'Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men'
"X-Men is where continuity goes to die"
www.rachelandmiles.com/xmen/ - Awesome new podcast - just in time for the new movie. Great critique and synopsis of my favourite superhero soap opera! haha - can’t wait for the second ep.
yes! the wrenchies will be here soon.
The unbound printed signatures is Farel Dalrymple’s The Wrenchies.
They print those black marks down the side so they make sure to keep the signatures in order.
(I think they send us these things just to tantalize us — we still have to wait another month for the final book!)
Can’t wait for this!
Inking Dash Shaw Pages
My new Tombow dual brush/nib pen arrived today - I’m using it and sharpies to ink my pages from the Dash Shaw class at SAW.. on my ghetto DIY light-table. Learned about these pens at the workshop - I really love the firm brush!
Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008. It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there. It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them. A larger work gets talked about from time to time. It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories. Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
Love this new sketch series by Kate Beaton of her experiences working in the Alberta Tar Sands. - great read. This is a nice change from her normal subject matter - definitely hits close to home. it’s interesting to see this perspective, there aren’t many stories of people working in Fort McMurray.
