Boulder and Fleet Process GIF

Here's a gif of how the cover to the new Boulder and Fleet: Adventurers for Hire webcomic came together. Penciled in LayerPaint HD on the Galaxy Note 10.1, then inked and colored in Clip Studio Paint, using many of Ray Frenden's terrific Clip Studio/Manga Studio brushes (http://ift.tt/1pV80zT).

Boulder and Fleet is a fantasy comic about a bear and a bird who travel the world and right wrongs. Kind of like Quantum Leap or the old Incredible Hulk tv show, but with cute animals.

Next page drops Monday, but you can read 20 pages of archives at http://ift.tt/1lP3ug5 or on Tapastic at http://ift.tt/1yEsHCG

Nobody drives Cap'n Cat's boat but Cap'n Cat!

Another #inktober sketch. Could Cap'n Cat and Maggie show up in the Boulder and Fleet webcomic? Sure, why not?

The making of the Warren Commission Report

+Dan Mishkin, Ernie Colón, and I were interviewed on +Comic Book Resources about our comics documentary on the Kennedy Assassination. Dan and Ernie offer some terrific insights (and I chime in with some enthusiasm).

RJ Rocketpunch would rather maintain his punches than join the party

Though he's happy to be with his friends, sometimes RJ Rocketpunch prefers some quiet time with his sentient punches more than being the center of attention.

Pickles, however, never passes up a chance to show off her dancing skills.

It's time to unbox the age-old question of Talent vs. Effort on Comics Are Great!

How does your comics work change when you shift your focus from "expressing yourself" to "putting in the effort?" Are these terms mutually exclusive, or does the focus oscillate between those poles throughout the project? If so, how do you know when it's time to change your focus?

On the next Comics Are Great! show I'll be joined by +Zack Giallongo  (http://zackules.tumblr.com), cartoonist behind Broxo (http://goo.gl/ymN3CW), Star Wars: Ewoks: Shadows of Endor (http://goo.gl/8DwTeU), and the Stratford Zoo Midnight Review series (http://goo.gl/fkjYwq). Together we'll explore how a career in cartooning is equal parts creative expression and herculean effort, and how one finds balance between the two.

You can join the discussion via comments on the G+ event page!

Talent or Effort? with Zack Giollongo – CAG 106

The Boulder and Fleet webcomic has launched!

Actually, the webcomic doesn't launch until 9 am ET Monday, but I'm sharing it early with my friends on G+. 

In Mining for Trouble, Boulder and Fleet find themselves lost in a strange land. When they picnic by a nearby mining operation, they find themselves embroiled in a battle with mineral people!

You can read the comic here on G+ (http://goo.gl/YtNaOf), on Twitter (http://ift.tt/1yEsHCE), Instagram (http://ift.tt/12ND9O1), Tumblr (http://ift.tt/1lP3ug5), and Tapastic (http://ift.tt/1yEsHCG).

I'll update the comic weekly on G+ first, though!

Adventuring is hungry work!

Boulder and Fleet take a much deserved lunch break after righting wrongs. Though Fleet shouldn't talk with her mouth full!
