Welcome to Reno

City of Cards C5.11: HERE!

Back from my road trip! I got a chance to visit friends up in San Francisco and meet my baby nephew for the first time. I'm exhausted, but it was a good vacation.

I also went to see the Madoka Rebellion movie and, well, it was pretty darn great. If you're a fan of the series, I think you'll find it a pretty satisfying ending.

As for things in City of Cards? Working on these pages has been an interesting experience. I'm going to write a bit about my thoughts and the significance of the map object so if you want to keep your brain clear of my ramblings feel free to ignore from this point on.

Road Trip Again!

City of Cards C5.9-10: HERE!

It's only going to get more uncomfortable from here, but I will have a bit to say about said found item.

I'm about to hit the road (in like, literally an hour). I'm kind of looking forward to this crazy trip. I'll be back on the 10th, though.

Also, I hadn't updated, but I continue to do more page edits and here's the latest complete batch:

Fusion

City of Cards C5.7-8: HERE!

There are going to a fair number of double page updates for the next while.

Happy Thanksgiving to you in the States. Take care and be well and if you're involved with Black Friday, be it shopping or working, be safe and sane. Same to those of you protesting.

City of Cards C5.6: HERE!

First, I did a bit of late-night fanart for the comic Title Unrelated of the characters Twapa and Axis:



Been working on a few more panel edits:




And lastly, a bit of bedhead as well as a close up of Ace's t-shirt design for this chapter:

The Wind Rises

City of Cards C5.4-5: HERE!

I got a chance this past afternoon to see Hayao Miyazaki's film "The Wind Rises" and first and foremost I have to say if you have an opportunity to see this film while it's making its circuit, it is well worth it.

It's one of those films that touches on a wide arrange of thought-lines about life and death and love and passion for one's work and the people in their lives, cultural and personal identity, as well as being clearly a metaphor for the culmination of the life's work of an artist.

There's a lot I could say about it, really, but more than anything it made me want to get back to working on my own passions. I can't think of anything better than that.

City of Cards C5.3: HERE!

Xander continues to poke Plato's ego.

Possible weekend plans kind of got in the way of my ability to think of a proper blog post for this week, so enjoy the Halloween pic I did for last week:

City of Cards C5.2: HERE!

More pages edits from Chapter Two:

I was hoping to get this up earlier but it’s actually taken me awhile to get more edits finished than I’d like. All of these are from Chapter Two and are kind of an interesting batch for me because there are panels here where I’d actually already done an edit before and went back and retouched it, as well as edits that I’m conflicted about and am going to maybe come back to.

As I’ve said in previous posts about this process, editing teaches you a lot about your own work. Early work might be rough and full of technical issues, but that doesn’t always mean that the intent was off. Still, I enjoy this process and hopefully the results will be worth it.
