A new addition to mindy indy is a new page just for the finished pages of AER HEAD! There's a link that says "AER HEAD" on the upper right corner of this webpage. Click it and you'll see all the pages in order, instead of having to skim through old posts backwards. Yeah... I know it's still the same 5 pages. But know that I'm making progress! In other news, the New York Comic Con is coming up in 2 weeks! I'll be there trying to get more coloring work and learning more about self publishing. I think I need to self publish AER HEAD first, then once people see it, other publishers may want to pick it up. I need to keep my rights though. That's super important, because too many artists sell out their dreams to big companies and the artist gets nothing in the end. My boss (Kyle Baker) keeps mentioning the Super Man creators. Near the end of their lives, they were homeless while Super Man was known as the most popular comic character, making movies and lots of money for other people. I've learned so much, not only by being his assistant, but just by being around Kyle because he tells me lots of history about the comic business and about his own experiences.
In other OTHER news, I started taking a "Figure Drawing for Graphic Novelists" class at the School of Visual Arts. It's taught by Tom Motley, and I'm learning so much! At first I was apprehensive about taking this class in the middle of drawing AER HEAD, because I didn't want to feel compelled to redraw the whole thing again after I got better and realized all the old drawings sucked. But I brought some of my comic pages to class and Tom recommended some tweaks, but I wouldn't have to change the whole positions of characters (so far).
So lots going on over here! Stay tuned.
