Prinsen af Persien, Owner’s Manual for Your New Surrogate Unit and The Metamorphosis

Three things that have very little to do with each other.

Except they’re all comics and I’ve read them.

Do you have any place where you still actively sell any of your Strangers stickers/a place where you are selling any Bad Neko stickers (I missed out on the kickstarter)?

atrocityland:

Wrong Neko stickers can be purchased here at the moment - this is the last chance you’ll have to get them for a while, though, as 13Crowns won’t be publishing them anymore, so I’ve been left looking for a new way to distribute them (and hopefully will be moving forward in that regard). I hope that my current goals will be successful, though- and I have around 25-30 new neko designs drawn up for whenever the series continues. Here’s a sneak peek, in case you’re interested (these are actually not the 100% finished designs, but the work files are on my desktop, so you’ll have to forgive any small missing details):

Otherwise, I don’t sell any Strangers things at the moment, but, I’m hoping that this can change in the future; I’m still working on the manuscript for the book, which has been slow going, but has been moving along (I even worked on it a bit today, in fact). Right now I’ve been quite busy with a lot of personal projects but don’t necessarily have a lot I can share so, huge apologies there. But, thank you so much for your interest in my work, and for the note! It means so much to me!

I was quite sad to hear 13Crowns would stop selling the Wrong Neko stickers after this print runs out, so it’s good to hear they might show up again somewhere else. I have a certain fondness of these guys.

I particularly like the “red weed” cat in the preview image. Middle cat below the “glow cat”. The color combination on that one’s terrific I think.

The Incredibles: Secrets & Lies and Truth & Consequences

Some times I have good reasons to read things.

Other times I just want to indulge myself with something fun and simple.

I still read things, but this one was from a while ago.

I just completely forgot to mention it.

Have you ever considered creating a deck of tarot cards?

Anonymous

evilsupplyco:

It is tempting, but we have a strict non-association policy with all religions.

Some quick research shows that tarot cards were simply an early form of playing cards and only got a “mystic” or “occult” connotation later on. They aren’t really connected to any specific religion. They’re simply a tool for divination, any given set can have more or less religious symbolism depending on who’s made them. I have seen dragon, cat and unicorn themed ones just to make a quick example. None of those seem very connected to religions of any kind.

Not to say that you should make a set if you don’t want to, but what good is a librarian who doesn’t even try to fact check?

On My Mind

The phone rang just after Carlos left. Cecil reached out and answered it, looking out the window at the sky. It was mostly void, with a few specks of perfectly ordinary non-glowing clouds and stars peeking through. It wasn’t  that late, maybe it’d clear up. “You guys are so cute,” a familiar balaclava-muffled voice greeted him.

Cecil smiled and raised a hand to give a lazy wave. “Hi Alex. Taking a break?”

“Just keeping myself occupied.”

“Boring day then?”

“If it weren’t for you two, the most exciting thing that’s happened would be Mrs. Johnson’s botched bloodstone circle shenanigans,” Alex sighed. “Third time this week, you’d think they’d listen to you and not buy the cheap ones, but nooo.”

“That’s illegal these days though,” Cecil said in a tone of voice that very much suggested his opinions about the recent changes in rules, gods, smiling and any combinations thereof.

Alex laughed. “So’s a lot of things, but you know how people are.”

Cecil shrugged, overplaying enough for it to be clear through the window he’d kept closed to keep out the creeping chill. “Nobody’s perfect, we’re all a product of our mistakes. I’m glad I could help though.”

“Yeah, you’re a lifesaver. So, what do you think of Carlos lately?

The shift in Cecil’s tone from politely interested to enthused wasn’t just audible, he had always had a body language that was pretty easy to read. “He’s been great! There’s been a few minor things, he’s not literally perfect, but I’m learning to accept him for what he is. And he likes to cook these lovely..”

A soft chuckle interrupted Cecil just as he was getting warmed up. “That’s good to hear. We were a bit worried we’d gotten the dosage wrong. We weren’t really prepared since we’d hoped you’d do your thing so it wasn’t necessary, but you can’t get lucky every time…”

Cecil frowned. “My thing?” he asked, clearly puzzled.

Alex was quiet for a moment, then answered cautiously. “You know, make him fit in…”

“Oh,” Cecil said cheerfully. “I’ve been giving him a few reminders. He’s been getting a lot better at checking the community calendar. Unlike some people I could name if I was in a spiteful mood. You hear that Steve Carlsburg?. I’m not naming you.”

“Mmm,” Alex just answered back “We know. You’re doing good.”

Cecil snapped back and cleared his throat thoughtfully. “Was that all?”

“Yep, just checking up.” he heard before the hollow click and eerie static of a free line followed.


Cecil sat down and opened the memo he’s been working on for the last couple of months with a frown. The words on the small screen met him with their usual silent accusing and occasional vague filckering.

People who’ve messed with Carlos’ mind:

  • The Sheriff’s Secret Police

  • Station Management, old

  • The Man in the Tan Jacket

  • Station Management, new (find proof)


He hesitated, then added another point.

  • Myself (?)

A couple of Aztec Neon signs flickering on and off. 
I decided to experiment with some very simple animation based on this image and another one I haven’t posted (yet). You’ll have to imagine the slightly singed smell and buzzing from the signs.

Some of you may remember the robot octopus I painted in ink a little while back. Today I decided to use him for a digital coloring experiment.

First I worked on a “multiply” layer to bulk up the values and establish an overhead light source for the foreground. Then I laid in color using layers set to “color” and a final “screen” layer. Near the end of working on this I felt like the blue interface in the foreground didn’t pull into the warm light very well so I shifted it to amber and made some other tweaks to the temperature of the spotlight.

Overall a fun experiment, I’ll definitely be trying it out more in the future.

Seeing the “process shots” is pretty neat. And I always did like that robot octopus. It strikes me as something that’d be a fun design for maintenance bots of some kind.
