Working Hard And Hardly Working

I’m clocked out of my day job and clocked into my dream job, finalizing the script and layouts for the JTFH Origin Issue, and turning out some finished panels for a vignette that I hope to post later, along with some cover artwork for forthcoming tales and adventures. Right now, though, I’m grabbing some greasy taco sustenance at Los Jilbertos in Murrieta, and then will pop next door to Ryan’s Comics to pick up some action packed mental sustenance for this arduous day of comic book making. Seriously, I’d do this for free if they paid me…Or something like that.

If you’re reading this, thank you, and I hope you’ll swing by later for some of the stuff I mentioned above.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Next phase of the image:

I imported a photo I took with my phone and started the digital inking process in Procreate. I’ll wrap up the rest of the ion and paint there, then take it over to Illustrator for bubbles and lettering.

Chrome Magnon Man

Working up a new character and cover composition for another entry into the JTFH canon of awesomeness. This is a giant robot caveman, designed by one of Jed’s many arch nemesii, The Misanthropologist. Fabricated from spare parts in the local community college’s metal shop and engineering department, Chrome Magnon Man is a twenty foot tall pre-human monster. I’ll be taking this to paint later, with lots of expository dialogue and thought bubbles to bring this fella to visual/literary life.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Tools Of Creation

I’ve got the day off from my day job, and I’m clocked in for another sixteen hour shift at my unpaid dream job of writing, drawing, and enacting all other verbs germaine to the creation and publication of comic books. I’ve got a couple of images that I’ll be posting later of Jed The Flying Head, fighting Nazis and engaging himself in some science based psychedelics. 

So, stay tuned, and as always…Thanks for stopping by!

PS: I posted a new review of some current comics on my comic book blog. You can check it out at:

Here is a one page story entitled, My Dinner With The Diarrheacher.  There are a lot more vignettes to come!  But I need to go to bed now, or I’ll be in trouble.
Good night!

About that comic book blog I mentioned…

Well, I went ahead and did it.  While it may confuse my followers to have yet another conduit into which I disseminate more information and ideas, I thought it would be best at this time, given the amount of work I am doing to breathe life into the Jed The Flying Head canon of material and keep potential employers from being confused by the mix of comic book content I post with some regularity to this blog, and my personal portfolio/art blog.  

If you would like to check it out, you can do so by clicking this link to thepanellist.tumblr.com.  I added the extra “L,” not because I don’t know how to spell, but for an added bit of wordplay and because the same title, which incorporates the correct spelling, has already been taken.  So, anyone looking for that blog may stumble upon my own and be treated to an eyeful of comic book stuff that I find interesting, amazing, fantastic, uncanny, superior, spectacular, web of, and any other adjective regularly used to describe a comic book character and the content relative to their existence.

Thanks very much for stopping by, and for bearing with me through this splitting of the atom, as it were.  This just ensures that I can continue to talk about the sequential art that inspires me while still providing you happy few with the unadulterated Jed The Flying Head content you have asked for by clicking the follow button.

Thank you.

Raiding the $1 bin at Ryan’s Comics in Murrieta, on this beautiful, seemingly unseasonably hot Southern California day. I’m thinking I may start a subsidiary blog to talk about the comics I buy/read, and would have done so right now if the tumblr iOS app allowed the creation of new blogs, but I’ll just have to wait until I get home.

I just made a similar post on my primary art blog, but stated there that I’d have more details here, where they rightfully belong, at the official Jed The Flying Head web presence.  All things considered, Jed is also available at his official website, www.jedtheflyinghead.com, as well as at a secondary blog site, but the tumblr site is so much easier to update when legitimate news is in the offing.  And this is most certainly news, so heads up:
Some of you may recall that last year, I had made made available a Jed The Flying Head Free Comic Book Day Extravaganza.  This was met with a fairly modest reception from the viewing/reading/downloading public, or at least, it seemed to be, based off the amount of feedback I got on it, which was none.  None at all.  That selfsame Extravaganza may still be available for download to the canny user who has time enough to scroll through the archives of this blog, and you’re welcome to it.  It was free then, and it’s free now, but that’s not what I came here to talk about.
No.
This year, I am embarking on a similar endeavor.  The above image is a rough page that I will be taking to clean up for the 2014 Jed The Flying Head Free Comic Book Day Extravaganza.  I should state here if nowhere else that I am in no way affiliated with the Free Comic Book Day organization, however, I do stand fully behind what they are about and applaud their efforts to bring free, sequential art entertainment to the masses on the first Saturday of May every year.  This will be my 5th year celebrating what is to me a national holiday, and, as in years past, I can think of no better place to celebrate than Ryan’s Comics, in Murrieta, CA.  
I will of course be posting more as things develop, both about the new comic I will be releasing, and events and other stuff related to FCBD.  At present, I am working on some short JTFH adventures that I can have ready for inclusion, and am inviting local artists and friends of mine to submit work—under the pretense that this will be a good portfolio piece for them—for this potentially goodest of good causes.
I have waxed on here long enough for now, but please stay tuned.  And if you’re not inclined to do that, at least create a calendar event, put a note on your refrigerator, or ask Siri to remind you to check back here on Saturday, May 3rd, because there’s going to be something here for you.  It’s going to be big, it’s going to be awesome, and best of all, it’s going to be free.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
