Guess who's got a booth at the second biggest pop-culture show in North America? This guy.
Saying I'm excited doesn't do it justice. Being amongst the biggest and brightest in all the fields I love for 4 days in October is a dream that might not even be eclipsed by my inevitable journey to SDCC. As more details come about, I'll be sure to post them here.
It's up to you...New York, New York.
I posted a design over at threadless last week and it's got 2 days left in the voting. Thought I'd throw the link up here and try to get more votes. It's my fantastic fork image I posted here a few weeks ago. If you could, follow the link and help me get picked. It's not the last design I'm submitting, but it is t-shirt worthy (I think).
Help me out!
Keep being awesome.
I draw a lot. I know how to draw. I can draw...well, anything. However, I am not the best artist ever. BIG SURPRISE I KNOW. Artists by definition are constantly evolving their style, their form and yes, their knowledge. No artist ever stops learning new techniques and tips. We are NOT above criticism. What we ARE above is shitty criticism.
Just yesterday I got called out for poor anatomy on 'Karen' from my 'Super-Girls' series. Now normally I'd run and hide in a closet, tears streaming down my face because someone didn't think my art was technically correct. In this case though, I was baffled. As anyone who follows me here knows, the Super-G
So earlier this week I participated in a contest over at www.toplessrobot.com. It was just an art contest about the site and had to contain 'TR' or 'Topless Robot' in the art. My entry is posted here so go check it out. Having done art for some time and seen a bit of the works being submitted for the contest, I was under the assumption that I would at least be singled out for my work. I was wrong.
See, I neglected to consider the audience and rushed a piece that I thought would get some attention based on my casual attendance on the site. Let me be clear, the work is good. But it's not great or amongst my best work. I am certain this is why
I think I need to weigh in on something that was brought up here months ago, but seems to have come back around in my head. At one point it seemed that DA was removing the art of inking from their submissions list. Now I don't have all the information on this so correct me please as to whether or not it was done. What I offer right now are my own opinions. Like them or hate them, they're mine.
Inking is not art.
If you're an inker and you're reading this, I'm sorry. You're not an artist. Art, by nature, is creation. Artists give birth to ideas, either as original ideas, continuations of other people's ideas or variations of existing themes
