Hey-o! We got the "go ahead" to reveal our comic submissions from the Aradia Beat and Summer in Aradia. While I have done a tour of these zine in their entirety, I'm sharing a "Quick Vid" to show off the comics I submitted.

I hope this video is entertaining. I've been filming working on stuff for the TCAF, reviewing a couple different dip pen inks, as well as drafting a review of Blue is the Warmest Color (the graphic novel). I can't give an ETA for any of these videos, but just wanted to say they are in the works.

In the meanwhile, you can check out Aradia Magical Girl Collective's main website, or their itch.io shop for comics to enjoy :D Links in the next section.

*I forgot the add the credits for the Arrested Development clip. The link is in the next section. Apologies!

This week I have a speed paint and design of the 5 Year Anniversary Logo for the Comic Fury Zine. I can't believe we've been publishing for five years!

Comic Fury Zine is a free web comic anthology comprised of one-shots submitted by the ComicFury web hosting community. There's also character art and cover art design that's a part of the zine, to highlight indie artists!

"A Walk in the Woods" is now available! Full Tour is coming soon :D

This week I'm revealing a FREE open source project my partner and a friend of his has been working on for me :D I talk about it in more details, but this tool allows you to take your .pdfs and have the pages automatically reordered so you can print your zines and projects at home!

This is not a revolutionary tool, but it is one that at least in my experience you have to pay for. And since my partner has the skill and the reason (me prodding him so I can save time and hard drive space), he worked on coding his own program for free public use.

Because we're a bunch of dirty hippies (actually, we're freaks, not hippies. Older peeps know the difference), and this will help artists/zinesters print their work from home!

The worst vlog you'll ever watch :D I try to make it interesting. It's realistic if anything (aside from this not being a typical week regarding birthday stuff for Bradman).

Apologies for the delay. I've had trouble exporting this one. All things considered, I will not make a vlog video this long again, I don't think. At least not for quite a while.

I've exported this three times, and parts of the time-lapse for some of my art process still freezes. I dunno what else to do, but at this point I'm sick of working on this video and am ready to move on. I've checked the whole thing like six times. The rest of it is fine, so I'm calling it done (you can see me coloring and inking in other parts of the video, as well as on my channel). Still, I apologize for the freeze. They don't last long, thankfully.

Now that you've sketched something with blue pencils, what the heck do you do next?

Well, I'll show you a couple ways you can clean up the page. Just two ways. Don't get too excited XD I'm a very simple artist, and once I find something that works for me, I kinda stick to it :P

I've been planning to make this video since August of last year when I started using blue colored pencil for my comic pages. However, a short while ago Kasey Golden did a WAY MORE extensive review of blue colored pencils and pricing for where she lives. It was a very entertaining video, and I highly recommend it!

This is video is not sponsored! It's just me trying out different blue pencils trying to find a good fit for traditional drawing and sketching and inking. Warning: there is cursing in this video.

You will see why XD

I'll be reviewing seven blue colored pencils:

Crayola Lt. Blue
Faber-Castell Lt. Blue
Staedtler Non-Photo Blue
Faber-Castell Ultra Marine
Progresso Koh-I-Noor Woodless Sky Blue
Pilot Color Eno Soft Blue

Not sure this is a true "beta flash." But it's not the solid beta flash with the heavy black borders. This could be converted into a solid beta flash.

Anyway, I'm just sharing how I tackled this pen and ink flash. I hope my words are helpful to anyone trying to tackle similar effects in traditional mediums :D

Let's sketch Major Kusaragi from Ghost in the Shell! In this video, I show the process for making fan art notebooks as belated Christmas gifts for a couple of my friends. From sketch, to transfer, "inking," and pulling it all together into a notebook, this video demonstrates the steps I took to make something I think is unique :D

I've been hand-making a few presents this year! So I thought I'd bring you all along to see (maybe learn, but this isn't a tutorial, really) how I hand saddle stitched a zine! This is to be applied to some gifts to a few of my friends.

This is actually a really fulfilling project. Nothing getting to sit back and see a hand made booklet you printed and bound!!

This is a stream. This is a stream where I work on a page from Dark Horse, my free post-apocalyptic magical girl fantasy set in the Pacific Northwest. It's pretty chill. I uploaded this from my Twitch channel. Feel free to listen in and work on your own projects!

Opening music is from zapsplat.com. Intro edited by Blue Dragon.

Just going on break for a while.

I hope to return in 2024, or sooner, but I can't really say at the moment.

Apologies for the abrupt break.

I'm prepping for the Portland Zine Symposium, running October 28-29, 2023! In this video, I'm sharing how I am reworking an online web comic, The Whimper in the Dark, to fit into a document that I'm printing at home!

This is not a step by step, this is more of a journal talking about The Whimper in the Dark, what I'm doing to change things up, and demonstrating videos of the work necessary for these changes.

It's a box. It's gonna get unboxed (seems like a strange way of saying "opening up to see what's inside. Must we strip the box of its box status in order to so? I suppose so...)

Let's see what indie comic goodies are inside!

This should be obvious, but I'm not sponsored.

With all the real life stuff going on, I feel out of my work schedule pretty hard. But that's okay! Here's the way I eased back into things.
