City of Cards C4.35: HERE!

I kind of love the way that first panel was composed. And yeah, Plato isn't in a good place mentally right now. It's been a rough night for them.

So, um, I was going to do a bit more of a blog post today but got distracted when a flash flood decided to take a dump on the school's print lab. Luckily it could have been much, much worse.

So, here's everything I'll be bringing to SPX minus the forth chapter that I'm trying to get done with as fast as I can:

It's kind of weird, in a way, to see my life's work slowly pile up upon itself in these little books.

City of Cards C4.34: HERE!

Adrenaline crash.

Well, for Plato, but not for me quite yet. However, I did finish the art for my new SPX mini.

Next week I'll hopefully have a full info post as well as pictures of how the final production looks.

Till then, here's some sketches for the info post I'm putting together:

30 Days

City of Cards C4.33: HERE!

Plato can be intimidating (at least, I think he can be). Someone with that size and that strength has to be careful.

Um, so apparently there are only 30 days till SPX. I've been wanting to do a more thorough write up of my thoughts on this (or, more importantly directed people to my table-mate Elle Skinner and her comic Missing Monday).

BUT that'll have to wait. This week, I'm posting another preview picture:

City of Cards: Brilliant Joker 8

City of Cards C3.32: HERE!

Cache issue has been solved! So there shouldn't be any problems viewing the current pages.

Not much to say except I had some fun with the character designs on this page.

Also, Plato's impulsiveness isn't always a bad thing.

Beyond that, after SPX I'll be heading back to SoCal for an indefinite period of time in part to help out with family. It'll be good to be back and I'll be figuring out things from there.

Thanks everyone that's helped out during this time. (Also, I just got back from seeing Pacific Rim sooo there's that.)

August 2013: SPX Countdown GO

City of Cards C4.30-31: HERE!

Two pages this week because, well, why not? Apologies if there's still a cache issue. There's nothing I can do on my end for now.

On a side note, with all the moving I've done in my lifetime, and all the places I've lived, I've loved just how much the city I'm building has really become a hometown to me. It's so much a little bit of every place I've ever spent any real amount of time in.

Also, a little bit of an update on my mini comic progress for SPX:

That's the finalized front cover and first page of the comic (minus text). I ended up deciding that I'd put all relevant information for the mini on the back cover which is pretty much what I did for the first mini as well. I kind of like how different the cover for this mini is from the first. Considering it's the joker card, that's pretty apt.

I've also decided since I'm going to be SO close to finishing up Chapter Four by the time SPX starts that I'm going to go ahead and have it done for the convention. Pages will go up as scheduled online so if you end up with a print copy you'll get to read about a month ahead of everyone else so honestly not that big a difference.

Best wishes to all the CCSers that are making their way in the world. You all are awesome and it's exciting to see where you're all heading. I'm still figuring things out a bit myself and I guess in the next couple of months I'll have a better idea of what's in store.
