Journal
How I got hired by DC... I think.
Well... I say "I think" because I only know my side of the story, for now. I haven't asked them for their side yet.
I colored everyday, at least 6 hours a day, for nearly 4 years. The end.
just kidding :) But seriously, I did do that and that helped, I'm sure.
Back in September I wanted a good sequential portfolio, A whole comic to show the editors that i could tell a whole story with my colors, but I couldn't show the whole comics I worked on for ColletteTurner and Hodges-Art because that would give away their story. So I began the search for a whole comic that was inked here on DA. No luck. There wasn't an inker who had inked a whole single comic and had it up for high res download. I googled it. No luck, again. Then I remembered 'Batman: Black and White' that was published for years, "That has a whole comic that's inked" I thought to myself. I'll buy it, cut it up, scan it in and then color it! I typed it into Amazon.com, "Rats!" not a whole 24 page comic in there! It was just a b

I have been away from home for almost 3 months now with a 5 day break. Without my Wacom tablet, I haven't had the tools to ink and I haven't flatted anything in ages. A few weeks ago, one of my Deviant Art watchers tagged me in a piece that he had colored and I had flatted. After some banter back and forth on the comments section, he requested another piece to be flatted. Brian Graham is practicing his coloring skills and coming along nicely in my opinion. He has requested more pieces for me to flat and this has renewed my interest in comic book art. Once I get done with this final offshore rotation, I will be working on my digital inking again.

As a special favor to me, Brian colored my first ink piece, which I also flatted. I think it turned out badass even though I am a little biased. Thanks for that and thanks for getting my interest back into comics. I think I just needed someone to use my flats and request more work from me to get me back into the swing of things.
