Drawing Batman

6 Jun

I had a hard time deciding what I was going to do for 1134 Comix this week. I planned to make a new News from the Crypt episode. There were a few things that popped up in the news this past week that I though worthy of lampooning, but I just couldn’t decide. I might be moving away from making commentary through online comics. I’ve found myself much more focused lately on writing in general and other 1134 Press stuff. And I’ve been feeling the urge to get back to more drawing for fun, rather than going for jokes. I’m sure I’ll be making a comic about some politician before I know it, though. I’m all over the place. 

I woke up today without a proper idea for 1134 Comix. I was going to skip this week. After putting on this Batman t-shirt, however, I had my idea. I always liked drawing Batman. He’s one of my favorite DC Comics heroes, and I think he’s fun to draw. I tend to go for the big, super muscle-bound version of Batman when I draw him. I also like the blue and gray costume to draw. I do like the black costume with the armor and everything, but if I’m drawing for fun, I’m going gray and blue. 

I hope you enjoy the video!

Drawing in Watercolor

I’m trying something a little different this week. Rather than a drawing of one of my comic characters, or something else similar to previous videos, I made a drawing in watercolor. For the drawing, I took inspiration from a short story I wrote some years ago now. If you would like to read the story that inspired my drawing, I’ll link to it below. The Story is called The Transcendental Man. I also give some more context to the drawing, and spend some time speaking about creativity, 1134 Comix, and 1134 Press in general. That’s another thing new this week—I actually put my face on camera.

Cartoon Drawing

This week I wanted to do another video on drawing cartoons. More specifically, original characters from the 1134 Comix pantheon. But which character to do … that was the question. A number of weeks ago I posted an episode of “News from the Crypt” that featured a character called, “Mr. Pillow.” Obviously, the character is based on Mike Pillow, famed conspiracy theorist and pillow man. I recorded the drawing at the time, but I never did anything with the video. I figured this week would be good as any to post up the creation of Mr. Pillow. Besides, the video I had previously started for this week went wildly off the rails—I think it’s turning into something different than intended (which could be good or bad). 

I hope you like this short drawing video!

Short Film: Annihilation Anxiety

We have something a little different for you this week. This short animated film is based on a short story that will appear in a new book later this year. The book will feature a number of short stories based in possible futures. The book will include art, and at least some of the stories will be adapted into video form.

A Tribute to the Postmaster General (for doing a FANTASTIC job!)

18 Apr

This comic was inspired by my growing number of packages that have apparently decided to take up permanent residence in some USPS facility. I gave it a bit of a Laurel/Yanny quality. How do you see it—is the Postmaster General an ass, or something else?

Click the comic to see it drawn–the video is pretty damn funny, give it a look!
