Paul – A Chaos Book

I drew a new comic last weekend. It was written drawn in 21 hours. 18 hours on October 1st and 3 hours on October 2nd 2016. 

It was drawn using prompts from my Patreon backers. I’ve done this with backers once before and we got a crazy fun comic out of it. Since they helped write it they got to see it a few days before everyone else, but I’m excited to share it here now. 

It’s been too long since I’ve gotten to post completed comics to this site. 

Thank you, so much for sticking around.

Scissors, OH – Patron Preview 5

There’s another five pages at my next comic up on Patreon for backers to preview. These pages are different than most that I’ve done. I making some tweaks visually and I like the way it’s going.

Become a patron if you’d like to read the story so far, or wait until it goes public in a couple of months.

“Scissors, OH” Announcement

Exciting news! I’ve started a new comic series called Scissors, OH. I’m doing it in collaboration with one of my favorite cartoonists, the author of the fantastic Hereville series of books, Barry Deutsch.

The plan is for Barry and I to each draw our own stand alone stories that interconnect in interesting ways, both of which take place in our fictional town of Scissors, OH. (That title makes me laugh.)

My half is about two sisters named Erin and Megan who are adjusting to collage life together after being separated for a couple years. It’s a slice of life that’s funny in parts and sad in others and I can’t wait for you to read it.

We’re going to start posting weekly pages in a month or two, but I’ve got a head start and I’m excited to share. SO, to thank my patrons for funding this project I’ve started sharing scenes on Patreon as I finish them. The first scene went up yesterday and I’m hard at work on drawing the next diving into the next right after I post this, so if you want to read it early, or you want to support me in making these things, join the gang on Patreon.¬†We’d love to have you!

No shame if you’re not interested in pitching in however. The comic will be free to everyone once we’ve built up a back log of pages.

Thanks you guys!

If you happen to be in Portland this weekend and stop by Wizard Worlds Comic Con, say hello because I’ll be there and I love the word “Hello.” 

Some links you might like:

  • I’ve been posting all kinds of stuff to my Patreon page recently, including this page a few days before it showed up here, and a post about my approach to drawing it.
  • Writing Is Thinking” is not only a clear explanation of how to write, but why folks who don’t want to grow up to be writers might want to write anyway. Highly recommended.
  • Bill Murrys AMA was great.
  • I really enjoyed this profile of Jerry Seinfeld by the Guardian. I excerpted some of my favorite parts for you guys.
  • Barry Deutsch wrote a post about why the comic series Cerebus means so much to him and why it’s difficult to recommend all of it to everyone.
  • I backed my first Patreon project, the fantastic Modest Meduissa. Even if you don’t back Jake and his work, check out the comic. You won’t be disappointed.
    That’s all I’ve got for now. See you in a couple days!

Thank you to the generous folks who became patrons this week.

There are all kinds of neat things I’ve been sharing with the backers. I’ve been posting the pages of Oh, It’s the End of the World  to my Patreon page the day before they go up on this site. This one actually went up there two days before it arrived on my site. 

I’ve been sharing process drawings, like the pencils / roughs of each page before I ink them.

I wrote a post about the tricks I use for drawing crowd scenes. It’s been lots of fun.

I also did two illustrations for backers: one of Mary Sozer from The Chairs’ Hiatus and another of Erin and Howard from Oh, It’s the End of the World.
