So I'm back to my blog, webcomic, catchall whatever it is thing. Made a few modifications to the look. Gotta love weebly. Hopefully I can start really putting more stuff on here. Had some bumps and bruises lately and really just getting myself back in order. so if you followed this site and didn't see any progress I apologize and hope to remedy that soon. A lot has happened, most negative but I believe God's got a plan for me so I'll look onward and upward and progress. Wishing you all the very best this day, til we meet again, Aloha.
Amazing how so much can happen good and bad so quickly. Yes I've had a few snafus lately. Probably more than I care to suffer through ever again. But like that statement "it's always darkest before the dawn" I seem to see a light at the end of the tunnel. I am not unlike several other Americans struggling to find jobs or make ends meet. Seems like I might be getting a freelance gig to drawn up and coming The Crypt from Workhorse Comics Presents. Only 10 pages but its a start. Be nice to hold pencil in hand again and create. Well until something new happens. I also hope to continue Victory Acres this year. Eventually collecting enough to do a one-shot or small graphic novel. Be blessed everybody.
Thats right its coming. Today is the day before FCBD* (*free comic book day). Too long to type so I'll be referring back to the abbreviation. lol. FCBD is an awesome jump on point for new readers of comics. New readers being the young and those interested in hot movie properties out getting a back story. But its about just plain fun. Great titles some you know and others just waiting to open the imagination. FCBD means free, several comic book stores are opening later, having mini-cons, signings, contests, writers,, and artists signings. You can't go wrong here. Ultimate comics on Farrington Rd in Durham/Chapel Hill is promoting FCBD big. So I'll be there tomorrow, boys in tow. lol. With so very few comic stores still around and comics slowly growing back in momentum, FCBD is a great way to fan the flames.
Happy New Year,
Well a new year barrels on, hoping to improve upon myself and my practices throughout this year. I think I'll even try to enjoy myself more, do different things. I feel good about this year, seriously. And most definitely continue putting out Victory Acres. I enjoy doing Victory Acres. Some folks have commented and said that it reminds them of Fred Hembecks strips. To me thats a compliment. his humor on Marvel and DC continuity is priceless. Of course its my plan to develop other stories for Obscure Detour Comics. Also to make a presence at local Comic book conventions I'll post those events when I can. So I just want to thank those that have been following along,
Night of the Living Dead (N.L.D.) you know that black and white classic where slow walking denizens of the night stumbled about seeking brains. I watched that and have only had one thought ever since 'Why did the black guy have to die?' lol
Well since then there's been scores of Zombie movies. Scores is probably the wrong term anyway, hundreds? Anyway , personally I always thought zombie movies or media had a simple premise. Easily explained antagonist. Totally mindless and a perfect target for ammo fire.
Yet I've been religiously watching AMC's 'Walking Dead' based on the popular comic book of the same name. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Walking_Dead
I've tried to keep up with the comic reading it in sparse lately. But what I figure is the key to a good Zombie movie is not the gore content but the characters that you become attached to. That should be obvious right? Yes but most of the movies I've seen before this gem on AMC, has been more of a fear or squeamish factor. Splatter fest generally. The characters and storylines in Walking Dead are riveting. So I wish the best for this series at this writing is wrapping up their first season. No offense George Romero your N.L.D. will always be classic.
Well the NC Comicon has come and gone. It was a great event. Was able to get my books printed on time thanks to Double Data's Kevin Austin. They did great printing work, and I'll be using them in the near future for other projects. Unlike the other company (I refuse to name) I was gonna use that failed to deliver or return calls despite the numerous times I left messages. Anyway, the show was great made some good contacts. Gave me a lot of ideas and learning experience as to my next show, yes thats right next show, when can't say, looking toward Charlotte, NC Hero-Con. God willing and finances posible I'll try and make a showing. but this show was actually good. The atmosphere was right, laid back and potential for great networking and excitement to do new projects. Just look for me next time. peace. Gonna post pics soon.
Still working, things are slow but are getting better each day. Still looking for someone interested in my work. I'm hoping maybe to energize my graphic design and fine art opportunities.
