I'm currently downloading all of my pieces here, as I will no longer be using dA as a platform for my art. I'll still be on other sites that don't label my work as pornography
YiA9 cover flats by Chainsaw-Munkey
YiA9 cover flats
As I'm watching Straight Outta Dudleyville, I'm also flatting the cover for Youth in Asia issue 9. I will post more updates of the coloring process on the road to the 10th anniversary celebration at Charlie's Comics in May and Phoenix ComiCon June 2-5 in artist alley at table 1016
Loading...
Coloring the cover to YiA9. It's looking good thus far. I'm getting back into my art groove.
Honestly more of a starting statement than a question. It's been ten months since I last posted a journal, but my friend Bix just did her first in a year, I felt it was about time. So here's what's been going on for me:
Issue 9 of Youth in Asia is finished, and ready for the cover to be colored and the interior lettered. Funny thing in fact. I went to go get the pages scanned, cause I don't have a large scale scanner for myself, so I went to FedEx. When I took the pages up to them they asked if I did all the artwork myself. Thinking it was more of them being impressed, I was like, "Yeah, the whole thing's me. Except this pinup by my friend." They told me they couldn't scan the pinup. I was curious as to why, as the characters depicted on it are mine. They said they got busted a little while ago by an artist cause someone scanned their art and the artist of the piece took it to litigation. And as an artist, I get that. So I had to call my friend Test1ne at 8PM on a Friday night to ask him to send an email claiming the piece as his own and allowing me permission to scan it. Fortunately Test answered his phone so we were on point after that.
I also just finished out a successful Kickstarter campaign to collect the first 5 issues of Youth in Asia into a single first volume. So we're going to drop that monster at Phoenix ComiCon this June too.
This past year has been really fucking hard for me. I was forced out of a job I really loved because I make the comic books I make and the company couldn't see the value in backing up one of it's employees if it was found out by the board of directors or the general public. Their perception is that due to my comic's content, I objectify women. That and they mentioned my performance at work, even though that had not been brought into question until I was being asked to weigh my career options. Apparently a lot of the older guard at that company were being put out to pasture. But truth be told, it's for the best. If you don't want me to be a part of your cause, that's your loss. I'm not gonna let them destroy who I am. It's bad enough they made me doubt myself for that night. But I'm not gonna allow anyone to step on who I am. The following months of nearly non stop drinking, lead to a lot of depression. And my mental health has never been near where I like to think I am. It just isn't. And mental illness is nothing to mess with. It's taken me more time than two thirds of my life to realize that. That alone is a scary thought. Mainly because I always thought I was smarter than that.
So, Youth in Asia's tenth anniversary is here. Volume one and issue nine drop at PCC and then it's just putting in more work to continue the dream.
