This morning I got not one, but TWO pieces of fan-art! I’m super excited about them.
The first is from Jazyl Homavazir. You might know him as the creator of the awesome Webcomic, “Beast Legion”. And yes, that is a mash-up of our two comics! How cool is that?!? Expect to see something similar from me in the close future.
The second is a friend of my who also works at PopCap Games with me. Make sure to follow Genevieve Saint Charles. She’s amazing! Her recent “Stranger Things” art totally blew up on the internets!
The Giant gets all caught up and their crazy plan.
Also, I will be at Rose City Comic Con this weekend for anyone who is in the Portland area. Make sure to come by and visit me.
Figured it would take Sno to catch that pesky monkey!
In other news, I received word that Hominids was finally approved to be on Comixology! I’m not sure when it will be up just yet, but I’ll make sure everyone know when it is.
Until next week Hominerds!
Look at these amazingly adorable, wonderful Hominids sketches from my friend Karin Madan. This is just a taste of what she can do. Make sure to follow her Facebook page as she does some of the cutest illustrations and makes her own plushy dolls.
i want to share some beautiful sculpture work from my artist friend Lyla Warren. She recently sculpted this amazing Zona statue and sent it in a bunch of angles. Make sure to follow her work. She does these amazing little Seedling characters, not to mention some amazing Disney sculptures that actually sold in Disneyland. Here’s her Facebook, Pinterest, and Tumblr
Chapter 7 is finally here! Thanks for everyone’s patience.
In part, the long wait was due to the need for a break. 6 chapters is basically the equivalent of a full graphic novel and after getting through that, I just needed the time off. I also needed time to get a bit more organized on things like printing, writing the next book and getting a Patreon account together. The Patreon, I hope will be coming very soon so keep a look out for that.
Even though it’s been such a long break, I’ve still been keeping myself busy. The biggest of which was making the below animation. If you haven’t checked it out yet, take a look. I think it’s pretty cool.
I also got a lot of great Hominids art from some great artists who I hope you check out.
This is an amazing Lye pin-up by Al Fukalek, artist of The Specialist.
My apologies if you want to make a comment. It seems it’s not working on the chapter 7 page. I’m working to get that fixed but I’m not exactly sure what’s going on yet. If you want to leave a comment, feel free to do it on chapter 6, Twitter, or Facebook page.
As you can see, I’ve been hard at work preparing something special for you. It’s been a dream of mine to bring Hominids to life in one way or another even if it’s only for 30 seconds. I felt that announcing Book 2 would be the perfect place to do so!
So save the date! Hominids returns January 5th along with yet even more surprises! So help spread the word Hominerds and share with everyone you know.
While working away on Book 1, I received a lovely email from a student at Savannah College of Art and Design. Her instructor, Kit Seaton went to school with me and several months ago she reached out to me asking if I would help her with her Digital Coloring and Lettering. So I sent her some of my ink pages to see what her students came up with. This artist, Higuamota F sent me these lovely colored pages! She told me that she wanted to stay away from seeing any of my color work before starting these so her colors wouldn’t be influenced. It’s really fun for me to see your work through someone else’s eyes. Check it out below and make sure to visit her Tumblr page.
I figured it’s high time I sent you all an update.
First, let just say how excited I am to share this amazing Lye pin-up by Al Fukalek, artist of The Specialist. I met met Al and The Specialists writer, Shawn Gustafson at Denver Comic Con. They’re great guys and I was happy to hear they were fans of Hominids. I also did a pin-up for them and will share that with you all as soon as they make it public. They have some exciting things coming so make sure you follow these guys and show your support.
As for progress on Hominids, Chapter 7, I must admit its been slow. After 6 chapters and nearly 200 pages I needed a small break. That, mixed with several other things I want to do along with the release of Chapter 7 has slowed things down considerably. I did take this week to re-center and get myself back on track. So stay tuned for more updates in the near future.
I meant to post this yesterday but I’ve been sort of out of balance these days without posting each week.
This week I have a beautiful illustration by Erin Middendorf. Here’s her art blog, pottery blog, Facebook, Tumblr and Patreon. Make sure to go follow her. Erin is an amazing artist who I’ve worked with for the last five years at PopCap Games. We’ve worked Emerald City Comic Con together for four years and she’s always the first to sell out. Her pottery work is always in high demand.
This amazing piece of art comes from a friend from work named Tara Mueller. This woman is a rock star of the highest order and I am honored to have a Hominids piece illustrated by her. You will not regret following her! Here, here, and here.
