Sketch Cover - Wolverines No 1

Leave a comment... No comments:

Here is my latest sketch cover! This illustration is the first sketch cover to include Charmy, Weaver, Frenchy and Flimp the Chimp. Once again, I created this scene using pen and ink. Once the inked dried, I colored the gray wash using Copic Markers.

This and all of my sketch covers are official releases by the publishing company. They all include the full comic book and are easily stored with the rest of your comic book collection!

I am making some simple cosmetic changes to the website. Hope I don't screw everything up. I am very good at making a complete mess of things.

Watch for all sort of amazing updates in the next few weeks leading up to Space City Comic Con.

If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments below. 

And YES... I will be opening up an online store. I'll be selling autographed posters, prints and original artwork... Yep, you can own an original strip soon for your gallery!!! for a price of course... Bwa ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!

Here is today's strip!

Monday, we had just over 2,000 views! Between this website, GoComics and Social Media, I am getting over 5,000 views per day now!!! That is an incredible number. I cannot thank my readers enough....

Or can I????

In June, I will launch a month-long contest. Three winners will each receive a signed print of their choice from my archive of comic strips. I'll have details posted here soon. It will involve posting comments on my GoComics page. If I am ever going to get syndicated, I need GoComics to see how big my audience has become.

Enjoy today's COMIC STRIP!

Charmy's Army in "Nothing But Trouble"

Leave a comment... No comments:

I apologize for not posting strips in a while. I have been working so hard on the business end of my dream. Every evening I have been writing email after email as I pitch my strip to newspapers across the US. The hard work is NOT paying off though. After only two week I landed my first paper and I believed the future was mine for the taking! Sixty five papers contacted and nearly thirty rejections later, I am feeling whooped!

The worse part is that I have been neglecting my online readers while I tried turning my dream into a business. I will be hitting this hard for three more weeks as I prep for my first Comic Con appearance, but after that is completed, I am going to resume my schedule for my readers. 

I have discovered one thing. Small, weekly papers do not run strips and if they do, they all use local cartoonists only. If you are not a local, you have no chance. The paper that picked me up is distributed in a town an hour away from my house. To them, I am a local.

I refuse to be discouraged. If I never get any more papers than the one I am in, I will still be freaking happy. I may not make a living doing what I love, but I am in print... which is my dream. Not everyone gets to see their comic strip in a newspaper. I count myself Blessed.

Enjoy today's strip and share on social media.
