RAWRweekly: A Black Snowy New Year!

Hello all and welcome to 2012’s first RAWRweekly. An outstanding surprise presented itself this week, in the form of a package from my friend and partner in crime Michael Balisteri. For those who don’t know (or haven’t been paying attention), Michael is the artistic maniac who runs Black Snow Comics together with comic genius Alex Siquig. I’ve […]

RAWRyearly: 2011 in Review

Yea, I know what you’re probably thinking. Not another bloody year in review piece, just like the other 9 million similar articles that’ll be made this week. But don’t worry, I’ll try not to make a habit of this. 2011 is an important year for RAWRtacular I feel, and I’d like to mark it’s ending with […]

RAWRweekly: The Greatest Advert in the World….Ever!

Welcome back to this week’s late-as-usual RAWRweekly. When I first started writing this article, I was going to go on about my efforts to market RAWRtacular, and how they were failing. It was a very negative piece, and I couldn’t bring myself to finish it. In a nut-shell, I was disheartened that my readership hadn’t […]

I’m Famous in Japan – Page 9!

Hello and welcome another page of I’m Famous in Japan! I *had* a good system in place a while ago to get one of these pages out at roughly the same rate as Back Office pages, but the time I’ve needed for that has been in short supply lately. I’m going to be bringing a […]

RAWRweekly: Scandinavian Winter

The weekend has arrived! Time for yet another belated RAWRweekly. I few things to report this time round. First off, Bata Neart is in full swing and is picking up some modest readership, mostly thanks to inkOUTBREAK. Since we’re still in the prologue, I’m not going to put so many resources into marketing the comic […]

Bata Neart Begins: The Twilight Years…

Hello and welcome to Part 4 of Bata Neart Begins. By the end of 2006, I had been a few months back from living in China. Furthermore, Bata Neart’s first shot at publication had been and gone. Artistically, I had started to feel like I was falling into some kind of limbo. I did continue […]

I’m Famous in Japan! – Page 8

It’s that time again… No not for the Wheel of Morality (more like the Wheel of Immorality in this comic), but for another blogging about an I’m Famous in Japan page. <The Wheel is reference to Animanics. In case you are too young to know that.> This is a sort-of continuation from the last page, as you’ll […]

Bata Neart Begins: China and YesIF Magazine

Welcome to Part 3 of ‘Bata Neart Begins’. Throughout much of my time drawing Manga-style comics, I had harbored fantasies of having my work becoming actual Anime. I had even gone so far as to believe that I could go to Japan, get work with a production company (somehow) and make those fantasies real. It would not […]

RAWRweekly: Countdown to Bata Neart

Hello all, It’s been a busy week, and next week will be even busier. As I’ve posted on RAWRtacular’s social media lately, Bata Neart will actually launch this coming Friday the 28th of October. I’m having weird sort of feeling about that. In one respect, I’m really excited about this but otherwise I’m more relieved. I […]

Bata Neart Begins: A story is born

Hello and welcome back to Part 2 of Bata Neart Begins! By late 2003 to mid-2004, it had been a long while since my last new comic attempt. I had spent half a year living in Norway as an exchange student, and in that time my Eden comic had come to a crashing halt. When […]
