I spent a good portion of this week making new media tiles to attach to all my posts. If you’ve found your way to my posts via a different social media site, you’ve seen the originals. I posted them on a previous Fine Art Friday as well. These new ones are themed for Pride month! I hope you like them.
I’ve finally made a new web comic! It took a while to unclog my brain, but I’m finally getting some fun ideas to explore with this. Don’t worry I’m writing them down so that I don’t forget before I get a chance to sketch them.
Amazon is going to launch a new publishing platform called Kindle Vella. The stories posted on there will be serialized shorts from 600 to 5,000 words per episode. My stories for Two Page Tuesdays won’t be eligible for the new platform as one of the rules is that you can’t post episodes freely available from another site. I don’t want to make people start paying for Shadow-Blessed. It started free, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay. Still, I’m excited to try out the Kindle Vella. If you’re up to all caught up on Shadow-Blessed, you may remember Storm Ryder, the actor who revealed his magic on camera. Before I knew it, I started thinking about stories revolving around him. Kindle Vella feels like a great opportunity to explore his character and the lighter side of magic. Moon Witch Taken, Moon Witch Lost, and Shadow-Blessed all explore higher-stake situations than I want to explore in this new series, Dramamancer. Long story short, I’ve designed the “cover” art for Dramamancer this week. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
I’ve been going through the stacks of paper that I’ve saved throughout my life time because I’m a crazy pack rat. In the process I found a bunch of sketches that I did when I was bored in school back in the day. I thought it would be fun to share them on here.
I’ve been working on a new t-shirt concept and I don’t think it is quite there yet but it is pretty close. I’ll probably fiddle with the fine details of the design but I’ve gotten them pretty close to the concept as I imagined it. I hope y’all like them. Let me know in the comments what you think. 🙂
I’ve been going through all my old files on my computer a little at a time, trying to get my digital space organized alongside my physical space. In the process, I found some sample sketches for a webcomic I considered starting. I don’t even remember when I drew this. It was probably a long time ago, as I can’t think of the last time I saw this type of load screen when watching Netflix. I’ve always wanted to start a webcomic but have been intimidated by the idea that my art wouldn’t hold up to the standard I wanted. It was totally the wrong perspective. Instead, I should have been thinking about taking on that challenge and watching how my art skills would grow the longer I kept practicing. A part of me wonders where I’d be right now if I’d done that. The rest of me says screw regret. I’m gonna challenge myself now. I’ve got some planning to do.
