I wanted to take a little time out to call attention to the web comic Surreality, created and inked by fellow alumni Caleb King and Carla Wyzgala. This coming April will be the mark of our first anniversary of releasing our online web comic.

Above is a quick look into how I apply colors to the comic. This is my first time as a colorist and I think that in the last year of working on this I have learned a lot (especially about cheating with layers). Caleb is a wonderful writer and artist as well (not to mention a pretty relaxed slave driver). Carla and I have been wanting to collaborate on something for a while, so I was her first choice in a colorist, and I am happy to have not let them down.
Our comic has been a great success, and last summer we were pleased to reach our goal to fund a special anthology comic featuring the works of Andrew Day, Lucas Durham, Nicolas Giacondino, David Pauwels, and of course ourselves. Could there be another anthology in the future of the comic? We'll have to wait and see.
