Well, I had a comic strip all planned but after drawing this I figured, why not show off my hard work?  I love drawing manga and I absolutely love Hellsing.  Enjoy!

Free Comics – Library Grab 3

Another fine day at the library!  Check out the stash of comics!  I’m pretty excited to have been able to grab a few books that I have seen for a few years in the book store but never had a chance to read.  Also, a few books by artist Queenie Chan whom I have been recently following on inkblazers.  Please check out her blog as well as her work!

Also, I have set up a Facebook page for Jason Douglas’ Comics!  Click on the side link to like the page and spread the word!  More comics to come!

I was so excited to be able to find The Drifting Classroom by Kazuo Umezu at my local library.  Every time I Google’d “scariest mangas”, this was one of the titles that comes up each time.  On a whim with my fingers cross I typed it in and not only did they have it, but it was still available!!  I can’t wait to read it.

Also, outside of this picture I was also able to take out Soul Eater Volume 1 by Atsushi Okubo as well as a couple books from the last Library Grab that I am still plugging away at.  I figured next week would be a great time to tackle all of these as I will be on a vacation for a week and will be flying for some of the way.  What better time to read horror manga than on an airplane?  With all of this reading manga, how am I suppose to draw my own?

Friday Sketch

Well, I have been drawing more Manga/Anime inspired sketches lately.  I find myself struggling with the duality of a cartoony style in regards to comic strips but a manga style when it comes to actually trying to be a comic artist.  I love Manga and Anime and for a while there I was trying to draw a sketch of at least one character from a Manga or Anime that inspired me.

When I decided to jump into the world of Manga not too long ago I just happened to pick up Pluto by Naoki Urasawa and it blew my mind!  After years of reading American superhero comics, I never knew a comic book would make me think about the medium in such a different way.  From there I pretty much decided that I needed to expect more out of my comics.  I needed to stop going through the motions of going to the comic shop for Batman and Fantastic Four for the sake of having them and I should expect to be entertained for the money I am spending and time I am taking to read them.

Not to mention Pluto was just an amazing story.  So, I decided to sketch a picture of Atom.  He is not my favorite character but definitely the most important to the story and I couldn’t help but love him as much as the story intended me to.  I don’t like to recommend things too often since everyone has their own taste, but this Manga really is amazing.
