Ok, so new promise: updating this blog will happen on a weekly basis, on Saturdays. That’s when my schedule is the least crazy.
We only have to put up with this until May, when I graduate from college. Once I’m out of school, things will return to some state of normalcy!
So the first thing I would LOVE to share is that there is a wonderful website that supports independent and international musicians called ThrillJockey.com. Thrill Jockey also has a lovely feature on their front page where you can download certain songs FOR FREE. It’s a great way to listen in to those musicians that you might like to hear, but are unsure you want to buy from. I can tell you, though, that Sidi Toure and Pontiak are sure bets.
Always support independent musicians like these guys. They have great music (that’s not dictated by big record labels), they write their own lyrics (which can be really damn good), and you can help an artist make a decent living (which, you know, as a fellow artist myself, I’m always trying to find a way to give back to other artists).
On another topic, I know last week I promised to post sketches and some titles of comics I had purchased during a splurge at Half Price Books. Well….not this week. Sorry! But be on the lookout for that list.
And on the artistic front, I will be taking photos of my current 8-page mini project in the works, and I will share my other 8-page mini I finished this week. Other sketches will follow after that.
In the meantime, if you want more regular updates from me, might I suggest you visit my Tumblr blog? It’s magicallikethat.tumblr.com. I don’t post my sketches there (yet), but I do reblog worthy artistic inspiration and other things I like. Hopefully you all may like it too. :D
So as always, Don’t Forget to Be Awesome.
