Posters for thesis

I wanted to make a few posters to go along with my comic book, so they could be displayed in the gallery, and I think people tend to ignore your work if you don't have something on the wall. Or if it's not a sculpture. Books I feel get overlooked. So I made a couple of posters, my friend Jon came up with these wonderful taglines for the comic. They just have a great 70s movie poster vibe, and it's awesome.

march 26 crit

Not sure if we still have to do these.

However, I did get critiqued on Friday, it seemed like people liked what I'm doing, I just need to figure out the presentation. I was at work and discussing it later, and the idea of possibly drawing a splash page on the wall was brought up, and I could have the book presented in front of it, printed out in a large format. Which I think might be pretty cool. Going to have to think about it. I'm getting closer to finishing the first act of my book which is exciting.

More Sketches

Sketches 1, 2 & 3: These ones are regarding the possible final shootout of the book.
Sketches 4 & 5: These two are some sketches, feeling out the way the final fight of Part 1 is going to work, I want it to be a really brutal struggle. These aren't quite there yet...

Note: All of the following sketches were most likely drawn during my art history class. (my excuse for the mediocrity)


In short order.
Sketch 1: Idea for the first page, Jake's getting shot. Clearly.
Sketch 2: Prelim for the first page of the book.
Sketch 3: Some cover layouts, none of them were used. Yet.
Sketch 4: Another cover layout, unused.

A Collection of Sketches

This one's a cover 'idea' and the other is just...a drawing, of Jake, smoking with empty shots next to him, outrageously clever.

Updated Comic

I have added the cover, and made edits to a few of the spreads, as well as added a new page, the other one should be up later tonight, along with a summary of the story. Also, I didn't care much for the blood splatter stuff on the cover, so I removed it. UPDATE: Changed the title to: Alone. Larry at work suggested it, and I thought it was a good idea.

Last Friday's Crit.

So, that was helpful. It's got me thinking about a few different directions and ideas. Primarily it brought up the idea of getting more to the core of what I want to do, I think...
Victor brought up the idea of focusing on the cover, and maybe making the pieces be a series of covers, since, whoever is critiquing the show, most likely won't want to sit down and read through an entire book...which, makes sense...
Now I just need to solidify the direction I plan on taking.

We'll see how it goes.

I liked seeing what everyone else in the crit group was up to, it seemed to be a pretty eclectic mix of work, which is nice.

That's the website I made for my web authoring class, it's in regards to my comic, so I thought it's related.
