Flying V [Comic]

I thought I'd give everyone a break from emotional feels and do a fun little arc with guitars and awesomeness.  Also to give myself an excuse to draw a Floyd Rose tremolo.  I actually had a shitty knock off Randy Rhodes flying V that I picked up for like $30 or something like that. Sounded like utter shit. If I can track it down (it might be in my parent's house somewhere), I might sand the shit down, repaint it, and redo the electronics just to see if I can figure the shit out. EMG now offer solderless pickup systems so I might even get away without having to learn how to solder anything!

SUPER OTAKON FIGHT


This weekend is the dreaded Otakon.  Super Art Fight will be hitting the stage Saturday night at 12:30am. So I guess it's technically Sunday ass early in the morning.  But we will be there to horrify you with drawings of things.  We'll be there during the day in the artist alley Saturday and Sunday so you can stop by and give us high fives and shit.

Floyd Rose equals SHRED!

Morning Lance.

PANEL 2

Kane suddenly points excitedly.

LANCE (Off panel)



Morning. Hey, sorry I missed Dumpling Day, but the lawyer dropped off a bunch of Miss Jessy's things.

KANE



It's okay. It was a little last min-WHOA! TH-THAT!

PANEL 3

Lance gestures to the Jackson Randy Rhodes Flying V on the couch next to him.

LANCE



This? Apparently, this was Miss Jessy's.

PANEL 4

Close up of the guitar.  We can see it's a little banged up.

KANE (Off Panel)



Miss Jessy was a metal head?!

I'm so excited!!!! School for Extraterrestrial Girls Volume 1: Girl on Fire is finally finished and ready for preorder!!! And if you click on that link, you can download and read the first chapter for free! If there's a limit to exclamation points, I'ma break that shit in this post!!!

Working with Jeremy on this book has been a true delight. There have been moments when I wanted to shout at Tara and moments when I just wanted to hug her as I was drawing pages. I've also learned a whole lot about what it takes to complete a long form project like this. Papercutz has been super supportive throughout the process and we couldn't have asked for a better team. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on this book!!! I'll be sure to throw copies at everyone I see.

So now you can see what's taken me away from YP for so goddamn long. I'm taking a short break to finish up some projects that piled up during production, but I do intend to get back to some YP goodness. I probably won't be able to sustain a regular schedule since Book 2 is on the near horizon, but I plan on updating as I can.

If you would like to see a full preview of Book 1, I've posted the full colored book over at my Patreon in all its glory! I also post a weekly podcast over there with news and commentary on the art scene so if you're looking for things to occupy your brain for a few minutes, check it out!

Alright, that's it for now! I'll yell about all sorts of updates and such as they happen!

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!
