Crinkled Dailies: Week 2

Last week, I wrapped up an intense project here at the Center for Cartoon Studies. I , along with 5 collaborators were to time travel back to 1966 and create a teen musical comedy that abided by the Comics Code and that would sell like hotcakes, knowing what we 21st century cartoonists knew about the medium.

I had the privilege of working under the invaluable editorial guidance of Steve Bissette with fellow students Simon Reinhardt, Eleri Harris, Ben Evans, Alexis Dexter and Aaron Shrewsbury. It was a doozy of a project, but everyday was a genuine pleasure to work with these folks. Here’s a peek at the cover that we came up with for this 32 page issue of the Nowsills!

I’m really proud of the work that we all churned out.

Right now, I’m trying to ready the files so as to have something that I can send to an offset printer to genuinely print these bad boys in conjunction with my collaborators. Once that’s ready, I’ll certainly have something that will be easily readable online for your perusal, AND something physical for you to purchase.

Given the intensity of the above mentioned Silver Age assignement, you might see some of the stress slip into some panels.

Crinkled Dailies: Week 1

Greetings from the Crinkled Corner.

If you haven’t heard, I’m doing daily comics. 4 panels every day. 

My jumping off point for much of these strips is channelling my love of Pablo Holmberg‘s Eden, Liniers’ Macanudos and Nicholas Gurewitch’s Perry Bible Fellowship. Who knows where they’ll go from there!

You can expect 7 comics posted here everyweek. If you want the convenience of daily updates and you’re a tumblr user, just follow me there. That’s where I initially share these. Hope some of these will make you smile.
