My Bio
Seth Kumpf is a fan of fun and is lucky enough his two biggest passions, drawing and comics, are chocked full of it. Growing up with and never turning his back from cartoons and comics for all ages, he makes it a primary focus as an illustrator to provide comics and illustrations for people of all ages. That’s not to say he doesn't enjoy and embrace a different tone on occasion.

A graduate from the Columbus College of Art & Design, he seeks out illustration and sequential work while drawing his co-created RAGGED RIDER: TALES OF A COWBOY MUMMY. He is also currently drawing stories for Ed Hawkins' Roninspoon Theater and a comic project for Matt Drake.

Plans for 2012

0 min read
Well, it's been a hectic, what, two months? Closer to three. After some who knows what from a hosting server and domain transfers and whatnot, here I am, safe and sound. Also, after a hectic time, I'm finally slowing down come New Year's Eve. Which means: New things in the new year. First of all, I have artwork. I kept putting off posts because I was a week away from finishing another and "I might as well just upload everything at the same time." So you'll get a big artwork post on the 1st. Then, the goal is to upload something when I have it done. This way, each piece I do creates it's own post and will hopefully bring up thought process, s

With school up again and me getting more finalized illustration work I should be back to posting here. I still am doing a ton of sketches and preliminary work that you are welcome to view on my blog, though. You can also grab some of my opinions on comics there too. Hopefully next Journal entry is a little more substantial but I'm trying to get my sites updated and I've got some comic pages to pencil.

Thanks for the watch, Seth!
Not at all. Like I mention every month, I love Reed Gunther and I love your art. It fits the story and theme great. You're a big inspiration to me. Can't wait to see everywhere you go.
Man, that's awesome to hear. Thanks dude!
Hey man, like yourself I am an aspiring comic book artist/ animator and I am currently working on my first graphic novel, Redmoon and I wanted to ask you something. Do you draw the panels yourself with ruler or do you do them on the computer with something like manga studio because I have been doing them by ruler and have been doing everything handrawn, so do you draw panels with rulers or on the computer?
It depends, really. For all of my Cowboy Mummy stuff I usually draw it out traditionally so I'm all about the rulers. When I take it to digital for inking and/or colouring I'll just stroke over my ruled lines in Photoshop to make them cleaner and more prominent. For smaller projects, such as Static and the like, they usually start digitally so all my panels are done with a ruler.
thanx for the fave man
No problem. It's real sweet.
