JAUNTIEST AND DAMN TRAITORS

spx:

This was such a lovely thing to find after last year’s show. 

When you put your blood, sweat and tears into something like SPX, you HOPE that an experience like this is what people - especially newcomers - get take away from it - along with fat wallets.

That jaredlovestodraw took the time to so beautifully illustrate his time at the show (complete with cameos - I SEE YOU dharbin ) blew every single one of us away. So thank you, Jared - Thanks again!  

There’s nothing better.

This is my journal comic about SPX this year. I had a great time and can’t wait for next year.  smallpressexpo
I’m going to start doing these journal shorts about comics art and life in anthro-animals.

With SPX fast approaching I thought I’d re-share my journal comic about last years show. I love everything about

"Wilfred Santiago’s 21 is brilliant and beautiful, challenging and lyrical … which seems exactly right, as Roberto Clemente was all those things and more.” – Rob Neyer, ESPN.com

"A kaleidoscopic look at the life of the great Clemente. Santiago’s artwork is superb and the depth of his passion for the subject and incredible preparation comes through on every page." – Steven Goldman, author of Forging Genius: The Making of Casey Stengel and editor of Baseball Prospectus

"I’ll admit, being a baseball player often feels like a comic book experience: the costumes, the origins, the battles for great victories and inspiration it conjures in our fellow man. This book captures the essence of one of our sport’s greatest heroes, and it does so in a way that engages the imaginations as much as it reveals the heart, ink, color, style, and character; I can think of no better way to share a tale of a true legend." – Dirk Hayhurst, Toronto Blue Jays pitcher and author of The Bullpen Gospels

A short little horror story.

Done for ALVCC, I had a little under two weeks to do the artwork and get it put together. It’s rough, but I’m still pretty proud that I was able to finish it.

I’ll most likely have some physical copies at future cons :)

Attention, Ross Campbell / Wet Moon Shadoweyes fans!  Ross is doing a sequel to his zombie apocalypse graphic novel, The Abandoned!

you can also read it here on smackjeeves if you don’t have a deviantart account to let you get past the mature content filter!

OH EXCITE.

though haha the trope on page 2!…it’ll be interesting to see how it develops (I mean I loved all the characters and if this is slice-of-life I am also down.)

omg teen merman is an actual merman???

honestly when the protags have cute horns and date (“date”) antlered and batwinged folks you’d think this would not be a startling revelation.

Anonymous asked: I would like to know how old are you. You see, I want to enter in a art school to learn to make my own comic; the thing is that I'm like 25 years old, and I would like to know if some people study art at my age

mooncalfe:

i’m 34 (ugh). there’s no limit to this kind of thing, if this is what you want to do, go for it.

that said, i personally don’t think you NEED to go to art school to learn to make comics or draw or whatever, there isn’t really anything there that you can’t learn on your own. lots of my favorite comics are made by people who never went to art school at all.

ALSO Anon should note that art is something of a “lifetime study”, people don’t necessarily pursue degrees at 40 or w/e (not that they couldn’t) but many “non-traditional student age” (35+ i guess) still take studio classes, do idk retreats, and hone their skills. I don’t wanna sound like I’m twisting the phrase to mean some saccharine BS about always growing, but really, even if you’re not matriculated, you usually still are “studying”.

+++ most cartoonists don’t make their most interesting work until they’re between 35-50…haha maybe I’m making that shit up, but I’ve had plenty of people say “yeah you really hit your stride at 40 or 50 with art”…art (and comics) isn’t like being a pop star, it’s not about youth and vitality, it’s about being stubborn and tough and knowing what you want…old people traits!! (this is what I’m convincing myself rn at this moment, i might be a bit manic and talking out my ass!!)

omg papa.
