2016 means business

Though I doubt any lives were changed by Corporate Bastard not publishing anything for a longer than expected time still I apologize for disappearing for so long.

Last year.  It had a fair amount of negative stuff going on.  A major comic project fell apart.  I took on too much daily work.  Also though, some super great things happened, and all of my efforts repositioned me to accomplish a lot in 2016.

Issue 6 is coming.  You should actually be able to get it before Phoenix Comicon, which I will be set up at again.  And after that is done, it’s time to make a collected edition.  That is going to be a major undertaking to spread Corporate Bastard truly worldwide.

Additionally in 2016 I am putting some work together for anthologies as well as teaching myself new techniques of art.  Original pieces will be put out at least 3 times a week, so check back regularly for all the new info.

Back from LA

Anaheim, actually.  Sorry to disappoint, but I don’t have a script deal yet with several zeroes after a number.  Wondercon was pretty awesome though.  There are some amazing indie creators out there (whom I will start featuring more on the Gren website).

There was interest in Corporate Bastard by a substantial amount of attendees, always a morale boost.  Coolest thing, someone living in the LA area was already familiar with my comic thanks to the internet.  An organized plan has started hatching over the weekend to get myself and other Phoenix comic creators into more shops in other states, primarily California.

Mr. Ryan Quackenbush that set up with me was satisfied too with the con, despite this ill-timed picture. (I am learning to take better photos I swear.)

So let’s see, I still need to get the new issue, the coffee mugs, and the specialty stress balls listed on the website.  Then I will plan my set up at Second Friday in Mesa (which I will be out there tomorrow and May 8th near Lulubell Toys).  After that there will be finishing some comic assembly this weekend.  Finally, create the entire final issue by Phoenix Comicon.  No big deal.

So much busy, it be great!

I aint got time for grammar!

Wrong. I am a writer first, and there is always time for proper grammar.

It has been two weeks now fully off the day job.  Yes, it’s wonderful but hard to keep from being nerve racked when you are used to income rolling in regularly.  Aside from finishing up Issue 5 I have been busy with many other things.  Much is going into preparation for the booth at Wondercon in Anaheim.  Two new products to release as well as a new issue, keeping it all secret until finished products are in my hands.

I can show you the work going into a proper banner for convention setup.

Don for banner work

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That is going to end up about 2 feet tall.

More updates to come.

Watch out, full-time writing going on!

So it has been a while since I updated here.  If you would like details, go here.  The more up to the moment importance is that I left my day job and will be focused on just Corporate Bastard and other writing for a bit.  No, I didn’t kill any of my managers at the call center.  They are wonderful people.

I have shows coming up, 2 issues to finish by the end of May, and new products to roll out.  Actually, that is a lot.  What am I doing here?  I gotta go!

 

 

Doin’ it better with puppets

Because who can say no to puppets?

 

 

So I made that for the same Kickstarter last week, mostly due to finding that the previous video didn’t play well on phones and let’s just admit that most of us are exploring a majority of the internet with a device that fits in our pockets.

It’s good to learn these things now though, before say a Corporate Bastard Kickstarter is launched for a collected edition next year.

So it has been this and writing and promoting that have kept me busy.  A webcomic is coming.  That may be done this weekend if I can be happy with it.  We’ll see about that.
