I got to go to APE-CON with Urban Myth Studios as their in-house letterer a couple weeks ago. This was because I AM their in-house letterer! Boy, howdy! In the spirit of comics I drew these two guys from Marvel Comics. Wolverine and Thor as stick(ish) figures. I have a Nightcrawler posted over on deviantArt, so you’ll have to go over there to view it. That site just has more of the stuff you’ve already seen here. Re-posted comics and such. As my scanner bought a farm several months ago, I took the best pictures I could with my phone and altered them in Photoshop in order to make them look better. You will notice that I have failed. A new scanner is on the way, but I’ve heard mixed things about it. The scanner will be bigger than the one I owned before, so that is a plus.
While at the convention I got to meet the famed creator of Hip Flask and Elephantmen, Richard Starkings! It was great. He look at the lettering I did for the Urban Myth guys and said that most of it was good, except for a few dumb mistakes. Which I should have caught. Here’s a page I lettered that he enjoyed as the SFX were good. The last panel has a bad tail in it which I will be correcting soon so it can be placed into my portfolio. If the majority of my lettering work is good, the only question left is, “how do I get a job doing that?!”
