New Weekly Comic Site and Moved Blog

The title says nearly everything.

I've started a new weekly web comic site. I'll try to update it every Thursday. It will feature Sydney and a bunch of new never before seen characters .

This also marks the discontinuation of this blog. I've had it since the start of University (3 years ago!), and it's received probably 12 comments in it's long life. This page will remain guiding people to my new site, where any new blogging will take place.

Thanks so much for reading.

Sydney Tribute

David Gale, pictured above, has returned the favour by drawing his own tribute to Sydney! If you're a little confused, please read my tribute one post below and make sure to read his hilarious series of Offal Funnies.

Offal Tribute

Much to my disappointment David Gale decided to discontinue his Offal Funnies comic strip. I spent this afternoon doodling my own tribute to the great, late Offals.

Happy Birthday Pom

The above is a card I drew for an old friend. He recently jumped boats and started playing soccer for Taree instead of his native* Old Bar. I've found it in my heart to forgive him, because he's such a great keeper.

Also, below is some blue construction drawings of Daffy taken from the Great Piggy Bank Robbery. Love this scene.

*Note: I say native, but he is in fact a British expat (hence the nickname).

Constructing Mickey

Here's a cover of a Mickey comic posted by John K. I used it to practice my skills at construction.

Here is my process:
1. Sketch the line of action.
2. Decipher the proportions of the larger forms paying close attention to the negative spaces.
3. Draw the medium forms and smaller details making sure that they wrap around the larger forms.

Here's the comparison. I think it looks pretty good. I've captured the line of action and my large forms sit nicely in place, but it's clear that the bodily parts that extend from the largest forms are not anchored correctly. They sort of float about the body.


PS. This weekend, expect to see some more Sydney on Dumm Comics!
