Apocalyptic Dayz (2.0)

Posted this a couple of weeks ago but took it down soon after. I want to keep it here, though. To remind myself.

Maximum Tolerated Dose

Went and saw this film a couple of days ago. Very much worth checking out.

Boredom Pays preview, what's up, etc.

Here’s a page from a story in Boredom Pays #6

I haven’t really been posting all that much on here lately but, I promise you, I am indeed hard at work. I’ve been working on finishing up Boredom Pays #6 which was originally going to be put out in August before I decided to scrap half of what I had and get another couple of stories together. I’ve got about 5 pages left to draw and it will for sure be done by this time next month, I promise! I also just finished a piece for the unsolved mysteries anthology that I’m pretty stoked about.

I’ve also started working on a super secret fiction project that I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time. I’m not going to say much about it but I’m pretty excited about the ideas that are coming out. I Might post things about it at some point. Not likely for quite some time though. I’m letting it gestate. Comics take a lot of time if you’re really trying to do something worthwhile so that’s exactly what I’m going to give it. I’ve got other things gestating, too, but I probably shouldn’t even elude to them without knowing if these are things that are going to happen. I hate to eat my words.

I’m tabling at Canzine in Toronto again this year, which is typically a fun show to do. My high point last year was having Chester Brown buy some of my books. Not likely to top that this year but I’m stoked for it, as always. I’m going to make Expozine in Montreal happen, too. I’ve been meaning to get out there for the past three years but have always had plans fall through. This year I’m going to come by myself on the bus and hang out with people I don’t know. The idea terrifies me but it’s also something I would like to get comfortable with. I want to start going to more shows in different cities. This is a start.

So. Yeah. I feel like a shit for not posting anything ever anymore. But the truth is I’m just working on longer, more substantial pieces. It’s harder to find those bite sized pieces to share with you guys. I’ll find something though, I promise. Thanks for continuing to pay attention to what I’m doing.

Much love

Influences: Jason

 Jason is one of my favorite storytellers working in comics today.

His drawings are incredibly iconic, which is obvious at a quick glance. I would say that his writing, too, is iconic. His stories are so perfectly designed. Structured. Almost diagrammatic. Playing off of all of the troupes of any genre he decides to work in while maintaining a novel quality to them at the same time. They’re very familiar, yet something entirely new. I feel as though he approaches writing in the same manner that I attempt to it but there’s something I’m missing. Something I don’t quite understand. Every time I sit down and read one of his stories I get closer to it but am never quite able to grasp what that is that I’m lacking. Reading his stories are such an exhilarating and frustrating mess of excitement for me. Highly recommended.
