adammartienwaterreus: A big folder full of some beautiful single page comics from Andrew White arrived today. Out in the wild! US orders should be arriving in the next few days.
Title pages from each of the five stories in Black Pillars Issue One. Available for preorder here. The comic is completely finished and going to print very soon. I am excited for people to read it.
Another review, or set of notes, this time on Backyard by Sam Alden. Order a print copy here, or read it online here. – I like the format. This comic is nearly square and quite small at 4" x 5". 26 pages. I think the size of the comic matches the size/scope of the story. A sparse, focused format […]

Just works really well. A very appealing package. – I read […]
Pleased with this series from Comics Workbook, so I’m putting it together as one post. For each of the ‘variation’ sets I’ve done like this, I draw the abstract color layer first and try not to think about any kind of story. Then make comics to fit it. It’s a fun/interesting challenge.
A redrawn page from the first volume of Taiyo Matsumoto’s Number Five. I made a few mistakes in reproducing this one, got lazy in places, but Matsumoto’s ink style is really fun to replicate. Anyways, look at this layout. Look at the way the angle of the black hole and the shape of that first […]
Another redraw…the final page of Blutch’s Vitesse Moderne. His loose and fluid brushwork is really difficult to imitate, especially because I’m pretty sure I drew smaller than he draws his originals.
This is the first story in Black Pillars Issue One, a 48 page comic that I drew over the past several months. It ‘officially debuts’ at SPX in September, but it is available for preorder now.
