Bleeding Cool was kind enough to let me write a piece for them to publish about my Kickstarter for Dead by Wednesday. You can read it here: www.bleedingcool.com/2014/11/2…

Working on my newest Kickstarter, this one for the comic Dead by Wednesday. You can check it out here: www.kickstarter.com/projects/e…
For those of you who have been kind enough to follow my work and various projects, I just wanted to let you know that my newest comic, Dead by Wednesday, is now live on Kickstarter. 

I co-wrote the comic along with my wife and editor, Kim Eggleston. She edited pretty much everything I worked on to date, and I don't imagine that will actually change even with her stepping into the realm of comics writing. She is no stranger to the written word, either, having been a professional writer for the past seven years. 

The penciller on the book is Jay De Foy, who is known as Harpokrates here on Deviant Art. Joshua Oakes, or jo-ink is doing inks (as he did on Last Breath), and John Hunt, jhunt5440, is on colors and letters (as he was on Last Breath and Cazadora). 

You can check out the Kickstarter by visiting this link

If you don't have the funds to pitch toward the project, I understand. You can help by simply sharing the link on your social media platforms and letting your friends and followers know that this is a quality, independent comic book.

I am a freelance writer who has decided that after a lifelong love of comics and a growing disappointment in the stories I've been reading, that it is time to try my hand at writing those stories myself.

I have worked as an editor on two versions of Mark McKenna's Combat Jacks and helped edit Jay De Foy's creator-owned title, Threadcount. My first creator-owned comic, Last Breath, will be available in February 2014, and my second comic, created with Randy Kintz, will be available in April 2014.

Hey I see that Sketchy reviews is down,  =(   I had a couple questions I was thinking of posing to you,  regarding the ins and outs of comic art commission.  Is there a resource for how to get the best work, what to expect and how best to understand the artist whos work we love?

There really isn't a resource that's a one-stop shop, Jeardawg, which is unfortunate considering the consistent rise in both popularity and prices of commissions. 

Your best bet is to always research your favorite artists to find the best way to approach them. Some insist on going through an art rep, while others give a great discount if you pre-commission a piece before a convention. 

One resource that I do like to look over is this forum: www.statueforum.com/forumdispl…

There, they usually can answer any question you may have about any artist, and you can typically find comments and experiences about dealings in terms of commissions. 

There are some really great artists out there who do wonderful commission work, and then there are some artists out there who simply scam you, or do work that isn't worth what you paid for. Obviously, the latter are the worst. 

If you have any specific questions, feel free to drop me a message. I stop by DA every few days or so, but I'll get back to you as soon as I see it.

Oh Hi! I was just wondering what you were going to do with the ink drawing of your lady character I did for you? I tried asking through e-mail but no response.

thanks!

It'll be posted on the comic's Facebook page and then included in the comic's Kickstarter sketchbook reward. :)
