Update

The group has been quiet, but I think that's because we're all obscenely busy.

Last month I wrote the first 3 issues for the ambitious 60 issue story arch I have planned with kmc_geijyutsuka We're probably gonna do a one-shot of a different story together first. That script is all done, and sitting somewhere on her to do pile. Month before that I did the flats for a Zuda submission that she drew.

orangebluecream 's book is on hold due to a printing issue. I'd switch to a different print on demand company, but comixpress is the only one I've found that does custom sizes. We're considering doing something similiar to www.thedreamlandchronicles.com

I'm taking a break from comics this month to try to get my budgetting book out. But once that's done, I'm gonna hit the 60 issue story hard and try to get all the scripts done in advance. Then I can do flatting and lettering after the pages are drawn.

Just posted a new gallery..

Hey guys and gals,

Just posted a new gallery from our series releasing in the Spring. If you have an iPhone it's available now on iTunes at http://tinyurl.com/kws2md. We also have a facebook fan page at http://www.facebook.com/armyofhaven.

Hope you have an awesome weekend! Lenny

Geek Media Expo

I never find out about these things until last minute, but the first GMX is this weekend.  Never heard of GMX con?  Well this is the first one...

I do like their webdesign.

I am more than underwhelmed that their guest list includes "Convention Vixens" (seriously?).  Many of the other guests look pretty interesting.  I think I've seen some of the Nostaligia Critics stuff, funny guy.  I do find it kind of cool that they have so many behind the scenes people, including an ENTERTAINMENT EXEC.  I hope someone's taping so I can see how he handles the Syfy question.

Are you the next Mark Twain?

Contest at Borders:

I'm thinking about entering...not sure.  Right now money would be a more tempting prize than 10 seconds of fame...but might be good to try just for the exercise of it if nothing else.

I'm tentatively planning a comics and coffee meeting for May 1st.  I'll try to get details up before the end of the week.
April 3rd-5th, MTAC is back and at the Sheraton Music City hotel this year. Official website: http://www.mtac.net

The Art tract includes "Creating Your Own Manga Comic - Process and Design Tips"  and there's lots of Manga, Anime, and general Japanese fun.





The Orange and Blue Cream shop is GO!





Ashley has start posting preview images of Orange and Blue Cream on her deviant art blog.  The shop is my end of things.  It's a work in progress, but I think we've got some great designs up.

Comics and Coffee anyone?

Okay the NCC died for a while.  It shrunk to simply the yahoo group.  Meetings and the LJ community were left in the dust.

But we miss it, so we're trying to bring it back in a new form.  The thought at the moment is to start having monthly meetings at some locations like Starbucks.  Possibly rotate them around Nashville, because distance issues were part of what killed the group the first time around.  We'll be making announcements here as to when/where meetings will be held once we figure it out..

If you're interested feel free to chime in here with time/place suggestions.  All that we ask is that you have some interest in MAKING comics, either as a writer or artist or editor, and live in/near Nashville.


The good news is many members of the old group have still been busy Making comics.  Ashley and I are going to be debuting her Orange and Blue Cream comic sometime in the next few months (the plan is April).  We redesigned her website for it (http://www.amoebadreams.net/Ashley).

Chris and Erica Well have debutted their new strip The Best Mann for the Job.

Erica is giving a talk at the Nashville Artist Guild meeting this weekend (it's free).


I found this http://collectorsexpo.info/
Haven't had a chance to attend though.  Anyone been to one?  Thoughts?

October 20th is the big day

 October 20th is 24-hour comic day!

It's also the day our APA stuff is due.  Fate I think.  So warm up for 24-comic day by making something for the APA.

We're ba-ack!

HOTTEST SUMMER EVER....at least for Nashville.  But it's finally over, and we're ready to kick back into meetings this weekend.

Come.  Bring friends....or likeable acquaintences.  Just don't bring your enemies that always turns ugly... unless they draw/write/layout really well...then go ahead and bring 'em.
 
Also, KMC has a lovely new design up on our Cafepress shop http://www.cafepress.com/amoebadreams/3663889   It's purdy.  You should buy something.  Christmas is only 4 months away!
 
Speaking of Christmas, Sam's awesome Mary/Joseph/Baby Jesus drawing is still up http://www.cafepress.com/amoebadreams/2515037


Even though this is a 3rd week (and in theory we'd have a writers activity).  Let's try to do an artist activity this week.  Bring your sketch books!  We'll try to get a volunteer to model for us for ten minutes.  Maybe swap up.

So it'll be a bit like a figure drawing class without the embarassing nudity.

If you're playing along at home, try to get a friend or family member to pose for you.  If no one will, you could use a picture, a mirror, or go to a public place a mall.  Just try to limit yourself to ten minutes.
 
We are a group of artists and writers with a common interest in creating entertaining comics
as a medium of self-expression, recreation and education. Our goal is to inspire, critique,
and encourage one another so we all grow artistically as individuals and as a group.

We welcome members of all ages, backgrounds, styles and skill levels interested in active participation of this goal. Since we welcome younger members (as well as old fogies), we keep all common-shared APA material All-Ages appropriate.
