I've been thumbnailing up a storm for the comic Kyle and I have been working on (first issue to debut at ZineFest!) but I can't show you much of that. This weekend I'll start penciling that mo'fo. I've also been keeping a steady pace on my freelance work with Nomad Press who's book "Native Americans" I'm illustrating right now. Here's a little peak-a-loo:
I'm currently on Chapter 8 (of 9) and hopefully will be concluding this book mid to late February.
This past weekend I worked with Admissions to teach a class for Studio Preview Day, which is a day where SAIC invites students to come try out a class to see what the classroom environment is like. It's always a lot of fun! My class was a warm up writing/drawing exercise, a brief lecture and then the last 2 hours or so to write, draw, photocopy, assemble and trade one sheet comics. This was everyone makes a comic, but also leaves with 20 new comics!
Some examples from my friends, colleagues and convention goers
Assembling and eating lunch. They did a great job and I hope to see them again as SAIC students!
That's pretty much it for now. School starts this week and with that you all will be seeing a NEW poster on the blog here. Her name is Alex and she is my intern for the spring semester. I hope you all will wish her a warm welcome when she has her first post.
