I'm Sure He'd Prefer To Be Called Dave...

3개월 전


Following last night's post in which I previewed some work in progress from "I Thought It Would Be Zombies..." and lamented on the perils of zooming and perfectionism; I kicked back and did a bit of reading. The latest issue of ImagineFX was available for download on my iPad, and I was excited to browse it as this month is one of their fairly regular comic book focused issues! Yay! That makes it a good night.

Lo' and behold, roundabout page 20 there was a little article examining the pressures and pitfalls of artistic perfectionism! As I slept last night I must have processed it in my sleep. Processed it so throughly that any knowledge gleaned from it passed completely from my thoughts! Because tonight I sat right back down at the drafting table and over the course of 2 hours laboriously struggled with a few more tiny figures on the page!

But... I'm pretty happy with the results so far. I'm really enjoying working with my main characters interacting. After all, I love comics because they are an excellent medium for storytelling... not just pretty pictures.

As "I Thought It Would Be Zombies..." resident mysterious ass kicking dryad, Julie, does her thing; she urges Sarah to get Bleedy McBleederson.... ahem I mean Dave clear of the fray.

I hope these characters are piquing your interest and urging you to follow along with the creation of this independent comic book! If they are, be sure to follow me, @bryan-imhoff and check out the official Fundition Campaign to help support the publication of "I Thought It Would Be Zombies..." and its debut this fall at the Baltimore Comic Con.

Art is such a hard place to try and feel the day to day 'satisfaction' of a more tangible 'job' so I get this @bryan-imhoff it's not like an office job or being a doctor there is so much grey vague area in the act of being an artist that we can teeter between satisfaction and frustration with what we should be doing better/faster/more often/ etc.

Your subconscious does not want to let go of the comic, so you sleep with the comic too.
Many times we want to do something and that something keeps us in it for longer than we would like, as other times it can be more acil, it's something weird.
Being an artist is a little difficult in a certain sense is something serious.
