Faith Erin Hicks graciously gave me an original, gorgeous page from her ATLA Free Comic Book Day issue for Dark Horse. I love her inking style, so this is a real treat to see up close.

That’s Eisner winner Faith Erin Hicks now! :)

findanewequation:

So for the last four months or so, I have taken part in the body positivity movement on Instagram, including posting photos of myself in my bikini and underwear/bra. Keep in mind that none of my photos have ever been sexually explicit or suggestive and that I have always been fully covered. As far…

Bravo to you for tackling the stigma of body image head on.

Shame on you, instagram. Shame.

Ms Marvel recently went to its sixth printing, a rare accomplishment in comics today.

But chatting with Marvel executives at San Diego Comic Con I discovered more. That it sells more in digital than print, and that includes the first issue.

Most titles sell around 10-20% of their print sales in digital. Digital first and licensed books often sell far more. But books like Ms Marvel, and Top Cow’s Think Tank, are a little more of an anomaly in that regard.

And are possibly, the future…

True to its name, the fruiting body of the painted suillus (Suillus spraguei) looks like a beautiful impressionist sunset. When you see one, take a step back and look at the nearby pine trees. This fungus’ underground tendrils intertwine with pine roots, taking moisture and other substances and giving the trees a wider net through which to gather nutrients.

Thanks for posting this. My inner mycologist is jumping for joy! :)

Tuesday Tips - FOLDSMore on folds today. I will eventually cover all types of folds but today is about simple folds on everyday clothes (t-shirt, jeans). The key is to know what to expect and then applying what you know to simplify what you see in front of you (when life drawing). A lot of the folds dynamics on shirts and jeans come from the “memory” of the fabric itself. Denim is thick and is likely to keep some form of wrinkles or folds around certain areas (knees). A lot of zig-zag patterns around the knee is very likely. When pushed down on the feet, the denim fabric will bunch up and combine with the zig-zag pattern. Shirts and t-shirts will react to the twist and pull of the arms and torso. Identify where the pull (or tension) is coming from and work from it. I tend to draw the seams because they clearly express the volumes underneath.Norm

I ALWAYS need folding tips!

THE IRON GIANT
The Iron Giant Collectible FigureThe 16″ tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable “S” to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the “War” version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.
