I’m re-lettering my Web Comic Benny and Fritz and trying to make it look better because it’s time. And I drew this to…excite myself? For the new folks, I have a webcomic (co-author Kae) and I’ve been on hiatus from it for too long!
I just got some really nicely printed copies of my senior thesis comic, Bacchanalia! I worked on this comic for ages under the tutelage of David Mazzuchelli and I’m pretty excited about it. Here’s the blurb:
Josiah is still recovering from a bad breakup when he stumbles upon a hidden world of drug- and drink-fueled dance parties happening in the forest near his college. A handsome stranger who speaks in riddles, Greek mythology come to life, and a missing toy lure Josiah into a mysterious cult. Bacchanalia is a 24-page black and white comic about love, grief, and the seduction of altered states of consciousness.
This is something I’ve been working on for a long time now and it’s nearly done. It’s a story from my good friend Matthew Rosenberg, drawn by myself and colored wonderfully by Amanda Scurti. I’m as proud as I can be with myself on this project as my Irish guilt allows, and with it nearly finished here is a preview.
Thanks to those who’ve pledged so far to the Patreon campaign to make OCTOPUS PIE IN COLOR! If you haven’t, here is the info:
I’m forming plans to do Octopus Pie in FULL COLOR in the near future! The comic has been in black & white for 7 years, and I think it’s time to try something new that will really enrich the comic.
To be sure, I’ll need your help for this. I would be employing a colorist, so I’ve made this a priority as the next goal of my Patreon Campaign. If we hit $2400 in pledges a month, it’ll be enough to keep me eating and happy, AND working with a great colorist to produce 10 full color pages. If you love the comic but haven’t pledged, this is a great opportunity to do something that directly affects the art. It doesn’t need to be much - even a buck or two per month will help towards the goal! Pledges over $2 will also give you access to the sketches and vintage OP art I post to Patreon.
