After much head scratching I finally managed to add comments to the blog.  They're on September Roads, reviews and 52 trees.  Now to wait with baited breath to find out if anyone other then me is actually looking at any of this.

Water (World Blog Action Day)

Posted by Peter Bangs on Friday, October 15, 2010,
I don't know how many people will read this, probably tens at most, but World Blog Action Day is about making people think about stuff that makes them uncomfortable and so it has an instant appeal for me.

The topic this year is water.  Lack of decent drinking water and sanitation kills more people than war and every other act of violence every week, it just doesn't make the headlines or the evening news programme. News isn't news anymore.  It's entertainment, it's numbers.  If Premier L...

little construction books

Posted by Peter Bangs on Thursday, October 7, 2010,
Kevin Huizenga has revealed on his wonderful "Under Construction" blog that he plans out his comics in mini books made from stapled scrap paper.  I came up with something similar myself a year or two back and have been using them to work out a number of story ideas.  a couple of them are shown below.

As you can see I get a little more anal and obsessive than Kevin H.

Current projects 2

Posted by Peter Bangs on Wednesday, October 6, 2010,
The other project is making the book of The Daily Viking.  This has been a longer job as book construction fascinates me and I want to get this right.

The book is printed on A5 sheets of various pale shades from The Paper Mill.  I then drilled the pages with a tiny little hobby drill 5 times about 3 centimetres from the left edge and used a Japanese binding technique, substituting a fine wire for the usual cord.  The covers' curently unfinished, are jointed and covered with a grey/blue scrapbo...

Current projects 1

Posted by Peter Bangs on Wednesday, October 6, 2010,
Working on a couple of projects at the moment.  The first is a piece of 3D work, a cartoony figure of an old man.

Unfortunately I leapt into it with little planning beyond what it would look like and fell afoul of some very obvious problems.  Ideally it should have been built around a wire skeleton and that would have given it a degree of support. With that support parts would not have fallen off.  I'm now left trying to decide if I can rebuild itand secure the various limbs and more to the po...

About Me

Peter Bangs Married, two kids, mortgage, working for my wife, looking after our two year old son and frankly terrified. Welcome to my little bit of sanity. I've spent 39 of my 46 years wanting to create stories and comics and achieving very little (a 200 page comic and a 24hour comic 10 years or more ago and very little since) so this is where I'm getting serious. Do work, put it out there, move on. Currently blog, reviews and a bunch of artwork will appear here, comics will be hosted on issuu on the words and pictures page. Now let loose the dogs of war. ( that would have been so much more effective in capitals with lots of exclamation points. )
