Rawn gets a new partner/teacher....
This strip has become difficult to balance with my other responsibilities. It has become less of a fun project and more of a job. So I am going to take a little break until my life slows down some.
Sorry I haven't been updating the comic in awhile I hope to start shortly after I finish this commissioned project.
You can help fund the project here.
Below are sample images of my first attempt at a 24 Hour Comic - a challenge to finish writing and illustrating a 24 page comic in 24 hours. By page 3, the exhaustion of 2 prior all-nighters set in. After page 10, I took a nap and finished penciling 11-14 before time was up. The inks and grey tones were completed after the 24 hour time period. You can download the full comic here. Enjoy.
First off. I promise that I will get back to Richmond Monuments. I have an illustration gig that is coming to a close and will let me get back to work. I've been writing a few strips in the mean time.
Secondly, below is an update on my comic adaptation of Samad Behrangi's children's book, The Little Black Fish.
"The storytelling, the design, the art, letters, and color on Bizhan Khodabandeh's Little Black Fish all stood out to me immediately as something really worth spending time with. This is his first comic I am told. I am impressed. It is a beautiful story. Anyone with a love of comics would do well to
Author/artist of "Pop-Gun War", Artist of "Omega The Unknown"
This is a comic adaptation of a story by Iranian teacher and activist, Samad Behrangi.
To give you a short description of the story ... It is about a fish who unforgivably questions authority and is determined to learn through her own experiences. In the book, the little black fish embarks on a right of passage journey to find whether or not her friends' stories about the sea are true. During her travels, she is confronted by various animals who try to persuade her from continuing and some who threaten her very life. The story provides an important example of one's determination in seeking the truth.
