these are mainly dumb sketches i posted on twitter or tumblr, i tried to scan up some more but my scanner is being crap
me and a couple of other people are making a comic full of comics called “attic”. i contributed this page and “bark” from a couple of years ago.
you might have seen these comics from the rss feed or somewhere else weird a couple of month ago — i was trying to do some nerd things with the backend of the blog and i uploaded the draft version of these as test pages. i tried to make them hidden but apparently there were still ways to see them. if you did see them, can you let me know how/where, so that i can fix it?
in other news i’m making a videogame with my friend jack – i’m doing the artwork and some programming, while he’s doing the serious back end programming stuff. i’ll keep ya updated when we’ve got some progress. should be fun!
i’ve been doing comics comics for my university’s newspaper as something in the background.
this next one i guess is a shitty homage to kc green, please don’t stab me
i’ve been working on another part of the site, /comics/, which will have longer, bigger comics listed there rather than just on the blog. i’m attempting to move over from sketches and doodles to actual comics. this time last year i made bark and the outcome was pretty satisfying. already listed is a short stupid comic called gregory peck
in the works is another one, which will hopefully be up here soon.
it’s been a while, and i apologise. every time i want to do upload something i end up realising that something frustratingly important is there stopping me. either that or laziness, who can tell.
i seem to start quite a few of these blog posts with apologies, and i’m sorry for that
that bald man comic was originally part of a small challenge i set myself to make a loads of little comics in a short period of time, like kc green (gunshow guy) and anthony clark (nedroid guy) and christopher rieneman (feel afraid guy) and probably a bunch of other cartoonists have done. i made about 50, but like an idiot i drew them too small with a pencil too light, so after scanning them it’s really hard to read them. i’m planning to redraw them and they’ll be up when i get round to it
also i’ve been thinking about setting up a tumblr / changing zappablamma.tumblr to be just a collection of my warmup sketches and doodles, unfinished and nasty. this way it’s easy for me to update, and it’s easier for you guys to see terrible things like these:
so do you wanna see more unfinished sketches like those? i don’t know, let me know
also another cool thing: 3 years ago i made this cartoon of a monster talking to his wife, and a couple of months ago a guy from a band called HEY YOU GUYS! asked me to touch it up a bit for them to use for their album artwork! so that happened, and it was nice
here’s a quick cartoon i rushed out for my student newspaper before christmas. that reminds me: merry christmas
people have been saying i don’t update zb enough, so i’ve started to put sketches and stuff on twitter which is quite fun, go look at that and ‘follow’ it etc
