Next up is an infographic spotted about the overuse of infographics that aren’t really more than a chart or graph with some pretty colors on top. This is only the top section to give you a taste, go check out more here. LINK »
Finally, check out this Awesome Parfait by Carolyn Sewell! It’s pretty awesome. LINK »
Amazing illustrator / comicker / colorist Dean Trippe has put together a series of images that are pretty much what they sound like. Here’s the first in the series, and pretty much gives you an idea of what you’re in for. LINK »
I read all the comments and emails that come in. I’m not one of these sunglasses-wearing hot shots that relies on interns or something. No, it is me in the trenches making things happen. This is why it warms my heart when I see comments like this on the site:
Here is that recap I promised, in the same vein as #100 and #200. As I said in the post on #300, thank you all for reading, commenting, sending in System in the Wild posts, and doing all the little things you do to support The System. I notice.
very day, Jessica Hische beautifully illustrates a letter to be used as a drop cap. Wonderfully diverse and unique illustration and typography all at the same time. And a new one every day! I’m pretty enticed by the whole thing, I gotta say. LINK.
If you ever see cool stuff like this, let me know through systemcomic at gmail, and I’ll post it on the site and give you credit. It’s what we’re all about here at Rosscott, Inc.
These are internals of actual equipment. We buy items, usually via eBay or Craigslist, and we take them apart. Sometimes this requires special tools. Then we photograph the pieces and meticulously render them in Adobe Illustrator. Troy Paiva and Garry Booth are two of the skilled artists who have ‘exploded’ designs for us.
They are amazing to look at and I’m sure they’d be amazing to buy, either for yourself or for me. Link.
UPDATE! Want TWO FREE TICKETS to the show? See below!
I do not talk enough about Super Art Fight on my own website. Let’s start with the basics. Super Art Fight is a live event that is part graffiti art jam, part wrestling match, and part rock show. If this doesn’t already entice you, I don’t think you’re a big fan of my comic. Want more? Here’s a video from a previous show (I’m the one in the amazingly blue jacket).
Do I have your attention now? Good. I know you’re thinking, when and how can I go to one of these amazing looking shows? The answer is THURSDAY. That’s right, the night before Otakon, you can attend Super Art Fight 4 at The Ottobar, this Thursday night.
Can’t make it but still jazzed about the whole thing? The artists draw exclusively from suggestions that are given by the audience both in person and online. You can submit ideas for things to draw on the “big submission post” right here. We’ll be posting vids and pics afterwards, so you’ll see how it turns out.
Oh, and here’s one more video of Nick pimping out the show.
So you’ve made it this far, and you are wondering about the free tickets? It’s simple! Email me (systemcomic at gmail) with:
Post TWO Art Fight suggestions as mentioned above, as well as mentioned here (but email them to me, like I just said).
