Goblin Sketch

Filed under: Sketchbook Pages — Tags: , — William Cardini @ 4:24 pm

Happy Friday! Here’s a recent sketch I did:

A goblin mount, retroactively done for Goblin Week. This photo is at an angle so it makes me look like I’m better at drawing foreshortening than I actually am.

I tried out a different type of sketchbook last year, an A5-sized Fabriano graph paper sketchbook, and I didn’t enjoy drawing in it. I don’t like to waste blank paper but I had to give up using it and go back to my usual brand, a letter-sized Reflexions hardbound sketchbook with thick, creamy paper. I’ve been doodling a lot more in 2015, it’s so fun! Regularly doodling makes me feel so much more inspired. It’s surprising to me how important physical materials are to my process when everything ends up digital anyway.

Skew Part 2 Ending Soon; Part 3 Starts in a Few Months

Filed under: Web Comics — Tags: , — William Cardini @ 10:26 am

More Skew pages were posted yesterday. Part 2 is almost done – I’ll finish it up in three to four more updates.

Skew Page 95

After that, it’ll be a few months before Skew Part 3 begins. I’ve already got it plotted in my head but I need to finish up the Kickstarter rewards and take care of some other projects before I get back into a weekly Skew schedule.
P.S. Vortex is now available in the Birdcage Bottom Books online shop.

Vortex Updates and Press

Filed under: Press — Tags: — William Cardini @ 9:53 am

Releasing the Vortex book was my second biggest accomplishment of 2014. (The biggest was getting my daughter to sleep in her crib. Neither would have been possible without the help of my wife.) Thanks again to everyone who supported the Sparkplug Books Kickstarter! Virginia is sending out your copies of Vortex and I’m working on the 3d print and original art rewards. If you missed out on the Kickstarter but would still like a copy, it’s for sale in the Sparkplug web store and in Austin at Farewell Books and Austin Books. I’ll sell copies on this site once I finish my part of the Kickstarter rewards.

Here’s some press that Vortex got in the tail end of 2014:

If you’ve read Vortex, please consider rating or reviewing it on Goodreads.
