This week we want to shine some light on what some of our Outré contributors have got rolling beside Outré.
Dan Hill, one of our writers, runs a website all dedicated to writing comics. All the ropes, the how-tos and the resources can be found neatly organized at Dan’s Comic Writer Services 2.0. Always up to date! Do also stop by his main blog to get the first news from his world of creative writing, art and escapades.
We will be unveiling a lot of incoming artwork for Outré in 2013, but thought we could start a bit early, it’s this time of year, after all.
The talented Jim Giar is already deep in Ronald’s WWII story about a soldier who teaches a dog a deadly trick. Here’s a taste, or a thumbnail if you prefer, of how the first two pages will look!
Next year we’ll post all pencilled pages, with snippets of the script. Diving into the details, to see how this story grew from words to art.
Over in the US, our Alex Wilson came 3rd in the International Writers of the Future Contest for 2012! A great achievement, which bags him not only a nice prize, but also an intense week-long writing workshop. Unrelated to the competition, Alex’ short story The Last Christmas of Mrs. Claus is now available on the Kindle over at Amazon. Just in time for Christmas! You’ll find the latest news about Alex on his own blog. Head over and see what he’s cooking.
And over in France (and Japan), at the Atelier Sentô, Cécile and her creative partner Olivier continue to create designs and art in more than just the comic book field. On their blog you’ll find designs for animation, comics and storyboards for their latest short film, 3 Old Gods. The film is directed by Cécile Brun & Olivier Pichard, scenario by Josh Tierney and music by Giannis Milonogiannis & Yoo-hoos.
Ben Garriga gets some love over at ComixTribe where his pin-up was analysed:
“Ben has hit a homerun.” Go see what else they say about the pin-up over at the ComixTribe article!
And before you leave, go read Kim Holm’s terrifying and stark adaptation of Lovecraft’s Pickman’s Model! For free!
Fat, delicious food, friends and family will soon be joining us around the dining table. The holidays are just around the corner, and this is the last Outré update before ragnarok. But we’ll be back with more goodies come January 2013!
Happy and creative holidays from all of us at Outré!
