  #744 – spa day

I said the updates would be posted fast and I WASN’T KIDDING. Hope you are strapped in.

While our regular colorist is away, the current arc is being colored by Valerie Halla. I love the color work Valerie has done so far, and I think the story will look pretty excellent with her at the wheel.

Be sure to check out Valerie’s own webcomic, Portside Stories. It’s a sweet story with lovely art about some teens navigating gender. Chapter 1 just wrapped, so you’ll have an easy time catching up!

    Merry Christmas! Hope you’re having a lovely day, wherever you are.

    I try to cobble together a little Christmas comic or animation every year or so, and it doesn’t always happen. So here’s a few Octopus Pie Christmas specials from previous years:

    It’s a Christmas Miserable - A short story from 2011 where Eve is dressed as a Santa for work.

    Octopus Pie Christmas Special 2009 - Reach back into another decade with this animated artifact of time. This ruined the song for me, mostly, but that’s ok.

    Octopus Pie Christmas Special 2013 - A little animation from last year. Eve is depressed! Wow!

    During my two weeks in Denmark teaching at The Animation Workshop, my students created these short stories and websites for their comics.  They were based around a common mythical universe that the students designed.  

    The program was a very intensive one, where the individual needs and skillsets of the students were emphasized.  I loved this method of teaching and hope to apply it to my own classes in New York.

    I think the students did a fantastic job.  You can read their stories here.

    Here are a few sketches for a comic that Mike Holmes and I worked on together, which will be going into Wacom’s Pressure/Sensitivity comics anthology.

    The anthology will feature original short stories by comics creators, including Ming Doyle and Giannis Milonogiannis, with cover art by Ulises Farinas and colorist Ryan Hill.

    Pressure/Sensitivity will be available as a free, 32-page digital comic in January 2015!
