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.”)
A short little horror-ish story, Bait, is up over on Weald Comics to read!
I’d love to say “hey I’ll be updating my website soon”, get rid of posts, update the portfolio, links, etc etc…buuuuuut I know I won’t be doing any of that. Not for a while yet! I’m not even going to think about it until at least after May – well after Creative Ink and TCAF and VanCAF and catching up on some sleep.
In the meantime I’ll just make the odd post once or twice every year or so…and direct any and all lovely viewers to:
Weald Comics (for comicy goodness)
Instructables (for costume tutorials)
Dingo Games (now on Steam!)
…why exactly do I have this site/blog, I never update it…
This weekend, I’ll be at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, where I’ll have THIS:
The first chapter of my story, brought to you by the first issue of Weald Comics! You can grab it at TCAF or VanCAF, or read it for FREE over on Weald! Where there are lots of other really great free comics!
…really need to redo all this…hmmm
My final (and favorite) piece for the Vancouver Comic Jam Art Show! This is just a snippet of it – the full panel has some gore and a bit of nudity in it, so be warned; this is not one for the kids or the nanas of the world. It shows Tatterhood fighting a variety of (mean) trolls (and while not all trolls are mean or evil, these ones most definitely are). The full image can be seen here, and the process of the piece can be seen here. This is a scene that could hypothetically be in my hypothetical graphic novel should I ever hypothetically get working on it.
The show is still on at The Wallflower and for those unable to attend, I’m continuing to update my list/links of other artists’ panels.
At this point and time, my site is now going to be on hiatus as I redesign (yay!) and reprogram (aargh) everything, so hopefully I’ll be back in a few months. In the meantime, I will still be creating, crafting, costuming and comicing, elsewhere on the web. In fact, you can find me on…
I will likely sneak back in if there’s any important game news to write about. And true, while I have been quite absent before for long periods of time, at least this time its planned!
The Vancouver Comic Jam opening night was a big hit, thanks to everyone who came out! If you couldn’t attend, it’ll be at The Wallflower throughout April so drop on by. And if your lack of attendance was due to distance issues, well, in the post below i have (an updated) list of other comicers art that you can view!
The Three Musketeers
This piece is one of mine that is currently being displayed (I have two up – I’m really really happy with the ones the VCJ headguys chose!) – it features my 2nd most favorite line that Dumas ever wrote. Here’s the progress of the painting, where you can see, despite a couple of practice runs, I almost ruined this in peeling off the masking-fluid.
