October is...

October is babyloss awareness month, and I never even knew.
Across the globe everyone affected by the death of a baby, stands up and speaks out, and I never even knew.
Unless it happens to you, or someone close to you, how would you know?

I know now, and I want you to know too. Not for my…

Comix Warriors Week #52:  Make the 1st Page of your Graphic Novel
Submissions open from 09/24/14 - 10/07/14, due at 11:59pm EST. Not sure of the time? Check the countdown timer on the blog’s main page!
Congratulations, Warriors! We’ve made it to week 52, which means Comix Warriors has been been updating for a whole year! WOWZERS! Thank you all for following, submitting, and generally being awesome. I hope we will just continue to grow. 
To honor our anniversary, this will be a special TWO WEEK challenge! A lot of us have lofty comix goals, including creating our very own, full-length graphic novel. Since Comix Warriors was created as a foundation for cartoonist-wannabes to get their start, I want to use it to encourage you all to take the next step and start working on an even bigger project! You’ve got two weeks to really sit back, think about what you’d want to see as a big ol’ 100 pg+ book, and draw something truly page-turning. The subject matter and characters are completely up to you! Since this is meant to be just the first page, it doesn’t even have to make sense as a story. This is a totally freestyle challenge.
The same rules apply as always, and of course I am not expecting EVERYONE to submit gorgeous full-color Sandman style illustrations, but since you’ve got two weeks I hope you will all give this challenge as much effort as possible. Happy comicing! 
Quick Rules Recap: 
01. Submissions must be 1 page or less, and please try to limit pages to 2000px tall or less.
02. Submissions must relate to the current week’s challenge.
03. Submissions must be suitable for PG-13 audiences (see here for more info on this.)
04. All submissions must be original and made specifically for this challenge.
Please use the submit feature to post your comic when you’re done!
Questions? Read the FAQ and other info on the left side of the blog. Or send me an ask if you need to and I’ll be happy to let you in on the comix secrets.

This challenge is scary. Bring it on!

I’m actually still doing a lot of editorial work, I just keep forgetting to upload any of it! Here’s a comic I did for the New York Times Private Lives column back in July, thanks to AD Nathan Huang. I’ll upload more pieces later!


Beautiful.

I think I&#8217;ve fallen in love with running. It&#8217;s awful to start with and you definitely want to die, but then something clicks, and you CAN keep going. You just have to decide to. Kind of like grief, kind of like life.

I drew this just for a commission example, but was pretty darned proud of how he came out - especially now that I&#8217;ve fixed the chin/jaw!
But really, with that chiseled physique and angelic smile&#8230; what&#8217;s not to like, right?
