The hit series Breaking Bad is ending this Sunday. In honor of the occasion I’m posting the last of my storyboards for the series.
This scene, like the previous storyboard I posted, was for the Season 5 episode “Buyout.” SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen this episode but want to, don’t look!
Last week I posted some storyboards I did for Breaking Bad in their fourth season. I did some storyboards for the episode “Buyout” in Season 5. I drew two scenes; the first one, the episode teaser, is shown below. (SPOILER: Don’t look if you haven’t seen that episode but plan to!)
It’s not just fashion designers or fashion illustrators who need to keep on top of the latest fashions. Trends in one field of design always influence others, and it’s a good idea to stay on top of the latest styles.
I’ve been trying lately to be more mindful of fashion. As an illustrator for the Art of Manliness and Real Men Real Style sites, of course, I need to know. Plus, I’m tired of being told my women look like they’re from the ’80s.
Pantone has come out with their report on the colors of next fall’s women’s fashions, as well as interviews with several designers and fashion influencers. If you’re a designer or illustrator of any type, or if you’re just curious, go check it out.
The new Art of Manliness Store is up and running. In addition to some very nice t-shirts, notebooks, stickers and books, it features a section on posters, including my Know Your Lifts posters and my Smartphone Etiquette series. Check it out!
We’re trying something different at Art of Manliness — well, different for them; a historical moment conveyed in comics form!
I’m very proud of this story we put together from an excerpt of Frederick Douglass’ autobiography. In his own words, Douglass describes a moment when he asserted his rights as a human being.
If this one goes over well we’ll do more. It seems like that’s already the case.
I’ve created a series of vintage-style posters for the lifestyle blog Art of Manliness highlighting smartphone etiquette.
The posters are inspired from the old safety posters of the ’40s through the ’60s that would be put up in workplaces to remind workers the importance of wearing a hardhat or the dangers of loose clothing or not enough sleep.
Since being included in the Art of Manliness’ Gift Guide this year, Savage, the graphic novel about a vampire hunter in the Old West written by R.A. Jones and drawn by Ted, has been selling very well! We’ve sold more than fifty from our sales page, where you can also get copies of Ted’s Jazz Age two-volume set. Ted will sign them to whomever you ask, and there’s even a free shipping option! (Though this close to Christmas I’d recommend paying extra for Priority Mail.)
The first volume reprinting the Annie newspaper strips by writer Jay Maeder and artist Ted Slampyak is now available as an eBook on iTunes!
The first collection presents Maeder & Slampyak’s first two stories, “The Phantom Commando” and “Queen of the Martian Iguanas”.
A summary of the book and link to the iTunes site can be found here.
Tribune Media, the owners and syndicators of the late, lamented Annie newspaper strip, are about to publish the first of a series of Annie eBooks reprinting all the stories that writer Jay Maeder and I created over our six-year stretch on the series!
Volume One, which will come out in November, will cover the first two stories we did, The Phantom Commando and The Queen of the Martian Iguanas. The second story takes place in New Mexico and introduces my favorite guest stars of the series, the Broadcast Ranch Boys!
The eBooks are formatted for various media & devices, but I hear they’ll look best on an iPad. More word on the release of this first volume when I hear more!
