You can all weep openly for I shall not be attending D-con this year to sell my wares. Its a shame as my prices were going to be insane and I had started producing ACEO cards already. oh well. next year. ACEOS shall be on my etsy page.
Smut or no SmutDrawing some LOL originals for etsy store and debating whether to stray a bit more into the risque side. Nothing pornographic but definately verging on NSFW. Stick with canon or draw more skin? Opinions!
Etsy shop now open!I have opened up a little etsy shop to sell on my surplus art from cons, a few choice pieces and my comics.
Also this will be the interface for commisions of ACEOS and other arts. So keep an eye on it and expect to see more stuff there soon!
Post DOJ-ConWell Doj-con is done and in some senses it was a great success and in others, less so.
The artwork sold brilliantly well though there are still some unsold cards up for grabs for those interested.
The problem with the con is that I completely overestimated the number of comics I would sell! So I printed FAAAAARRRR to many. I have something like 70 comics left over. Oh well! live and learn I guess. They will keep for next time perhaps, I dont think I will re-print them on account of people already having bought them the previous year.
Onto more projects I guess. looking at perhaps doing some magic card alters.
2013happy new year all! couple of service announcements. First of all my comic has changed site to : http://cascadefailurecomic.tumblr.com/
For those of you who haven't checked in a while there are 11 (Wow) comics up concerning my trip over to E3 last year. I have quite a few more planned and I will update as / when I can. Lots of other stuff on the boiler.
Not least of which is DOJ con in dundee. I will be doing some rather lovely ACEO cards for this years con, mostly concerning popular attractive women from popular games, comics and manga. Stay tuned to see them. As well as selling my usual comics.
D-con 2011Wow shit I barely write in this thing.
I have been so busy since mid november its unreal. I have been really bad with the comic and despite having over ten strips written I havnt had the time to do them at all!
Now as busy as ever but I need to get things together and make an effort for D-con 2011 which is less than a month away! eek!
So this year there will be two books (second book will be a little bigger) probably those dreaded prints again. and Sketches! thats right I will be offering pre-done mini sketches and bigger sketches for sale. As well as commissions. So if you are going and want any particular characters drawn, let me know
This weekends conHi all,
D-con was a great success! We sold out of books early doors and generally had an awesome time! I will certainly be doing this con again next year!
This weekend I will be appearing at the UK Webcomic THING, in london. http://www.ukwebcomixthing.co.uk/
This is a webcomic themed event and turn out is usually fantastic giving you the chance to meet some of the people involved in your favourite webcomics. I will be selling two comics, the savantguarde prints and also selling little postcard sketches of various Comic book, video and cartoon characters. These are all cheesecake sketches btw (I want them to sell) I will scan them all and post them up tonight!
Back on Track: 2010 news and titbitsa belated happy new year to all! It seems like high time I updated my journal so just to keep everyone up to date on whats going on!
Cascade Failure, my webcomic has restarted since september and is still going strong with little or no interuptions! I re-vamped the format slightly into a 3 panel format with slightly revised (faster) art pipeline process so its all good! having great fun with the comic again and its great to be back up and running!
Conventions: This year (as in 2007) I will be making an appearance at the UK WEBCOMIC THING! in London in march. The last time we went to this it was a blast and we sold all the cascade failure books we brought! This year I will bring even more product to try to meet the cackling demands of the ammassed hoards! Also I will have a table at "D-con" which is a dundee anime / art / comic convention in early march so it should be a good even and will allow me to try out some o

UK WEB and MINI COMIX THING! - Post MortemWell i'm not long back from London and I must say that the thing was a roaring success!
First of all a breakdown of the operation. I went down with 30 comics (which were A5 booklets each containing about 30 comics + other stuff), two different free leaflets for people to get a taste of the comic and around 20 prints (of the type now available through Deviantart).
I didnt plan to take so many prints but there was a mistake at the print shop so what the hell!
I also took 4 sketchbooks of the comic so people could peruse them and see how the magic happened. In addition the major eye candy for the stand was an LCD monitor and my laptop/tablet. I figured that this would enable me to show the comic process as well as draw peoples attention to the stand with some moving images.
The most important thing I brought were two helpers in the form of Steve and Dave (Also characters from the comic) Who helped me man the tiny stand and Generally keep me alive wi

A quick update on my absenceHello DAers!
My long absence due to multiple projects (and teaching, and graduate school) is probably a month away from coming to an end. I apologies for those who sent me IMs and didn't hear back, sometimes for months. If there is a rush it's almost always better to contact me through my website contact form, as I'll see that right away.
Also, I should have lots of fun skeletals to show off in the coming months (and years) thanks in part to the work I put in over the last 9 months. I look forward to chatting with you all again in a few weeks!

Cinematic Composition and FramingI have recently started to dive into cinematic composition & framing to try to add more depth to my images.
I thought it would be kinda cool to explain my thought process with my recent image. "Lily's Favorite Bar"
Step 1) Get the basic idea figured out.
My friend, the commissioner and I agreed on the concept of Ash being the bartender serving an eager Lily and disgusted Willow.
Step 2) Find out who the main focus should be in the shot.
I wanted Ash to be showing off her villainous personality and be in control of the situation but not the main focus. So Ash was used as a framing device for the real stars of the image.
Step 3) Add Subtle clues to help give the audience a better understanding of the characters and where to look.
Making Ash larger helped portray her control over the situation. But not the main focus as she is looking off to the side to help guide your attention to what she is i
