Calling It a Victory!

Okay this is the last update about all the projects that needed to get done by SPACE.  What's done is done and what's not is not.  I'm calling it a victory.

11/19/11 – Lump of Coal #5- Art Due 4 page Randolf the Run-down Reindeer strip ( DONE!)

1/15/12- Oh,Comics! #20 “Air” Art Due 4 page B-Valve strip. (DONE!) I had to change directions on the media. I originally intended this to be painted but after starting the first two pages things were not working out the way I expected. Plus with all the layering I needed to do it was never going to get done. I was finished on 2/11/12 almost a month after the deadline I set. Fortunately I still have pleanty of time to get the book together for SPACE. Oh,Comics! #20 looks pretty good. Got a lot of great strips from all the contributor. Above is my finished page 2. For a peek at the cover and a list of contributors go to  Got these back from the printer last week!!!

1/15/12 A Bowl Full of Happiness (The Sea Monkey anthology for the Hero Intiative) 1 page strip. (DONE!)

2/15/12 Magic Bullet #4- One page strip. This is kind of tentative but I've been thinking of doing something with George, Abe, Tom and Teddy. (Decided not to try and hit this one).
2/25/12- SPACE Anthology 2012 – 2 page Vugz strip. (DONE!) I got the books back from the printer this week and they look great. Check over at

3/31/12- Untitled #8 Art Due 1-4 page Entropy Alley strip (This didn't happen this year. My fault I've missed alot of time with the Art Explorer Post this year.)

3/31/12 -Bunny Blues/ Leaves #6 28-30+ page finale (15 pages completed.) I had to call this one.  It looked like another 10 or 11 pages to go and there just wasn't time to finish it.

Alternate project-  Vugz Fragments-Since I didn't get BB/L #6 done I wasn't going to have a new minicomic for SPACE this year so I decided to collect all the Vugz strips I did in Oh,Comics! and the SPACE Anthology the last few years.  The Oh,Comics! strips have never been published in color and the SPACE Anthology strips have never been printed so I collected them all and printed them in color.  The strip for this years SPACE Anthology was colored with markers instead of the paint I intended so  I could hit the schedule.  I had extra time to work on it after SA12 was on the way to the printeres so I have included  a re-mix of that strip in Fragments. I was also able to sort the strips in the correct sequence so the over all story is starting to make a little more sense.  There is still a lot of fill in story which will be produced in one way or another after BB/L #6 is done.  Fragments is in production at the printer and should be back in time for SPACE.

Hope to see everybody at SPACE in a few weeks!
