Not much time for comic making these days.
Testing out some new hardware… could a Kitchen Bros. Comic Book Video Blog be in our near future?
Press Release from Cerebus TV:
CerebusTV this Friday at 10pm ET / 7pm PT: A quick look at Xeric award winning cartoonist Gary Scott Beatty’s innovative 64-page INDIE COMICS MAGAZINE — where each contributor buys space and then shares equally in all revenues from sales through Diamond Comic Distributors. A great lead-in to “The Case of the Anunnaki Artifact”, Mike Kitchen’s contribution to INDIE COMICS MAGAZINE No. 2 with voice-over by the Kitchen Family Players voicing their own characters — Mike Kitchen as SPY GUY, Erika Kitchen as Erica Korczak, Anika Kitchen as Katie Whips, Raina Kitchen as Two Gun Tiny, Erikson Kitchen as Super Shooter and special guest Dave Sim as both Dr. Golem and the Aliens. Taped last December 20. CEREBUS TV editor Dave Fisher– who will be getting a lump of coal in his stocking this Christmas — sincerely apologies for switching the names of Anika and Raina’s characters in the credits.
To watch this episode, click on over to CerebusTV.com and chose your streaming video to view via your internet browser.
The show begins this Friday at 10:00 pm and will be streaming live on a cycle until next Friday at 10:00 pm.
Don’t miss it!
ALSO: CEREBUS TV SPECIAL!
While the episode is airing, you can get INDIE COMICS MAGAZINE #2 signed by all the contributing Kitchen Family Members for the cover price of $6.49 (plus shipping). I’ll take it one step further and number them as the CerebusTV Edition. They’re now available for purchase in the Ultraist Studios Store.
Stephen Bissette quote:
“Neil EARNED where he is, and did so (he told me, and has told others) by never deviating from the path that led to WRITING FULL TIME. Luck and breaks have a lot to do with it, but Neil worked the markets, conventions, and opportunities, and reaped the whirlwind (in a good way), making many sacrifices along the way.” *
Also, Neil Gaiman on piracy:
On Page 15 of SPY GUY #2 I had a very clear image in my head of what is supposed to be happening. Though try as I might, I hadn’t been able to get the image on to the paper. It’s a slightly skewed perspective of Spy Guy shooting stuff up with his Uzi. My 11 x 17 roughs were scribbled out back in August, but this panel wasn’t quite working Something about the pose was wonky. Yesterday I grabbed some reference images off the net and attempted to figure out the pose by drawing different thumbnails, but sketch after sketch the pose still wasn’t working, as you can see from the drawings below.
Well, when this happens, it’s time to pull out the camera and act out the exact action for photo reference. And this morning, that’s exactly what I did.
The final frame I decided on was screen captured and flipped (as Spy Guy is ambidextrious with a gun, and I’m not).
Spy Guy is a funny character in that his proportions make certain poses difficult to capture, but I’m pretty sure this one will work for the story I’m telling. You can let me know how successful I was once the page is finally completed.
Here’s part 2 (of 3).
