  • Half way over and well on our way, a kickstarter update | Salgood Sam ● Com
    stretch goals I might put up some more art and I m pondering if it makes sense to set up some specific retailer rewards now But in general I think mostly what this needs is more eyes I m doing my bit to get those and I m asking for your help in that too I ve got a good number of books left before we hit the caps lots of art and several affordable digital options including one that for just 10 gets you Dream Life five issues of Revolver and SadOcensSpaceBears Dream of a dark Dream in mp3 format And that lets me print two copies of my book AND you ll get all your files within a week of the end of the drive Why go for the stretch goals well the 3k lets me print 200 copies and visit about 6 retailers along the Windsor to Montreal transit corridor That s great but a modest launch Already we re looking at improving that here s what the goals represent 5000 500 books and the tour goes to Ottawa Quebec city out to the east coast to make one or more stops there Maybe even able to jump across the border a little to upstate NY and Vermont Pop over to Detroit when I m in Windsor 10000 1000 books maybe a few more as they start to get a lot cheaper to print And i can entertain taking the tour west of the great lakes ideally all the way out to British Columbia Possibly to Seattle and other major american cities like New York City Chicago This is a little speculative I m still working out the details but I travel on the cheap so at least some of that is doable if I can find retailers and accommodations to accommodate I wish I drove being a city boy and conscientious objector to fossil fuels most of the time I ve never learned and get around via bike and mass transit But it would be handy right about now I will make due though So all to say i m very happy we passed the all or nothing line but I want to do this right And we ve got the time left to get there And we ve gotten this far with really not a hell of a lot of people when you think about it 103 now at this rate we could reach 10k it with probably 300 or so backers So backers pass the word Lets get more people on board Thanks for your pledges and support and all the things l love you all to bits Here are some relevant links My twitter The Facebook page for Dream Life a late coming of age The official site though it s in a bit bare bones at the moment The free preview on Issuu embeddable and sharable Now here s me butchering the only song I know all the words too because I

  • Blog update: The Dream Life kickstarter is Live! | Salgood Sam ● Com
    Joe Shuster Awards a couple times For the new book launch I have a 61 page preview for download or viewing via Issue The old pages have been edited and such so I ve taken them down on the main site but you can still read them here on Facebook and here on Google I kind of like the full screen experience on those pages better anyway Thanks to everyone who left comments on the old posts it was really nice having some kind of feedback when i was posting them that way It ended up being ill paced I think to the format so I was not surprised it seldom got a lot of traffic but some days a good 50 to a 100 people would come and read the whole story And some of you left very encouraging and flattening notes You guys helped me keep feeling positive about this project through many darker days and hopeful what I was doing would find a wider audience Also thanks to Larry Cruz who helped me come up with a great way to describe the narrative style I ve been trying to develop with this story I ll be continuing to use this for some time I expect Dream Life is one of those weird comics It s more like an orchestral piece only you allow the artwork rather than the music to buffet you through the emotional highs and lows of each movement link Larry Cruz One Punch Reviews 4 out of 5 I m working on getting up a gallery of art that will be on offer as a reward to post in the next day or so Already two of my 90 s era pages are taken Encouraging I m going to be working on the two covers so i can get dummies of each version of the book made soon the limited run of 90 books for the Indiegogo backers and the Launch edition for TCAF and beyond I m going to be contacting some other shops including those that have stocked Revolver in the past but right from the start I can say it will be available at The Beguiling The Dragon and Strange Adventures But that said I really hope I can entice to get the books direct from me via this kickstarter You can get a full sweet of all three issues of Revolver and Dream Life for just 50 and help get a nice handful of copies made for the big launch The same set of books and a couple more issues of Revolver AND a downloadable copy of a really cool album more to come in a separate post about that shortly are also on offer as a grand digital option Share this Click to print Opens in new window Click to email this to a friend Opens in new window Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Click to share on Google Opens in new window Click to

