Thanks Y’all!

Filed under: Admin — Tags: , — William Cardini @ 10:34 pm

Wow, I’m so happy that the Sparkplug Books Kickstarter was funded with a little extra to pay the videographer and t-shirt designer and get Yumi Sakugawa’s mini printed. Thanks so much for all your support!!! We couldn’t have done it without y’all’s likes, shares, faves, boops, retweets, and most of all, pledges.

I’m getting emotional preparing Vortex for the printer. I’ve been tinkering with it off and on since June 2011. It feels bittersweet to close the files for the final time and move the project to my archive folder…

Drawing comics in my studio is such a solitary activity, I can forget that there are so many of y’all out there reading and enjoying <3<3<3 Your support means so much to me, thanks again!

The Hiizzztory of the Miizzzard Part 8: The Miizzzard of the Year One Million ATTACKS the Floating Crystal Witch

Filed under: Print Comics — Tags: — William Cardini @ 9:14 am

2 days left in the Sparkplug Books Kickstarter campaign to publish my graphic novel Vortex and Elijah Brubaker’s Reich #12!

I finished this six-page comic exactly two years ago. Josh Burggraf published it in his astro-sf anthology comic Future Shock #3. I was experimenting with the coloring, trying to the style of my comics closer to my acrylic paintings. I also was trying out a genderbent character design for the Miizzzard, who shifts shape and gender throughout millennia.
