Deviant Art - Month 5

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 11, 2010, 8:55 AM
.:Thea's Cogitations
Comic book penciler and sociologist.

Ok, so the past few months, I've been absent from the DA.  Mostly because I'm feeling the crunch of having to produce so much work.  I love it, but I get depressed sometimes at my speed.  Of course, that just makes it harder to produce work; it's a lovely, vicious little cycle that I've produced for myself!  But with all hard work, there are rewards.  I've met so many great people, PATIENT people who are constantly telling me not to apologize for my speed.  And they like the work to boot.  

I do plan on posting more artwork soon, just need to get some projects closer to completion so that I can start taking out my pencils and 'playing' again.  

I've also signed up for the Miami Book Fair 'Women in comics' seminar coming this November. One of the artists there will be Amanda Conner, who I've been following for a while.  Her artwork keeps getting better and better.  Pick up Power Girl or better yet, the first issue of Wonder Woman with the new costume that recently came out.  She's got a cute story in that issue.  

I'm currently reading "Framed Ink" which is not a book on inking, but layout.  I'm terrible with layout and I wrack my brain trying to figure it out, what camera angle, the perspective, the whole business.  I DREAM layout these days.  I solved two pages by just sleeping on it.  But it's hard to be patient with the process of creativity.  I'm used to instant results.

Here's a link to the book, if you're interested in study -…

Till next month, hopefully with artwork in tow!
