How Big of a Problem is Harassment at Comic Conventions? Very Big. | Bitch Media -
A survey of 3,600 comics fans and professionals reveals some dark news.
I wrote about the sexual harassment survey I conducted and what it means for comic conventions.
Pertinent reading on the eve of SDCC.
My cover art for the first in a series of superhero romance novels by Carol Strickland, available in print and on Kindle at Amazon.com
Carol was heavily influenced by The Legion of Superheroes, so this is a fun read for Legion fans.
We couldn’t wait any longer so we started our imagecomics SDCC Sale a day before the con even starts!

Anonymous said: Love your work. How do you keep all your drawings so consistent? Is there a program you use to give your drawings a more dynamic effect?
Cheers! I’m glad that you find the work consistent - it’s certainly something I strive for and it’s rewarding to hear that it comes across that way. I think it just boils down to practice and intent. For faces in particular, I kind of view each character as having a different “scaffold” - the parts of the face all fall into place differently depending on the character, and I try to keep that in mind as I draw. Miles’ face is proportioned differently than Ganke’s. It’s much easier on male characters, and I find drawing unique women much more challenging.
As far as programs, there are a few things that photoshop allows me to do - create custom brushes (some for FX, others just to get a more attractive line while drawing) or manipulate objects’ shape and perspective, but it’s not like the program does it *for* me. I wish there was just a “make it look cool” button to press, but like any tool it’s just a matter of learning to use it effectively through hours and hours and hours of practice. And that’s the part that I enjoy - the experimentation, the learning, the creation.
Fun to read an artist break down his craft in this manner.
