08/28/06 - Tomorrow's CCG Meeting

8/29/06 - I have updated this post with some links...
At our next meeting (Tuesday, August 29th) we will be discussing PERSPECTIVE. If you have any favorite methods of constucting 1-point, 2-point, 3-point or beyond please bring the explanation with you or be prepared to demonstrate the method. Bring your reference material if you need it for constructing perspective guidelines.
Other topics to discuss:
  • 24-hour comic day in October: what do we want to do? We could do a mini version, perhaps a 4-6 hour comic... (see next item)
  • I have been thinking we should have a quarterly (4 times a year) "jam session" one day on a weekend somewhere with enough room for everyone to work. Send me your thoughts; best as a comment to this post or you can email me if you're too shy to comment.
  • Developing a group library with donated books, audio tapes and videos. For video ideas see: - look around under 2D dvds. I have ordered one of Scott Robertson's DVDs (perspective).
  • Start/support a figure drawing workshop targeted to Illustrators, similar to this:

the Experts #1 in September's Diamond Previews

This is an exciting time for myself and penciller-co-creator, Clarence Pruitt. "the Experts #1" has made it into Diamond Distribution's September issue of "Previews." So, if you have any interest in the book or would just like to lend a hand in supporting your fellow, struggling, independent comic book creators... then bug the tar out of your favorite comic book retailer and tell them that they need to check out the September issue of Previews and order as many copies of "the Experts #1" as they can.

I know Clarence and I sure would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,
Kenn Minter
