The Torture Master – Page 13

This week I had an amazing lunch with the amazing David Sandberg of Kung Fury.

There was a lot of mutual admiration in the air. I think both of us were wondering why we’d not connected sooner. I posted a little video message from the two of us to my Patreon page and I’ll talk more about the meeting in my next Patreon Pipe n’ Type on Friday.

Sale on commissions is live until May 12th, my anniversary.  Your commission money will go towards a gift I’d like to get my wife, but we’re on a tight budget right now so I’m trying to generate some extra cashflow. I’m also be doing a limited number of digital commissions each month. If you’ve ever wanted me to draw you something, now’s the time!  And if you are one of my Patreon subscribers, be sure to get a discount code based on your pledge level from me first!

Have you ever read my other comic, Bearmageddon? I’ve been reformatting it for Tapastic and Webtoons. Click those links to read the comic in a very mobile-friendly format. It’s a fun, cinematic way to read because each panel is hidden until you scroll down.

Also, if you enjoy Bearmageddon, please give it a vote on Top Webcomics. I’m working on getting Axe Cop on there as well, but one thing at a time.

That’s all for this week! Thanks for joining, see you next time.

Fire and Ice! – The Songster Page 12

 

I tell Parry to make a quick, simple little jingle for this page and he makes a full on metal song about steam. So great!

This week something really awesome happened to Dave DeAndrea. You should know Dave as the original voice of Axe Cop on YouTube and in the motion comics. He also sang as Axe Cop on last week’s song, Foxes the Size of Couches. But it was his voice work on the Battleship game that got the attention of Rhett and Link. He was on their show Ear Biscuits last week and it was hilarious. Dave and I heard Rhett and Link were fans of Axe Cop, so I sent Dave along with this drawing of them on Axe Cop’s team.

While we are on the topic of me drawing stuff for people. I have decide to open up commissions for the rest of April. I’m only taking 20 orders, closing on May 1st. I’ll also be doing a limited number of digital commissions (much like the one above)  each month. If you’ve ever wanted me to draw you something, now’s the time!  And if you are one of my Patreon subscribers, be sure to get a discount code from me first!

Ask Axe Cop 109: Ace Cop

This episode was created two months ago on Facebook Live, when Malachai and I went online and did a live Ask Axe Cop session. You can see that video here.

Next week will be the last Ask Axe Cop I post for a while. I’m thinning out my workload so I can get more done on a few of my main projects. The Songster will continue until completion!

Play that Banjo Son! – the Songster, page 9

The Songster isn’t afraid to genre-jump midset. He is, afterall, the Songster, not the rockster or the R&Bster.

Funfact: in today’s song the banjo solo is played by me. I recorded it on my phone and sent it to Parry. My wife got me a banjo for Christmas so I have been playing it for a few months. This is my first time playing, or recording publicly. I love playing banjo and it is coming a lot more naturally to me than expected, though I have a long way to go. I’m no Scruggs.

Read the next page, get all my pages in high res and more on Patreon starting at only $2/month.

In other news… I think I am going to stop producing Ask Axe Cop episodes, at least until I finish this story. I am doing too much right now. Doing so many different projects I am not finishing any of them. Songster pages will keep coming out on Thursdays and Bearmageddon always comes out on Wednesdays.

Ask Axe Cop #108: Gettin’ Fancy

I’m on vacation this week and next! Heading back to my old stomping grounds, Lakeside/Coos Bay/North Bend Oregon. If you live anywhere close enough, you really ought to come to my Axe Cop event in Coos Bay on the 16th. See the trailer for it below.

I’m going to take a break next week, but I’ll post something to keep you entertained. Thanks for reading!

Songster #7 – Origin of the Songster part 2


Hear the full song here.

I’m headed off on a trip to Oregon for about two weeks here, so I will be skipping a week after next week. If any of you want to send me a guest comic, I might be inclined to post it during that time. Email me if you are interested: [email protected]

The Songster prints are here! These are hand screen printed, 16×20. I hand-detail each one. See the video below. Because I am doing work on every print, I am lowering the availability of these to 50. I have already sold a good amount but if you want yours, get them while they last!

If you are anywhere near the small town of Coos Bay, Oregon on the 16th of March, stop by the Egyptian Theater. This is my home town and I will be having Axe Cop Night, where I will do a little presentation about creating Axe Cop and showing 6-8 of my favorite episodes.

Huge thanks to Parry Gripp for making such sweet music for this project. I can’t wait until it is all done and we have the coolest comic/album ever.

Read next week’s page and see this one in super high resolution when you join me on Patreon. Here is some recent Patreon bonus content for $5-10/month:

Flip through the new book I made with the Make a Wish Foundation

 Tutorial on drawing guns and other 3D objects using Sketchup

See the 13 page full color pitch bible for the show “Rocket Monster Super Club” optioned by Cartoon Network

Tutorial on drawing backgrounds and perspective using Sketchup and Manga Studio

Also, there is a private Facebook group where I check in every week, have a pipe and a chat about what’s been going on, answer questions and generally get to know you guys.

Try it for $5/month and see if you find it worth it. If you do a month and didn’t enjoy it, send me an email and I will refund your money.
