I love drawing comics. Seriously, that's like all i do...

Current Residence: Atlanta, GA
Favourite genre of music: Punk and Hardcore
Favourite style of art: Comic/Cartoon
Favourite cartoon character: Bender, and Gir!
Personal Quote: Make Comics Not Excuses!


Idea for a Patreon perk: Personalized art critiques.  Good Idea? stupid idea?  who would pay for that?
Just got back from HeroesCon.  Thank you everyone who came and visited me, and commissioned me, and supported me.  I'll be posting the commissions as soon as I get them off my scanner. (then I have to finish the couple commissions still on my list here.) (then I have to get back to making comics....)
Cause I like talking to you all, (and because I've been really too busy to keep up with it.)  What's your favorite things announced at E3 so far?
I just had a lengthy conversation with a deviant who, simply put, was upset that I didn't do art for free.

Please understand, this is my job.  I'm not greedy, I just need to provide for my household. (unless you count wanting to eat as greedy.)  And this has been a really hard year so far, so I really can't afford to do free art right now, even if I wanted to.

If you'd like art from an artist, but cannot afford their prices, do not ask for free art, it's rude and disrespectful. It shows you do not care about them or their art.  Perhaps offer something in return for the art that isn't money. Sometimes artists need help designing their website, or moderating comments in a live stream or forum. Maybe you can offer them something from your business in exchange, or another service the artist might need.  But whatever you do, don't ask for free art, this is someones life and they owe you nothing, so offer something in return. 
Animazement compete. Next Con is Heroes in Charlotte, NC. Anyone going to visit me there?
For those of you who live in the Southeast of the USA, I'm confirmed to be at three conventions later this year.


September 1– September 4, 2017.  Atlanta, GA.


September 28 - October 1st, 2017. Atlanta, GA.


December 1 - December 3, 2017. Pigeon Forge, TN.

I hope I'll see a few of you at one of these cons!

I've noticed some resentment lately from Groups when I try to promote my projects and products. If I created a new group dedicated to the promotion and advertisement of your art projects (comics, art, prints, whatever), would you join/promote it? 

60 deviants said Yes!
22 deviants said No opinion, just clicking on things
8 deviants said No.
4 deviants said there are already groups that do this (let me know who they are)
No deviants said other suggestion (what do you think? leave a comment.)


Everyone elase look at all my faves (all of them) ^-^ plz

read some of your comics I wish I could make comics like you 
Shono Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2017  Professional General Artist
I'm glad you like my work!   And you can make comics like me. Maybe not at this exact moment. But if you're willing to put in the work to learn, you definitely can!

thanks I'm saving up for an art tablet 
Shono Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2017  Professional General Artist
Drawing tablets are great tools. But not magical tools.  You still need to know how to draw. So continue to practice with traditional! You'll get there!

Hey Shawn!!

Quick Question: How long does it usually take you to finish a comic?
Shono Featured By Owner May 30, 2017  Professional General Artist

If its for a paying publisher, and I'm just doing the line art; 2-4 weeks depending on the deadline (i've done it in 2 weeks before, but it sucked a lot, I couldn't do that more than once in a while without burning out. 4 weeks is a more reasonable and maintainable schedule.)

If it's my creator ownedcomics, it takes for F*cking ever, cause I have other paid gigs I have to do to make ends meet. So I only get to work on it when I'm not working on paid work so i can... y'know not starve. haha

If I were to write a script and gather the money to pay you, would you be up for helping me do a comic book for this contest:…
Shono Featured By Owner May 30, 2017  Professional General Artist
Read all the rules very carefully. Make sure this isn't a scam. The fact the first line is "get exposure" is a big red flag to me. So read the contest rules to make sure that they do not own your creation by submitting. A lot of art contests are ways for companies to get free art without having to pay for it.
