you are always so kind and your graphics are inspiring

The Firebrat Kickstarter is live!

So I’ve been talking about this for a while but it’s finally time!  Vivid Publishing is running a Kickstarter to publish my graphic novel, Firebrat: The True Meaning of Christmas. It’s my loving homage to the ridiculously cheesy Christmas specials of the late 80s/early 90s, about a group of kids who chosen to visit Santa Claus at the North Pole on Christmas Eve…. but it turns out to be a terrible journey into the dark depths of holiday madness. Also monsters! Lots of monsters from Christmas myth and legend!

I never liked how all those old Christmas specials badgered you about how important it was to believe in the unknowable mystery of the Christmas season… like, literally, every Christmas special that wasn’t just a rehash of gift of the magi was about the importance of belief. So that was part of my inspiration for doing this story.

Also my wife is Jewish and she always complains abuot how Chanukah gets short-shrifted during the holiday season. So she kind of inspired me to try and create a goofy Christmas parody that even she could enjoy!

I’m really stoked about this, because, if we get enough pre-orders, it’s going to be in color! And the color is going to be super awesome, it looks just like an old Peanuts Christmas special.

It’s the first Christmas story about NOT believing in stuff! Check it out and, you know, if it floats your boat, consider backing us! It’ll be GOOD.

i'm at that point in my life where i have no idea what i'm going to do with my life. i'm trying to tinker around in my free time with different things to see if i like them- graphic design is next on my list. do you have any recs about how i can start trying it out? should i download photoshop and start playing around?? i'm just a little lost and confused with what i'm doing overall... ty very much, though! your blog always gives me lots of motivation!!

go out and see, experience, listen, hear, etc. it might sound really, really bland at first, but i honestly think the simplest actions are the most crucial basics when getting into any kind of creative field. you can get inspiration and ideas from pretty much anything or anyone, so going to museums, people-watching, taking walks, talking to people, eating different foods, etc. are all great ways to let your mind wander without limitations. make sure to take a sketchbook with you!!!! doodle a lot and jot down notes, even if they don’t make sense at first. i feel like little bits and pieces of your life somehow always sneak into my art and design subconsciously (which is a good thing!!!).

as for programs, adobe creative suite is great. i find for graphic design specifically though, photoshop, indesign, and illustrator are the most used!!!
