Printing, Signing, Cutting, Bagging, Inbetweening and Onward
March 25th, 2013
The Saga of Rex is progressing very nicely. I've had some problems with my hand using my Cintiq, so I added an Intuos5 Wacom Tablet to my arsenal and everything is back in order. For those interested, I go into this in a lot more details on The Saga of Rex Production Blog.
While keeping an intense schedule working on the film, we are also keeping up with shipping rewards to our Kickstarter backers. We spent the weekend printing, signing, cutting and bagging prints. Those rewards will be going out this week. We're getting closer and closer to having all the rewards shipped (except for the delivery of the film, which is going to be in production until October), and it feels good to see the light at the end of the tunnel as far as that's concerned.
Now, back to work, I've got thousands of drawings to do in order to finish this film!
The Krah Khronicles

Too bad "The Krah Khronicles" by Steve Rolston never materialized. This project, from 2005, was going to be a spin off of ZED featuring the foul mouth heavy metal band, Krah. Steve just unveiled the artwork on his blog. Check it out!

A few days ago, after reading a nasty comment about my work on the internet, I posted the following statement on my facebook: "When people hate my work, I feel like they hate me personally." I wasn't really depressed, I just wanted to voice an opinion that I'm sure many artists share.
The post prompted several people to leave comments including this one from Inkynebula Faye Retinioti: "haters gonna hate, and I love your work. I actually love it so much, I have it on me. For life. Keep up the good work."
Here's the picture of Faye's tattoo next to my original drawing.

ECCC and Saga of Rex
March 4th, 2013
I had a good time last weekend signing at the Emerald City Comic-Con. Big thanks to Image Comics and Fantagraphics for providing me with time and space to sign.
Besides that, my life has pretty much been consumed by The Saga of Rex production. As I mentionned in an earlier post, I've been mostly updating the Saga of Rex Production Blog instead of this one. For day to day updates, make sure you check the Twitter feed on the right, and better yet, join me in the conversation! And if you feel like it, join The Saga of Rex Production Blog! Here's a little peek.
