sirjoey-23 :  What does it take to be a comic book artist?

ryanottley:

First it takes someone who not only can draw but who wants to get better so badly that they will obsess about it everyday in their sketchbook and feel the frustration that comes with learning and growing and they will also rise above the inadequate feelings and low confidence and believe in themselves to a point where they are ok with making mistakes and growing from them, they are ok with busting out pages as fast as they can and as best as they can for a deadline. And they are ok with being broke for a while. Being an artist ain’t no joke, you’ll go through a time of being dirt poor. And if you are good/creative enough, and fast enough, and easy to work with enough, then you’ll Probably land a sweet gig. So basically it takes talent plus persistence plus luck. Enjoy.

Batgirl #35 - Babs’ OOTD No. 1 and OOTD No. 2
Here are some fashion illustrations inspired by what Babs was rocking in our first issue of Batgirl! <3  I cant name where these IRL items are specifically (legal stuff!) BUT you can at least check out how her fashions translate from the comic page to IRL and try to track it down yourself! :)  

Babs’ Street Style : Tomboy! 
Lots of people asked about what our approach for Babs’ street style is for this book. For right now, its very tomboy/comfy/cute. Babs’ is dealing with a lot in grad school and fighting crime in her off hours so we figured she would be not the biggest fashionista. She would most 
definitely go for comfy cute before shiny and pink. She never rocks a lot of make or curls her hair before shes goes out the door. BUT Babs’ has got the 5 min makeup routine down and has a hand full of cute go-to hair styles that require minimal effort and can be achieved while running out the door to class! 

Hopefully this is a fun look at the thought process that goes into dressing Babs :)

This happens more times than I’d like to admit

Yup. Usually when I’m stressed.

This happens usually when I start thinking bad things, and let me tell you, it happens a lot

So where’s the art source for the comic? Wasn’t it made by toerning

Hey, Awesome!  I love this comic.  It’s actually the super talented MooseKleenex- http://moosekleenex.tumblr.com/Keep fighting the good sourcing fight, guys! &lt;3

Dead Inside: Do Not Enter — Notes from the Zombie Apocalypse

Dead Inside: Do Not Enter
by Lost Zombies
Chronicle
2011, 160 pages, 8 x 10 x 0.5 inches
$15 Buy a copy on Amazon

Some of my favorite things about zombie movies are the details of the changed world. The dead grass, broken windows, toppled telephone poles, abandoned cars with missing wheels and trunks left open, boarded-up buildings, spent ammo shells, and other signs of struggle and desperation serve to create a fascinatingly creepy environment.

And that’s why I like Dead Inside: Do Not Enter so much. The book consists entirely of letters, hand-written warnings, and pages torn from journal entries that were written during the zombie pandemic. The notes are on matchbooks, napkins, photographs, advertisements, shopping lists, road maps, scraps of cardboard, and gum wrappers. Some of the notes are written with pen and pencil, others are written with lipstick, burnt wood, crayons, and blood.

The messages of the notes themselves tell the tale of the rise of the zombie pandemic, from tentative, joking questions about a “really bad flu,” escalating to confused panic, and later to grim acceptance of the new reality that the survivors now must live in.

In the introduction to Dead Inside, we learn that these notes had been found in a Dora the Explorer backpack. The first note presented in the book was written by the man who killed the owner of the backpack, a girl who was about 10 years old and had been bitten by a zombie (but had not yet turned into one). The man wrote “I opened her backpack and found all these notes and letters. This stuff is poisonous. No one in their right mind should read it. Reading this is like looking into the sun.” – Mark Frauenfelder
