New strip is up on my horror/comedy webcomic Against Stupidity!
New strip is up, a few hours early on accident! (If you aren’t reading my comic Against Stupidity, you should be–you can start here at the introduction.)
In the course of my duties writing & drawing strips for my webcomic Against Stupidity, I needed some paintings for a hallway that might show the progression of the seasons. So I made them of some tarot cards, inspired by the Rider-Waite deck. That particular deck is associated with Hermeticism and Hermetic Qabalah, the wellspring of much of the symbolism and whatnot you’ll be seeing relating to Grandma Clarita, if you decide to read the comic.
Anyway, I decided to make some individual images for the cards, so, here you go!
Share and enjoy, as they say.
I’m pleased to announce the launch of my new public project, a webcomic named Against Stupidity. From the summary:
Meet Jesse Grunwald.
He just finished two years at community college in Santa Fe. In a fortuitous coincidence, earlier this year, he got offered a four-year scholarship at a Denver university and inherited his grandmother’s estate–a vintage victorian right by the lake in south Denver. Now it’s fall, and he’s moving in. He’s prepared to balance the quadruple demands of keeping up his GPA, holding down a job, making new friends, and keeping repairs up on the undoubtedly shitty car he’s about to buy. Unbeknownst to him, he’ll have to add two more demands–taking care of grandma’s pets, and holding up his magical karmic duties as the only grandchild of the powerful witch Clarita Grunwald.
I hope you’ll join and follow his adventures. Here’s the cover for Chapter 1, Over The River and Through The Woods:
A little over a month ago my wonderful mother got me a drawing tablet for my birthday, and since then I’ve been brushing up on my skills and working on a new webcomic. More on that some other time!
The comic’s main character lives near a park with a lake, so I’ve started doing some work on that front since it’s been a while since I’ve drawn outdoorsy stuff. (In ‘analog’ painting, trees are, in fact, my nemesis.)
So I was tooling around the Internet trying to find information on how to draw a tree. There’s a lot of good stuff out there! And a lot of bad stuff. But I was surprised, I guess, to find so many talented artists writing up freely available tutorials. This wasn’t something you would’ve found when I was last seriously Doing Art in my teens and early 20s.
I say I guess I was surprised because lots of people are doing lots of high-quality hobbyist writing out there nowadays. Some folks write about areas of interest, some folks write about a their profession, the lucky ones find little gap between the two. So of course there’s going to be a lot of good content about drawing. It just wasn’t something that I had available to me when I was younger, and I’m jealous of people who do. Which is stupid, since obviously I have access to this as well, but I’m not slightly younger than myself, so, jealousy. Being human is hilarious.
