One of the (many) bonus features we’ll be including in the Snow package is a behind-the-scenes look at makeup for black & white cinema, featuring Snow makeup and hair stylist Margo Paige Allen.

One of my favourite shots ever, featuring lovelies Margo Paige (hair and makeup for Snow) and Kira Hall (Julia in Snow).


The movie draws oh so near!

TOWERKIND has been nominated for a 2014 Ignatz Award for outstanding series. I always find incredible new creators through the Ignatz nominations, so please check out that list!
I’m also exceptionally pleased to announce that TOWERKIND will be collected as a complete book, published through Conundrum Press, to debut at TCAF 2015.
My thanks go to the judges: Darryl Ayo, Austin English, Melissa Mendes, Thien Pham and Whit Taylor.
Ignatz Awards are voted for by the attendees of SPX on Saturday, September the 13th. Towerkind is a 160 page story about the kids of St. James Town, a hamlet of high-rises within the city of Toronto, their subtle powers, and the oppressive warning hinted at by birds and bugs, felt in their bones.
You can buy the collected issues of Towerkind on my storenvy - there’s only a few of these single issue collections left, and I won’t be reprinting.
If you’re an SPX exhibitor interested in reading TOWERKIND please send me an email and I will send you a PDF! katherine.verhoeven@gmail.com

Kat used to be a student of mine so I was tinkled pink to hear her collected series, Towerkind, got nominated for an Ignatz award! She’ll be debuting the collected book at TCAF 2015 with conundrumpresscanada as her publisher. Exciting stuff!

Chilly Tales: Comics From the Canadian Undertundra

Good pals plierpants have edited an anthology of Canadian cartoonists, and Sequential wrote about all the details.

You can also pre-order the book here! 

That cover is a deeee-lightful combo piece by dashobak co-conspirators shinypliers and hyeinpain!

The original pages for Snow are kept in comic page presentation portfolios, and are stored in a dark, dry place, guarded by a snoring old cat, in case they are one day worth a million dollars.

They are stored alongside the original scripts and thumbnail layouts, as well as a few unused pages. This stack of 140+ pages is surprisingly heavy!

This weekend in lovely Nova Scotia…

plierpants:

imageWe’re super jazzed to be heading out to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia this weekend to partake in DCAF 2014. It’s our first time hawking our wares on the East Coast and we’re looking forward to meeting some new people. More info at their website, including the full lineup.

Comics cohort (and Das Hobak co-conspirator) Matthew Daley is going to be selling his wares at the Dartmouth Comic Arts Festival tomorrow, August 17! Go say hi and stroke his magnificent beard!

Our good pal Grover helps us understand Alone With You’s pseudo-3D environments.

Finally, the 8-way walk cycle is done. You can see the sprite scaling effects here.

Corrected the happy walk; now it’s a proper strut.

Maybe this walking animation is a bit too chipper.

In space, no one can hear you read

Here’s an in-progress cutscene from Alone With You.
