What it’s like to be 40

Here’s another time lapse of the comic.

 

Also, surprisingly, I’ve been enjoying being on periscope. It gives me a chance to improvise comics on the fly and interact with people in a way that I find much more meaningful than twitter. Download the app and join in by following me @nyetoon

 

SuperNova

This is one of my favorite jokes from the Sanity Index comics that I wrote in 2011 when I was super super depressed. These little dudes crack me up, even if know one else understands.

 

Also! PEOPLE!

See the youtube clips on the  right?

I’ve been doing a bunch of live doodles, where you can join in and tell me what to draw!

Here’s one, except on periscope you can chime in live.

My Fan Art for “Better Call Saul”

Nyetoon_BetterCallSaul_01

 

I usually don’t do things like this, but I had a friend challenge me to come up with something. So, I figured what the heck. I watched the first few episodes with my sketchbook to try to see if I could capture “Saul Moments.” The first thing I’ll tell you is that Bob Odenkirk is hard to draw.  Besides an overall goofy way of holding himself and a receeding forhead comeover, he has very little in the way of “spoofable parts.” Most cartoon characters I draw have big eyes or glasses or something that is indicative of them. Saul doesn’t have much.

And his gestures are dual layered. He’s lying while overcompensating with large actions. A very difficult thing to illustrate in a drawing.

Anyway, the show is fun and I took a stab at it. It certainly reminded me that I enjoy drawing comics, which is why I am trying to finish up a batch of nyetoons … I hope friggin’ soon.

Thanks for reading.

People tell me they like watching the time lapses. So I made another one. This time, to the Chemical Brothers, my all time favorite music to ink to.

The Demands of Married Life

Nyetoon_when_01

I took a couple months off to work on some client stuff — hey, I need money! And I took January off to work on a video game, check it out here. 

I’ve been feeling the pull to come back to Nyetoon, and I know Lisa wants me to come back to it. So, I’ve started writing again. I’m also retooling the strip a bit. Will start posting again, starting Monday.

thanks for reading!

 

Taking a Break, and back at it

Nyetoon_Takingabreak_01

Taking a short break. Back in the New Year.

Nyetoon_takingashortbreak_01I’m going to take a short break from Nyetoon for the next month. Probably until the new year.

I’m not going to bore you with the many many things that are going on currently with my life, but let’s just say, that I need the time and emotional energy that I normally would use to write and draw the comic to focus on a very important opportunity. It needs a vast amount of my creative focus, and it would be a real tragedy if the product suffered because I didn’t really take a real honest-to-god shot at it.

I’ve learned a lot about myself by drawing Nyetoon in the last six months or so, and I fully intend to come back to it after I’ve sorted out this other project. I’m also going to use the opportunity to reflect on the work I’ve done with the comic, take stock in some of the honesty I’ve pursued with my writing, and (hopefully) retool the strip for the better.

Recession Bear and myself will see you soon. Have a wonderful and safe holiday season, and as always… Thanks for reading.
