Paper tests with a tech pen

I decided to do a quick paper test for a new comic I'm working on. I was going to go with Bristol board as the drawing substrate and thought I'd give it a quick test.

After updating this blog from awcomix to anthonywoodward at the end of 2014 I have made the decision to go back to the original awcomix. After all the original is usually the best.*

End of Year Wrap Up 2015

Image
It's been a weird year for me personally but luckily I have been able to continue my drawing practice. Two major achievements this year for me, were the release of two new comics George Bloop This was a comic I started in 2013, but never completed. I resolved to not only finish it but add extra pages and expand the story. While it was not technically my first piece of writing fiction, it did feel like my first attempt at a longer story, coming in at just under 20 pages. Imagined Mysteries : A Tribute to Leonard Nimoy I felt inspired to write this after hearing about the passing of Nimoy. Being a Star Trek fan from my early teens I felt I had something to say about Nimoy's portrayal of Spock and our current political climate.

New comic! Imagined Mysteries

‘Imagined Mysteries’   By Anthony Woodward.  My new comic is out and you can download it for free from the Caravan of Comics website run by Andrew Fulton. This comic explores my thoughts and feelings after the passing of Leonard Nimoy earlier in the year. I immediately felt inspired to try and explain what Nimoy’s portrayal of the TV character Spock meant to me and how I felt he fit into the cultural landscape. The comic itself was a different direction for me from what I have done before and the work I plan to do in future, but it was this weird little ball of inspiration that had to come out. After finishing this story, I sat on it for a while, because I just didn’t know where it sat, was it worth saying, and what do I know anyway… Ultimately I’m proud of how it turned out and I think it says something important about our collective subconscious and about the importance and danger of the human imagination Grab yourself a copy here

Learning to be who you are

Last week I had one of those gob smacking revelations about my art practice. Something so simple, yet it had eluded me for years.

I've struggled with productivity over the years. At some stages I have had superhuman productivity and at other times super slug levels of activity.
