DRAW HARD COMIX

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 13, 2014, 9:47 PM
 Draw Hard Comix is my secondary Tumblr in which i am going to unleash new comics upon this unsuspecting web/world and THROW DOWN is the first comic book, graphic novel, greatness that i will be unleashing via drawhardcomix.tumblr.com 

I have been wanting to do a fighting comic for some time now and the restrictions of 22 pages per issue just doesn’t give me the space i want to show the kinds of frenetic, in your face, dare i say ground breaking fight scenes i want to birth upon the comics world. So i went the web way where space is infinite to tell my tale of love, friendship, greed and of course crazed, throat grabbing, ball kicking, awe inspiring kung-fu, mixed martial arts action. 

Every Wednesday i will update the Draw Hard Comix Tumblr with at least 2 new pages of story for my underground kung fu, mixed martial arts epic THROW DOWN. And once THROW DOWN is complete i will move on to my next epic graphic novel. 

I will continue to post commissions and single image work on my main Tumblr johneink.tumblr.com  as well as my Deviant Art page drawhard.deviantart.com along with updates on appearances and of course links to The Comic Wrap Up the bi-weekly podcast i am apart of.

The Draw Hard Comix tumblr is strictly for my original comic book creations. I love comics, i love storytelling and when the opportunity presented itself to me almost 8 years ago to create my own comics i leapt at the chance. Creating, drawing and writing in those first 2 years of my career a slew of characters and fun, wild stories. Some time after that for whatever reasons i stopped creating for myself. I of course still worked, producing art for other great writers and producing a slew of fantastic and fun commission for cons, stores and private collectors. All of which i will happily continue to do as i work on THROW DOWN. But creating, telling stories that is what drives me and for a few years i left that car in the garage. It is time to take her for a spin!

FORBIDDEN TALES

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 16, 2013, 12:54 PM
Its been busy here at Draw Hard studios and that is a good thing. Wondercon was great meant awesome people, got to hang w/ friends, sold art and stuff and released FORBIDDEN TALES a brand new horror anthology from Forbidden Panel at their awesome booth on the first day of Wondercon. The book was well received and we were like 4 copies shy of selling out which is pretty epic if you ask me. FORBIDDEN TALES is great anthology featuring not only myself but the super talent of "Been Better" creator Jimmy Purcell and "Plague" creator Daniel Whitfeild.
Not only did i get the oppurtunity to do the cover i contributed a 14pg rockabilly, werewolf, vampire mash up with all the bells and whistles that come w/ a story written and drawn by me. Then there is Jimmy Purcells' 14pgs of doom, a glorious new take on possession and awesome display of his talents outside of the "Been Better"verse. Leaving us with Daniel Whitfelds 14pg "to be continued" slice of suspenseful terror. It is a good thing Volume 2 of FORBIDDEN TALES is already in the works!!!
If your a fan of indy comix/awesome, or if your a horror fan looking for a new thrill, or both FORBIDDEN TALES Vol. 1 is now available digitally at forbiddenpanel.com/PanelCast/?…
Get ur indy horror comic on!!!! forbiddenpanel.com/PanelCast/?…

WONDERCON AND OTHER AWESOME SAUCE!!!

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 17, 2013, 5:32 PM
To start let me say thankyou to everyone that supported my friends "in Sanity, AZ." Kickstarter!!! Because of all those epic individuals that support the diversity, and seemingly endless talent that is independent comic books "In Sanity, AZ." was completely funded. Giving me the oppurtunity to draw some kick ass, creep ass horror! So once again thank you.

Now that thats out of the way onto the wonderfuly, wonderous, WONDERCON 2013!!! Show dates are as follows March 29th - 31st, 2013. I will be sharing a booth w/ fellow indy comic deviant Jimmy Purcell in the small press area of Wondercon under the extremely clever and creative name J&J Studios, the booth number is SP79 www.comic-con.org/wca/2013/sma…. I will have a selection of new prints, a brand new hand made artbook DRAWHARD vol. 2, DUST: Whithered Earth trade paperback, Cholo Libre: 24 Hour Comic Book #1, sketch cards and more all ready and willing to be purchased and loved!!! I will also be accepting commissions prices to be announced.

