Whew! What’s happening this week! The Baggy Wrinkle is going nuclear or something. I don’t know what’s going on, but I’m hoping we’ll find out next week. I hope everyone had a great time at Boston Comic Con. I’m writing this the week before, so I have no idea how it went, but I’ll be posting a blog update soon. Hopefully I took pictures.
I figured I’d give it a go and draw Nibbles from my pal, Chris Gugliotti’s comic. Nibbles is from the online web comic start Chris and his side kick dog Nibbles. Chris is also the other half of what we like to call Titans of Cartoonitude.
Things have been very busy in the studio. I just wrapped up two more comics for LEGO and did some design work for a few companies. Hoping to start thumbnailing the next installment of Robotic Madness soon. I’ll try and set a date soon to launch the new pages. It will definitely be after summer. Looking forward to seeing people at Comiconn and Boston Comic Con as well as New York Comic Con. I’m still debating on purchasing a table for Rhode Island Comic Con. See you next Wednesday!
Today on Whatever I Want To Sketch Wednesday, I bring you a LEGO stud drawing tutorial. I assume a lot of you are reading the Chima comics in LEGO Club. The last 7-10 pages were all drawn by me! Who knew? Now you do!
After much thought, I have made the difficult decision of suspending Robotic Madness until the fall. I plan on introducing new pages in September. Due to tight deadlines with my increasing freelance work, I’ve found I cannot spend the time on the art that I would like to. And rather than rush my art, I have chosen to plan out the last half of the story and work on it over the summer. I will also be doing ComicConn, Boston Comic Con, New York Comic Con and Rhode Island Comic Con. That’s a lot for a stay at home dad with four kids to do. So! I hope you forgive me. Please keep dropping by for blog updates and Whatever I Want To Draw Wednesday. Make sure you sign up for LEGO Club Magazine, because I’ll have a comic in it just about every month now. Thanks to my small group of readers and thank you for being patient.
Sorry for skipping out on this weeks Star Wars Droid Series, but it’s for two good reasons. The first reason is that, Joe Caramagna is in the process of printing the Wyatt Earp prints that I designed as an incentive for his Kickstarter. I didn’t really design it, so much as I made a tribute cover of the awesome cover designed by artist Scott Koblish. Anyway! The second reason is that I’m swamped! I’m working hard on next weeks Robotic Madness because the weekend brings us… you guessed it!!! Boston Comic Con!
The Titans of Cartoonitude ( Chris Gugliotti and myself) will be in Artist Alley ( table #AA213 ). We’ll be drawing for folks, selling prints, art, chatting and all the good stuff that comes along with conventions. This will be our third convention together touring as the Titans. We seem to be building a decent fan base and are getting really excited that people are enjoying the artwork that we want to do. You have no idea how exciting that is. So, hopefully I will see a lot of you on Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully I’ll meet people that read Robotic Madness that I never knew about. We’ll see! That’s the great part about working in this field. Stay tuned for brand new art for Robotic Madness and the droid series. Thank you everyone!
8D8 was one of my favorite droid action figures when I was younger. I think it was because of all the detail sculpted into his gears, legs and head. It was a lot of detail for the time. I also had fun folding him in half and pretending he could ski on hit legs. Good time. His glowing eyes always scared me in the film. He looked mean.
