I just finished a poster class at risd. one of the three final classes i need in order to have all the credits for my certificate. Taking a letterpress class right now and then one more. Maybe a professional Identity?
Went through piles of work and found a stash of about 16-20 unfinished comic pages and a bunch of other stuff. Planning some new design for the site in the about and landing page, as well as some new navigation. Stayed up late and finished a couple of pages last night over the course of the next few weeks will update all the comic pages. This should make it so that I have a decent preamble for a couple of stories. Started putting school work up on behance/risd site. Photographing some actual professional work to put up. I might also be teaching a class about zombies to kids in the spring!
Been reading a lot of Usagi Yojimbo. It’s like a master class in making good comics. Pretty much every aspect of that book is well thought out and masterfully executed. The amount of research is staggering and meticulous. The artwork, while it started very solid, becomes more lyrical as the series progresses. Stan Sakai has an very intuitive grasp of what to show and what not to, reading flow, composition, and line. He has also won Eisners for his lettering.
Off to work. Will post some pics tonight.
