Salgood Sam's Work Log
Start off this work log with a partial cross post from my blog, got a lot of stuff on the go right now.
I've been busy, doing shows like TCAF always take it out of me. Takes a while to get back into the routine and catch up. I warmed up by rebuilding my home web page, like the new look? Really converted to WP in a big way [have five sites working on the platform now] and i'm loving the themes from graphpaperpress.com [this is one with a few small mods and so is this and this]. I've installed wpStoreCart, working on building one now, wondering what kind of things to sell? Would love to have some feed back. I've got posters and some books to start. What other sort of things you guys suggest trying? What's worked best?
Ok, what it's all about, comics, comics, comics.
On Revolver, PIN CITY, with new lettering.Carte Blanche is up - I'm the graphic fiction editor there.
From the Eisner Award–winning creator of ‘Too Much Coffee Man’,
Shannon Wheeler, a classic gag comic, ‘Oil Spill’.
And from James Romberger, of ‘Seven Miles A Second’, ’2020 Visions’,
‘Bronx Kill’, and ‘Aaron and Ahmed’, we are very proud to present
a 16 page short story, called ‘Raymond’.
We had many other excellent submissions we couldn’t accept,
but i’m pleased to present a few of them on Sequential HERE instead!
That's two pages of my own comics and 5 other short stories!
PS: My editor In chief says we've not gotten enough feed back from the comics crowd yet so if you check out the site, take a second to tell carte blanche what you think about about it by filling out their short readers’ survey.
and got these done
I started a site to publish my fathers amazing work, he wrote and took photos, go look now, see what i just posted last...
I'm working on a project for next summer with Mark Sable. Published another issue of carte blanche and am working on the first print edition layouts now - doing some illos to go in it too.
I remastered and self published RevolveЯ, wish it would have sold more over the holidays though, it's a great deal I think. It looks great in colour! Check it out and order yours here. Every sale goes to helping keep this artist in pasta sauce and veg!! I need my veg. And energy drinks...and, well...other things. THANK YOU!
And all through that and more Dream Life has plugged on, just over 90 pages up now the story has progressed well i hope. Here's the last page to go up for 2011. Start here to read from the beginning. Another option, that i quite like myself - posted the whole thing on G+ to take advantage of their awesome gallery set up and navigation.
Also, an ex-radio dj, i do have a soundtrack in mind.
Ok, that's it for now!
Not a church though, not that it really matters. the whole city is like that. It's a magical city.
Working tonight on the last page of chapter 2. been suck a long haul but things will be picking up from here [the next few chapters are not as long]. Been thinking a lot about whether or not to use the same approach to Dream Life as i did with therefore repent. Which would mean at some point, maybe with chapter three, to not post the comic for free, but save it till the book is done, maybe sell it in three parts in digital form. We had a 60 page free preview for therefore repent, about a third. I'm at the one third point now for Dream Life, might be a good point to do that.
here's the page i completed last night
