It's my great privilege to be accepted into CBR's "The Line it is Drawn". Every week I get to draw a new piece based on the suggestions of fans.

It was a very weird experience joining the group. The night before Brian Cronin posted an open call for "The Line" I thought to myself, "How does one join the Line is Drawn?" When I saw that they were taking applications I figured it might not hurt to ask about my work. After sending Brian a link to my DeviantArt page I got an encouraging email from Brian suggesting that I go ahead and create a new piece to apply for position.

So I came up with the Conan meets Heman illustration and sent it along. I was having a busy month and I wasn't even sure if it would be worth the time to create the artwork. I thought at the very least there would be some resell value in it if I wasn't accepted. Knowing the quality of the artwork produced I imagined the competition would be fierce. To my shock and surprise I received the following message "Hey David, Welcome, you got picked!" two days before Christmas. It was a real gift and it was an amazing high being accepted as professional peer for the first time in my life.

Every week is a challenge. It's a blast seeing the new artwork created by the "Liners" every Friday morning. It's like Christmas every week! They encourage me to produce the best work I can possibly create and that is a good thing!

i'm working on finishing Straw Man #11 right now. I'm going at a snails pace but I'm getting some pages actually done. My goal is to be done with it around spring of 2018. I have a cool follow up story with pepe in the works for the stirps but first things first.

Nice! What has it been like to use  Indy Planet for digital comics?

I don't know. I don't typically buy digital comics (none as of yet) so I'm not sure what the quality is as far as reader goes. From a creators point of view you just submit the pdf that you would use for print purposes.
