Lengthy interview I did with Newsarama about Southern Bastards, Wolverine & the X-Men & dealing with bumps in the road...
First Look: SOUTHERN BASTARDSSOUTHERN BASTARDS is a new series Jason Aaron (writer of SCALPED, THOR, WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN) and I are doing for Image Comics. I'll post preview images here soon, but for now a first look and word or two about it via USA TODAY:
13 Thoughts About (Comics) Art.I’ve finished working & I’m too wired to sleep so I’m breaking my rule & posting some of the thoughts about art I’ve jotted down lately. If you follow me you already know I’m ridiculous. If not then just know I believe all art advice is usually wrong/a bad idea. Or at least meant to be tested. So I’m in on the joke here…
1: Artists aren’t born or made. They’re cultivated. You ain’t special. Maybe you could be. But probably not. … I dunno maybe you are.
2. Never forget that in comics your serious, heart felt, absurd & torturous thoughts will be voiced by drawings w/squiggly lines for mouths.
3. The important part of the word “realistic” is “istic”. Whatever you do it’s not going to be reality. Only informed by it.
4. Ultimately all art is abstraction. Reality is the boundary you push toward, against or run along side. But even that’s subjective right?
5. At times it’
(ALL NEW) WOLVERINE AND THE X-MENThis March: WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN (vol. 2) #1, by me & Mr. Mahmud Asrar…
REMAINING CON SCHEDULE 2013After ten days of eating, drinking, arguing, creating and laughing myself stupid, NYCC is unfortunately over. My biggest thanks to everyone who treated me so graciously and resisted the overwhelming desire to stab me, be it in my sleep or otherwise. You guys are the best, most restrained, group of deranged psychopathic maniacs ever.
With conventions in mind I thought I'd give everyone a quick reminder of my last two shows of 2013— The first of which is COLA CON, this Saturday in Columbia, South Carolina. This is a more or less local show for me and the rare one where I will actually be tabling. So I hope y'all will stop in and say hi. (BBQ flavored gifts are encouraged). Then, at the end of the month I'll be heading to Italy for the first time to see Rome, Florence and attend LUCCA COMICS AND GAMES FESTIVAL . If you're attending either and would like to get on my commission list, please drop me an email via jaslatour at gmail and we can discuss prices, etc.
Again, these are
THOUGHTS ON COMICS CONVENTIONSSo I wrote a blog on Comics Conventions. How and why I try to navigate them professionally and creatively:

I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.
I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.
I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking
Updates as of October2009: Missing Halloween's story was created. Discontinued.
2010: Attempted to rework in 3D. Failed. Discontinued.
2013: Revived and started the animation production. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2014: Resumed and held a contest. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2015: Resumed. Missing Halloween didn't miss Halloween!
For the past month, me and Negyek were hard at work, day and night, to finish Missing Halloween. Later on, Procrastacat and VenBright were hired to give various voices for the ending scene. All of these are, of course, paid jobs, thanks to my Patreon supporters.
By November 29, the animation is officially done. All 8+ minutes of it.

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way,

The 'FNAF Sister Location' Anti-Hate RantOK, so everyone should have seen Scott's new teaser by now.
I was not going to write about this originally (so forgive me for rushing this journal), since I figured that literally everyone knows about the news by now, but the way people are announcing it and reacting to it disturbs me. I thought we were better than this, but I guess not.
Literally everywhere I go today, everyone I've seen is spamming memes like and saying that Scott is milking the series and beating a dead horse. Even people who have "left" the FNAF fandom and have decided to pop back in just to put in their discouraging, even hating, opinions. It's so bad, that I feel people are hating JUST because it has become cool to hate, as some kind of herd mentality.
Well guess what? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks! Scott is clearly going to do what Scott is going to do! The amount of hate th
