claudetc:

Joz (mildtarantula) and I like making up team names. We’re Team Sneak now.

Come and see us at the Comica Comiket at the British Library (capital letters) in August maybe. Should be a bunch of indie talent there and it’s easier to get to than previous shows. Plus the comics unmasked exhibition will be on it’s last weekend, so if you like museumy gubbins, there ya go.

Do not believe stupid stupid journos who say comics are an outdated art form that deserve to be replaced by videogames, the people who write those articles probably engage in deviant behaviour, either linked or not linked to barn animals. nobody knows.

team sneak is go!!!
this is the next show claude and i will be at! it’s also the day before my birthday.

a quick drawing of suul when she was a witch.
sorry i haven’t been around much lately, i’ve been busy with freelance work. there is no way i’ll have hemlock #5 done by autumn, but! i’m planning on making a hemlock sketchbook type of deal to debut at SPX. if you have any suggestions on what kind of things you’d like to see in it, let me know! i’m thinking things from hemlock that won’t necessarily come up in the story, like how everyone looked as kids, or suul’s original incarnation here.

alright, so i’m giving this a test run! i find it impossible to do sketches at cons and be a salesperson at the same time, so instead, i’m offering A5 b&w ink pre-convention commissions at a special price of £10 each, with the original to be picked up at MCM Expo. all my commission details are here! last orders 20th May. closed early because freelance work came up. thank you everybody that took up the offer!
this is my current convention plan for the year, if this works i’ll offer it again for future cons:
MCM Expo, London 23 – 25 May
LFCC (with Zukes Comics), London 12-13 July
Comica Comiket, London 16 August
SPX, Bethesda, MD 13-14 September
MCM Expo, London October (TBC)
Thought Bubble, Leeds 15-16 November

kikimora character turnaround for an MA application portfolio i’ve been working on.

here’s a question i was wondering if anyone had the answer to! since my computer had its meltdown in january it won’t let me use CS4 anymore so i moved to CS6, but when i resize images it sometimes leaves this lighter line between the lineart and the colours (you can see it on kiki’s hair here) whether i do bicubic automatic or sharper or whatever. what’s with that?

thanks for the answers guys! looks like bilinear is the way to go.

don’t jinx it…
thank you for all your lovely comments last week everyone! you’re all so patient with me (◡‿◡✿) i hope you’ll be patient with this scene too, it’s one of those that really needs to be read all in one go i’m afraid..

selling things again! help me get to SPX!

hey everybody, i’m being ~that guy~ again.
i got into SPX! it’s gonna be my first convention outside of the UK, i’m pretty excited! but with my computer still on the verge of death and airplane tickets this is gonna be an expensive year, so i’m selling a bunch of stuff.

this is mainly aimed at UK people and people i know irl, because international shipping gets pricy, but if there’s something you really want shoot me an email at mild.tarantula@gmail.com and i’ll let you know how much shipping would be!

or if you don’t see anything, please help out by sharing this!
