Phase 7 #021 Preview!

Mon 1/12/2015

If anyone would like to check out a preview of Phase 7 #021, I've posted the first eight pages over in the comics section of this site.

This is the "beard issue" which examines the thought process behind The Basewood Beard, during which I did not cut my hair or beard for three and a half years. It also goes into great depth about how society treated me very differently when I had long hair and a massive beard.

I'm trying something new with this issue... I've cut penciling out of my cartooning process entirely! I now jump straight from my rough script to inks. It is a little nerve-wracking, but I'm having fun with it and I hope that the results look a bit more loose and energetic instead of my usual stiff, overworked drawing style. I'll do a proper write-up about my new process at a later date, but for now you can check out the results and see how they compare to previous issues of Phase 7.

Obviously the biggest advantage of this new process is increased speed! You can keep an eye on my progress for this issue on my homepage. I'm hoping I'll have this issue sent out to the Phase Seven Subscribers this summer!
