Page one of a short comic I’m trying to draw in the midst of working, going to school, etc. This will be part of a black and white (greytone) anthology comic I’m working on called Little Doodles. No idea when I’ll finish it but here’s the first page at least.
I apologize to anyone who was expecting physical copies of FruitBat to be in local stores today but I just received the copies in the mail and the printing is terrible. I can’t sell what I was sent. They printed a double page spread on the front and back of one page, put two blank pages in the back of the book, and it could have been easily avoided if they had followed the instructions I sent with the file! I’m so disappointed by this but I hope to get it corrected as soon as possible. Again I am so sorry that I wasn’t able to get them out this week.
For those who are interested here are the first five pages plus cover of FruitBat. Again, FruitBat is now available for digital download and to purchase physical copies at IndyPlanet! Digital is only $1 and physical $5! If you like watching a giant apple dispense bodily harm to other fruits and vegetables this is the comic for you!
So FruitBat will be at my local comic book store, Comic Book University, on Wednesday and just like the first issue of Wastes of Space I’ve decided to do a premium edition. For the Wastes of Space premium edition I included a drawing of Craig that you could cut out and make into a 3-D “action figure” and for this one I’m including sketch cards. I am only making six premium edition copies this time around so I drew six different sketch cards that will be randomly added. So if you buy a copy it will include one of these hand drawn sketch cards!!! There will also be a FruitBat button and the book will be signed, bagged, and boarded! 36 pages in full color! All for $5! If you do not live on the Southside of Indianapolis you can purchase a digital or physical copy of FruitBat from IndyPlanet. Digital copies will also be available from Comixology very soon. Digital is 99 cents and physical is 5 bucks.
FYI my new comic FruitBat is now available to purchase digitally or physically at http://www.indyplanet.com/front/?product=106709
It will soon be available on Comixology and in a limited number of comic book shops.
I just took over for a teacher for the rest of the year at a High School teaching something I know very little about (Dreamweaver, web design, typing, tech stuff), I have a huge end of the semester project due for college, I’m working to finish two comics, and now I may be taking on a part time job to help pay some bills. So please forgive me if I’m not active on social media for a little while….
I just drew this for a comic I’m doing about a knight rescuing a princess (you know, that old trope). I’m kind of proud of the horse more than anything else. I’ve never given drawing a horse much effort and this guy/gal came out almost exactly as is from a sketch I did. I made him/her a bit smaller than scale just to match the small stature of the knight. I also didn’t draw a tail on the horse for some reason but as this is just a preliminary drawing I’m not sweating it too bad….
THE ARTISTS OF GOD-ZINE-LA
Congratulations to everyone who managed to get into God-Zine-La!
And thank you to EVERYONE who entered. I had a lot of entries and choosing the final ones was very very. That’s why there are so many entries - I was completely expecting to have 30 pages TOPS. And now it’s 74 pages long. So please be aware that if you didn’t get in I was pushing it as it was and you are totally welcome to enter into the next zine!
Well I didn’t make it in but that’s no reason for you to not buy it! Check it out!
Final sketch from the INDYpendent show finalized. Good fun and I got to hang out with my wife and my little brother. I wish more people had shown up but what can you do? The show was meant for comic book creators and wanna be comic book creators to get together and share information and it definitely did that! I learned a lot from the other creators that I will use from now on.
I liked the sketch that I did at the show the other day so much that I inked and colored it. I was so happy with the sketch that all I did was ink over it. I made very few changes which is unusual for me as I obsess over things sometimes.
Preorder Here - http://hamishsteele.bigcartel.com/product/god-zine-la
Preorders are useful as they will help fund the initial print run and gauge initial interest.
IF YOU HAVE SUBMITTED SOMETHING TO GOD-ZINE-LA THEN YOU DO NOT NEED TO PREORDER. All entires, even if they are not included, will receive a complimentary copy.
You can still submit entries to email@example.com until midnight April 1st GMT. That’s just over a week left!
Just a reminder that you can pre-order GOD-ZINE-LA already!
I’ve just done the maths and yeah… because I want this book to be as good as possible, it is costing me QUITE a lot of money. Much more than I anticipated. I fully intend, in time, to make the money back from selling it but still… pre-orders will really help fund the initial print run.
I really hope everyone will pre-order this Godzilla tribute book! It’s chock full of great Godzilla fan art and will be well worth whatever Hamish decides to charge for it. I also hope that at least one of my entries made it into the book lol. Please check it out!
Cleaned up and colored version of a sketch I did at INDYpendent show yesterday. I hope no one is surprised by this revelation as they don’t seem to be trying to hide this from anyone.
