Autobiographical Conversations

I was cleaning the basement but then spiders so that's a big ol' nope for until I can vacuum those guys up.

So let's talk about a cool thing on the internet that you should know about. I've mentioned Ryan Claytor in the past (and this is where I'd normally link to his personal web page, but the only thing I want to be linking to today is this one particular project) as, y'know, the guy who taught me The Comics. A lot of you who follow this blog probably follow his activities too, but in case you don't:

Ryan is doing an indigogo campaign (go to it here) to raise funds so that he can do a large, nice printing of a book that compiles his latest minicomics, all of which center around the intersection of autobiography and comics.

Plus, he's been converting from flat black and white to a duotone look which....gotta say, looks pretty sweet. Check out this example:

If nothing else, go check out the video; it explains better than I can, and if you've got any little bit to contribute, please please do :)

I've got a series of posts to make in the next couple of days, but I thought I'd update with some actual physical painting type stuff real quick since that's about all I've got the brain power for right now (rapid pack and cleaning of apartment+graduation+two days of driving==sleepies)

With these, I've discovered that I've no idea how to accurately photograph/adjust an image to get day-glo paint to look like itself. So that'll be a problem to overcome. If anyone's got any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

more project progress gifs

I've got a bunch of acrylic paintings to take photos of, plus some other stuff, but this (at least in a rough form) is due this Wednesday (I've got the last sequence to get through...just five shots or so? but I've no idea how she's actually going to beat the boss yet....gotta figure it out tomorrow; then it'll be sound and editing things together, shouldn't be too bad, really)'s everything so far: (EDIT: and....finished? maybe? to be refined, certainly but...yeah. so sleeps)

(sorry to people with low bandwidth D: )
