Joe:“This is a scene that’s a little later in the story, showing the panel planning and drawing process up close. I’m using ArtRage here, but have since moved on to Manga Studio, as its specifically designed to develop comics with its comic page and panel layout features. Before Manga Studio, I was experimenting by creating […]
Joe:“Before setting pen to paper, or stylus to screen in this case, Kirby and I work out the overall arc of the story and what will happen to the characters. I’ll then sit down and map out each page in a thumbnail format so I have an idea of how things are going to unfold. […]
Joe: “In order to get a clear idea of where everything is spatially, drawing a floor plan of the intended setting helps a great deal. In film, when you’re setting up a shot, you need to be aware of the “180 Degree Rule” and apply this to comics. Being in a 2D space, you need […]

I know all. I see all.They call me “Headcast” and I predict things. Normally, I don’t fall for these trendy lists as I find them inane and pointless. This year, however, the visions were too strong to ignore and the predictions I have been seeing online are so ludicrous, so foolish, that I must intervene with […]

Whew! it’s all done for the time being. This past weekend, Chicken Outfit pulled a weekender in Toronto and did two parallel shows: Canzine on Saturday and Horror-Rama over Saturday and Sunday. We met a lot of amazing people, sold some comics and had a really great time. Here’s some images from Horror-Rama with some of […]
