Family Man update!

Page 103 of Family Man now online!

Whew. Just under the line, there. Well, it's on time for West Coast time anyway. Sorry East Coast and Europe, your academic intrigue is slightly late!

Anyway, that's about it for the scholastic yakkity yak. Soon there will be more girls and foreshadowing!

--


As previously mentioned, I'll be at the Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland, OR this weekend! Oh, how I will be there.

Not only will I be tabling, I'll also be moderating the Periscope Studio panel and participating in the Comic Art Battle. Also giving away Family Man postcards, selling some pendants (if I can scrape up the time to make some!), t-shirts, sketches, minicomics, and just generally running around like a crazy person. Come say hi!


Also, I drew some shoes.

Because.

I'm not ashamed to say that your updates are one of the highlights of my week. No shit.

I would have to second this, actually. :)

Seeing as you have the good taste to poste using a Hornblower icon featuring Ioan Gruffudd and Jamie Bamber, I can only be touched.

I had no idea you were a Hornblower fan! Awesome!

Jamie Bamber is going to be at a con in Seattle next month, and I plan on asking him whether Archie is (a) gay for Horatio, or (b) TOTALLY gay for Horatio.


I feel he will have to be impressed with my intellectual discernment.

That is indeed most impressing intellect. *nodnod*

I wonder how many times he's been asked that in the past?

you'll have to tell us what he says!

I suspect that he will sigh. With a British accent.

Oh, Luther in the final panel is wonderful! :D Also, I love these shoes. Are they going to be appearing on characters? Because the dress that would go with them looks lovely in my head. :)

I wish I could go to Stumptown! It always sounds like so much fun when you guys report on it.

Sure, these were originally little costume study doodles, so I'm sure they'll turn up!

Only without the patterning, because I'm only SO crazy.

Whoot! I love clothes!

And yeah, the patterning on an entire dress is a little insane. They are awfully attractive though...

Family Man! I am in constant awe of your artistic talents and the in-depth historical research. It is amazing.

Also, on a completely (but not altogether) random note, is there any chance that Bite Me! will ever be a graphic novel? I'd love to buy it, if it was.

I'm planning on having all of Bite Me! scanned by June 15th, so I can do touch-ups and start laying it out for print! THE TIME HAS COME! :)

Huzzah! Something to look forward to- besides the actual 'summer break' thing. Which completely pales in comparison.

YUSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I take it I can obtain a copy even though I'm in the antipodean state of New Zealand??

Sure thing! I would rather fill out a customs shipping form than have them sit around my house gathering dust.

I'll probably be taking pre-orders this autumn to help defray the printing cost. :)

Ooh! Do let us know! I would love my very own copy, and my family would love me to have one too, as then I would stop hogging the computer when I am in the mood for a re-read. ^_^

Also, please let us know if you make more shrinky-dink Luthers? I was so mad last time that I didn't buy one while it was still up. >_< Curse you, time zone difference!

Yay!

Here, have some more pretty shoes.

Nice shoes! Are those patterns yours, or are you just on a shoe-design kick?

Six of one, half dozen of another.

Pretty, pretty shoes...^_^

I love the look on Luther's face of mingled awe, disgust, and disbelief.
Hail, Caesar!

Is it a nice break from the library to do these backgrounds, or do you like the scads of books better?
quirkybird
Apr. 21st, 2008 01:08 pm (UTC)
Ha! Hoo...I don't know - every setting I do, I'm like "Mannnnn I can't wait to move on to Setting X!" ;)

Now you've seen a few of the sets for the University, and I'm going to have to start redrawing environments, which is annoying, because you can't just bluff your way through it. You have to use your own reference!

'You have to use your own reference'

ooohh yeah, I know exactly what you mean. I hated doing backgrounds that I'd already shown, because it means you can no longer toss in a random window or door to fill in space.
("Uh, isn't this room in the corner of the house?" "...yes." "Then why does it have windows on all four sides? And why did the bed suddenly change into bunks?" *stares at page* "...uh...it was your imagination?")
yup, that sucks. ^_^

Believe me, the next scene I do in the library that requires an image of the main gallery?

I WILL CRY.

this is where you just do a shot from the same angle, scribble out the previous Luther/Luciens, and draw in new ones. *g* We'll never tell, we promise!

Curses upon you. Because of you shoe drawings, not only do I now need/want to step up my "make a 1790s outfit" plans, but I'm going to have to learn how to make or modify shoes so I can make some like that. Thanks goodness for labricoleuse!

Regarding today's comic: "Ave!" :D

Wow, it was quite a surprise to see this update. A pleasant one really. That last panel was a hoot; oh, Luther, what have you gotten yourself into?

And did I spy a blurb on Bite Me! in print? Because that, along with Gunnerkrigg Court in print makes me excited. So I'll have to spread the word to my friends who are fans as well. So we can be the invisible chorus of support. XD

Yeah, I'm sure you'll soon hear me whining about my messing pen technique as an 18 year-old!

Haha, oh dear. But at least we'll know the project is aliiiive!

I love the historical accuracy in your comic. I think I look forward to when you update your notes way too much. I was like, "Yay! French garden designs!"
