Item: Little bit of self promo. I gave a talk on a few of the different processes I use to a comics class taught by Kelly Tindall at synstudio recently. Showing how I go about building pages up from scrip to final art, and some thoughts about alternates to grid layouts that I like to play with. You can watch it here! Also half of it is a Q&A session, how do you get noticed [tell me if you figure it out!] how things have changed [i’m and old man] and who do you love! [notice i wore a tie?] Sigh. Need to do this more, get practice speaking publicly.
More to come, but for now, go get some late summer sun!
