APRIL FOOLS

March 18, 2010

I’ve had an idea in me head that I’ve been meaning to implement for centuries….well, not so much as centuries but definitely years.  Come April Fools Day I will be dong something special on the BUBBAWORLD COMIX web site.  I’m not telling what it is but it was inspired by April Fools Day, It will involve the CAPN’ GEEZER comic strip title…mainly because it is always on Thursdays and so is April Fools Day this year….. and I plan to do this event every year.

Now some of you may be thinking that it’s all an April Fools joke and nothing happens that day and I yell gotcha.  That isnt going to happen.  It is an actual EVENT that I’m planning.  It’s very cool and even cooler if you read the web page every day before then.  So…go to BUBBAWORLD COMIX and read you some comics.  Come April Fools Day you wont regret it… unless of course I’m lying…. which I’m not.

Change

March 14, 2010

The only constant in the universe is change….nickles , dimes, quarters , pennies…..I’m not sure why.  Anyway, speaking of change, I’ve been redesigning my website BUBBAWORLD COMIX with a whole new look.  I’m rather proud of it  if I do say so meself.  I centered the comic and put things down both borders.  I changed up the header a little too.  I even changed the way I’m selling my books.  Some may think I’m taking steps backwards but I dont know.  I removed my paypal buttons and put up the prices of the books and a request to email me at bubbaworldcomix (at) gmail (dot) com is you wanted one.  And also I would be taking checks and money orders.  I’m old fashioned.  I dont like all this computer automation.  I’d rather have a little human interaction.  So I’m rejecting technology while at the same time embracing it.  Lets face it, I’m doing a web comic.  Although technology and myself are uneasy allies at best I still have to utilize it just to show my comic to the world via the world wide web.  There are still lots of folks out there that probably dont trust their cards to the internet or just dont use cards.  They can buy books from me.  If you have to use the credit cards and such then I still have a paypal account.  You can still use it.  It just wont be automated.  You’ll actually have to contact me , the person you’re doing the transaction with.

ZOMBIE SMURFS

March 6, 2010

BUBBAWORLD COMIX updates daily.

If you’ve read the previous blog then you know I was requested to draw some zombie smurfs for someone at the Artist Summit in Biloxi.  It was so much fun that I decided to draw more zombie Smurfs , only on sketch cards.  This time I colored them with some color pencils.  I must admit that I was rather pleased with the result.

I’ve sent the entire set to a local comic book shop (with in a 2 hr drive is local in this case) to hang up in there store for sale.  I think thru my face book page that it might already have a buyer ready to get it.  I’m selling these as a 9 card set.

Here are the cards before I colored them in.  I may start coloring in more sketch cards.  I tend to stay away from colors due to my colorblindness.  That’s right….I’m a color blind artist.  Red and Greens give me problems , and any color associated with them.  I tend to mix them up quite a bit.  I also tend to get them correct some of the time.  That’s the confusing thing….If it was wrong all the time I might be able to figure it out easier, but I actually watch some things change colors depending on the distance between me and them and as I get closer or farther away.  It’s actually pretty cool sometimes.

Pop Culture Art Summit 2

March 2, 2010

This past weekend was a blast, I’ll tell you what.  What’s better than a bunch of cartoonists/artists getting together and hanging out all weekend and all day Saturday at a Comic Book Store and drawing all day?  Nothing, that’s what, nothing is better than that.  It was the POP CULTURE ART SUMMIT in Biloxi/Saint Martin this past Saturday at the 3 Alarm Comic Book Shop.  Friends of ours from the Jackson area showed up right before me and my buddy did…

….and we just hung out at the shop with the owner, Scott , for the rest of the day.  We all came down a day early.   As I put the pictures up just be sure to pay attention to the walls with all the original artwork on them.

We met another Web Cartoonist from the coast, which is pretty cool.  As I’ve said before , “Mississippi web cartoonists are not abundant in the wild and only a few still live in captivity.”

His site is at  http://www.neo-earth.com/ so be sure to check it out.

Mitch showed up and then it was a party.  We all hung out talking comics and art while checking out each other’s comic art.  Mitch worked on some pages and just inspired the rest of us.  His work is awesome.  If you dont know who Mitch Byrd is then you probably dont know what comics are either.

A bunch of us went down the road to this great all you can eat Italian/pizza place to hang out even more and just pig out on pizza and pasta.  I myself stacked up a multi layered  pile and called it the “Leaning tower of Pizza.” 

there were plenty of artists and people and even tacos provided by the store for the artists.  I loved every minute of it.  Hanging out with old friends and making new ones and reminiscing with people that I had just met.

I was in the back….well except for this picture …. I left to take pictures didnt I.  Hard to take pictures of yourself when you’re not where you were.

Here’s Steven Butler with his art and his “the Mind of Mikey McBean” book.  I got one and I read it.  I suggest yall get one too if you can.  There’s another web cartoonist from the coast I met on the left of the picture.  I’m still looking for where I put the address to his site.  I’ll post it here when I find it cause he had some good stuff.  He should have grabbed a table and joined us, actually.  Maybe next time.

Somebody requested I do Zombie Smurfs…..Of course I did it.  I’m drawing more now.  Sketch cards even.

All the artists there did a jam piece for the owner.  I took this picture before it was finished….there was more done to it after this.  This was a great weekend.  Great Host, great artists , great crowd.  I enjoyed the mess out of it.  I even got to visit with me Aunt that I dont get to see too often.  I plan to show up on the coast again at some time.

I will be at the Heroes & Dreams on free comic book day the first Saturday of May, the 1st, 2010.  The weekend after that there should be an artist summit in Meridian.  I dont have all of the information to put in this blog now but will make another blog about it closer to the time.  I’ll be doing the same for Free Comic Book Day also.  I actually plan to be at Heroes and 3 Alarm again before then.  It’s cool to have some cool comic book shops to hang out at….especially if you’re a cartoonist.