Now Wondercon will be quite busy for me because i will also be at the Forbidden Panel booth (booth #1010 across from Skybound Entertainment) signing and slinging a new horror anthology called FORBIDDEN TALES forbiddenpanel.com/PanelCast/?…. Which i had the grand pleasure of desinging and illustrating  the cover for along with a 14 page short the fine gentleman at Forbidden Panel were nice enough to allow in their anthology. I have seen the final version of FORBIDDEN TALESforbiddenpanel.com/PanelCast/?… and it is noice.  FORBIDDEN TALES includes two other shorts one by Jimmy Purcell and the other by Daniel Whitfeld and i am ecstactic to be in there company, these two cats are some talented mofos and i can't wait to see what these guys do next.

And that is all the news fit to print. As Wondercon grows closer i will be posting signing schedules,  previews of my new prints and pages from FORBIDDEN TALES. Oh yeah if you tweet, i tweet follow me here twitter.com/johneink if you Fb, i also fb find me here www.facebook.com/#!/john.narco… .

In Sanity, AZ!!!

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 15, 2013, 2:36 AM
So for a few weeks now i have been all over the facebook/twittersphere talking about a new kickstarter project called In Sanity, AZ. You are more than likely asking yourself what is  In, Sanity, AZ.  Well a group of writers (two of which i have worked w/ in the past) got together and created a horror anthology of awesome proportions all stories taking place in a town in Arizona called Sanity.  These four creators have managed to gather a huge roster of talent to do the art chores on this book/graphic novel/anthology and i am lucky enough to be included.
This project is amazing and i cannot wait to get to work on this so please follow the link provided and show some support for a slew of awesome indy talent!!! Either by donating or just spreading the word! There is 1.5 days left so do yourself a favor and be apart of something unique, horrifying, and awesome!!!

AFTER DUST!!!

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 31, 2012, 5:23 PM
So the final issue of DUSTwww.keyleafcomics.com/store.ht… is coming out soon. The big question now is "Whats next?". Well i will be saying goodbye(for now) to the semi-realistic, gritty, cross hatched, water color wash style of art i adopted to tell the story of James Ninness wild, post apocalyptic western DUSTwww.keyleafcomics.com/store.ht…. I will be moving forward visually with a style of art that i usually hide in my sketchbooks!!! I guess you can call my new stuff cartooney or american traditional toon, i just call it following my muse. So as i post new pieces and venture on into new storytelling territories yet discovered i hope all that follow my work come along for the ride. Trust it will be a wild one!!!
DUST #6 AVAILABLE NOW AT www.keyleafcomics.com/store.ht…

WONDERCON IN SICKNESS AND HEALTH!!!

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 30, 2012, 6:19 PM
Wondercon was 2/3 weeks ago and i have yet to say a single word about my Wondercon experience...has it been laziness, fear, or something more dreadful that has kept my Wondercon experience under wraps? Dare i say it was something more dreadful!!! In fact it was the dreaded CON FLU!!! Yep you heard it here first after being flu free for a year CON FLU came and kicked my ass. The CON FLU was sneaky it took a couple of days for it to kick in and completely dominate my life. For 7 days of misery i took vitamins, medicine, cough drops, sleep, tissues and everything else required to defeat the stupid beast known as CON FLU which kept me from doing just about anything. Yet victory came and i fell the beast known as CON FLU!!!
     Now some words on Wondercon. The work up to the show almost buried me in a blanket of fatigue (really need to learn how to budget my time better!) I wrapped up DUST #3 for Semantink Publishing (find the comic here www.semantink.com.html ) leaving me less then a week to finish up my prints and 2012 art book. With much strain and a slight eye twitch i managed to get done what needed to be done for the show and waded through the worst parking experience of my con going life to exhibit at what was a lively, bright show. I got to see many friends some of which i haven't seen and or talked to in years including a cousin of mine who i didn't even know was into comics!!! Got to hang with the Inky Ballz crew (James your crazy i hope the cat lady liked the Zombie card), had a great sit down with Semantinks publisher Ben Glibert (Love the Dust prints).  I even had the good fortune to witness my good friend AJ Herreras' success as his Forbidden Panel booth at Wondercon was constantly busy flush with old and new fans devouring all that Forbidden Panel www.forbiddenpanel.com.html had to offer!!!
      The highlight of Wondercon came at an unexpected time as i was sitting behind my booth doing the math learning that financially the show wasn't turning out to be the greatest and with a wedding in my future and fatigue riding me like a two dollar whore on Valentines day worry/fear was slowly invading my confidence and then Rich rolled up with his Green Lantern hat, wheelchair and good humor. And we started to talk, to have a real conversation about comics, about being an artist and being a fan. This was the highlight of the show for me. Rich was having a good time, he seemed  happy to be at the show a true fan, not a looky lou, not a autograph hound, not someone looking to see a preview of the next big TV show a fan that enjoys the medium for the mediums sake who sees comics as art and entertainment. Our conversation reminded me why i do this, it allowed me to pull my head out of the grind and just enjoy the simple fact that i get to make funny books and not to give up. Which is huge because this business of comics can be at times brutal and discouraging, and to meet someone, a fan of this industry that doesn't care about all the bs that goes into the making of was refreshing. And i know that Rich isn't the only fan of comics out there that sees things the way he does but Rich was there at the right place and right time to pull me out of the muck Thanks Rich!!!
     There were many other great things about the show i had two sets of neighbors that were awesome company to have, i picked up a Stan Sakia sketchbook and other goodies, even had a chance to talk with Ted Mckeever and if you don't know who he is you need to check out his new book MONDO coming out through Image comics its the awesome sauce!!! All in all despite the tired, bad parking and contracting the con flu the good of WonderCon Anaheim outweighed the bad and i  cant wait till next year!!!

