Gun Fu signing, Free Comic Day: May 6th

Rough, done on 8 1/2 x 11 copy paper (by yours truly)

Pencils, blown up and tightened on 11 x 17 bristol board (by you-know-who)

Inks, done with brush and crowquill pen, by Howard Shum

Colors, done digitally by Etienne Simon

On Saturday, May 6th, between 2-4:00 p.m., I'll be at Graham Crackers Comics in Chicago signing copies of Gun Fu: Showgirls Are Forever, doing free sketches for the kiddies, and just plain being my jovial self.

That same day just happens to be Free Comic Book Day!!!!!!!! So if you're in the neighborhood, swing on by, say hi, and get some freebies!

Darryl How do you blow up your penciles? Do you use a scanner and Illuistrator or a good old fasioned xerox? Sorry not much of a speller.

Darryl Young said...

Thanks for the kind words everybody!!!!!

Virginia: E-mail me your address and I'll send you some freebies ;)

Brian: Ha Ha, thanks ;) I try to post at least once a week, with a goal of twice. I'm going to be starting on some comic book projects soon, so hopefully some more roughs and comic booky action type characters will be popping up. I enjoyed what you did with your recent set of prints, posting from concept to final pieces. Felt like I was along for the whole ride. I may do something like that.
I wouldn't mind seeing you run things for day, maybe you could slide over some slush-fund government money my way and I could retire. That way, you'd see me posting more often ;)

Kevin: I like to just use a good old fashioned xerox, there's a Kinko's not far from my house open 24 hours a day. If I need to do only a page or two, then I'll just scan them into Photoshop, enlarge to 11x17, print out two sheets of 8 1/2 x 11, and tape together.

Aw crickets! Free comics and an autograph?! Maybe I'll have to stop by Chicago this weekend.

Dang, everything on this page rules like Charlemagne. Not to take anything away from that Red Sonja, which I would buy a print of in a heartbeat.

And I love watching how you guys put these things together. You're the best, around!
