The udder day* I submitted this Tatterhoof piece for Emoorald City Cowmicon’s Moonsters & Dames artbook. I herd back from them and it wasn’t selected (bull if you ask me). I suspect these puns may calf been the reason, but hay what can you do.
*by now this was actually about a year and a calf ago.
**I swear there won’t be this many puns in the actual Tatterhood story.
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.
Since the last time I posted on this blog/outdated website, I’ve uploaded a bunch of comics – all available to read on wealdcomics.com!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 Gruffand not-so-friendly scuba horror tale Low Viz (new pages being uploaded every Wednesday). Dig in and enjoy!
…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!
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… cosplay craftster deviant art dingo games twitpic twitter tumblr
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!
