I'm getting into May with the Cardinal Press Espresso Bar 12-hour comic challenge complete and ready to feature in their upcoming local artist anthology. You can check out a preview below, with the first three pages of "Freelance Witchcraft", a side story for the Kingdom of Sunlight universe that many freelance artists may find all-too-familiar.
It really was quite a challenge to not only come up with a script on the spot, but also simplify my typically detail-heavy style to try and fit into the assigned time constraints. I was especially wary of facing my mortal enemy- the art of hand-lettering- and in that department at least, I'll be working digitally for the foreseeable future. But I think the experience was more than worth it! (admittedly, it took a bit longer than 12 hours to finish inking)
This month is mostly devoted to preparing for the season's many comic conventions. I'll be announcing my attendance at each in turn closer to the date- but for now, I can say with complete certainty that I'll be returning to Artist Alley at this year's Yeticon, where I'll be unveiling a new series of original prints and previews of my graphic novel project, “Kingdom of Sunlight”. Hope to see you there!
