TRDL Update - 30 September 2017

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 30, 2017, 9:27 AM


So here’s the current state of the state, and the plan for the next quarter or two:
1. I’ve decompressed from the last two conventions in September, and have been one by One getting back to customers who either ordered online or requested follow up stuff for art I didn’t have available at the shows. 
2. Collecting refs and details for a few commissions I’ve taken on through the end of the year.
3. Finishing up inks and colors on a few new pieces that weren’t ready for the September shows but are hot in my forebrain so I have to get them wrapped up and in art print form for the next show.
4. Preparing for the next big production push on the TRDL Sourcebooks. I have four long international trips impending for work, so I make good use of the flight time to work on the production tasks like compositing and page layouts and writing, etc. at this stage, a few weeks before leaving, it’s mostly about making sure I have all of the resources I’ll need offline and ready to go. The goal is to use these trips to get the books print ready. I’d love to have them on the table during spring shows. 
5. Next, a creator-owned project with Kris of deeply dapper that we’ll both have on the table next year. 
6.next stage for TRDL: returning to the sequential art project. 

Fun times to be creative!

Con reports from San Francisco Comic Con and Rose City Comic Con will be live in this month's upcoming Robot-Kraken podcast as soon as it uploads. I've been posting photos of cosplayers and such to our companion Instagram (robotkraken_redtentacle) for those interested.

This year, for Inktober I'll be following, to some degree, Craig Gleason's list for Season of the Bad Guys Club 2. If you do any inktober pieces you want to share, make sure and submit them to the  
jam group.

The TRDL Jam runs weekly but remains open indefinitely. The complete list of jam topics by date can be found here: bit.ly/1QM5XfE
You will find associate links for the platforms of your choice: the R3 Forum, DeviantArt, and FB.

Artist | Professional | Design & Interfaces

I am a designer overall, architect by profession and comic illustrator and concept artist through my own imprint, Third Rail Design Lab. I publish a comic through TRDL that is free to view, and over a pretty extensive library of original characters which include powers and origins, etc as well as a generic RPG stat system for conversion to any game, which are available online and in trade paperback form. I also do commission art and design work for collectors and commercial applications. Lastly, I host a weekly art jam that can be found here: :icontrdl-r3-weeklyjam:
