I was recently commissioned to create a pinup for Michael Vincent Bramley’s Sherbet Lock comic on Kickstarter. If you’re a fan of King of the Unknown (I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that your are since you’re on this website), then there’s a good chance you’ll dig Sherbet Lock, so head on over to the Kickstarter right here and check it out!
On a King of the Unknown related note, I know it seems like lately the only time I ever update anything on here is when its for a commission or some other piece of artwork I did leaving many of you to wonder “just when the hell is he going to update the site with a new KotU page?!” Well, to be honest I’ve been trying to find a print publisher for the comic so I can actually make some money doing this, and that way I wouldn’t have to take on so many other projects leaving me to focus on King. So I’ve been kind of holding back on updating the website with pages, because if there is a publisher that is interested then I’m not sure how keen they would be on publishing something that people can already get for free. That doesn’t mean there won’t be any new KotU pages up here, it’s just that there would be a delay between when it sees print and when I can put it online. That’s the plan anyway. So if there are any publishers out there reading this, and King of the Unknown tickles your fancy, then feel free to drop me a line
For any readers that still come back to the site with its lack of updates, I really want to thank you for hanging in there, and whenever the rest of the comic sees the light of day it will be worth it. I have been filling up notebooks with all the King of the Unknown stories I have planned, trust me when I say you haven’t seen anything yet.
Hey Gang! I should have some King of the Unknown news for you soon, but in the mean time I have some info on another project you might enjoy. The fine folks at Locust Moon Comics are at it again, this time with Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream. They have a Kickstarter going on for the project right now that features some pretty mind blowing talent on the book (and surprisingly me…not sure how I managed to sneak on there, but I’m pretty stoked to be a part of this project). Throw your money at them to get your hands on what is surely going to be the most beautiful comic you see all year and head on over to their Kickstarter.
Last fall this website needed help in a big way as we had to find a new host in a very short amount of time, but luckily we had L Jámal Walton on our side, and he saved the day by providing us with new hosting services and helping out with the transfer of the site. Now the very gracious and talented Mr. Walton has a pretty sweet artbook out called “Welcome to My Madness: the Art of L Jámal Walton” over on Kickstarter that you should all check out!
The concept behind the book is pretty rad too, here’s the rundown on the book:
“Life is a not a destination, it’s a journey.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
36 years, 3 months, 5 days… that is the span of Bob Marley’s life. That’s the “Marley Mark”.
As a teenager, L Jamal Walton was greatly influenced by the music and life of Bob Maely and remember saying that I would be satisfied living as long as Bob Marley. He set my life towards that destination… 12 October 2013. Now as that destination approaches, the foolishness of youth has been replaced by the realization that everyone’s journey is different. Welcome to My Madness is a 150-paged, full color art book that represents Jamal’s 36 year growth as an artist as he journeys beyond his Marley Mark.
So go over to Kickstarter and give some support to this cool project in anyway you can.
Also, more King of the Unknown coming soon! I promise!