Argh! The dreaded walk down memory lane!!! I have found in my meager 33 years on this ball of mud that all memories, remembrances, histories and the like are victim to ones attitude. On any given day bad can be good and good can be bad depending on ones attitude. My attitude is pretty much stuck on "shit happens, stop whining, you want it work for it and get over it."even when i am smiling this is pretty much where my attitude is at. Depending on ones temperament this sort of attitude can do one just fine. And as i look back on last year and the year before that, i can't help but be a little grateful for this attitude(Dad, Mom, Life thanx!) it has helped me turn 2011s' hardships to triumphs, mistakes into experiences and wins into humility.
   For me 2011 was 2010 part 2! I was dealing with a lot July 2011 marked the year anniversary of my fathers passing which is something one never gets over. From July 2010 -July 2011 my attitude couldn't save me from my feelings. That cunt death wasn't done with me or my family in just 6 months after my father passed 3 other members of my family passed and then a few months after that she took my cat. Death is a whore.  2011 was not looking good and every time my attitude seemed to pick up its beaten ass off from the ground life would kick it in the sack. Lucky for me lifes' leg got tired after i lost my house. Yaaa 2011(yes i am sarcastically cheering).
  You are probably asking yourself were is this infamous attitude that turns tragedy to triumph? Well for one i am still here! The pain of losing my father will never go away i don't care what kind of attitude you have I have learned to accept this along with all the other shit that has happened. I have learned that some one can whine without words and getting over it doesn't mean forgetting it. I have come to recognize the strength in something as small as just waking up and the weakness of hiding behind work.I have also learned that you have to work for everything you want not just money. I am closer to my sister, my wonderful fiance(it was our cat & our house) stuck by my side through all the madness and in August of 2011 we celebrated 4 years together, i got to find out who my real friends were and still are(even saw one of these friends wed ahhhh!)and even though sitting at the board and dong my job was at times difficult i was able to pull through and meet my obligations (almost i still have a couple of commissions to finish.) And that is my infamous attitude at work tragedy meet triumph! Hell I was even able to make it to SDCC and bring with me a Comic Con virgin and witnessing his nerdvana made the madness that is SDCC a little more bearable.
   I guarantee there are many things i have forgotten as i took this walk down memory lane (lets be honest this is more of a sprint.) and even as i finished typing the above sentence so much more has sprung to mind. All that really matters right now is that i thank everyone who was a part of my 2011. To my very patient editor THANK YOU!!!!!! To my friends who may even share in my attitude thank you. To Melissa who has put up with my attitude  and shared in the madness of the past year I love you and really really Thank you for everything. So there you have it the year 2011 according to January 10th, 2012 and despite my attitude i am grateful 2011 was exactly what it was supposed to be. As for the future well if i learned anything this past year it is this: today is the day. No one is guaranteed a tomorrow.
