100th post!

I figured it would be more dramatic, but it's not even an art post but an info post. Kinda lame I know... but there's big news involved... kinda...

Transpose Operator now has it's own comic site. For now the blog is still the main base of operations, but to read actual content this site will be much easier and looks pretty nice actually.

This comic hosting site has a built in blog for each web-comic that you post. So depending on how well I end up doing there I may remove the current blog in favor of the one combined with the site. We'll just have to see.

Also, my brother has started a webcomic, you should check it out :)
It's basically about him and his friends. Never thought I'd see the day when he'd have a tablet.
As usual it will have a permanent spot in the links list.

New page on Transpose Operator. I am going to be posting weekly updates on Mondays and Fridays (for realz this time guys...), so check for new comic pages. Gotta start working on a website... I keep saying that but... I NEED to get it done, preferably sooner rather than later.

Also I've been going through Meggido and have been cutting and simplifying things greatly. I still need to finalize a few big decisions and re-write the outline before I can be sure of the storyline now. Not committing to anything at this point though.
Will let you know for sure when I orginize the anthology info and send out an email to all interested parties. Been late on getting this done for various reasons that I won't get into now, but there will be a formal announcement when the time is right.

So here's a poll question for anyone reading:
Should the Anthology have a seperate blog?


I know that having to post your work in two seperate places can be confusing and possibly too much work. I don't want to cause a headache on this. I'll be using the Meggido story for my submission, so I could just post all updates here? But even if I put up links to other's pages and such will people actually check(Not a whole lot of traffic here afterall...)? I just don't know, so you guys let me know what you think. Hopefully I can have a descision on it made in time for the info email.

The closing of the Formal Art Blog

So there was no reason to have the "Formal Art Blog", pretty sure no one knows of it's exsistance, that and I don't update very often. The original idea was to have an online portfolio of sorts... but let's face it... blogspot is not the place to do that... something like that is much better suited to a website.
But in order to preserve the few posts I did have. I'll be copy-pasting them here so those that didn't see them will have a chance to look, and I can keep them for my records.
They go from earliest to latest--->

Portrait of someone you hate

For digital illustration we were given the assignment of creating a portrait of someone that we hate. While honestly I don't really dislike anyone enough to hate them, I'm not too fond of Paris Hilton, so that was who I chose.
Both were done in illustrator.


Historical Fiction 6 Pages

I had thought up quite a large story for a what was supposed to be a simple project so I just did a six page excerpt from it.
To kind of lead you into what the story is about so you're not completely confused: it's set in a fictional 1930's America where Vampire's are basically living "with" humans. Different clans an factions exist among the vampires, but the leading human organizations aren't governmental based like you would expect, instead the different Gangster families are leading in terms of power.
The main character Hayden was saved by an elderly vampire when he was young and lived with him until the old man died, but his death was not a natural one. The one responsible for the old Vampire's death is a very powerful vampire by the name of Georgiano. Hayden leaves on a journey to take down Georgiano and finds friends along the way, gradually building a team that will take down Georgiano once they find him. At this point in the story, only Glenn and Charlotte have been gathered, each for their own reasons, but they all share the common goal of wanting to destroy Georgiano.

"Place" Cover Image


This is an image from the cover of a mini-comic that I made. It's strictly pencil and ink. I had been meaning to post it here for quite some time but thought that I had lost the image. Luckly I found it so that I could put it up here.

And that's the end! Hope you enjoyed looking at some different stuff that you may have passed by.

And we're back!

You may or may not of noticed that I've neglected this blog the past month or so *nervous laughter* Well I could make excuses and such but really, it was a kind of post-graduation slump... I'm not entirely out of it yet, but I think that if I keep working on things it will get better with time. Or at least I hope so.

Here's some sketches that I've been meaning to post.
