Yeah, I know it's been a while, but I'm hoping to make up for my lack of activity by posting multiple art updates over the next couple weeks. Before I do that though I just I wanted to do a quick plug for a project I did some colouring work on late last year which has since come to fruition...
Brad Guigar's Evil Inc Annual Report Vol 4 is now up for pre-sale over at Evil Inc. Now if you've never bought one of Brad's Annual Reports in the past there are a couple things you should know. First off, unlike a lot of webcomic collections, Brad doesn't simply throw all his strips in a book and be done with it. What he does is completely reformat a years worth of material and lay it all out so that his books have the look and feel of a proper graphic novel, which results in an impressive new reading experience.
The other thing I wanted to point out about this particular book is that for the first time ever the Annual Report is being presented in full colour. Not only that, but the strips you'll find inside are all from the year before I even started colouring the webcomic, so they've never actually been seen in colour before now.
Brad and I put a lot of time and effort into this project so that it could be available in colour, and I think all that hard work and dedication have resulted in book that you folks will really get a kick out of. So if you have a bit of extra coin kicking around, please head on over to Evil Inc and pre-order the Evil Inc Annual Report Vol 4 today.
Alrighty folks, that's it for me for now. I'll be back on either later tonight or this time tomorrow at the latest to post one of my portfolio pages for y'all to look at.
PS: I am insanely tired right now as I write this, so kindly forgive any typos you may have found.
Been a long time. How ya been? Really? Awesome! Now lets get back to talking about me, shall we?
A while ago, Lar, put the idea in my head of trying out caricature work, and ever since then I've been sort of batting the idea around, but never really followed through on it. Well, to be honest I have made a couple passes at this art form in the past, but I never really felt comfortable with the results, so I quickly abandoned the idea.
Then recently I noticed another artist who's work I've enjoyed for a couple years now stepped out of her comfort zone and tried her hand at some caricatures, and posted the (quite impressive) results on her blog. So in the end I decided maybe it was time I grew a pair and gave it another shot.
Now, being the conceited guy that I am, I decided the best subject for my first attempt would of course be myself. Also, I figured if I was going to offend anyone with a piss poor likeness, it would be best if that person wasn't someone who would either inflict bodily harm, or withhold certain intimate favours from me (or quite possibly both).
And so this is what I came up with in my first attempt...
Not exactly perfect, no, but I think it shows a lot more promise then the stuff I did a few years ago.
Anyway, I guess it's time for me to wrap this up with another comment filled with good intentions and hopeful promises to update this blog again soon, but which will eventually prove to be completely false, and then get back to work.
PS: I recently added more links to my links page, but I'm still far from done. So if you're not up there, and you're pretty sure you should be, please don't be offended. I'm sure you'll find yourself kicking around there sooner or later.
