I started a vlog on youtube to follow the progress on my graphic novel project. Why? You may ask. Well first of all, I have enjoyed making videos in the past. Also I think it will be a good way help me step out of my comfort zone and open up more. Being a naturally introverted person makes this a bit of a big deal for me. Although I’m confident that I can make it work. Finally, the last reason is that youtube is just one more way to get my art out into the world.
My graphic novel “The Pod” is the story of a soldier who is recruited by his father to commune with the gods to find an answer to their planets’ dying sun. Of course all hell breaks loose after that. As for the art, I plan on inking each page and the painting over them in acrylic. I want it to look like the painted comics of the 70’s, kind of like the work of Moebius or Richard Corben.
There are three episodes up already and hopefully many more to come. At the moment I am aiming for one episode a week but I don’t have a set schedule yet. I hope everyone will check it out, thanks.
