I do not read Notes or Comments here. The FAQ and biography cover all the useful links.
Are you REALLY Ian Flynn? The Sonic comic guy?
Yes I am. You can check out my website and my body of work at www.BumbleKing.com
Awesome! I love your art in the comics!
That's flattering - but I don't do the art. I'm the writer. I compose the manuscripts the art team uses to produce the book. I've done concept art, though. Some you can find here on dA, some you can find in the graphic novel collections. I'm a decent doodler, but I leave the REAL art to the skilled professionals.
I want your job!
How do I break into the business?
That's better. When I was trying to break into the biz, there wasn't any guide. In an effort to give back to the fan community a little bit, I've compiled a FAQ to help aspiring fans. You can find it on BumbleKing.com.
Read my fan-fic! Look at my fan-art! Use my fan-concept!
No, nope, nuh-uh. This would open me up to allegations of intellectual theft. There's a lot of really creative fans out there, and they produce a lot of cool stuff. What if I accidentally re-used someone else's idea down the road? Some folks would be flattered, others would be enraged I "stole" from them. For my protection - and to protect the fandom - I limit any fan-material to fan-art of official characters.
I want to talk to you!
I wish I could keep in touch with everyone, but I really don't have the time. Your best bet is to try to catch me on Twitter (@IanFlynnBKC).
So... why are you on dA then?
Mostly to keep up with old friends, some artists I like, and to share some concept art from time to rare time.
I love the comics! I share them with my friends on dA!
The enthusiasm is appreciated, but you're breaking the law. People have to buy the books to get the content. Putting up scans loses the publisher money. So if you've got full scans up, I'd appreciate you taking them down. (Not like I can do anything about it, but still...)
I HATE you.
Sorry to hear that. Say what you will, but keep it civil. If you decide to be vulgar and/or profane, I'm hiding your comment. It'll stay there - you'll know I'll have read it - but I won't force other people to endure your foul language.
Are we going to see _______?
I’m not going to be spoiling anything about any of my projects. If you want to ask me something, please direct it to the Q&A portion of my podcast, the BumbleKast. www.patreon.com/BumbleKast
