Just a small update because I am often quite sparse with them to show commission progress and to plug a couple more neat webcomic kickstarters for anyone as addicted to this art form as I am. ; ) It's not something I've done a lot before, but I figure why not share things I think are really cool from fellow artists trying to make their way? Hopefully you guys agree!
First, a comic I feel like I was pretty late on catching wind of-- PLUME
. Don't know why I hadn't seen it more places! The art and story strike me as both solid and professional, and it's got an intriguingly nonstandard setting-- maybe that's just to me since it's set in the old west which I usually am not a big fan of that, but. Plume however brings a sort of Indiana Jonesish magical artifact premise to the setting, and instead of some generic cowboy protagonist, it has a sober, twiggy gun slinging heroine dead set on revenge and assisted by a mysterious man bound to a supernatural duty that has put him more or less outside the realm of normal human experience for quite some time indeed. The characters are interesting and layered, and artistically I love the way the artist contrasts the often faded and dingy scenery/clothing with the intensely saturated eyes of the main characters. Looking forward to seeing where this one goes. : )
Second, the second installment in an anthology of Cautionary Fables and Fairytales
that actually brings together a wide range of artists from across the web, most with their own personal comic up for reading. I think these anthologies are pretty awesome as a demonstration and recognition of the validity of self-published comic artists, and a pretty neat thing to just exist in general as a product of that massively creative community. In short, it's something worth supporting and has a lot of great art in it.
(I bought the original European volume recently, and the Puss n Boots twist by
was definitely my favorite. XD And this new one has
contributing too, so very excited!)
