Quick Wedding Post

Filed under: Life — Tags: , — William Cardini @ 7:40 am

Hey y’all I know I said that I’d start posting a comic today, but I decided to postpone that until next week because there are some things I want to talk about this week, namely my wedding and STAPLE!

Our wedding/reception was a lot of fun. There are a couple of details that I was involved in so I thought I’d post those here.

We had a unity volcano instead of a unity candle. Glade and I made it and then I painted it, here’s an action shot:

Glade and Mark's ceremony
Picture by my uncle. Sorry it’s a bit blurry. Notice the froghead on my best man.

The eruption wasn’t quite as high as we were hoping but oh well. The officiant (my good buddy Will Sellari, pictured holding microphone) included some lines from King Crimson in the ceremony. Also, one of my friends told me that they felt a strong gust right before the procession and knew that the wind wizards were giving their blessing. So, all in all, it was a pretty proggy wedding.

It was also pretty froggy. All of the dudes in the wedding party and the dads had these frogheads that Glade made. Here they are all lined up in a row (without their hats):

Also, I drew the ceremony program:

The front and back covers for the ceremony program.

I made the comic that I’m starting to post next week for the ceremony program. Yes, we had the idea before we heard about Adrian Tomine’s latest book.

STAPLE! is this upcoming weekend here in Austin. For the third year in a row, the Gold County Paper Mill will have a table. I’ll post about what we’re bringing in detail on Friday.

Stud Nite

Filed under: Sketchbook Pages,Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — William Cardini @ 10:13 pm

I just got back from my weekly studio nite. I finished a storyboard for the motion comic that I’m gonna make with Will Sellari (tentatively titled Hyperbox #3.7) and I did some sketches.

I was really struggling to come up with some ideas for my Taffy Hips submission. Maybe the freedom of digital printing (no size limits, full color) is too much for my feeble imagination?

Stud Nite

I dig the sense of a world that I managed to create in the drawing at the top of this page, maybe it’d be good for a videogame? Otherwise I’m just filling the page. Giants. Yawn. Tarp things and crystals. Yawn.
