zinefest & a store

here’s the wave of zines i printed last week on display at the zinefest this past weekend

there’s ‘balloon head man,’ collecting the book i serialized on screentone last year

also, ‘steps volume 1,’ a collection of the first 15 steps strips

and, ‘sh*tty sketches,’ featuring my favorite doodles from 2017 – 2018

(the books feel so good in hand… i didn’t expect that)

and maybe this is burying the lede, but i created a store to sell the copies that i didn’t sell

so if you want one you can get one! i’ll mail it to you! u.s. orders only currently:( since i don’t know what i’m doing

printing zines

printed up some zines for a local zine fest this past weekend

just using my desktop printer

for some reason it doesnt like scooping up cardstock in to the feeder on its own so i have to feed the cardstock in sheet by sheet

each book took about a half hour to print

then i fold them staple them and lay bricks down on the books to flatten them out

loving hilda

we’ve read the first three hilda books by luke pearson so far.

i love their celebration of keeping a sketchbook, reading, coziness, tea and cocoa, and the outdoors.

all of which comes through in the animated series on the netflix.

not only is the animation, music, and voice casting great, but it features an extraordinary color pallete, charismatic character design, and most importantly a lot of heart

peter parker burns the midnight oil

my series of sh•••y drawings continues with peter parker burning the midnight oil

i think i forgot to draw his left arm

is this drawing too sh•••y? can you tell he’s in a dark room looking through a microscope at a sample

well tomorrow’s sh•••y drawing will be better. (though honestly it could be worse.)

onward!

lately i just cant get enough of drawing the spidey doodles

spidey swinging home after a long day of spider-manning

i like to think that his costume is in a constant state of repair. hastily stitched together.

and his webbing, though awesome, is never quite perfect. every batch a little different.

media:

  • a little fountain pen action and some brush pen on top of pencil
  • those crayola markers that kids use but it just soaked up the ink, (not waterproof) and made the whole thing pretty dark
  • spidey’s left foot colored in with an orange and red colored pencils
