Over the weekend I had insomnia, and decided to stream my work on the Big Dumb Objects cover. That video is now available on YouTube.
The audio wasn’t working, and it took me a minute to realize I wasn’t being heard, so I’ve positioned the video at that point in the clip above. I decided not to troubleshoot the audio, and to instead focus on making art.
I’ll be doing this again, only with working audio, so be sure to follow twitch.tv/howardtayler for notifications of the live stream. The next pass of inks will really shape the picture, and should be fun to watch.
We’re still on-track with the Big Dumb Objects Kickstarter, and our first pin design proofs are now pictured on the page. It looks like the pins will be unlocked as add-ons today or tomorrow, so be sure to check them out!
It is entitled “The Five Year Summer,” and it is an abridged account of why this project is running in October instead of in June.

The Schlock Mercenary Buffer (the queue of finished comics awaiting their daily reveal at schlockmercenary.com) has come under siege recently, and as of this writing it’s down around 5.
So, y’know… I have a bazillion things to talk about, but not much time to write, so for right now I’m just going to draw some comics. Maybe I’ll come up for air long enough to see if there are any movies playing, but let’s all agree in advance not to hold our breaths for that.
