Got some neat Manga Studio tips from Colleen Coover today, but I’ll need to save up for 5 EX in order to use them. As our first big lesson, Cat and I are getting some scripts tomorrow to thumbnail. We each made a wishlist of things we wanted to learn, which Terri Nelson is using to organize lectures and workshops led by various members of Periscope Studio. I think I’m going to learn some draftsmanship from Ben Bates, which would be super-great. His Bebop/Rocksteady comic was just grand, ahhh there are so many amazing people in this place, it’s like Disneyland for me.

Alright you all, internship is canceled, I’m quitting comics to be a dapper butler.

Nah, I saw TofuBeast applying for one (and she should totally get the gig) and it made me think about the maid cafes I’ve seen at conventions lately. PokeCon had a really great one apparently, but all I saw were the amazing Eeveelution maid outfits.
What would my butler persona be, anyway? I feel like it’d be something like Honey from Ouran Hot Club. How does this actually work? I am fascinated.
So maid cafes are becoming more of a thing… I gotta admit, it’d be kinda fun to be a butler for a day or two. I feel like I’d have to shave my beard for it, though.
Almost eight years in webcomics and I finally made my first sprite comic. It’s small and weird and I don’t really know what I think of it. It’s on gumroad for two dollars.

Morning #sketches are for baby turtles and my fellow mento Catherine Pape posting with a toy gun.
Wendell is hands down the greatest homeless fashion designer who ever lived. He makes almost all his clothes from things he finds. I hadn’t seen him in awhile, so I was quite thrilled to walk up on him Tuesday, doing this to a Gandhi statue.
Helllooooooo new character design
Haha, love this illustration by my studiomate, Aaron McConnell, that he drew of the six Periscope Studio members being featured in our Kickstarter.
We’re $670 away from reaching the halfway point of being funded, with 14 days to go. If 27 people pledge $25, we’ll reach our halfway point AND those backers will get *two* art books plus ALL the book PDFs
We’re trying to fund full color, professionally designed art books of six of our members, including me.
