My idea for a graphic novel, based on Norse mythology, Scandinavian fairy tales, & a big spoon, grew into years of researching, writing, sketching, training, travelling, thumbnailing, drawing, inking & colouring. Read, enjoy, like and share this magnum opus. I will have free limited edition signed copies available at the Vancouver Comics Arts Festival in May.
…pretty sure only my mom will get this. probably because she is very familiar with the original tale and the one I’m still working on…
Since the last time I posted on this blog/outdated website, I’ve uploaded a bunch of comics – all available to read on wealdcomics.com! There’s two stories featuring the spoon-swinging heroine Tatterhood – Trolls and a ‘newly’ shaded rendition of Ch.9 from Tatterhood - plus some Sidequests and personal autobiographical comics too… along with the colourful family-friendly goat story Gruff and not-so-friendly scuba horror tale Low Viz (new pages being uploaded every Wednesday). Dig in and enjoy!
Egads it’s the LAST day of Emerald City Comicon! We are down to our final four Sidequests, so if you want tales of dark woods and dangerous women (and one swanky goat), grab one now before they’re gone forever…until they eventually make their way online at the Weald Comics site.
This weekend I’m at Emerald City Comicon – with a brand new (and final!!) version of Corpse Door! Rachel Kahn and I are at Artist Alley Table T11 with uncanny comics filled with swords, spirits and spoons. Trolls, Weald, Sidequests, and lotsof other tales are there! So if you’re in Seattle, come on up – way up!
My new comic is debuting at TCAF this weekend, May 14-15, at the Toronto Reference Library! (and you bet it’ll be at VanCAF too, May 21-22!) There’ll be other new stuff there too, which hopefully I’ll remember to post about during the ‘caf weeks’ – or follow the Weald Tumblr to stay up to date!
During the Viking Age, various types of trolls lived alongside humans – and one troll tracker knows all about them (maybe). This comic-guidebook-of-sorts provides a look into the world of trolls, from the powerful Jötnar, to the stubborn Gildigífr, to the foul, foul Brunnmigi. Just remember to read all the presented information with a grain of salt – after all, this is ‘An Incomplete and Likely Inaccurate Bestiarum Vocambulum About Trolls According to Totra Þórgríma Hrímhildrsdóttir, Otherwise Known as Tatterhood’.
As I continue on working on stuff for Creative Ink and TCAF and VanCAF (which everybody should attend in May if they are in BC or Ontario) I’ve uploaded Bite to Weald Comics for your viewing pleasure! (It’s another short horror comic – this one inspired by those “horrible teeth dreams.”)
