Thus, when people we know do things we think are cool, it behooves us to mention it.
First up is our very own Cheyenne Wright, who is currently slumming as the colorist for Girl Genius. He is posting a series of videos about how he colors things, and it is very entertaining. One of his latest is a tutorial on how he did the Corbettite pinstripes. Originally, I was going to draw all of those furshluginer lines in myself. But Cheyenne said that he’d prefer to do it himself. The results were well better than I could have done, so well done Cheyenne! Here is his tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1b8bv63z7vM). I now expect a lot more comic characters to be strutting about in pinstripes, and the world will be a better place for it.
Our other recommendation is for those people who actually live within a hundred miles of Seattle proper, and are looking for something interesting to do this Friday night. Our good friend Master Payne–yes, the guy we based the character in Girl Genius on– will be having a live show called ACTS OF DESPERATION. It will be at 102 Cherry St. In Seattle, 98104 at 7:00 PM, and you can get tickets here (http://www.brownpapertickets.com/) Payne will also be doing a series of Girl Genius themed shows through-out the Seattle Library System this summer, which are well worth watching. We’ll post about those when the times and venues are nailed down.
