The Bean 173

Trials come in all shapes and sizes. Almost three weeks ago, my wife hurt her ankle pretty bad. There were some pretty tense moments there as we did not know the extent of the damage, yet do not fret all is better. Though she over did it a little tonight in getting around I am […]

Good morning- Lets do questions. I think since we’ve hit 174 pages, now would be a fun time to have a little Q&A. Mind the spoilers and remember, just cause you ask doesn’t mean I will spill all the beans:) Yet I will be pretty open about answering on anything relating to the bean…. almost […]

Page 175 and other Tid Bits- Well the Q&A on the last update was a bust, but that’s ok, I figure that the questions are answering themselves. I do hope the new updating schedule has been easy on you as well. I hate changing things up at times, yet sometimes change is good. Recommended Reads […]

Still plugging through issue 7 and working on several commissions. If you want one send me a note. I’ll post more later. trav

It’s been a fun ride so far. We are finally getting into parts of the story that really made me want to do this in the first place.  As you take a moment to reflect back you will hopefully start to notice a few subtle and hidden things that are beginning to become reality. Everything […]

tap…tap…tap is this thing on? Ahem…. Ok it is time to announce the winner of the Fan Art Contest. Remember it was not based on how well you drew, but the fact that you submitted. Which was then thrown all to together and pulled randomly from a hat. Really hi-tech. Yet I am really excited […]

Well I am going to shorten the intro here – so you can see the other blog aspects. Still looking at some other additional changes here and there. I’ve started to do a few tweaks to shoptalk. I figured I would start adding custom artwork to the blogs, instead of older artwork. I hope you […]

I started off the day in a lull and even a bit moody. That mood changed as I opened an email around 3pm and squealed like a little girl. I was nominated for an Eisner.  I was floored…. I look at the talent around me and I am so humbled that I have been counted […]

So the dust has settled. Its pretty easy to get caught up in the moment. After the shock, I spent some quality time reading each of the nominees. I was very very impressed. I am reading them all the way through and found some very beautiful and distinct story telling techniques. It seems we are […]

The Bean 234

Transitions I am a fan of transitions. I believe that they allow for a nice balance in between scenes. The transition lets me build even more on my world. It allows me to show that the world is alive just as the characters are and helps me create a nice flow of tempo. Ok I […]
