Peek at New Randolf coming in Lump of Coal #4

Here's a peek at the third Randolf the Rundown Reindeer strip which will be included in Lump of Coal #4. Lump of Coal is the "bad atititude" holiday stocking stuffer mini-comic that is published through BPC for the Art Explorer Post 407 each year. It contains strips by the Post's students and advisor. Copies will be on sale at some local comic shops, the Devonshire Alternative Elementary School Craft / Art Sale on December 4 and at the Back Porch Comics website.
A shot of the cover will be up on the SPACE blog shortly.

New Projects May '10

All the dust is settling from SPACE and I've got part of my life back for the time being so I'm off to new projects.
The first is a new linoleum print book entitled "Obstacle". Above is a sketch of the main (actually only) character, Un. I enjoyed making the the hand printed SPACE bags for the show this year so I got the buzz to do another book. I've only done one entire book this way before in '05 with "Why I'm Not Musical" which was a little more ambitious then the current project. I also figured out a way to not destroy my back printing the things. "Obstacle" will hopefully be done for SMACC (Southern Michigan's Arts and Creativity Conference) on July 24 & 25 in Dearborn, Michigan. Go to SMACC for more info.
Also on the aggenda is Oh,Comics! #19: "Fire". I'll be contacting the contributors soon with a schedule. Hopefully it will be ready for Mid-Ohio Con this November 6 & 7.

New Vugz Project

There's a new Vugz strip coming up. It will be part of a secret project to promote SPACE. More info will be available in the next few weeks over at the SPACE blog. Above is a computer simulation color test for the hand painted strip. The first Vugz strip appeared in Oh,Comics! #18. Vugz will hopefully appear as a webcomic in the next year or so, just as soon as the current long term project, Bunny Blues / Leaves, is completed.
