Mini Comic Challenge

Here's an invitation to join me in a challenge: Write and draw 12 pages of comics in three months (from June 7th to Sept 7th) At the end of three months print in A6 mini comic format The rules above are really the only two rules I will set as such. Some suggestions however could be: Keep it simple, eg, B&W printing Add a cover to your 12 pages, eg a 16 page mini comic containing 12 pages of actual comics Try to make a coherent story rather than just a collection of snippets or doodles Participants can encourage each other and maybe even launch their books togther Participants Ive Sorocuk Matthew H T Emery  Ian McMurray  David C Mahler  Leonie Brialey  Neale Blanden Andrei Buters  Josh McCrimmon Adi Firth Sarah Firth Tom Edwards I have also set up this Mini Comic Challenge Community over at Google+, if you have a google account you can join the community and post progress notes and or images

New Drawing Adventures

Recently I've been experimenting with various drawing techniques for my comics, whilst it has mostly been fun, it has also kind of been driving me crazy. At the same time it is for a reason, I want to write a comic and draw it... Sounds simple right, and perhaps it's not that unusual from what I've been doing for almost 15 years now. But I want to make something a bit more substantial, I want to make something a bit more solid and lasting, a longer narrative so to speak. To achieve this I have to settle on a drawing technique that I can depend on to express what I want to say but at the same time not take me forever just to get a simple page done. My previous drawing techniques, whilst they have served me well, I don't believe they will serve me well for the scale and type of work I wish to make. I'm a big believer that comics should be produced in a non laborious way, not to say that artists shouldn't take time and care with their work, but each panel shoul
