The Songster Page 11 – Foxes the Size of Couches

I’m so excited to be merging the motion comics voice of Axe Cop, Dave DeAndrea, into this project. Click the track to hear Dave rock the vocals on Axe Cop’s song Foxes the Size of Couches.

Want to see the next four pages and a bunch of animation I did a while back (and that’s just what I released today!), check out my Patreon starting at only $2/month.

Also, check out my store. Many of the items on it are exclusive to my store and come directly from me. Use the code HIGH FIVE to ger 5% off. Or IMNEWHERE if you have never shopped at my store before for a one-time discount of 17%.

We have some exciting plans for this comic. It’s already got songs. What if I said video game?  That’s all I’ll say for now.

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.

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.

Songster #6: Origin of the Songster – Part 1

 

All right, song 2! I feel like PT makes this feel like Axe Cop’s “Temple of Doom” story. I don’t know. Thanks Parry for giving us more beats to get down to. Part two comes next week, or you can get the full origin on Patreon.

Check out this blog about the details and exclusive items for my trip to Seattle for ECCC. Here are a couple things I’ll have available…

Limited Edition Print

 

Coloring Kit

 

New Stickers!

(Based on art from the first-ever Axe Cop screen print!)

Get all the details in the blog. See you there!

Songster #3: Commence Rocking


I’m excited to present you with the first musical page of comics in the history of my comic, and possibly the world.

This is a split song. The second half will come with next week’s page (or you are already jamming out to it if you are a Patreon head chopper).

Thanks for keeping up with Axe Cop. Make sure not to miss the latest Ask Axe Cop about Sockarang’s socks, and if you aren’t reading Bearmageddon, you should.

See you here next week for the next half of the song. You can’t trust a guy with a half mustache. I live by that.
