Let's Get Some
Posted November 6, 2018 at 12:35 am

Couple of links for ya today.

First up, I did a comic for The Nib which is a daily comics publication that features political, bio, essay, and journalistic comics. I've always kinda wanted to do political type comics, but I could never quite encapsulate an idea to a single panel. Fortunately, The Nib takes long form submissions. So I wrote a piece about my conservative aunts and my consternation at their political choices. Just in time to fuck up my Thanksgiving!

I've played League of Legends exactly once, but I follow a few of their artists on their social medias so of course I saw the K/DA "Pop/Stars" music video when it dropped. Holy shit, what a fucking banger! And now I'm sadly disappointed that LoL is not a Kpop sim game. Because fucking shit, I wanna play as a masked rapper with spray cans! If they sell that neon mask, I'ma get that shit and just wear it all day.

BODIE

Shit. I?m sorry, that came off way more harsh than I intended.

BODIE

Don?t listen to me. You guys are adults. And besides, we might have to shut it all down anyway.


KANE

The fuck?

BODIE

Frankly, business is kinda slow right now. Nothing new, right. Feast or famine is pretty much the start-up handbook.


BODIE

But our feast times haven?t been enough to sustain us through our famines. This one is particularly bad.


====

BODIE

I should have admitted this sooner, but I?m just not that great at business development.


ALLY

Hey, that?s not true. You?ve gotten us this far.


====

BODIE

Yeah, right into a hole. I?m a designer, not a marketer. It just kinda fell on me. I mean, Kane is a nightmare with clients.


====

KANE

I?m not good at small talk. Or not rolling my eyes when they ask for dumb shit.


ALLY

Don?t look at me. I went to business school for project management.


====

BODIE

I don?t know what I?m doing and I think that?s holding us back.


ALLY

Well, maybe we can throw some interns at the problem.


====

KANE

We don?t have interns.


ALLY

But we can get some!


====

ALLY

Look, we?re not at the point where we can support someone full time, but we can probably afford an intern for a short duration to help us get some business going.


Business students are always looking for interesting internships to put on their resumes, even small start-ups.

ALLY

What?s more interesting than working with a design firm with action pornstar Lance Li on their client list!

New video! This took so damn long to put together. I have no idea how those graphic recorders do this live. Here's an overview of the business of comics in 2020, visual notetaking style!

The book is coming out August 4!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

You can get a preview of the first chapter on the Papercutz website here. This is a little rundown of how I painted to cover.

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!
