Hey guys! For the first time, I’m looking to expand the Dresden Codak operation to such a degree that I can more regularly put comics out and update the site in general. This means hiring one or two people to help with all the backend (ie: non-comics making part) of Dresden Codak.
To that end, I’m going to be starting a Patreon soon! If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a funding platform that lets people pay an amount they choose for the content that artists create. Mine will be up in the next week or so, stay tuned!
Hey, Seattle! I’ll be at Emerald City Comicon March 28-30! I’ll be at the Topatoco booth, #1102. I’ve got all sorts of books and goodies, and I’ll be doing some dinosaur sketches for anybody who wants one.
I’ve had to overcome some serious behind-the-scenes hurdles, but that’s all behind us now. There’s some exciting news regarding the comic that I can’t wait to share in the near future, so stay tuned! 2014 is the year Dresden Codak takes over the world.
Due to an unexpected technical issue with my drawing hardware (which I’ve had to replace), I have to push back the update of the next Dark Science page to next week. Every delay burns me like a hot knife, but sometimes these things happen, sorry about that. Things are going well otherwise, and (despite this setback) I’ve actually concocted some new ways of updating the comic faster! Oh well, maybe next time.
Happy New Year, everybody! I’ve got some great news upcoming Dresden Codak in the next couple weeks, but for now I’d like to announce a new official side gig: The Silmarillion Project. I’m essentially illustrating every chapter of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Silmarillion, but also developing a comprehensive world and design that nobody else has yet to attempt. Not only am I looking to create an aesthetic unique from the Peter Jackson films (which are great, but far too ubiquitous), but I’m also trying to draw attention to the potential for racial and gender diversity in a genre that’s too often dominated by “more white dudes.” For more details on the project, check out the Q&A.
It’s something I unofficially started about a year ago, but public interest in the whole thing kind of spurred me on to continue it and really put something fun together. As it’s something I’m just doing when I have a free hour here and there, this won’t interfere with Dresden Codak updates. In fact I’m looking to double the amount of Dresden Codak updates this year, as I don’t have a massive Kickstarter to manage anymore!
2014 is the Year of Codak, we’re gonna make it happen. Stay tuned.
Conditions have not improved for our heroine!
Hey guys! Deadlines are approaching fast if you want to pick up a Tomorrow Girl book or any of my other products this holiday season. Check it out if that is a thing you’re into!
Hey guys! Did you miss out on The Tomorrow Girl Kickstarter? Here’s your first chance to get your hands on the book! I’ll be at the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD this weekend (Sept. 14-15) with copies of both the Silver and Gold editions of The Tomorrow Girl. Then next weekend, I’ll be in Portland, OR at Rose City Comic Con (Sept. 21-22) (you can find me at table 802)! After that, the books will be made available in my store.
Funny story: I’d been working on a totally different page (from the one above) up until a week and a half ago, when I realized that the pacing of the story would be thrown off if it went up in the original order. In a panic, I scripted, pencilled and painted this new page in that time, so I’m pretty proud of myself for cranking out a Dark Science page so fast, even if technically it extended the total time between updates. All that said, the original page I was working on will go up next pretty soon, as that one’s already partially colored!
