Monkeying Around With WordPress!

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

If you’ve been by the site more than once today, you may have noticed the WordPress themes changing, and a slow evolution of the design of the site. I’m going to be moving the links that were on the left up to the top as I slowly recreate all of that content using WordPress. I’ll probably still have a few static html pages up, but I’m going to try to get as much of it upgraded to Web 2.0 as I can.

Thanks for your patience.

Something Fun!

Monday, October 29th, 2007

I started work on a short story a few weeks back. I’m doing tight pencils so I can send it out as samples to various editors in the hopes of getting some freelance work. But I’m also doing it as a fun break in the midst of doing a 220+ page graphics novel (Wahoo Morris). Sometimes you just need to complete something short and fun to keep from drowning.

I’ve pencilled the whole story, and I’m slowly tightening them up in my spare time. Here’s the fourth page for your enjoyment. Goofy Sci-Fi fun!

The Mighty Motor Sapiens!

Monday, October 29th, 2007

For the last few months I’ve been inking a daily comic strip, about cars and lizards from the center of the earth, called THE MIGHTY MOTOR SAPIENS. It is created by INSIGHT STUDIOS GROUP and runs daily on ROWDY dotCOM, a social networking site for NASCAR fans. It’s a bit of an odd couple combination, but the strip is designed to be reminiscent of Scooby Doo and 80′s Hanna Barbara cartoons, and it’s kind of goofy and a lot of fun. It’s been running for 8 weeks now, and all of the archives are free. Check it out.

Here’s the first pass of the pencils for a possible comic re-print of my Sîan story. I’ll post the inks when I’ve got them done.
