I’m so happy to announce that One Android Stories: Deep waters AND Tide Lines are available now on your iPhone or iPad. Just 99 cents! They are being made available through the amazing indie comics app Emanata!
So I’m gonna start sounding like a salesman here but I just can’t help myself. Emanata is a great service for comics lovers and comics makers alike. The app is free, and the comics are cheap or free, and most of the proceeds go to the creators. I think this is a great little system, such a good place to find the most indie of indie comics out there! So if you’ve got an iPad or and iPhone be sure to check it out.
Also “From the Clouds” and “People of Corn” should be available there soon.
My artwork which premiered in Jesse Lonergan’s art book Robots is now available as a limited edition digital print. These prints are 12″ x 15″ and fit comfortably in an 11″ x 14″ frame or mat. Each print is numbered and signed, there are and will only ever be 12 of them available. I’m selling them on Etsy, or you can get them directly via paypal below. Or if you happen to be going to MECAF in a week and a half (May 20) I’ll have them there as well. Woowoo! Below is a little blurb I wrote about the piece which didn’t appear in Robots due to space restraints.
No one knows for sure when and where “One Android” was constructed, or who constructed him. There are some who even speculate that One Android wasn’t built in a traditional fashion. All we do know is that he has the tendency to gravitate toward large and typically ornery beings of one kind or another. Case in point, meet Megabotcopter. Part robot, part copter, Megabotcopter is indeed one of a kind. There have been a few forays into robot/copter hybrid design in the past, a few intrepid souls who dared crossed these streams of engineering bravado, but never has such a conglomeration been braved at quite this scale. No-one is sure who built this monstrosity or even why it was built, perhaps Megabotcopter was made to do battle with irradiated beasts from beneath the ocean, perhaps to punch other giant robots in the nose, perhaps simply to befriend lonely nerdy ten year old boys, we may never know. Sightings of this engineering marvel have declined in recent years, but it’s still out there, walking, talking, flying short distances and towering over almost every robot and copter it encounters.
So I’ve got some new artwork that is going to be appearing in an mini-comic style art book being put together by my friend Jesse Lonergan. The book is all about robots robots and more robots. How cool is that! I don’t have a list of contributors or links to give you yet, but I will pass along that information when it get’s closer to the release date. When Jesse told me about the project he referenced my One Android character and all the copters I’ve been drawing lately so I thought hey, why not do both. This is the result. The original image was inked in pen and colored in photoshop. The book is printed in greyscale so I stuck with tonal grays when “coloring” the image. But I decided to spice it up with a limited color palette here. It’s likely that I’ll be doing a limited edition digital printing of this piece. 12″ x 16″. So keep your eyes out for that update if you are interested.
One Android Stories: Tide Lines is now available on Etsy.
Or if you live in the Boston area you can pick it up at a variety of comics sellers. If you’re at a store and you don’t see it, let them know, and let me know and we’ll remedy that situation immediately!
I made this poster in preparation for MECAF this coming weekend! I am really really excited about going, and a bit nervous too. This will be my first time with my own table at this kind of event, and wanted to have something that might draw passersby in. So POW, worked my tucas off this weekend to get this done. So far I’ll have these posters, the One Android mini, the foldy comic, and a handful of art-prints ready to go. Who knows, maybe I’ll find some time this week to crank out something else new. If you are going let me know and lets be sure to touch base. If you are in or near Portland Maine on the 22nd and want to go to a super fun comics event check it out!