  • Potpourri of bloggity | the work and the stuff, and a notable death | Salgood Sam ● Com
    along with this thought For those that wish to promote the idea that our inner thoughts have a real impact in the outer world around us I use inner and outer here pointedly Because really that s a false dichotomy propagated by the way we perceive thoughts vs the physical Good old Descartian dualism that seeks to elevate humanity and life by saying there is something other special about us that definitely separates us from the rest of the stuff and beasts and holds the promise of immortality for many Well here s my thoughts Our thoughts have influence on the physical world in two ways One when they lead to actions Ok obvious maybe but worth pointing out Most of the time even if you are unaware of how this is what is going on Two they are in fact properties of the physical world of your neurons They were never separate from the physical world in the first place If you thought so you were misled like most of us at one time or another To that end look at this and think about how as you do it s happening in your own skull as you form a memory of it Having a thought causes other neurons to respond and all kinds of interesting brain chemistry to happen They are not nonphysical things Imagining them as something that happens in another place space without forms this is a popular but unfounded idea A lot of the new age meme about the impact of our thoughts attributes the consequences of subtle behavioral interactions and body language to the supernatural It is unlikely that you never show any of your negative or positive feeling on your face stance or the way you interact with others Depending on how observant and sensitive people are to that they might know you feel in general terms good or bad about them or they may just have a gut feeling about it But one way or another most of the time they will pick up on something even if only subconsciously So intentional or not a lot of your thoughts lead to actions including pointed inaction and intentions even unconscious ones And all that has an impact On Turning 30 by Molly Crabapple Well written Resonates with my own thoughts witnessing how age anxieties mess with the minds of most women I ve known It gets to guys too but not nearly as intensely Also this struck me due to the fact I once witnessed a few older female comic creators whose work I admired go from trying to armor themselves over their mixed feelings of being seen as elder ladies not getting noticed as much and being catty about Molly who one of them had sat next to at a show She did not approve of the 20 something Molly s penchant for corsets and bustiers Personally I ve always been of the mind to and encouraged my partners to try to age gracefully Fit as we can manage into whatever decrepitude inevitable entropy has in store My hair has several silver strands now I like them They have been earned U S Government and Top Mexican Drug Cartel Exposed as Partners Sigh premise for the next HBO series Speaking of HBO crime stories I have been most impressed by True Detective Very tightly written so far And the cast is killing it More please Ok lets get into the work Dream Life pencils I like making unexpected places pretty Right now I m penciling my the final few pages for Dream Life book one It was supposed to be done a year ago but last Feb I had some test and found out I m Diabetic At the time i said little I was not sure what it would mean or how it would impact anything other than my penchant for surgery coffee and energy drinks was going to have to come to an end It runs in the family so not a total shock It had me worried for a bit but I responded to meds well and between diet and an increasing amount of exercise I ve been doing really well with controlling my levels At the time though I was about to enter crunch time on Dream Life and I realized something I was trying as a short cut for doing the tones wasn t cutting it and I d have to do some of them over and that there were things I wanted to fix with the story that I d only just noticed in the last round of edits I only had under 20 pages of 160 left to work on many mostly done even But in the time left and with the news about my health a hard bird to make it for TCAF 2013 was out Not unless I wanted to risk some serious health problems At 42 now 43 and having dodged a bullet with cancer I m not screwing around with that for anything So I put off Dream Life of a bit while I got other commitments done and got healthier And this month I m wrapping up that last bit of the book finally I have to say I do like me some delayed gratification One of the bits of new work I m doing is a scene I ve had in mind a long time It s a long scene that exploits place and a lot of public art to tell a story about a person Posted to the right here is a page from a scene of PJ walking through the city having just arrived reconnecting with the town and internally resolving some heavy stuff from earlier in the book On the left is the bottom later page from the end of the same sequence I m working in red felt tip pen here For pencils I use many different things whatever my mood calls for Sometimes it

  • The view ahead. | Salgood Sam ● Com
    crowdfunding Damn I feel like I really milked a luck goat on this one It is in fact not even the whole book I had in mind So I really hope people like it so I can make the second half or two thirds almost I suspect That would be wonderful The Launch edition will be a 161 pages of story B W 8 x10 trade paperback My longest work to date and most significant solo effort Not necessarily important to anyone else but me but I m pretty pleased with that This spread comes from a scene in the later half I really like It s a work of contemporary fiction with healthy doses of magic realism influenced by cinematic neorealism There s a Pulp Fiction inspired subplot and several interwoven storylines I hope it to be an engrossing and lush reading experience I m so glad I drew Rob Ford into this shot a year ago or so very fitting Revolver is an ongoing personal anthology series I m currently offering it in both print and digital modes from my site here The first two issues are already live and the third as I said is in the can So far Revolver has been a critical success but slow seller in part because there is only one me and I still have to spend most of my time drawing Not to beat a dead horse but that s something you could help with big time Find me on twitter here and RT about the books Revolver Three is going to be an exciting one for me as it contains two all new stories drawn mostly in just the last half a year I m starting a new series of short works to collect caled A Bastard s Tale Here on the left is a page from that They run together but are meant to work as short stories too Tailored to the anthology series format It s a memoir about my father Lionel and growing up in a counter culture My first attempt at something this intensely personal and frankly scares the shit out of me eh Hah But I feel like having thought about it for a long time I ve finally found a way into how I would enjoy sharing some aspects of that story I was thinking of it at first as JUST a book just about Lionel my father But I realized in the end my way into that story was via my POV so that would be an honest way to do it and it provided me with a good starting point finally Often a big hurdle that first step A Bastard s Tale is going to be fun as I have a more open pallet in terms boundaries on my drawing styles and techniques The bulk of the third vol of Revolver will be given over to something else completely different Dracula Son of the Dragon In early 2013 Mark Sable and
