Everything Old Is New Again

I'm presently in the midst of working on pieces that are of a more personal explorational purpose, while simultaneously starting the third installment of Funky Porcini.

That said, I'm letting the Store ride as-is with its current stock of original art, that is from what I refer to as "fringe projects." Projects that were done in collaboration with another writer, and/or works done using preexisting "company" characters. 
All of which are priced at such a low rate, I cannot reduce them any lower, or put them on sale.

Then, at some point, I'm going to start adding pages from my own creations, at ridiculously fair prices, as well.

Starting with META 4, I'm going to make available all the pages I still have, one issue at a time.

For example, all of what I have left of META 4 #1, including (if) any extras and whatnot, will be put up in the Store. 

Then, when I am able to do so, will add META 4 #2, and again, anything else that is directly linked to that specific issue.

Once I've run through all five issues of META 4, I'll move onto my series MONDO, and continue the same process of releasing all the original pages, one issue at a time.

Books will be added in the order they were produced.

So, after MONDO will be Miniature Jesus, and then The Superannuated Man.

This is a long-term plan, and impossible to have every issue's art come out with a specific date, or within the exact same amount of time between each title.

I'm going to put each issue up when I can.

It's a big procedure, and will take time.

But, it will happen.

Now, I just need to remember where I put that second head, and two other arms, of mine.

Funky Exodus

The second issue of my absurdist manual, Funky Porcini, is now Sold Out.

Thanks to everyone who purchased a copy, and made this such a successful run.
Your support is much appreciated.

The third edition will be coming out sometime around January/February 2018.

Cycling the Funky

As an artist, I thrive on swerving down paths that are diversively, and divisively, different than whatever came before.

That's exactly what I'm doing with Funky Porcini.

Originally, I set out to make my absurdist manual an artistic outlet that would simply be an exorcise all of the head-yelling chaos that rambles around my insomniatic brain.

But now, with having released the second issue, Funky Porcini has become one of the most wacked out creatively satisfying endeavors I have ever undertaken.

Which means, I'm going to proceed turning up the funkiness, and making each new manual slightly (or not so slightly) different from its predecessor.

Because, even though change is inevitable, when it comes to the creative process, it sometimes can get caught in a cycle that circles back onto itself, developing into a comfort-zone death-spiral routine, and that is a place I will never allow myself to be.

Nothing should stay the same.

Artistic stagnation is creative death.

That all said, the next installment of Funky Porcini should be out towards the end of  January 2018.

In the meantime, I'm in the process of developing some new Funky merch for the Store.
Along with making a substantial amount of original comic art available, at some seriously jazzy prices.

So, come on back around.
I'll be working somewhere over by the dumpsters.
