November 30, 2021 Leave a comment

Drew Spence from the Dynamic Universe and Digital Art Live presented the Advanced Comic Book Creation series. I was joined by Paul Bussey and Tiffany Gray in a course designed to push your Visual Stories into new and exciting directions. Week 7 featured the works of four artists. Ed LaRoche from Image comics and his series The Warning, Pam Harrison and here series A Deviant Mind and House of the Muses, John McClellan and his Monster of Egypt and John Byrne and his X-Men Elsewhen.

The Warning (10 book series)

An enormous machine slowly materializes in a major West Coast city. Who sent it—and why—is a mystery, understood only by the malevolent beings gliding silently toward Earth through the inky vastness of space. In response, a multinational combat brigade called Gladiator Two-Six is deployed. Outfitted with next-generation military science and weapons, they’re tasked with stopping any extraterrestrial threat that emerges.

Monster of Egypt (Graphic Novel)

International Jewel Thief Jonathan Fox is caught in a vicious game of espionage as he fights to stop a deadly terrorist in this hard-hitting graphic novel.

Deviant Mind & House of the Muses 

Pam Harrison is one of the first and best-known CGI artists in Independent Comics. Her work with the historical fiction series House of the Muses earned her the 2008 Prism Comics Queer Press Grant for Outstanding Series, and she continues her storytelling in a gripping sci-fi space opera adventure, A Deviant Mind, that far transcends its original LGBT audience.

Here’s How it Works

A Carefully Selected Coaching Group

I review applications before artists are given an offer to join the group so you can rest assured that this will be a dedicated and creative set of people for you to grow with.

8 weeks of Support and Training

The group will run from mid September on Saturdays.

Each week we’ll have a Zoom webinar meeting (up to 1.5 hours) composed of training , coaching and follow up.

The topics of these training sessions will be based on the above, but we’ll pay special attention to coaching you through your sticking points.

We’ll provide you with class assignments and a content library to use in building the pages and panels.

In our live meetings everyone will share wins, goals, and challenges to get support, accountability, and feedback from the group and guidance from us.
