keeping up the creative energy

I promised Amanda Nichole I'd relay this question to all you after-hours artists out there: "How do you maintain the creative energy to do comics and illustration after 8 hour shifts of squeezing your brain for design day jobs? … I find myself doing so much critical thinking and design for marketing agency work and FanimeCon that my brain and body are totally drained by the time I get home!"

Just a little ditty to get the creative juices flowing. I don't think I'm going to have any gunplay in my tale. :)

Yarns Volume 1, Now Available at Isotope Comic Lounge!

Also, I took a trip this week to my local comic shop and dropped off a few copies. I was pretty stoked and had to take pictures of our book sitting next all the other shiny new books. A few more pictures and details on the shop over on Pixelor…

A Few Yarns Reception Photos

I finally got around to posting some pictures over on my Pixelor site. Here's a sample…

I'm so excited...

...and I now have an 80's song stuck in my head. : /

So...quick question. I have been brainstorming on my story for YARNS 2 and was wondering if a genre crossover would be considered cheating?

My initial concept is about an orphan boy (14-15ish) who is searching for something/someone. The spin is that he's actually not from the Old West or even on Earth. He's part of the first round of earthling settlers on an alien planet being terraformed by said earthlings. The planet is similar to our 'High Desert' and actually already supports life, it just needs a little more user-friendly work. All of the attire, scenery, etc. will be Western-esque with little tweaks here and there for the whole "futuristic-alien-world-cowboys" thing.

And so I ask, is this okay? Or am I cheating by making this a western/sci-fi combo? I can always rework my storyline I would just rather do so now before I become too endeared to it.

Yarns volume 2 is now underway! We've chosen to go with a theme this time around: the western genre. Y'all stay tuned as we begin the research and idea development for our stories.

Just a reminder that the Yarns exhibit is up until May 18th at Sacramento State University. In fact, if you happen to go the Dept of Design Spring Show on May 15th, we've made special provision to have the 2nd floor gallery open that night so you can take in both! For more info on the exhibit, click here.
