5 Star Friday No.5 is here!
⭐ An Inspiring Artist: Daisuke "Dice" Tsutsumi
Tsutsumi’s work is colorful, playful, and wonderful! I was introduced to his work via a flier at Kinokuniya SF. This Saturday 5/21 Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo will be speaking about their experience leaving Pixar, forming Tonko House and creating The Dam Keeper. If you attend, come say hi.
⭐ A Project I’m Enjoying: Necropolis, by Jake Wyatt
The beautiful art, compelling story and poetic dialogue keep me coming back every week. I was hooked three years ago when a friend sent me it’s second test page. Its also got a great protagonist. What can a comic offer me, next to all of that?
⭐ A Helpful Blog/Post: Temple of Seven Golden Camels, by Mike Kennedy
Some great thoughts on introducing characters. Kennedy uses the scene from The Big Lebowski where both the viewer and characters meet Jesus Quintana. After reading this article, I’m convinced this scene is BRILLIANT.
His note on the scene's music is probably my favorite part.
⭐ A Helpful Resource: Primer by Google [iOS] [Android]
Primer is an amazing resource for picking up some marketing knowledge. Even a 5 minute commute to work is enough time to open up the app and learn something valuable. Highly recommend checking this out.
“Appeal to Searchers and Search Engines Using SEO” and “Finding a Name That’s More Than Just a Name” are two of my favorite exercises.
⭐ A Quote I’m enjoying: “The end will be what it will be. The object is intense living, fulfillment; the great happiness in creation.”
