Mystically Apocalyptic: A Trip into Wheeling, WV

Please excuse my absence on the blog. I’ve been working extra hard on KickStarter rewards and comic strips.

However, I wanted to share a little story with you.

You see, Christian (my collaborator on Validation) stopped by Wheeling on her way across the country. We got lunch at Later Alligator, a little local crepe restaurant in downtown, and if you haven’t been there, you REALLY need to go. Their crepes are delicious and have punny little names (like the Crepes of Wrath, Pesto Change-o, or the Crepe Escape. I had the Alligator Rock, and it’s delectable). They also have dessert crepes, like the S’mores Crepe. It’s as awesome as it sounds.

Anyway, after lunch, Christian and I saw some more sites, including a little bridge that will make an appearance in Charlie & Clow: The Case of the Wendigo.

However, this idea is one I’ve hinted at on Twitter and Tumblr, and occasionally here on this site. So┬átoday I want to talk more in-depth about it. Continue reading “What is “The Uthers”?”

What Is The Legend of Jamie Roberts?

Last week I was on the Nerd Perspective radio show (which was a LOT OF FUN). One of the guys hosting the show asked me, “I saw you post about The Legend of Jamie Roberts on your blog. What is that about?”

I’ll start with the story itself, and go from there. Continue reading “What Is The Legend of Jamie Roberts?”

“I’ve Got It!” A Post About New Inspiration

Lately I was stuck in a rut.

I found myself looking at the blank sketchbook page or white text file thinking, “Really, what’s the point? I don’t have any new stories.”

All my art looked dull, and nothing sparked me to write new material.

UNTIL… Continue reading ““I’ve Got It!” A Post About New Inspiration”
