The Line it is Drawn

The Line it is Drawn

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.

Best music of 2013

Best music of 2013

James Burbanker of the Fiddleback asked me what my favorite albums of the year were. I wasn't really sure because I didn't listen to a lot of new music this year. However some things really peaked my interest. By far my favorite album of the year was a gem that was released a few years ago.

The film inhibits a grim world and that relentless terror that permeates the film maybe it's greatest weakness. What makes Evil Dead 2 really sing is that knowing wink to the audience.

Finally made it back to finish reading the strips. great story! But I still want more!
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.
