Zorphbert & Fred (and myself) were featured as a family friendly-comic in this article about quality time spent with your kids, creating comics! After all, comics are how many of us started reading, drawing, writing, and using our imaginations! As the author Michael Corley explains, all children are artists… it’s once they become older and start comparing themselves to other that they start telling themselves (or listening to others) that their at is bad and stop growing as artists. Parents and teachers should be there to encourage them to use cartooning as a fun way to express their ideas, stories, jokes, and artistic stylings! Check out this article, complete with video, supply list, and just 7 easy steps, to help your child’s imagination & talents flourish using comics as a medium!
Z&F Featured in a Card Game?!
You read that right! Zorphbert, Fred, Nettika and the Weird Kid were included in the development of a new “Magic-The-Gathering-esque” card game called WAGON Webcomic Battle! These 4 cards are apart of the “Geek Deck”, and you can purchase the game/deck HERE. The object of WAGON Webcomic Battle is to defend your Life Panels from your opponent’s attacks while trying to destroy their Life Panels. The first player to lose all of their Life Panels loses the game. The Geek Deck is themed around the power of the Geek, which is to combine the forces of deceptively weak-looking characters and use unothodox strategy to overcome seemingly unbeatable opponents. Truly in this dawn of a new beginning, the Geek shall inherit the Earth.
Sounds like a geeky good time to me!
Finally, the New Portfolio Site is HERE!
As part of my off-season to-do list, my updated portfolio site was a hefty feat to accomplish, but it’s finally completed and LIVE! Dawn Griffin Studios (.com) includes ALL my work: graphic design, illustration, Z&F, the Abby’s Adventures kids books, and whatever else I churn out. Now in a better formatted website (using WordPress just like Z&F does), I can easily update it when something new I deem worthy is created. I’d also like to mention that it’s the perfect place to start if you were thinking about hiring me– as a designer, illustrator, commission artist, or what have you.
