I am about to rip my hair right out of my head, this prep for canzine is frazzling me so much. It's really my semi-official debut on the art convention/fair circuit, and holy crap, did I underestimate how much work goes into it all.

So a gift to to myself (and you!), I'm putting up a 10 page preview of my 24 Hour Comic, 'The Last Minute'. I'll be selling paper copies at Canzine tomorrow, so if you like it and you're in the area, swing by to have a glance and chat me up!

Designs, oh my.

by Karen H. Brown on Saturday, October 24, 2009

I've developed a recent obsession with Wonder Woman! To celebrate, I'm doing art challenges on the Wonder Woman message boards at Comic Book Resources, check it out!

First one was Wonder Woman's Winter Wardrobe - it's a cardi & underwear take on one of Wonder Woman's weirder costumes. I'm working on some other designs, but damn it's hard.

I'm also going to have some stuff at canzine, so if you're going, drop by!

24 Hour Comic Day

by Karen H. Brown on Sunday, October 4, 2009

October 3rd was 24 Hour Comic Day. I didn't know it was coming, but a friend told me about it the night before. I decided, what the hey, I'd give it a spin. I worked from 1pm to 8am the next day, and then crapped out on the last 5 hours. I was dead in the water. It was pretty hilarious to make up the story on the fly, without any pre-plotting. I trashed something like four start pages before finally settling on one.

Anyhow, I managed to finish the sometimes-rough-sometimes-polished pencils. I'm going to clean the sucker up and ink it, and post the whole thing here in it's entirety. Or at least, link to someplace where you can read it. It's a pretty straightforward story about a space lady boarding a ship to complete some unspecified mission.

But it's got monsters! Aw yeah, monsters.

In the meantime, he are some of my favorite panels, and my fave page.
