Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
Oh yeah! And look, it says "page 1"! Meaning more, (much more hopefully), to come! Ten pager? Twenty Pager?
So awe inspiring all I could think of for a comment on Tumblr was "Holy Shit"
Y'know, I like our little TAG club here. TAG Facebook has a lot more members, like 45 or so, but it's more intimate here. Maybe because on Facebook TAG not everybody knows everybody else, and it's a little more intimidating to post things there.
I love that you guys dig this. YES, I am doing more pages. Shooting for one a day--but that dang text takes FER-EBBER. Elz, I need to add a "Uncle Google Copyright Ellis Goodson, Boy Genius."Seriously I will.Glad you guys like this!
Google will sue me. I know what you mean. And I deeply appreciate it- moving the Uncle Goggle brand toward immortality.
DAMMIT I DID IT AGAIN I MEANT "UNCLE GOGGLE"!!!!
Now Tom made me feel like I have to write something. Foreboding establishing shot. Is that a rabbit, a dead turkey, and the fandango paper bag guy on the lower right?
Tom, I'm pretty grateful for "out little club", now more than ever since I'm so far away. It's comforting to see the work and words of my chums of so many years here.
Ben, you are funny--"Fandango Guy"....they dropped him a long time ago, I thought.But I love that you ID'ed my forest creatures!And Tom Moon, you are right--there's no internet gathering place that offers the convivial coziness of our dear Tuesday Art Group blog. Until Google wipes it from the internet as a reprisal for the Uncle Goggle/Google confusion.Rick, we will keep the homefires burning for ye!
I have a question. If you revive printing the EC type book idea, would contributors be keeping to the 7 panel grid of Tales from the Crypt?
Love page 2. Proportion wise- are you planning on the story going in landscape fashion? Turning the comic sideways to read. I remember the first EC paperback I bought. The Autumn People with a Frank Frazetta cover. All the stories were landscape layout. Your paperback became a top ring binder.Good new if that is acceptable. Because it would be the best format for me getting at least 4 panels medium size onto a page for Joined Together.Love the 2nd page. Keep it up. Finish the whole strip at this quality and it becomes a must-have for fans.
Simply amazing. Great work, Marty!
Dudes! So glad you're digging it. I hadn't thought about horizontal format before...page 2 is in fact just the top 2/3rds of page 2--I still have to finish the bottom third! Elz, if you wanted to do horizontal, we'd make it work....Ben, when you say 7 panel format, do you really mean 6?? Wasn't that the layout?? I'm pretty much going for that. I'm not a big modernist when it comes to clever ways of dividing and overlapping panels...no shatter-pattern asymmetric frames scattered across the page fer me (cool as those look when handled by an expert like out Brent Anderson). I find it hard enuff to draw these traditional style. And if it was good enuff for Kirby....I'll keep working on the story--probably be delayed a bit here 'cuz I gotta prep for class tomorrow. Animals...sheesh. Lookit that dog's front shoulder--you can tell I drew those canines before my return to the study of animal anatomy!!
I bought Tales from the Crypt vol. 4 from Bud Plant at the Con. In each story every page save the splash page was 2 panel, 3 panel, 2 panel or 3, 2, 2. That a lot of narrative. The strict 7 panel format is what is keeping me from contributing to this project. Yeah, that's the ticket, seven panels. I was telling just that to my wife, -- Morgan Fairchild, about those panels, yeah, that's it.
I guess that's why it was possible to adapt to that paperback format. They got one row of panels a page.http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Autumn-People-RAY-BRADBURY-FRANK-FRAZETTA-/120807050171
If you can do a page a day that looks like this, I'm just going to give up.
Is this the one where Cork will be guest starring?
Tommy, as you can see, I'm nowhere near a page a day!YES, this is the "Tales from the Cork" spoof story--tho' now I'm torn about keeping Cork in it. Scott said it was fine with him (years ago), but I remember you guys weren't too keen on it...however, the story I wrote is pretty dang funny. So probably just do it. Fasten yr seatbelts for more pages his coming week....
I don't remember ever being not too keen on it. I remember being quite keen on it!
