Jade Negotiates

The Albuquerque Comic Expo was a smashing success!   So many new readers, new friends, and new facebook fans.  Thank you all!

This print is called “Jade Negotiates”.   You can get it at the SLC market, Park Silly Market and conventions.  The prequel to this is “Jade Contemplates Negotiating”, but it is in sketch form at the moment.

Before & After

We’re often asked about the process of creating the art work to tell the story.  Brady comes up with the ideas, draws concept sketches, finalizes one and inks it by hand.  Then he colors the image in photoshop (or sometimes Felicia does that), adds all the shading, the special effects, and voila!   Here’s an example from the cover of Issue 3.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes the backgrounds are made with photographs Felicia takes, like the sky on this cover.
