Pre Thanksgiving art
Hmm ... so if I'm ever going to look legit online I think I'm going to have to plead for a new scanner and a personal photography assistant for Christmas. My scanner, while it was free in the Brown University dumpster, is really meant for sending faxes and printing out term papers. It's not meant for large scale illustrations.
And while 4.0 mega pixels on a camera sounds impressive, it doesn't do too well when attempting to show detail in painting.
But I suppose the important thing is that the artwork is done and is in existence.
I am working on a new comic which will be a series of short stories in a final collection called
"A Town Called Orange". Each issue will have a painted cover that will be color photocopied. The first story is about space exploration in the suburbs. I'm trying to make the Twilight Zone for Kids ... a surrealist's view of suburbs. The next story is about a boy with a talking guitar ... an all night video arcade by the coast ... the champion of Candlepin Bowling ... and feeling abandon and escape while deep sea fishing.
This will probably be the end my comics being set in suburbs. Once they are completed, I think it's time to move on.
