#Inktober Days 21-22: Treasure & Ghost @inktober

Accounting, amirite?! This brings us to 6 pages.

#Inktober Day 11: Snow @Inktober

Technically, only the last panel is Day 11, but now you get the whole picture.

#inktoberday4: Freeze @Inktober

Like I said, I’m doing Inktober this year as warmup. Unlike the last few years, I’m also using traditional pen and paper. It’s all markers & inks: no pencils. I’m going with almost a rough storyboard style too. Also, a lot of portion people ask about the barbarian galon my convention banner. She was originally a daily doodle. Well, she’s this year’s Inktober project. Enjoy!

The process

A reverse look at my sketch I’m doing for reward fulfillment on the Pablo the Gorilla Kickstarter.

If you missed it yesterday, I was saying…

I have thoughts about the Crow.

Find me at L.A. Comic Con next.

Started from the bottom

Last 48 hours of Pablo the Gorilla on Kickstarter. Can you believe it?!

If you’ve been following the process behind Pablo, you know how much work has gone into creating this comic.

The comic is now waiting its final funding count. It was fully funded after 72 hours and stands at 143% right now. It now is $73 away from hitting $5400 in funding. The second stretch goal (a funding goal that stretches beyond the original amount) is in reach. That goal would produce the first pin design.

We are now in the final 48 hours. It’s been a blast! There are three last stretch goals and a bonus. If you’re in the Los Angeles area and have backed, you’ll love this- a pizza party if Pablo the Gorilla reaches or exceeds 200% funding!

This has been an incredible experience. It’s like living a dream having not only the comic being made but also having two- time, Eisner Award winner Dustin Nguyen creating a variant cover. It’s been a really wild ride this past month. So if you’re a comic book fan, especially of indies, hope you’ll love this one. Like I’ve been saying, “I’m not saying it’s going to be the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but I’m not not saying it either.” 🤣

@Pablothegorilla & the road to 100 #backers on @kickstarter

It has been an amazing week. Pablo the Gorilla funded after 72 hours. That means I head into San Diego Comic-con to promote an already successful campaign. Big thanks to my family, friends and new backers.

However, this is not the end. As the campaign nears the ends of the fourth day we’re at 74 backers. Will we get to 75 by 9 a.m. ?

Pablo the Gorilla is now racing to 100 backers and aiming for 200% backing. Reasonable goals?

If you’re reading this and you haven’t already, join Team Pablo!

Pablo the Gorilla is about an albino, cyborg gorilla that delivers pizza and just wants to live life. However, the government that created him wants their AWOL pet project back. We also discover a mysterious fiend tracking Pablo as well.

If you’ve been following the blog, you’ve no doubt seen all the work behind Pablo. Pablo is coming to life in print, but it’s up to fans to prove to the comics industry that they want to see new ideas from fresh faces. That means successful projects need to have big numbers and creators need followers.

Pledges start at $1, rewards start at $5 with physical rewards at the $12 level. The project even has a variant cover being done by Eisner Award winner Dustin Nguyen of Lil Gotham and Descender! After pledging, leave comments and share! Follow me on Instagram and Twitter!

This is an indie comic inspired by the spirit of books like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Usagi Yojimbo, Tank Girl, Hellboy and the Crow. Mash that up with 90s comics like X-Force or Cyber Force and throw in Mighty Joe Young and Planet of the Apes. Sound up your alley? Join Pablo the Gorilla’s Kickstarter now!

Daily doodle: Smell this

Working through coloring. Here’s another preview, halfway finished.

Daily doodle: Full plate

Trying to keep order on things getting done. Working through coloring Pablo. I have storyboards to get to, posters to finish laying out like this one, blank covers to start working on, and more comics being made. I’m contemplating cutting back on this blog.

If you’re in Los Angeles, don’t forget to find me this weekend at the Comic Bug’s Free Comic Book Day Extravaganza!
