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!
The 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 hav
Well, 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 ~SakuraL (https://www.deviantart.com/sakural) 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
I need help, please, guys! My day job doesn't pay worth crap, and I'm struggling to keep my head above water over here. I'm offering 6 single-character, full color, full body commissions for $25, half off my usual rate! Mailed cash, check, and PayPal are all accepted. Here are some examples of previously done pieces in this vein:

4) Wendy M. (Made a special deal on this one for something more complicated)
5) GeorgieBoysAxe (Completed, unreleased)
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.
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
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
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
Oo-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 !kongspencil (https://www.deviantart.com/kongspencil) 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
Intrepid Audio Productions is giving away a complete set of Redeemers #1-#3! If you haven't snagged your copies of one and two yet, here's your chance! You can help spread the word about the contest by reblogging it on Tumblr, http://wheretheresawil.tumblr.com/post/20136383278/detailed-contest-rules-here , and you can find all the contest details at http://beyondtheheadset.co/2012/03/29/the-redeemers-contest/
So, believe it or not, I have friends! Friends who are also artists! You should follow these clowns. And commission them for things.
CRUNK! !WhiteCrunk (https://www.deviantart.com/whitecrunk)
If you've followed me since the heyday of Chaos Diamonds 3, you've heard of this guy. Crunk was my college roommate, and now he's one of my post-college roommates. Guy's become a damn fine illustrator over the last couple of years. You should check out his stuff!

Then there's my friend Mark, better known to us as Tuba. He's got some good comic-style sensibilities, and having just graduated college, could use some w
I'm not dead! I promise! Been working on pages for The Redeemers #5, might dump some #4 pages on here soon, and I've been doing a lot of artwork for my wedding- decorations, invites, stuff like that. That stuff will probably wind up on here eventuall...
