There's a huge collection of great alternative and underground comics, the  only way to save the economy is by spending up large.

Princess Seppuku Walk Cycle Test



Post #200! Here's a walk cycle test (with an emphasis on test) I made about a year ago, the design is slightly different to the current Princess Seppuku, the cape is too short, the sword should be on her left hip and their should be a cord attached from her belt, the hair pins are also too long, I also think her head is too big. I tried making an animated GIF version but it came out all chunky and shitty, but it's on my tumblr blog if you want to take a look and providing this Flash version works you should be able to see it above. It's all in an effort to produce an animated Princess Seppuku short.

Princess Seppuku Book Two Update


This was the first version of the cover for Princess Seppuku in the Lower Depths, the second Princess Seppuku comic that's due in a few weeks. What's wrong with it? I didn't like repeating the layout from Hunt for Robot-X with the black box in the corner and those skulls are all too uniform, sitting upright and tidy so the entire cover has been redrawn with something else. Thus delaying it but ultimately making it better I would hope. I'll no doubt recycle this art into something else, maybe Slayer would like if for their next album cover?
 Original artwork for this as well as book one will also be available soon too. Come back around December 1st...

Good Cop Bad Cop

Here's an long forgotten abandoned comic strip I did, probably around 2005 at a guess. Possibly intended for animation, it was the misadventures of two police officers...

 [Missing panel of a call coming in and a brief exchange with the chief]



Overload 2012

Just attended Overload 2012, I had no expectations of what to expect so had a great time, I was only selling the first Princecss Seppuku book, sales went well and would do it again next time. Not much in the way of comics, mostly manga/concept illustrators and cosplayers. For those with access to the Princess Seppuku Blog, go check out the commissioned artwork. Not much happened worth writing about, I mostly talked shop with Ant Sang in the booth next to me.
 Next up is Armaggedon Oct 19th - 22nd, hopefully (but unlikely) I'll have Princess Seppuku Book 2 finished or at least a preview copy for orders.

Princess Seppuku Review on VICE

Here's a review of the new Princess Seppuku comic on the VICE magazine website, I think it's accurate. My favourite part "It seems like a disconcerting nightmare".

Jérémie Périn Music Video

Great music video from french director Jérémie Périn who's also doing some amazing short works for MondoMedia (Mystery Boy #3, Detective God). Not as dirty as the thumbnail would suggest but still  NSFW.
