ll be tabling once again with the lovely Leigh Luna.  I’m also working on setting up a web store, so I’ll have some available for the non-Minnesotans soon too!  

VICTORY!

I know it’s been a bit quiet on my little corner of the interwebs lately, but that’s because I was working on this- my senior project for college.  And guess what?  IT’S FINALLY DONE.  YAAAAAAAAAAY!  I’ve just finished cleaning up the pages and they’re all ready to be scanned, printed and turned into a complete 16 page minicomic.  

I’m so excited to share this with everyone, and I’ll have more to show of it very soon!  

It’s been long enough since I sent out contest winner Amanda’s prize package that she should have received it by now, so I won’t be spoiling the surprise by posting the doodle she requested.  Corgi in rainboots.  Heck yeah.

Here is a quick look at my next big project that will be debuting at TCAF this year!

Engaging with the Disnified concept of the Fairy Tale Princess, one who waits and is, in turn, rewarded for her passivity, the narrative’s primary purpose is to show female agency in a fun and whimsical tale where a young girl takes a cross-country journey to find the mythical Library of Congress. “The Little Girl in Blue” is 16 page self-contained graphite and watercolor comic, the primary goal of which is to offer an alternative from the Disney fairy tale heroine, give readers an active, resourceful, girl who young girls can admire.

Hope y’all like it!

So Mandie is being friggin’ awesome right now and you should get hype about this.  Just sayin’.

Those freaking watercolors Mandie you crazy woman AAAAHHHHHHHH
