I know you’ve all been asking, “how can I look casual, yet knowledgeable of the independent arts?” Well, the answer is here:
Supplies are limited, as fashion-conscious robots keep looting my studio. So, get ’em while you can…
Issue #3 is just about ready for mass consumption. In this chapter, FR comes face-to-face with the reality of his identity, and both he and Reggie have to make sense of the robot’s truth of existence. What will Clarabelle do? Can they all escape becoming casualties of war?!
I collaborated with the mega-talented Cody Hagman on this one. I did the line work and Cody brought life to the drawing with awesome, digital colors.
It’s so damn easy to tell when I’m not paying attention at work. I get very focused on my distractions and totally tune out coworkers and clients to the point of ridiculousness. No where is this more true than in staff meetings. With no computer or portable device to play with, I start doodling on any paper I can reach. I’m sure everyone remembers this from high school, drawing in the margins of notebooks. For me, it quickly become a fascination scenario, and I become unable to notice that everyone else is watching me instead of the meeting. Oops.
Here’s one from yesterday’s meeting. That’s supposed to be some kind of mutant squirrel…
I still have my job, but just barely.
I love a good comic convention, but I sure do hate having to go back to work after a day full of traveling. Sigh…
Back to the grind it is, though. My time spent at Rose City Comic Con was worth it, because I feel rejuvenated to draw more cool stuff and post it here for you cool folks. Here’s a little sketch I did at the table on Sunday, augmented with a helmet/bubble in good ol’ Photoshop…
He started off with shorter legs, but after looking around at all the great work I was surrounded with at the convention, I decided to try and break the “proportional mold” I often fin myself stuck drawing in. So, long legs for you, fatty. You can’t tell it in this sketch, but this good-lookin’ fella is a total jerk. He would steal your keys just for a laugh.
My first adventure at Rose City Comic Con is a fun success. The event is great, the attendees are awesome, and you just can’t lose when spending time in Portland. It’s been wonderful getting to reunite with some friends, but I wish I had more time than the few hours outside of the con this weekend. Oh well, I’ll have to come back soon.
Are you going to be in Portland, Oregon in a few weeks? If so, you should come by my table at Rose City Comic Con and pick up the new issue of Father Robot the weekend of September 20th and 21st. I’ve got some new artwork for sale (original and prints), t-shirts, buttons, and, of course, lots of cool comics!
