They did a page about us in a travel guide called CITIx60, where 60 “creatives” select a “hotspot.” Sorta cool.

I love the Desert Island shop in Williamsburg. I remember when that neighborhood was an industrial wasteland. Union Pool Bar was an actual pool supply company. The “paint factory” lined the shore front. Now it’s a travel destination and in no small way thanks to the small businesses and artists that make it attractive.

I am slowly making progress on Blood of the Virgin, the book length comic I have been working on for YEARS. Maybe it will be completed next year. To help stay on course with the book, I have given dozens of drawings, illustrations, and original comic pages to The Beguiling who will be selling them in person at Comic Con this weekend at the Drawn & Quarterly booth. These are pieces that are not online yet, and in some cases, I have held onto for a while. Sales through them help me continue on Blood of the Virgin. so if you’re at the show, take a look. Maybe you’ll like something enough to buy it. If you aren’t going to the show, you can look at my earlier Beguiling list of originals here or contact me directly if you want something not listed, or want to commission something or hire me for an illustration or a dick/tit tattoo. All Price ranges. We can work it out. samharkham AT gmail DOT com.

It is all very appreciated. 

Above are some in-progress pages from the book, before scanning, color, and clean-up. Judge lightly.

Someone anonymously asked this morning about Seth, so it would have to be someone who went to school with me, and involved in comics, and follows me on Tumblr, so basically one guy… I’ll ask you if I run into you in Toronto next month, Bwana Beast.

So, around age 22, I applied and got $2000 from my school, OCAD, for an anthology.  For my comic, I wanted to do something different (I’ve never been much into writing narrative), so I decided to interview Seth.  He was listed in the phone book under his real name (I’m sure he’s amended that now) and he was a former student at the same school.  He agreed, and we had an hour conversation I recorded, then I drew it for the next month.

This was the biggest project I’d done up to that point (I have always been very lazy), and there were a few massive mistakes.

1) I did the greys in Photoshop in the computer lab that had opened that year (around 1998).  First time using it, nobody who taught it at that point.  So, it’s all one layer.   Terrible idea.

2) No Wacom tablets at that time, in the school at least.  So it’s all done with a mouse.  Ugh.

3) I saved it to zip disc.  No CD burners back then.  And I didn’t know file formats, so I saved it in some way that has hurt the resolution.  The printed copy was fine, but not the digital copies that I have now.  No idea how I got them.

All in all, it was a great experience, and I appreciated meeting people whose comics I looked up to (him and Joe Matt).  He is a nice enough guy.  This story was in Square #2, and was my foot in the door of the Toronto comics scene.  I didn’t follow up on it much at all (only two more zines of questionable quality came out over the next four years).  

The lettering is terrible, and too much info is crammed in.  I had no pacing back then.  But there are things I liked about this.
