I don’t have my own table at FanExpo Boston this weekend, but at the Boston Comics Roundtable table (A1200), they’re selling the new BCR Playing Card Deck – and my art for <i>Le Roi de Coeur</i> (King of Hearts) is the King of Hearts. Go visit, say hi, and pick up a deck! http://bostoncomics.com/order-bcr-playing-cards-online/ https://www.fanexpoboston.com/content/dam/Informa/bostonComicCon/English/2019/Map/Exhibit%20Hall%20Map.pdf #mastoart #scratchboard #BostonComicsRoundtable
@BitterMause I like the one with the dark background, but until I zoomed in on it I thought the character was wearing a skirt.
@tatterberry What's the name of the surface?
If you have Facebook "like" buttons embedded on your website, it could make you liable for breaking GDPR privacy laws, even if it's Facebook doing the illegal stuff:
You can protect your site from legal liability (and protect your users' privacy) by removing all Facebook like buttons.
Please tell your employers/organisations about this ruling, it may help convince them that Facebook is toxic (or at least that embedded like buttons are toxic).
Here's an oldie of mine from 2005. I'm not much of a gardener, so it wasn't until someone pointed it out to me that I should have made the gardener's tan with white hands for gardening gloves.
R.I.P. MAD Magazine. You were a profound influence on me and my work. https://www.comicsbeat.com/mad-magazine-ending/
@womensart1 Reminds me of some of the work I've done in recent years of scratchboard with watercolor.
blood, bones, a comic page, not very explicit
@he_xie Have you tried this with a darker, more crimson (blood-like) red? Right now the really bright red seems to be fighting with the rest of the composition. I'm thinking making the red skulls darker would make them pop forward more, so they frame the scene.
One of the most frustrating aspects of having an art career is the fundamentally opposite pulls of making and publicizing one's work.
If you want to make your work the best it can be, you have to have enough humility to know you can always do better than what comes easily. If you think you're good enough now, you won't grow.
If you want to be able to pitch your work to others, you have to believe it's the best thing ever. If you don't believe your own hype, you won't convince anyone else.
I'll have a table tomorrow at Somerville Public Library Comix Con (FREE to the public 10 AM -- 4 PM) and moderating a panel discussion on the Boston area comics scene, 2:30 -- 3:30 PM. Hope you can make it! http://www.libraryinsight.net/eventdetails.asp?jx=sep&lmx=%C9aa%21%A3%A5&v=3
As #Easter is coming up, a reminder that rabbits are very complex animals with more needs than most realise.
They live 10 or more years, aren't usually big on being cuddled, cost as much as a dog, and need a lot of time, space to run around, and attention. They should allay be kept in pairs at least.
A whopping *75%* of rabbits in the UK are neglected. Please, if thinking of getting a bunny, know what you're getting into or stick with chocolate http://bunny.nipple.solutions
@ais05 @roytang These look realistic enough to me -- I especially like the refraction where the eyes of the first subject meet the rims of the glasses. But not knowing the original subjects, I can't say how close a match it is.
Maybe your mother needs to be more *specific* about what "looks wrong". Because it may just be a matter of your using color in a way that rubs her the wrong way. In other words, a stylistic choice.
"#Zuckerberg’s essay is a power grab disguised as an act of contrition.
By narrowly construing #privacy to be exclusively about #endtoend #encryption, he avoids having to think about Facebook’s weaknesses and missteps. Privacy is not just about keeping secrets. It’s also about how flows of info shape us as individuals and as a society."
