Welcome to The Tibari Outpost
The SPECTRE are a group of Tibari that explore the galaxy for uninhabited planets with natural resources that can be claimed for Zan Tibar; the Tibari Homeworld. Hundreds of SPECTRE teams have been deployed to explore the various sectors of space. Each team occupies an outpost within the sector they are exploring.
The Tibari Outpost is the small moon base called Mineta located in the Kwari Sector. Spark & his Team use Mineta as their base of operations while they explore the Kwari Sector.
I’ve been working really hard to get my inking done for Spectre: Chasing Shadows. I’m simultaneously writing the outline for the 3rd Book, Spectre: Rogue Asteriod. Or at least, that is what I’m calling it. I’ve been making some good progress and am a little ahead of schedule. I’ve inked 31 1/2 pages in a little more than a month. I’ve also finished 6 pages. Meaning, I’ve cleaned them up in the computer and added some of the effects that I can’t draw by hand. I’ve also started researching some kids book publishers so that I can submit my book to a publisher that might help me. The goal is to be finished with the next Spectre Book in about 4-5 months from now. Hopefull less.
The Ucreate Comics competition ended up being a disaster. The people running the contest made blunder after blunder while running it. The worst part is, I was legitimately in first place for the first 2 weeks before some people who were allowed to trade votes blew past me. Aside from that, I finally gave a title to the next Spectre Book. Spectre: Chasing Shadows is the next installment. I have finished final pencils. Did my first pass at editing and I am now ready to Ink. And even more exciting, Jeff Smith started following me on Twitter yesterday…See the article I wrote about him here.
Just entered my Spectre Comics Concept into a Competition called Ucreate Comics Pitch 100. Currently tied for first place and this is a battle…Need your vote! Click to vote for Spectre Comics. You’ll need to register to vote, but it only takes a minute to sign up.
Just finishing up Spectre Book 2, page 95…only 17 pages left to pencil…Then I can proceed to editing and inking. Just entered this book into the Ucreate Comics competition….if you want to support the cause, click this link to Ucreate and vote…takes less than 2 mins to register and vote…but it will help Spectre Comics get out to the masses.
Tomorrow I’m going to Chicago Comicon…Looking forward to it. I’m currently working on Spectre Book, Page 83. That means I have less than 30 pages to pencil. I expect to be inking this book in the next few months. Once I start inking, it will move a lot quicker. I have to be done by C2E2 next year. At tomorrow’s comicon, I will be taking a lot of photos so I can see what good set ups are for artist alley. If all goes well, I hope to be setting up a table and hocking my wares, generating some buzz and getting some exposure for the book.
I’m working in high gear. Spectre Book 2 has 74 Hard Penciled pages, less than 40 to go. I’ve just introduced my newest character into the story. I’m enjoying drawing him and getting familiar with the character I created many years ago. I think the first sketch of this character was drawn in 2007 or 2008. I think he’s one of my favorite characters that I’ve created. Also, I’ve been researching the possibility of publishing this new book with a publisher. I’ve identified several I want to learn more about. I still believe in Createspace as a way to publish your books, however, there’s something to be said about having a company behind you. Unless they take too much of the pie. But again…still doing research. And finally, I’m getting ready to go to Chicago Comicon in a few weeks. I got my tickets and I’m ready to go. I am hoping to display my work at a table there next year.
