All at Once

Hello. A whole lot has been going on lately. In no particular order, here are some things that are currently happening:

Danny Djeljosevic and I launched the Kickstarter for the comic we did together called BattleARC 2088, and within a week we're already so close to meeting our goal! There's a lettered preview up, and incentives include getting older comics of ours in PDF form, attomachine buttons, sketches, and script reviews! We've been quietly working on this comic since, I dunno, 2016, I think, and we're so excited to get it out into the world. Please consider throwing some money our way so that we can get it printed and released!

You'll notice in the preview, there's a character who may be super familiar if you're one of the people who picked up a copy of Burst Reach, my very first minicomic, all the way back in 2011. I'm really pleased that doofus made it into the book.

We skipped figure drawing in June due to me packing up my apartment (the house still isn't done, I just got ahead of myself) and folks being busy and out of town, but one of our models offered to host at the beginning of this month. This is the third time we've had a psuedo 4th of July themed drawing party. And we're getting together again this weekend for a private session at the new Mockingbird Music Room and Gallery, which is owned by a couple cool friends! I'm not sure when I'll be ready to host our group again, hopefully sometime next month, but I'm grateful that others have stepped up to keep our get-togethers going.

Here's a big one: I've finished and printed the first issue of a new Slimepunk comic!!
THIS is the webcomic I've been trying to work on since last summer. I still plan on it being a webcomic too. I've got a domain and a site set up, but there's still a lot to do before that's ready to launch, and I just haven't quite had the time. But I was eager to at least get this first issue out, and it'll be making its debut at Rob-Con next weekend! Here are a couple pages to get you going:
Keeping this under wraps for so long was also kind of a pain, but it should be available on ComiXology before long, too!

Oh, and just a few days after Rob-Con will be my new show at Bloom Cafe here in Bristol, called Emotive Environments. I hang my work on August 1st, and August 2nd from 7-10 will be an opening reception! I'm working on probably the final painting for the show as we speak, but here's one that's a self portrait I finished a couple weeks back:
This one is titled the Friction Between the Soul and the Outside World, which is kind of butchered from a line from my favorite movie, Stalker.

Things will hopefully slow down just a little bit after all of this, especially once the house is finished and I'm moved in. The Johnson City Zine Fest will be August 25th and I have a minicomic in mind that I'd like to do for it, but we'll see if I'll be able to.

So, um, I think that's everything for now. Gotta get back to work. Take care of yourselves!
