Comic posting!

Comic posting! published on No Comments on Comic posting!

Levi Levi Chapter 3: Epic Problems at APPIC is posting! …every Thursday. I know it’s been a while, but the story of Levi’s adventures at the Amateur and Professional Private Investigator’s Conference is about to unfold.

Also starting up again are random comics on the Drawing board.  They will be posting intermittently on Tuesdays and have all sorts of sarcastic commentary on libraries and copyright, fooling around by Carmine and Vinny, and bits and blurbs from movies, songs, and books.

 Allow me to introduce you to Aliester Bean and Sean McAllister of the Aliester & McAllister detective agency.  You may have recognized them from the movie advertizement on Levi’s conference brochure.  They are a little more attracted to money and fame than you would expect from private investigators.  Through elbow rubbing and persistence, they landed their own movie and an amount of popularity that makes them immediately unpopular with most other private detectives.  You’ll see more of them in Levi Levi Chapter 3:  epic problems at APPIC.

Not all investigations can be conducted without coming under the scrutiny of the very person you are investigating.  This scrutiny, obvious or not, can interfere with your investigation and create a danger to you.  In this session, learn methods of assessing your position in your own investigation and minimizing personal risk without giving up your footing on a case.

D.C.I. Barnaby -“How to Solve the Case with Critical Thinking and Delegation”

Harry Dresden -“Using Unconventional Methods While Working with Diverse Cultures and Interests”

Hetty Wainthropp -“Retirement, Family, and Business:  balancing the demands of the female investigator”
Private investigating as a woman comes with unique obstacles and challenges.  Examine what the cases of successful female investigators, like Phryne Fisher, Ms. Marple and Sally Lockheart, can teach us about managing life’s pressures while solving our cases.

Jonathan Quayle Higgins III -“Managing the Private Investigator in Exotic Locales”
Private investigators must be self sufficient, self starters.  The nature of the work eschews reliable communication and location. Yet they must be managed like any other employee, are prone to the same amounts of distraction, and subject to increased levels of danger specific to the environment and culture.  Learn tips on managing investigators with focus on exotic locations.

J. Constantine -“Dangerous Partnerships for Ultimate Ends”
Cultivating and tending relationships with dangerous people in order to build a network that will help you out of any jam.

I almost forgot, a couple of weeks ago I gave theLeEMSmachine a bit of a facelift.  A new, click-able, front page directs to some new landing pages for my biggest projects of the moment.  Levi Levi and No Evil both have character galleries that I will continue to fill out.

Announcing a return

Announcing a return published on No Comments on Announcing a return

Yo duders.  I know Levi Levi and I have been well nigh silent for a long time, but October approaches now and it is always my month of prolific posting.  This year will be no different.  Keep your eyes peeled for a special October drawing series and Levi Levi’s return to the now.

The Secret is Murder – posting on Tumblr

The Secret is Murder – posting on Tumblr published on No Comments on The Secret is Murder – posting on Tumblr

Yup, Levi Levi is on hiatus, but the Levi Levi mini comic ‘The Secret is Murder’ is posting on Tumblr RIGHT NOW.  What?  You say you’ve never heard/red/seen it before?  That’s ’cause it’s never been on the internets.  Only a few very special people with paper in their hands know The Secret is Murder!

Check out the first posting:  The first of my bonus Levi Levi story from… | ALL ABOUT LEVI LEVI.

Image (50)I am enamored of floor plans.  I don’t gaze wistfully or draw them all the time, but I have amassed a collection of imaginary houses and whenever we are planning a move one of the first things I do is draw a plan of the new place.

So I got to thinking, Why shouldn’t my characters have floor plans? That is, why not combine a couple of passions and flesh out the world I’m writing in/about.

This here is the first.  Levi Levi’s apartment and office.  He thought about staging his desk in the front room, but decided he didn’t really like when people sat across from him there.  He’s not the neatest person, but he doesn’t collect much stuff, so his place always looks spare.

Hello lovely peoples!  I have made a tumblr for Levi Levi to gather all the character art, updates, and news in one place.  I will talk about chapter ideas that I have previously only hounded friends with in the speaking world.

I am also planning on an exclusive tumblr release of a bonus Levi Levi story that I did for mini comics day and that only 3 or 4 people in the world have seen (’cause it’s never been online).

We’re gonna test this out ya’ll.  Tell me what you think.

LeviAnnie&AlvinHalloweenAnd the conversation goes something like this:

Alvin (yeah, all grown up):  “What are you supposed to be?”

Annie:  “I’m a gorgon, you know – Medusa- What are you?”

Alvin:  “Ah, um, I dunno – an army dude?”

Annie:  “An army dude…because of cammo pants?  Why didn’t you even try?”

Levi:  “Hair’s too long, kid.”

Annie:  “It’s not just that – not that you’re any better.  I mean, you really went all out with that makeup.”

Levi:  “Thank you!”

Annie:  “I was being sarcastic.”

Alvin:  “Are those snakes real?”

Annie:  “Of course not.”

Alvin:  “I think one just hissed at me.”
