WEBCOMICS RAMPAGE!

Posted in Conventions, Diary, Sketch with tags , , , , on 12 December, 11 by cantocomics

This weekend at Dragon’s Lair Comics and Fantasy in beautiful Austin was the third annual Webcomics Rampage mini convention!

It was a great little show–a wide selection of webcomickers showed up to hawk their wares and hold panel discussions in the back room. The one pictured above was a general-interest discussion, kept lively primarily by the witty banter of Joel Watson of Hijinks Ensue (5th from R), Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content (house left of Joel), and R.K. Milholland of Something Positive(blocked by a blond giant). It was pretty inspiring to hear these folks talk about their work and how devoted they are to their craft. It was a bit of a kick in the pants for ol’ Carl, who hasn’t really been working as hard as he could be on this whole comics thing. To be remedied.

Thanks to all the great cartoonists who came out in addition to those linked above: Josh Lesnick of Girly and Slipshine (Dr. Voluptua is even sexier in print), Bill Williams of Lone Star Press and Side-Chicks, David Willis of Shortpacked! and Dumbing of Age (Sorry if I drew your head weird, dude), Rob DenBlyker of Cyanide and Happiness, Danielle Corsetto of Girls with Slingshots, and Nicholas Gurewitch of Perry Bible Fellowship (Sorry I didn’t draw you in there, I couldn’t see you. I know you look like Jesus or Charles Manson, though).

I’ll post solo images of these folks on the tumblr later today. Stay warm, amigos.

In addition to figuring out how to color in photoshop, I started a tumblr.

Also, I moved to Austin, TX. Probably you knew that.

A woman walking a child on a leash:

The leash looked like a stuffed animal, which was perplexing for a variety of reasons. Did the manufacturers of this product  want to  lull the child into forgetting the fact that it’s being treated like a pet?  Ease the eventual emotional trauma with soft fuzzy embraces?

Also, while I was working at my day job (housekeeping for a local installment of a national chain hotel), my supervisor found this note:

My supervisor asked me to draw part of this, so I did:

Putting my MFA to good use, to be sure.

There are literally 13 days until I move back to Texas. I aims to update this here blogamajig  at least  two more times before that happens. Here’s hoping I can actually manage that.

Not real sure where this came fromClick to make this more legible.

Later today: A sumi-e sketch, maybe a doodle or two, brain leavings as the month of June begins to wind down.
