Early Interaction [Comic]
Posted January 21, 2013 at 12:00 am
It doesn't happen often, but I can't stand it when people look over my shoulder as I work.  Drawing is different, but when I'm at work coding something or designing something, I must prefer to show a finished iteration than to have someone stare at code over my shoulder and ask me why the change they wanted hasn't happened yet.

Going Back to Cali


Thanks to Nerdmelt for letting us art all over you.  Thank you to everyone who made it out to Nerdmelt for our show.  It was a fucking blast.  And thank you for tuning in online if you weren't able to physically make it to the venue.  Special thanks to lovely Lea Hernandez and Ethan Nicolle for melting faces with us.  I wish they were closer because I'd love to have them art fight again.  Hell, maybe we just need to book more dates in LA.

I was only able to stay for a night, but I miss LA already.  Maybe it's the type of people art fight tends to attract, but I met a whole bunch of awesome folks who are just as silly and nerdy as we are.  It also turns out I have a few friends out there that I haven't seen in ages.  And the weather is absolutely gorgeous.  It's a bit random seeing a guitar store, strip club, and comic shop on the same block, but there's also 24 hour pho.  Can't wait to get back to LA.

The West side tour continues next month when we hit the Macworld Live stage in San Francisco on Friday, February 1 from 2-2:45pm.  We will be art fighting with pixels which should be lots of fun.  And I believe they will be streaming the event on the site.

Alright, I gotta sack out.  Thanks again, LA!

Oh great, another webcomic with two people playing video games on a couch.

Sounds like you guys got a lot done today.

Yeah. Usually, I don't like too much client interaction so early in the process.

PANEL 2

Ally continues.

ALLY



But it really helped having lance there.

PANEL 3

Clients crack me up. One of the women I worked with had this--

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?"
