Wow, I supremely dropped the ball on posting recently. I guess I just really wanted to enjoy my time with family and friends. And I’m lazy.
I have coincidentally been forming a theme in some comics lately. I’ve developed a new character that I hope to use in a longer running web comic. He’s a kid who is paranoid that he’s being channeled by Satan in his every day life, and he is preparing for the impending doom he thinks is about to come. This stuff is still really new so who knows. Some stuff I know will change, and maybe I wont even keep any of it. Regardless, I’m going to start another web comic series very soon.
I went to a Beyonce party with some friends a week ago and ever since, I've been trying to write a comic or make an illustration about her. I admit that I was superbly inspired by a Pen Ward sketch I saw about Beyonce once, but I feel like mine is still really different. I don't think either of us will ever do Miss Knowles justice in comic form. She's just too fuckin' cool.
Above are two excerpts of a 22x30 comic poster I've been screen printing in my class. The story is about two brothers who try to become internet famous and in turn compromise their brotherly love. I was trying to write a bit more seriously on this one. Also, more updates soon to come on the animation I've been working on!
Baby Cline is still the same online portfolio, formerly known as Alakazander, now just with a cuter name. The days of slaving over how to spell this url are over. Type in babycline.com. Just do it. It feels good.
I participated in a drawing project recently in which I had to sit somewhere for 12 hours in solitary confinement. Some of these characters came from that experience.
