I’m used to public speaking in two very specific situations: to students and at comics conventions. Want to come see how poorly these experiences have prepared me for the general public?
Featuring the world’s first viewing of my new project: The Mummy’s Sabbatical!

P.S. Forgive the “Comics have grown up!” line in the copy above. Apparently, this lecture series is big with the local retirees. We’re pitching broadly.

P.P.S. The Mummy’s Sabbitcal is a collaboration with talented young cultural allusion, Benito Cereno. So, you know, there will be puns in dead languages to look forward to.

We live in a world that contains jokes about Renaissance perspective.

Inktober Day 3

Inktober Day 3

I recently thumbnailed a million fencing poses, so there’s pretty good chance most of my inktober pieces will be 17th Century folks with swords.

At least until monster season begins in earnest.

A quick, last-minute start to INKTOBER.

Raiders of the Lost Arc as a study in staging

Steven Soderbergh made a silent, B&W cut of Raiders as a study in staging. And it illustrates the point brilliantly. Feed this into your illustrations/comics/films/whatever.

So I want you to watch this movie and think only about staging, how the shots are built and laid out, what the rules of movement are, what the cutting patterns are. See if you can reproduce the thought process that resulted in these choices by asking yourself: why was each shot—whether short or long—held for that exact length of time and placed in that order? Sounds like fun, right? It actually is.
