Allison finds something weird in Sean’s journals (which is saying something) in today’s new Mush-A-Mush page!
Enjoy!
Head on over to the site to get caught up on this chapter, as well as the first three! Mush-A-Mush!

Red = danger!
I mean, I’m just guessing. *shifty eyes*

Guys, the final Bigfoot Boy graphic novel came out this week! Bigfoot Boy is a kids graphic novel trilogy drawn by me and written by J.Torres. It’s a fun and adventurous story about Rufus, who finds a totem in the woods behind his grandmother’s house, that transforms him into … a Bigfoot. It is super Canadian. It’s set on the Canadian west coast and has First Nation characters in it, and also lots of awesome girl characters because of course, I drew it. ;) 

If you know any young readers who are interested in comics but aren’t quite old enough for classics like Bone or Smile, this would be a great series to give them. 

Here’s the publisher’s website, and you can order these from Amazon, Chapters/Indigo, your local bookstore or local comic store.

Here’s a book trailer for the series

Hope you enjoy it! I’ve been drawing these comics since 2011, and it was a fantastic experience. Learned a lot about drawing animals. ;)

weirdly relevant to the question I answered yesterday.

Just repeat to yourself “This isn’t the Olympics, it’s an industry” and go make those comics!!!!!!!!!

Nameless City panels drawn over the past … month? It’s really hard to draw tackling, you guys. I do not have a future in sports comics.

One thing I don’t undertand in comics is characters talking with their mouths closed. You see it all the time in mainstream books. I’m certain there’s a point when I was drawing comics that I flipped from not even thinking about the closed mouth talkers (my early stuff is full of them) to really hating them. It completely punctures the reality of a panel for me if someone’s talking with their mouth closed.

This drives me crazy! A speech bubble floating above a character’s head, and he or she has their mouth shut. Don’t do this! It loses the immediacy of the dialog when the mouth isn’t open.

"The only reason I think it’s inaccurate to say that this is the golden age of graphic novels is that implies it isn’t going to keep getting better and better — and it is." - Calista Brill

Me, Raina & my editor Calista talk up a storm about graphic novels & other interesting things!
