Post-Con Time

So, WonderCon for 2014 has finally come to a close. Got back to the grind yesterday after a long, tiring, but good convention. It was good to see and hear all the great ideas and tips for things, great to hear some of my favorite creators talk about things and to learn more about some new folks. (Kelly Sue DeConnick! Katie Cook! Marv Wolfman! Alex Sinclair! Nei Ruffino! Edgar Delgado! All the guys from Aspen Comics!) Some excellent artwork was also procured. (Including a limited edition print of the cover to Aspen Comics' Bubblegun #2 by the ever excellent J. Scott Campbell!) Overall, it was a great weekend. I don't think I did as much networking as I did last year, but that is what it is.

Hopefully I can get things moving forward in the world of artstuffs too. I did do something last night that I hadn't done for a while. I sat down and actually did some sketching for some ideas on a re-imaging of the part of Beyond Neverwonder that I've already posted to the site. And miraculously, it looked pretty decent. I guess it happens some times. I just hope I can keep myself going. It's soooooo easy to be lazy, especially after tiring days at your "day job."

At some point, I'd love to find someone that is looking for a colorist too so that I can get my hands dirty on some sequential stuff. I've got lots of cover-ish type stuff and pin up-ish things, but having an actual story to do again (The last time I did sequential coloring was Elfquest in 2001... 13 years!), that would be excellent! I know little to no one will be looking here, but if anyone knows about anyone that's looking for a colorist that would like my style, I'm open to any suggestions. I even work cheap! (My other artistic friends tell me that I put the "free" in freelance.) Just a thought there too. Yeah.

Trying to Get Back into the Groove

Hey all! Tim here. Just dropping a note here as I try to get some stuff going again here on the AtomicFoxtail side of things. Here's a few of the things that are going on right now:

I'm working on a potential redrawing of the initial part of Beyond Neverwonder. I'm hoping to expand on a few things that will hopefully help the storyline a bit as well as add some better artwork for some of the early pages. I'll probably work on tweaking some of better looking pages and do some general clean-up on things. I'm going to try to get it into more of a book-ish form so it can be published properly in tangible form.

I'm also preparing for WonderCon Anaheim here in a few weeks. Looking forward to all the fun and goodness that goes along with a convention. I had a great time with all the great panels last year, so I'l hoping to get some more good information on the creator's side of things again this year. I'm sure the con won't disappoint.

Beyond that, it's all just trying to get things going again. I've got a few personal coloring projects that I'm in the middle of (and really want to finish) and I'm trying to get my artist space at home functioning properly again. Slow progress there. I did pick up a new lightbox last week (my birthday gift to myself), so I'm going in a good direction. I really just need to get back into the habit of drawing on a more regular basis. I like to slack when it comes to practice, so it's something that I need to do better on. Heaven knows that I could use the practice.

Printing Beyond Neverwonder

We're at the end of Chapter 2 of Beyond Neverwonder. With that, I'm looking into getting some printed versions of what has been produced so far. I'm not sure if that's going to be one or two issues, but I'm in the process of converting all the web-sized files into print-sized files. When I initially started, I never thought that there could be a relatively cheap way of printing the thing, but now, 6 years later, there are some pretty good options there. Fortunately converting all the stuff over isn't that big of a process. The only page that I didn't have a high resolution version of was WAY back with page 1. All the rest I have high-res versions of all the artwork. I'm doing a bit of re-typesetting too since I changed fonts somewhere in the middle (still using wonderful Blambot fonts though). It's looking like the books will cost around $4-5 to make, so that's not too bad a thing.

Of course, I have no idea if anyone out there is going to want to pay for them, but it'll be a good exercise in marketing. As soon as I have that ready, I'll pass more info on.
