I just submitted to IDW for artist or colorist positions. Wish me luck!
The Great Guitarblade Caper is complete!Production on The Redeemers #5 has wrapped! Master storysmith Eric Rampson is finishing up his lettering, and should be sending the files off to our printer early this week, which will give us copies just in time for Indy Pop Con!
Devious Journal EntryThe apocalypse is coming, I'm updating my DA Journal. A lot has happened since... holy cats, May of 2014!? Okay, rapid-firing this thing.
Redeemers #4: Flame War came out, and people really like it! Including Silver Age comic writer, Tony Isabella! More on that in a later bullet point.We're currently working on Redeemers #5: The Great Guitarblade Caper. I'm coming up on halfway through the line art, and this is gonna be a fun one, kids. We're introducing a lot of new characters, and like Flame War before it, Guitarblade Caper has multiple plot threads going on simultaneously, and some great twists and turns along the way. We're hoping to have the issue printed in time for 2016's Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo, but if we miss C2E2, we should definitely have it for Indy Pop Con in June!Speaking of Indy Pop Con, this year was the 2nd time out for that convention, and Lonely Robot Comics (and my) debut at the show. And it was terrific. The Indianapolis conventio
Redeemers #4 and C2E2Well, my submission pace has slowed again, but that's because my writer Eric Rampson and I have kicked production of The Redeemers #4: Flame War into high gear! We're trying to get everything done in time to debut the book at C2E2 in late April. Should be plenty of time, too, as the penciling and inking stage is wrapping up. We've brought in our favorite pinch hitter, Lore :iconsakural: to help with the interior colors, and the beautiful and talented Kaypee :iconthegr8calz: to lend some watercolor love to the cover.
We took a hiatus from the continuity in late 2012/2013 to work on a related side project that'll see the light of day soon (we hope!), but trust me when I tell you that Flame War is easily the strongest Redeemers story so far and will be worth the wait. Without giving too much away, the issue will have A, B, and C plots, one concerning each of the three heroes, but the main story is centered

OVERFLOW BECAUSE I DIDN'T UPDATE THIS JOURNAL QUICK ENOUGH
Where's My WIPs?I've been posting work in progress shots of my artwork a lot on Instagram lately, not so much on DA. It's just easy with the iPhone camera and all. So if you want to see my WIPs or random sketches, follow me on Instragram under "wheretheresawil".
This has been a transparent ploy to gain more Instagram followers.
Special order #BrendelBoards now for $5!I've had a couple of people inquire about getting #BrendelBoards. While I still intend to sell at conventions, I'm now offering a mail order service through Fiverr.com for custom orders! Unlike my usual commission standard, I'll send the one-of-a-kind board off to you, rather than simply a high-resolution JPG! You're getting customized artwork to back your comics, and I get to pay my bills! It's just $5 plus shipping costs! http://fiverr.com/wheretheresawil/create-a-custom-comic-backing-board
Livestreaming NOW!Around 4:00 CST, I'll be livestreaming. Taking $15 color headshot commissions. PayPal on the spot, high-res files emailed upon conclusion of the stream. I'll update this journal when it's time for the stream!
EDIT: Live! Ready for work! http://www.ustream.tv/channel/wtaw
SEE TWO, EH TOO!The Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo is this weekend! I'll be hanging out all weekend with Redeemers writer extraordinaire Eric Rampson at Artists Alley booth Q4. If you're in the area, stop by! Also, the celeb list is pretty legendary this year, so check it out! www.c2e2.com
C2E2 Aftermath and The Redeemers #3 and #4Oo-de-lally, Deviantites. I have been away for a while, at least from Journal-land. Since we last spoke, The Redeemers #3 team finished off issue three just in time for C2E2, and I was able to knock out a few other projects, mostly convention prints.
The Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo went pretty darn well for the Lonely Robot Comics crew. Team Silver Bullet :iconkongspencil: showcased pre-release copies of The Silver Bullet Trade Paperback Vol. 1 from Markosia, and nearly ran out of stock. Grapes' :iconwjgrapes: table gave fans of The Infernal Fyre-Dragon a sneak peek at issue #3, and he of course showed up Brett and I with his sick skills As for The Redeemers, Rampson and I happily debuted issue #3, "Fancult" to the excitement of a surprising number of existing fans! Several people sought us out specifically for a copy The Redeemers #3, and early feedback suggests that people are really enjoying it! I also had the chance to meet two of my favorite TMNT artists, :icone-mann:

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!

Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy

THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LIKE YOU, BEAUTY UNSURPASSED!
GONE WITH A WHISPER, YOU FALL ASLEEP LIKE DEATH,
BREAKING THROUGH THE EARTH, YOUR SMILE SHINES AGAIN!
MY EMPTY GRATITUDE, ANOTHER EMPTY THANK YOU,
I FINALLY LEARNED REGRET, FROM WORDS I'VE ALWAYS SAID.
NEVER MEANT TO SPEAK TO HURT, YET IT HURT TO PUT IN WORDS,
GOODBYE WHEREVER YOU ARE, GOODBYE UNBROKEN HEART.
IN TRUTH I WANT TO FEEL, THE TRUTH I WANT TO SEE,

WHENEVER I BEGIN TO FEEL THE BURNING TEARS OVERFLOWING FROM MY EYES,
I KEEP ON LOOKING FORWARD AT YOU, HOPING THAT YOUR LIGHT WILL NEVER PASS ME BY!
I WONDER WHAT THE STARS THAT SPARKLE IN YOUR EYES ARE HIDING FROM MY MIND,
HIDING FROM MY OPEN HEART AND FROM YOUR OPEN HEART!
TOGETHER, YOU AND I WILL ALWAYS BE ALIVE, CONNECTED, CLOSE TO YOU I'LL STAY!
AS LONG AS I CAN HOLD YOUR HAND AGAIN AND AGAIN, FOREVER, I WILL FIND MY WAY!
YOU MAY NEVER ANSWER BACK MY CALL BUT YOU SMILE AT ME WITH

TLECs 2nd Annual Training Show RESULTS UPSo, this is a wee bit late, please ignore the huge time gap. XD
TLEC has decided to once again, open its gates to the public for another large training show. This time, it was to be run a little differently. Last time was stressful, and thats not the point of a training show. With that being said, they set up the new list of classes and decided on a different judging style. This time, there would be playful classes as well, to make it more family oriented.
- No fighting or harassment, we are an equal opportunity stable
- All breeds may enter, but no unnatural powers may be used to get an advantage
- Judging is simple, both effort and rng for performance (guide will be listed below)
- Linearts, Photomanips, Trades, and Commissions may enter (tracing is allowed, at the very least list you have used a ref)
- Old entries may be submitted, but will receive a penalty for not fitting the setting
- No extra
Hi everyone!I usually hate seeing journals like this, but given that I’ve spent 13 years on this site and met thousands of people, knowing there are at least a few of you who would probably want to hear if something was going on, I figure this is the only way to tell you.
For the past several years I’ve been dealing with health issues that I originally attributed to being overweight and/or having a sedentary lifestyle.
A few months ago, I was dealing with a chronic sinus infection and drainage from hell. To offset my symptoms and maybe get some sleep for once, I went to bed with a breathe-right strip on my nose. I woke up with no nose strip to be found and a weird feeling in my throat, like something was there. I went to the emergency room assuming I had swallowed the strip; they looked in my throat and said they didn’t see any plastic strip, but they did see that my throat (epiglottis, vocal cords etc) was terribly swollen, and because I work at an airport, tuberculosis had to b
