A couple things to talk about here tonight.
First off, I have mentioned doing the Super hero inspired robots for deniath.com . They are all finished and shipped off Monday afternoon. they are for a special daily sale they do and all 12 will be available for purchase. I am not sure about the exact date yet, but I do know it’s very soon. I will post on here when I know.
In the meantime (no relation to the Helmet song) they did an interview with me that went up today. So if you find yourself in a crazy position where you want to read an interview with someone with a large bag of social awkwardness and a small box of how to interact with other humans, I suggest you read it here. I also give a little insight into some of whats coming up this year.
Here is a preview of one of the drawings that will be for sale (there will be prints as well):
Another big bit of cool news is I am getting ready to do research for a new web comic. It will be a biopic project that I work on as time permits, but is a project I have talked about doing for many years.
I recently got in contact with Robert Troutman of Paranormal investigations of Arkansas about going out on an investigation or two with them. I talked with Robert on the phone today and it seems we are a go!
The idea is I wanted to go on a paranormal investigation with someone that is just kind of the average person. Someone who is very dedicated, but who doesn’t have a television show budget to work with. Someone who does it as a hobby, out of love and a desire to help people, and because of the pure enjoyment of it. I just want to go, observe, get their story and how they handle it and write a comic that tells everything from my perspective as an observer. I have a fascination with this stuff as well as a healthy respect for people who do it. This makes me very weary of watching some of the popular television shows about the subject. Seems to be a ton of showboating. Though I can’t help but watch. I mean, being scared is kinda fun sometimes, right? I just want to tell an honest story about people doing what they love.
It might be a little while before you see the first installments on this, but I will be posting updates as things happen. It looks like I might go on an investigation as early as next weekend. I have to give Robert a big shout out for being so on board and getting back to me. He basically got a random email out of the blue talking about someone writing a comic on what he does. I am pretty excited about this project and love that it will be a laid back thing I can work on when I get a chance. That, and I get to go look for ghosts!
