The above is 1 of 5 scenes pulled from a recent project. And unlike a typical scenario, where a scene is pulled at the rough stage, these scenes were pulled after coloring. So why were they pulled? Interesting enough, it had nothing to do with quality or content but instead the deliverable date. Due to a shift in the timeline it became imperative to shorten the overall deck (aka “presentation”). The results being this along with 5 other “establishing shots” being pulled. So sometimes pulled work is simply a matter of having a deliverable scaled back.
And special “thank you” to the team for allowing this scene to be shared here!
The above is a pulled scene from a recent project. The character, originally named “Malena,” was later named “Melinda” and then revised from female and male. In spirit of the “M” names we settled on “Michael” for the final deck. And too bad too…cause I was actually digging the document linking approach here. But-oh-well. I’ll just use it another time. Like, tomorrow.
Recently I was introduced to zines at the “Grand Rapids Zinefest.” And, honestly, walking into the event I had no idea what to expect. Yet by the time I left I was dying to make a zine. In fact, I was ready to mass produce and offer ‘em up for $0.25 a piece. Unfortunately, various projects blocked those efforts and I’m still waiting to take a proper swing at it.
So until time permits I’m offering the following piece. Which amounts to ,well, an inside joke. One between a certain amazing artist :) and myself. Anyhow, the piece below was drawn directly onto a single, folded, letter-size piece of paper and illustrated with a brush pen. Plus alil’ Copic action. Otherwise that’s it. Enjoy.
Wanna make your own? Well here’s folding instructions for a tiny 8-pager like the one above.
