Clearly, this is gonna be a monthly updated blog sort of thing. That’s okay! The best place to keep up with me is Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr or Facebook…but if you prefer just a monthly dump of updates…by all means, continue to read this blog!
Here’s what I’ve been up to…
1. I got a major Sawdust Press accomplishment done this month, sending Blood Root #1 to press! Here’s a picture of the front and back covers(front cover is a bit out of date, Tarwater Studio has been added to it as well), both of which I painted.
2. I also finished the designs for a small notecard set, featuring some of my favourite cryptids. I’m working through some other geographic regions as well.
3. Oh, I finished a 8 page foldy zine as well! It’s called the Field Guide to the Common Leafbug, and the title is pretty self explanatory. In my world, I see it as an educational guide produced by the Center for Otherworld Science. Here’s are the pages, laid out in no particular order, but I’ll be listing it in my store soon if you’d like a physical copy.
4. Work progresses on The Last Outpost! If you don’t know what the Last Outpost is, it’s a post apocalyptic haunted house installation that will be going to Burning Man this year. I got a honararium from the Burning Man organization that helps me with the cost of lugging a 26′ box truck full of lumber 1600 miles, but it’s still a lot of work(and money!) going into this project that I’m doing because I really, really, really want to. The best way to keep up with what’s going on on that front is to follow blackrockciviliandefensecorps.tumblr.com.
I’m really glad I get to work on this project. I love comics and sculpting, but there’s this wonderful productive energy that I get sucked into when I get to get my hands dirty and build something big, and it just really helps all my other art thrive, as much as I end up getting panicky about deadlines because this BIG HUGE PROJECT I took on is sucking up all of my time.
5. Oh right, I am a sculptor. The best way to keep up with what I’m doing is on Instagram, but I swear – I really have been sculpting a bit.
6. Oh, ONE MORE THING. I’ve been working on some new stories that will probably take the form of comics. This one is about a bunch of eleven year old girls who are training to pilot adorable mechs to smash on confused monsters. The mechs are pretty adorable too. It’s called Miss Kitty’s School for Mech Pilots. Miss Kitty is a cat.
7. Wait, I’m not done. I updated The Center for Otherworld Science comic with quite a few new pages as well. This current chapter has space worms in it. You can catch up at otherworldscience.com.
Alright. I’m done now. See you next month!
