Blog to come!]]>
**EDIT!** I neglected to mention that I’ve a guest comic over at 6-COMMANDO today; I’m lucky enough to have been asked to fill in one of twelve pages for a story written by Christopher Wrann (who wrote a fill-in chapter for reMIND between volumes 1 & 2). The story was a collaborative effort: 13 artists on 13 pages. Thanks to Mathieu Moyen for seeking me out for the project. Now it’s time to get cracking on MADE in USA again.
What’s happened in the meantime?
The next several pages are laid out. There will be no text for the time-being and I’ll be looking into a site-layout that allows the pages to be viewed more quickly as a result: my belief is that ‘no reading’ will lead the viewer to demand less time between pages to hold interest. I’ve posted more on the history of this project as earlier blogs. Because tutorials and testimonials have helped me so much, I’ve started documenting my illustration progress under the impression that everyone has something to teach and learn. If I post the methods I use, maybe someone will teach me the proper method!
I’ll start that when the next comic posts (which will be up on Monday). It won’t be too exciting; I’ll be talking about my page template, what it’s for, why I built it and how, the changes it’s gone through and what I’m using now.
See you in a week!]]>
Hey, have I mentioned I’m back in school? Yup, taking up the bulk of my waking hours is school, followed by family and home, so MADE in USA is taking a break until the week of August 6 when, HEY! I’ll have a guest comic on 6-COMMANDO (http://www.viciousprint.com/6commando/).
In the meantime, take a looksee through the pages; I’ve removed the mass of text from the pages ’cause the way I was writing (rather than Ben, the previous writer) the story didn’t fit didn’t fit at all.
So I’ll let the pictures tell the story … unless someone out there has a block of text that they feel fit the images and, after reading, I agree. I don’t believe it’s stronger without text, per se, just stronger without MY text.
See y’all in 2 weeks!]]>
Uncle Sam, in my mind, is a cross between George Washington and Abe Lincoln. Looks the part and acts the part. He’s the most patriotic parts of some of our favorite presidents draped in a blue jacket and red-n-white striped pants.]]>
