The First Born Main Promo Art

And here's the completed art work.  For the promo I deleted the background layers and turned it into a PNG file so that I could use it as a shaped layer on the InDesign page and place it over the other things in the promo without having a blue box around it.

The First Born Pencil Art

I'm starting a new Buried Alive production for the UH Webzine Ka Lamakua.  The production is called "The First Born" and it's pretty cool.
There's a page in the Welcome Back issue of Ka Leo that has a promo for it and I did an illustration for that promo.
Here's the pencil work I did.

137. The Steak and Egg Burrito

Yesterday and the day before I was able to do something amazing.  That is, hang out with an old friend I hadn't seen in two years, except over teh interwebs, here in sunny southern California.
Though the majority of our time was spent in a rushed attempt to reclaim the lost two years of our shared college experience in a mere two days, we still managed to write a comic together, without even trying.
Josh, as you may call him, used to make comics for me during our freshmen year and I, in return, would publish them in Ka Leo.  His comics were the best the paper's ever had.  I wish I could get him to reveal his ideas, or at least the way his mind works, to me, build a time-machine and then make his comics before he did - just like any good friend.
Just like during our collaboration comics for QuarterDown, he was funnier than me. But since he owed me money for beer, he said I could make a comic out of this little conversation we had.  And here it is. Enjoy.
