For my HSC (year twelve certificate) art major work I submitted this ten page comic. It was the year 2001 and life was tumultuous as teen years often are but I managed to set aside five days if I remember correctly to belt this out before it was due. If you look hard enough you can even see the pencil underneath the ink where I hadn’t even the time (or energy) to rub them out before I handed it in.

This was also before I had photoshop, much less a computer to run it, so all those ugly error made with the black felt tip (to my immense frustration) had to remain. I endeavoured to keep these uploads as true to the originals as possible with one exception; the solid blacks are true solids in these pages where the originals exhibited the pen strokes from the permanent marker I used.

Stay tuned for the Director’s Cut versions where I’ll correct the inking errors and add colour.

    dude, you seriously rock! Now that you’ve uploaded them all though, you need to put in some “next” links on each to make reading them all easier.

  • I thought that RB’s next link would be adequate but now that I think of it, a preview/link to the next page really would be more handy.
    Thanks!

    oh well I feel a bit silly, now that I think about it since you posted all these in sequence the normal redbubble links would be quite adequate. hehe, well… I’ll just draw some attention away from my stupidity by juggling some rabbits. hmm that’s not working.

  • Ha! Well take another look because I implemented your suggestion and I think it’s an improvement. Really time consuming work though…

    Awesomely done buddy, hats off…!
    I’m so curious now to see how will that look when coloured…
    Even with your little errors displayed you should be real proud of this man!

  • Thanks for your support, Rust! It really was a rush job at a time when I never, ever completely finished anything I did (I used to draw only half the figure and then just leave it as I thought that the other half could be substituted with “etc.”) Since then I’d not really put pencil to paper in any big way until I found RB and the motivation to put the kind of polish to my work that’s needed to be displayed to a global audience.

  • Have you seen the Digital Comic Version yet?

    I know exactly what you mean. That’s a problem for me too when it comes to creating comic strips… I don’t complete anything because I don’t put my mind in order. I get distracted by other influences and I end up to work on something completely different. What a mess!
    The internet is a motivation indeed… Well done on this once again!

    …and yes I enjoyed your digital one when I went through your journals before… Way cool… I’m sure you oughta focus on creating more like this one…

  • Well I’m preparing to put pencil to paper on the biggest project I’ve ever worked on yet. I’ve been writing something special for a few years now and I’m proofing it tonight. Once I’m satisfied it’s ready I’ll begin a comic book adaption and parallel production on the motion comic.

    Sadly I’m pretty sure it won’t be available here on RB as I put too much work into it for some jerk to just steal it on me. Although I’ll probably post some glimpses when their ready.

    Enjoyed viewing yr RD VERY COOL indeed Michael bring me back to my child hood I used to read lots of vampire comics in holland the sexy looking vampires in particular drew my attention ,keep it up Michael ,great work EDDIE

  • Thanks, Eddie D(?). Dutch comics?! I didn’t know there was such a thing but I guess no one outside of Australia would believe there were Australian made comics and they’d, in the most part, be correct.
