my landlord’s a good guy

i still get a lot of ?s about hand making comics so here’s a little step by step of my tedious process in case you were ever curious

good news re: dog i found the other day: he was reported missing by a family in the neighboring city (got off his lead somehow) so i returned him. good thing too because he has a digestion disorder which requires medication every so many hours or he’s vulnerable to die, his owners were very relieved and grateful he was alive.

his name was gilles so i don’t get a second dog which blows but i’m happy he’s home. ganymede and i will miss him though he was a huge sweetie. lots of thanks to those who offered to help or take him in.

how does this commission thing work?

@authorizedstargazer

it depends on what you want. i think i’m pretty easy to work with, and i’m open to doing anything. here’s a rough guide (but everything & price is negotiable within reason) :

  • if you just want me to draw something for you, depending on how big on how much detail + what you’re using it for, i’m game for anywhere from 15-40 bucks (the steeper end being high detail stuff, tattoo flashes, whatever)
  • if you want to draw a page of comics for you, i start at 25 a page usually, and 15 for each additional.
  • if you want a comic book made for you (anywhere from 10-20 pages with a front and back cover) i usually go from 50-80 dollars, very dependent on how many pages and how much detail/ color/ collage elements you want/ what your subject matter request is/ etc.
  • poster type of work i normally do 40-50 for. 
  • also if you want me to send you the original work in addition to scans, i can and will via express mail for 15 dollars more. which i think is fairly reasonable.

if you’re interested in commissioning me email me (thisishangingrockcomics@gmail.com) describing what you want and giving me some references to work with, and we’ll figure it out. most personal commission work takes me anywhere from a couple of days to a month-ish (if it’s a comic book- because i’m currently working on 4 in addition to personal projects and work) to get done. i like to exchange phone numbers so we can keep in touch and i can send you progress pictures or sketches and outlines before moving forward.

instances where resonating with scripture may actually be sacrilegious 

"tota pulchra es amica mea et macula non est in te" 

i still love song of solomon apparently

genevieve says if by some miracle i don’t find his rightful owner and can convince my landlord into letting me keep him that i need to name him zeus because my other dog’s name is ganymede and she wants a permanent ode to her favorite mythological slash pairing christ what is it with her and pet names

i found a stray on the way home from work tonight, wandering around the whole foods parking lot in the nora shopping center off 86th, around 6 pm. i couldn’t just leave him there- so i have him now. he’s a labradoodle, i think, pretty big with tan coloring, no tags- but from what i can tell he does have his shots and a microchip. he’s incredibly sweet and docile, wasn’t hard to get him into a car or anything. hasn’t barked or been anything other than lovely and complacent.

i know i have a decent amount of followers in the indianapolis area, so if by some far off chance he’s yours, please shoot me an email at thisishangingrockcomics@gmail.com. god knows i would keep him myself but my place has a rule against keeping more than one pet. i’m gonna put up some posters, but if i can’t find his rightful owner i’ll probably just have to take him to the humane society and hope that he finds a good home.

sorry to use my blog as a shoutbox like this- but i figured it was worth a shot.
