New York Comic Con!

Well, NYCC is over and where to begin? Short answer: it was awesome; full of frenzied drawing and meeting wonderful people, some of whom may be reading this post right now. 

If so, first pop over to Rare Earth Comics where you can see other great works by my partners in inks.  But also, while you're here, take a gander at some of my other, older works off to the righthand side in the "pages" section
only my biggest fans get the free hugs

to the right, sitting Chewbacca, is the unstoppable Dave Robles, who knows to smile for pictures

Also, if you want to reach out, you should know most comic artists (myself included) are, despite being super busy, also super approachable.  So leave a comment or shoot me an email (carlmeff@gmail.com) and let me know what you think of my work or ask any questions you may have.

Speaking of super approachable, and in this case, wonderful, comic artists, I got a couple of great portfolio critiques from Russ Braun and Daniel Krall, they were both wise, generous with their time and amazingly talented.  At the risk of turning new readers onto much better artists, go check out their work.

here's me again, hiding behind comics.. oh the metaphors
That's all I have to say for now.  Pictures from the con abound on REC's facebook page, here it is again! Thanks from the bottom of my heart to everyone who bought a drawing or is reading our work.  Giving your precious time and money in such a chaotically competitive environment is the greatest flattery to our art. Til next time...

JoyRiders promotion flyer (1st draft)

I've wrapped up the first version of my JoyRiders promotion flyer for the NYCC (New York Comic Con)
it's meant to draw in new readers through sheer intrigue without sounding like a straight-up pitch.
this is a double-sided 11x17 flyer, left-hand has one side, right-hand has the other.

It's also supposed to connect with an object from the story itself, which I thought was kinda cool...
look at the last panel

Anyways, I'd welcome any input anyone has towards making this a better tool for getting more eyes on my webcomic.  Needless to say, I'll be printing a ton, so if you want one, just ask.
