Dumpling Zen [Comic]
Posted September 27, 2013 at 12:00 am
I often find that zen zone when I'm doing something that's slightly mindless and repetitive, like coding HTML or mowing the lawn or cooking something or even coloring some times.  I can just turn off my brain and let go.

Also dumplings. I want more dumplings!!!!

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE (REPOST)


Next week, I’ll be hanging out at Artisphere in Arlington as part of the DC Conspiracy Magic Bullet artist in residence program (you know, I should probably get out to one of their meetings some day).  I’ll be there Thursday and Saturday to hang out and draw comics to anyone who comes and checks out the exhibit.  There will be pages from previous issues of Magic Bullet on display which should be a lot of fun.

So come on down, hang out, and draw some comics with me!

There's zen in all kinds of pinching!

No dialog. Exterior of Chez Wong.

PANEL 2

Bodie wiggles his fingers.

BODIE



Ah man, didn't think my fingers would get sore from dumpling pinching.

KANE



You know, I kinda liked it. It was a nice change of pace.

PANEL 3

Kane smiles and poses with his hands.

BODIE



You mean you don't enjoy sending comps back and forth only to lose the gig?

KANE



There's a calming zen to the repetition of the pinching.

PANEL 4

Bodie gestures towards his mouth. Kane leans back and rubs his belly.

BODIE



And you get to eat them when you're done!

KANE



That's the best part!

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!

I've spent a month with the iPad Pro and have some thoughts on what types of creators will find this to be a useful tool. This would have been a very different review without the reveal of iPadOS this past week.

Please take my thoughts with many, many, MANY grains of sand. I don't have other devices to compare the Pro to so it's not a very thorough review in my mind. But I try to answer the question, "What type of creator is the iPad Pro for?"
