I just got a sketch of Kage from Kevin Eastman in my book! Scan coming soon!
I’m off to Furry Fiesta! This year’s theme is Beyond Thunderdome for all of you post-apocalyptic fans out there, and I hope you are, because that’s what this comic is about after all, this would a good con to attend.
Two furries enter, one furry leaves!
Well 2012 is here and conventions are abound! Frolicing in the convention meadows of…. well.. whatever type of meadows they frolic in….
This years line up should be quite interesting as I’ve added another con to the list. Right here in good ol’ Austin! So without further ado, here they are in chronological order:
|Feburary 24-26th||Furry Fiesta||Dallas, TX|
|March 3-4th||STAPLE!||Austin, TX|
|June 1-3rd||A-Kon||Dallas, TX|
|June 14-17th||Anthrocon||Pittsburgh, PA|
Look forward to seeing you all there!
The page was blacked out recently over the SOPA and PIPA bills, and while I usually do not like to post political agenda on this site, I felt this was both significant enough and relevant enough to mention. I prefer to keep most of these types opinions to my personal page. (Which has been dormant for sometime unfortunately.)
I don’t have anything against companies wanting to make money. Far from it in fact, I love making money myself, but the MPAA and RIAA seem unwilling to do what most smart companies do. That smart thing to do is change, their business models are no longer suited to our world. They claim loose money left and right on “piracy”, saying it starves their artists, but some clever accounting on their part is more often to blame.
As an independent artist I long ago realized I can’t stop people from stealing my drawings that I post on the web. It wouldn’t matter how hard I tried, someone will find a way around the protections. But you know what, I don’t make any money off of those images anyway. The only money I make when doing art is when people commission me for private pieces at the conventions I go to.
The MPAA and RIAA could find new and suitable models where they could continue to make money, but they instead want everyone else to conform to their outdated business models. And this time they intend to do so by the censoring of the internet. Do not let these companies trample on our Freedom of Speech! No one should be able to remove your voice without due process!
The blackout page provides a plethora of details about these bills and what you can do to contact your representatives to make sure your opinions are heard on the mater.
The first script for the revamp of the comic is in! I have reviewed it, the author has reviewed it, as have a few other people. This script is a whopping 32 pages long, so it should keep me occupied for a while yet.
This week I’m moving to a new apartment but I plan to start drawing on this thing as soon as I get settled into the new place.
For those who want to read the old comic, don’t fret, they will still be available for viewing.
