Random Ink webcomic is back up!

Some of you might have noticed that our Random Ink webcomic site has been down for some time now.  We’ve got it fixed finally, so it seemed like a good time to remind you all that you can read 22 different stories (from 1-10 pages each) anytime you wish!  If you’re not familiar with Random Ink, it is our anthology that features a wide variety of stories… everything from sci-fi to humor to fantasy to slice-of-life.  All of the stories can be read as standalone tales, although some characters have continuing chapters.  We will be working on even more new stories for this anthology over the next year or so.

Planet Comicon this weekend!

Come and find us at the show!

Convention season is upon us once again… it’s time for Planet Comicon in Kansas City this weekend!  As usual we will be setup and drawing commissions the whole time.  We will also be premiering some new books and prints at the show, including…

Rook City #3 cover

That’s right… ROOK CITY #3 is finally complete!  This 36 page comic features two new stories.  The first spotlights the Vlad Squad and Toby Fox as they attempt to figure out who is responsible for the “vampire attacks” on their campus.  The second one delves deeper into the relationship between Rook City’s resident superhero, the Captain, and his arch-enemy, Dark Star.

Random Fantasies anthology by Elton Gahr

Elton is has finished a new anthology of fantasy short stories… RANDOM FANTASIES.  This anthology covers a wide variety of fantasy types, from modern day wizards hiding in plain sight to sword and sorcery tales. Its characters include an old wine merchant who has given up on the world, a young girl trapped in a city under siege, a wizard who discovered that magic is not as random as it seems and the luckiest man alive.  Check it out right now on Amazon!

Then we also have two new prints available this year…

New self portrait

Seth

I recently needed to create a new self portrait as part of an art show.  So it gave me a good excuse to finally update my avatars/profile pictures after several years.  This was rotoscoped digitally over a photo I took a while back.  It was fun to experiment with different textures as I digitally painted over it.

Brown paper hobos

Thor the Bum-Hammer

A couple months ago, we continued our occasional tradition of drawing some of the characters from John Hodgman’s list of 700 Hobo Names at our local Sketch Night.  This time we decided to draw on torn paper bags for extra authenticity.  If you want to see some of the past hobos we have drawn, here you go.

Things that are awesome: Super Dodge Ball

Super Dodge Ball characters

One of my favorite games on the original NES as a kid was Super Dodgeball. Like many games on that system, the graphics were not great… in fact, the system couldn’t really handle so many sprites moving on the screen at once and characters would often flicker in and out of view. But the gameplay was easy to pick up, competitive, and addictive! The variety of different “super balls” you could master (unique to different players) and the different countries the teams came from also made it a lot of fun. This game is responsible for a lot of sore thumbs from my friends and I back then. I was playing this game on the Wii with my daughter (thankfully it’s available on the virtual console) a while back and thought it would be fun to draw two of the main characters from it… Sam from Team USA and Boris from Team USSR. I’ve always been sad that they never made a newer version of this game for more recent consoles.
