Mini-Comics Day Recap

Filed under: Event Recap — Tags: , , — William Cardini @ 8:50 pm

Mini-Comics Day at Dragon’s Lair was pretty good. Rather than work on a new mini, I just worked on Math Fiction Squared. I drew for four hours and got about halfway done with three pages. I’m almost done.

Here’s a preview shot I posted on my flickr last week:

This image hasn’t had the red/blue anaglyph 3d effect applied to it yet (obviously). It’s also been rotated and flipped. I’m having a lot of fun experimenting with different custom patterns for this project. I want to go back and add the patterns to all my old comics, but although that probably won’t happen I’m definitely going to start using them more going forward.

Secret Prison #4 at MoCCA 2011

Filed under: Events — Tags: , , — William Cardini @ 7:20 am

Mini-Comics Day is not the only thing happening this upcoming weekend – it’s also MoCCA 2011 in NYC. Although I was able to attend in 2008, 2009, and 2010, I won’t be there this year :’,’,’,’,'( (Although I can’t really be all that sad, because Glade and I’s wedding and subsequent honeymoon is the reason why.) However, one of my comics will be in attendance. Thanks to everyone’s support of Secret Prison in 2011 on Kickstarter, Pat Aulisio will have fresh, free copies of #4 at Table L5, which he’s sharing with Mike Turzanski and Tom Smo.

Here’s a preview of my comic for Secret Prison #4:

Mini-Comics Day at Dragon’s Lair this Saturday

Filed under: Events — Tags: , — William Cardini @ 7:08 am

Hey y’all, this Saturday, April 9th, is Mini-Comics Day! It’s like 24-Hour Comic Book Day, but less grueling, because you only have to commit to finish a minicomic, with no size or length restrictions.

Are the cartoonists participating in mini-comics day the mouse, the mousetrap, or the cheese?

Here in Austin, Dragon’s Lair (6111 Burnet Rd) is hosting a Mini-Comics Day event from 10am to midnight. Come by, I’ll be there drawing – and, if you’re allergic to cats like I am, be sure to take some loratadine before you walk in the door, cuz they have a couple feline residents. I hope to see some of y’all there.

Although technically you’re supposed to write and draw the whole thing in one day, I’ve already started sketching and brainstorming. Here are my sketches:

Here’s a preliminary sketch of The Two Heads of Murg Kraw. Sensitive plot planning notes have been redacted.

I feel like pirate yeti is pretty self explanatory, but to be specific, this is a SPACE pirate yeti (or pirate space yeti? yeti pirate space?). I switched pencils in the middle, so some lines are way thicker than other.

Math Fiction Squared Sketches

Filed under: Print Comics — Tags: , , — William Cardini @ 7:36 am

Hey d00dz, right now I’m working on a seven-page Miizzzard comic for Math Fiction Squared, the sequel to the 3D comic that I was in last year. Like the first one, Math Fiction Squared is edited by Pat Aulisio and will have digitally printed blue/red anaglyph 3D interior pages and a screenprinted cover. However, it’ll be a little smaller: 8.5″ square. I’m really stoked about it!

Here are some sketches:

Look for it in May. I’ll let y’all know when it’s out.
