The Cash

I’ve recently began working on my first graphic novel. It’s a very different format for someone used to doing mini-comics and comic strips as it requires waiting until you’ve done over a hundred pages of art before you get any reader feedback. So I’ve decided to release a limited run of each chapter as a mini-comic (the first of which I just finished) in hopes of getting an idea whether or not this thing is going to have an audience.

It’s a story set in the late 1800’s in my hometown of Dayton, Ohio and centers around two brothers, John and Frank Patterson, struggling with the decision of what they are going to make of themselves. This first chapter depicts the beginnings of their journey as it is wrought with risks and pitfalls. This is indeed a true story that I’ve found fascinating for awhile and felt it worthy of taking the time to share with others who may not be familiar.

This first chapter (titled The Purchase) is a 22 page black and white comic with a color cover and a sticker price of $4 (postpaid in the United States). Originally I had planned on debuting it at Appleseed Con, but it looks like it will be sometime in June. If you’d like to pre-order a copy you can send payment to the address at the bottom of this page or to my paypal account which is veggiedogsaturn@gmail.com

Below is a sample page from the first chapter depicting the Patterson brothers’ frustration after realizing the business they just purchased isn’t as solid as they were led to believe.

Revolve

Starting with the current issue of Telephone (issue 7) my comic strip ‘Revolve’ will be printed in their comics section. Although I’ve drawn lots of comic books in the last few years I haven’t tried drawing a comic strip since I was a teenager and I’m really excited to tackle this format again. This one will appear exclusively in Telephone so be sure to give it a look.

In addition to being awesome, Telephone is free and available at most questionable establishments in the Dayton area and beyond (everywhere from Springboro to Tipp City). You can also read the entire magazine online here so even if you don’t live in the area┬áthere’s no reason not to check it out. Thanks to Kerry Brown and Juliet Fromholt for getting me involved!

Beards of Charity

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

This is a piece of artwork done by yours truly for the Beards of Charity event coming up this Saturday November 13th right here in beautiful Dayton, Ohio. The Gem City Gentlemen of the Gilded Beard are hosting this competition/festival of the facial hair variety to benefit the Family and Friends of the Stillwater Center. If you’re going to be in the Dayton area this weekend (I’m assuming pretty much everyone who is reading this is from Dayton) then click here for more information. It’ll be a blast and it’s for a good cause.
