Newly Burned Screens
Glade and I have an art show at Austin Books and Comics the whole month of August, where our prints will be hanging in the back issue room. I’m going to have two full-color CMYK prints and two screenprints, one that’ll be a single color, and one that’ll be two colors. I had my screens burned at Industry Print Shop and just picked up the screens today.
Here’s a shot of the screens in my studio:
The theme for our show is hypercastles. I’m going to post images of our prints throughout the month of August.
The Complete Shaman Thunder
Since I finished posting the pages from Shaman Thunder last week, I just uploaded the whole thing to my comics page. Click the banner to read the whole thing from the beginning:
I’m proud of this comic. Josh Burggraf was a great guy for me to collaborate with because every time I got one of his pages in my inbox, it pushed me to try harder for my next page.
I’ve been thinking about how I want to approach blogging, going back and forth for a bit now, and I’d like y’all’s help. In my years as a blogger, I’ve just posted my own art, posted folk-sci-fi content, and, with this site, mixed both together. In April, I decided that the two-to-four hours a week that it takes for me to write two blog posts should instead be devoted to drawing. That’s why you’ve only seen comic pages here and I’ve been talking more about folk-sci-fi on my Twitter feed. But, as Scalzi pointed out to me with this post, why should I invest a lot of time and thought into a site hosted by a company that may one day be permanently beached or become a ghost town?
So what should I do? Would y’all like to see me:
- Continue to focus on posting my own comics or drawings here regularly, and leave other musings for other blogging platforms?
- Return tomixing in my own stuff with musings, reviews, and artwork that inspires me?
- Add a column where I roundup whatever things I find inspirational or interesting, like an expansion/curation of my tweets?
If there’s something I’m not thinking of, let me know that also.
