It’s been a pretty busy week for me but here are the sketch dailies from this week.
There’s a lot of Space Boy stuff amongst these sketches as I’ve been trying to work out a few concepts for some upcoming stuff. I will be doing a convention in Windsor on July 5th so I’m going to try to have a few new cool things available.
Album suggestion this week is Two Tongues (Self titled). Two Tongues is a super group with members of Say Anything and Saves the Day, and it’s a good time.
If you didn’t get a chance to catch last Sunday’s podcast it was on TCAF and there will be a new episode up tonight as well. www.comics-that-exist.com/podcast
So hopefully everybody has a good week and we’ll meet back here next week for some good drawing adventure stuff.
You can follow me at these places:
and of course at the mothership
I wanted to let everybody know that I will be doing a couple cons in August so if you are in Windsor ON on August 17th swing by the Summer Comic Con and Fan Expo in Toronto ON August 28-31. I will be boothing alone for the Windsor con but will be sharing a booth with Kris Auger during Fan Expo, so be sure to swing by and check out some of our new cool stuff. Also the temporary hiatus on Super Space Boy Adventures will soon end and there will be a ton of new stuff for everybody (Physical copies of chapter 2 at the Windsor Con?). Aside from new prints I will also have some new zines which I’m pretty excited about, I’ll post more info when I figure out a printing method.
Also Super Space Boy Adventures has started updating weekly on my Deviantart page, if that’s more your pace http://rokusho1345.deviantart.com/. It moves a lot slower on there (1 page a week) and it will never catch up to www.comics-that-exist.com so it’s up to you where you want to read it, I may also start the same thing on Tumblr.
Since the last update of this blog a lot of cool stuff has happened, including but not limited to TAAFI (Toronto Animation Arts Festival International) which is a great festival to check out if you’re an animator or someone interested in the industry. There were a ton of very interesting and informative panels and awesome workshops. I was able to do a workshop on Storyboarding hosted by Natasha Allegri, Steve Wolfhard, and Vera Brosgol, which was an awesome time. Animation is pretty cool. If you’re an animator you should definitely come next year!
I guess that’s all I have to say this time, here are some doodles!
Have a good weekend everybody!
Hopefully you’ve all been enjoying Space Boy so far, if you haven’t started reading yet, now is the perfect time! www.comics-that-exist.com
Digital copies of Super Space Boy Adventures Chapter 1 are now available on Gumroad! Yay! https://gumroad.com/l/NcMHR
And remember if you feel like paying for shipping you can get your hands on physical copies at https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/JamesMarontateArt or if you’re in the Windsor area you can pick up a copy at Paper Heroes.
Hopefully you’re all liking the comic so far, and I’ll keep you posted on all the new and exciting news as it happens on here.
This Sunday (Dec 15th) I will be at the Toronto Comicon hanging out at booth A46, if you’re in the area you should absolutely swing by and check out the cool stuff I’ll have.
I’ll have some cool prints for sale as well as copies of Super Space Boy Adventures Book 1 (My new comic wooo!) and copies of my Inktober zine. (I also still have a few copies of the Space Boy Deluxe edition for any of you die-hards out there).
I want to thank everyone who came out to visit my booth at the Windsor Christmas Comic Con! It was a great turnout and I got to meet some pretty cool people. I debuted some cool new products like a zine compiling the 31 pieces I completed for Inktober, as well as the first chapter of my new comic Super Space Boy Adventures.
The quality of the books turned out really well and I was happy with them.
I also created a limited series of prints to commemorate the release of Chapter 1 of Super Space Boy Adventures, so that was pretty exciting for me.
Space Boy will be starting online with 3 pages a week on January 1st, 2013, and http://www.comics-that-exist.com. But if you’re interested in picking up a physical copy you can hunt me down at a con (Toronto Comic Con December 15th) or wait till I figure out a online store situation. I am also looking into making digital copies available, more information on this will come when I have it all worked out.
Thank you again for everyone who came by and checked out my work, I really appreciate it, and if you picked up a copy of Space Boy let me know what you thought!
