Teaching Myself to Letter

With "Charlie Gold" I'm taking the opportunity to learn to letter comics with Photoshop. It's been a lot of trial and error, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. We'll see when something more complex comes across my desktop, but "Charlie Gold" is a great way to start.

"CHARLIE GOLD" Now Online!

Well... almost.

The Sonata of Charlie Gold to be published here:


I'm very excited about this webcomic! It's a new challenge in terms of pacing, and Elisita Gayle's work is fresh, youthful, and very eye appealing! Updates on the process of "Charlie Gold" will, of course, continue to be published here but the final product will be on the new site.

Great things are coming!

When Details Change Everything

Before Elisita Gayle turned in the title screen of THE SONATA OF CHARLIE GOLD, I had a very different backstory in mind for the teenager. I figured she'd want to assert her independence by dying her hair some wild shades, or wear lots of blacks, or something.

Then I saw in the design that this girl had eyebrow, nose, and even lip piercings. I liked the look, and it didn't start to bother me until the realization of Charlie's age set in.

Charlie is 16! 99% of all the jewelry places won't pierce minors without a guardian's permission. That started a whole ball rolling, all centered on this question: Who paid for/approved Charlie's piercings?

I answered that question, and in doing so, came up with a totally different backstory than I had originally intended. Charlie's still a teenager asserting her independence, but now the hows and whys of Charlie's young life are different than when I first conceptualized the character. It's just an example of how a detail as small as a pierced eyebrow changes everything you had planned about a character.


Here are the first three pages of ORIGINAL SIN, written by me with art by Kelly Porteous!
