So… my new concept is to basically take the hulky men that Jack Kirby used to draw (especially Thor – ’cause he’s already wearing a helmet!) and turn them into Roller Derby Grrrrrrrls…. and, so:
One of my stories in my master’s project is going to be about
a roller derbier/derbist/derber (??) someone who plays roller derby. So I’ve had to practice drawing action shots of skater grrrls. I’m playing around with colours too, to give it an old school look, but I’m kinda failing miserably, so any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
It also means that I’ll *have* to go along to more roller derby bouts and watch the hot women, for, y’know, artistic inspiration. My life can be really difficult sometimes.
So the awesome folks at Funtime Comics, a Christchurch Comic Collective, will be releasing a special Earthquake Relief issue, with all proceeds going to the Red Cross.
They’re looking for both New Zealand and international artists to write a comic for this special issue, which will be available for the Wellington Armageddon convention.
I’ve been feeling pretty stink about what’s been happening over there, so it’s nice to feel like I can contribute somewhat. I popped in a 2-pager this morning.
So if you’re keen to put in a submission and want more details then click here.
Watching the news is pretty traumatising at the moment. I don’t really have words, so I drew a picture.
So this week I managed to cross over the 100,000 view mark! I’m sure it’s mostly me clicking around my own site, but it still is extremely awesome!
So – in celebration I’m popping up my poster version of the Gender Challenging Binary Identity as featured here!
Aaaand I’m still doing my fundraising drive, so if you want a print of this here image above, or other images or strips (including things in the gallery, or my wonderful Wolverine!) donate $10 or more and I’ll send it your way 😀
