This is a blog post two
I was going to write more here but I've just spent the past hour and a half fighting to try and upload a single 20MB image. I didn't think it was such a big deal but apparently it is (WTF is that all about Squarespace?!) The image is the biggest piece of comic book work I've completed so far. A few weeks ago I applied to take part in an artists residency at the Atlantic Centre for the Arts in Florida. I needed to submit a complete graphic story between 6-10 pages but I didn't have anything the right length so I had to hastily put something together. I have to admit I'm pretty pleased with the result. It's the first time I've ever had to do anything like this with a deadline and, unsurprisingly, I found that to be a big motivator. I would have liked to post a better quality version but, like I said, I (fucking Squarespace) had some issues uploading it, I'll keep trying but this is the best I can do for now. Go here to see the full thing
Whether I get a residency position or not I'm glad I spent the time creating this. One of the things I'm trying to do with this blog and site is create something that explains all about me and who I am, so when I meet new people I can just direct them here and I don't have to keep fucking repeating myself. I feel like this is a good first step in that direction.
