Gauntlet is something of a post-apocalyptic science fiction story that I have been working on for some time.  The first issue was one of my first forays into a full sized comic book, and although the story came across well, the artwork suffered, as I didnt plan my time for it well enough. For this, the second issue of the storyline, I planned my time much better, allowing for both traditional image making, full time for lettering and editing. All in all a much more successful venture, and a comic I am proud to call my own.

As such, I’m willing to share the full issue for multiple purposes. 1. showcasing what I can do, and 2. hopefully leading to more work in the comic field.

Will share the link to purchase the print volume shortly.

Gauntlet, issue 2.
















Tapestry Comic.

Earlier this year I was asked to create a comic story for Bloody Pulp Magazine, an independently published comic book collection. At the time I’d been kicking around an idea for a short horror themed series, and decided to give it a go. These images are in grayscale, but the pages are actually being painted in color for a future version of the publication. Hopefully you’ll get to check them out in the not too distant future.

Enjoy the first six pages of the story here.

This is actually homework for a legit project, but I’m going to have some fun with it.
So, what’s happening here is, each of these little drawings (measurements are approx 2″ x 3″ each) are created on a different kind of paper. The letter under the JMS tag coincide with a sheet of paper where I’m keeping track of what is what. Each also has a rating on it. I may go into detail at the end of the experiment, but not now.
What each of these are, is a test. They have been made so I can try some different papers with a homemade adhesive (wheat paste), and see what works the best for creating artwork, and adhering it to a brick wall. Depending on how well this works out, you may see some more detailed mural work coming your way from me, as I can then work on pieces at home, and slap them up street art style.

All in all, it’s fun so far. Tomorrow however will be the deciding factor on how this goes as I’ll be testing the adhesive use on some walls. Wish me luck.

Also, this week’s comic is a bit delayed, will be up by Tuesday or Wed of this coming week most likely. The murals and art show setup have been a bit of a time consumer.
JG out for now
