START OF THE AFTER SCHOOL SAGA!

New story started now! Read the previous post on GLab Worldbuilding here (link).  if you want a little backstory but this takes place after GLab 6 and before GLab 7. It’s set a little earlier in the timeline and fills out some spots in the narrative (what little there is! HA!)

2016.01.22 Michelle Saga – The End!

END OF THE MICHELLE SAGA…

Well, as you all know this isn’t War and Peace so when I say end I mean the end of the drawings. HA! I did make it seven pages long this week to buff out the rather strange train of thought I was taking.

Enjoy and NEW SERIES NEXT WEEK!!!

2016.01.20 Growth Lab World Building Part 1

**Growth Lab World Building – Only Read if you are interested in the backstory of the Growth Lab and some of the characters. Otherwise this might be super boring to you!**

So we are about to start up a new story set in the Growth Lab Universe. I’m going to lay down some of the backstory and wanted to put out fair warning for those who actually track the characters and how they interact. Some of you might be interested and many of you likely do not care. THAT IS FINE! HA!

First off, let’s be honest – the GLab stories tend to revolve around ways to show BE/GTS. That’s not to say there’s no story but the original impetus way back when was to just draw women growing. Nothing more, nothing less. Most of the early work and even work now is a LOT of disjointed moments and huge non-sequiturs. I’ll try to reveal some of the thinking as best I can so bear with me. It may not make sense or it may give you some “ah-ha” moments.

After School – the latest story starting up. This is a tale intended to come after Growth Lab 6 and before Growth Lab 7. It’s called “After School” since it represents the graduating class Naomi was in and their summer after high school ends. After Prom Night as they call it (which was the end of GLab 6). Benton is in it (so brace yourself if you are not a fan). We find out he has been fired from his position at school and is looking for work elsewhere. While this is a somewhat Benton-centric story at first it does delve into the first introduction of Hannah and Luna into the timeline. Now they do show up in later stories (Hannah in GLab 7 and Luna in GLab 11 at the very end) but this would actually be their chronological intro.

The idea here is Luna and Hannah have been working to create some sort of super energy serum that has mutated and created the growth epidemic. Hannah wants this formula for creating super soldiers (ala Captain America) and Luna wants to use it for an energy source to power various scientific breakthroughs (like her teleportation machine). They are both working on separate projects within the government. What part of the government you ask? Well, I always pictured Hannah and Luna working with the Army branch. Luna being off doing more esoteric things with her funds while constantly promising these awesome breakthroughs for Army research.

So, back to the story. About half way through we find out Luna and the army have developed a method to safely remove dangerous energy emissions by use of an artificially created crystal. This thing can absorb energy safely but as you know – things don’t always go so well. I do like the wrap up of this particular story and I think you will too. It hopefully adds a bit to the world and also has a lot of my newer and arguably better style.

Hope you enjoyed this little backstory and I will post more of these if there is any interest. I do tend to have some small amount of reasoning going on when I draw but I know it doesn’t always show! HA!

2016.01.17 New Beginning Preview Page

As per usual I want to share some of the upcoming work with you! Here is a page from down the line, specifically it’s from a story called “New Beginnings”. We get to see a mass growth episode and during part of it a government group (naturally) is caught in a semi giant state. Well, to make due they end up making temp clothing from the available supplies. I ended up liking the look of the constructed clothes a lot.

A pretty good example of my current style in a fairly cleaned up panel. yes folks, I can draw clean lines when I have a bit of time. HAH!

Enjoy and talk with you soon!

2016.01.15 Michelle saga update- five new pages!

One more week and it’s over! What exactly that means for one of my stories you can only guess. After next week we move onto a newer story drawn and finished up mid-2015. I think you will really enjoy it as it has a lot of nice pages and cool moments. In fact I have been referring back to it a few times during my current commission work.

Enjoy,

2016.01.11 FOUR YEARS! Ready Art Zone!

Can you believe it has been four years since the Ready Art Zone started? Time has flown so damn fast.

Hope you are all enjoying the site and the changes. I think some of the recent ones like removing the registration requirement have really helped more people access the site and hopefully spread the word about the place.

Much more to come but thank you so much for your support. It means a lot to me and I hope to continue to bring you my best!

Merry Christmas and HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

**Michelle Update News** The Michelle story is only on hold for one more week. On January 1st (or around that time) the Michelle story will resume with five pages!

Opening Night Redo_010.jpg

Now we have the Opening Night Redo pages going up here and on the Patreon. Patreon gets the high res versions of course but we are otherwise synced up.

Opening Night! A series I drew nearly 20 years ago and at the time I felt pretty damn pleased with myself. Well, though that smug contentment has long passed I have always liked this series. Some neat ideas and a lot of what would later be known as my signature stuff. Check it out and see what you think. I have done some side by side comparisons and I am pretty happy with the new coat of paint.
