Swan song Anthology

I have finally finished a watercolour 5 page comic for the Cloudscape Swan Song Anthology. Gosh! it was brutal having to paint such large pages (14”x14”), but the final book is expected to be 12×12, to mimic a vinyl record sleeve. The pages are full watercolour on Fabriano SP watercolour paper.

The Cryptid Project: Ravings from a Skeptical Believer

I have been designing Cryptids for my next book project, more information and sketches will be available soon, first to see them will be Patreons. I have had a strong interest in cryptozoology and my scientific and rational mind often conflicts with my sense of adventure, so this should be interesting.

  Aside from those, I have other projects in mind, but I need to learn to focus on one project. You’ll see little sneak peeks of these on Patreon.

I’ve finished my school (Diploma in Veterinary Assisting, woo day job.) so now I’m back to just working full time and can dedicate my days off back to my kitties and of course, Hello, Albertosaurus.

It’s actually pretty close to wrapping up so I’m hoping to get this done fairly quickly and have at least a rough print sample for next Vancaf in May 2018. At that point we will also have our Kickstarter to cover the printing cost. If you’re a patron at certain levels on our Patreon you will be getting one of the first copies already.

At this point we are about ⅓ of the way through chapter 7, then chapter 8 is a short chapter then it’s done.

Sixtember is something new that was developed in a conversation with Siobhan. We were lamenting the lack of art challenges for September and wanted something link Inktober and sketchvember but with a little less structure as a warm up. #Sixtember was Siobhans idea to do Six minute sketches every day.  We were very surprised to see so many people start doing it right off the bat! It’s been really fun. We’re going to keep this up every year from now on 🙂

Gurukitty Studios wants to thank our Patreons for their continued support

Patreon Update:
We made a change to Patreon. Instead of Patrons getting the comic pages 1 day in advance they see the pages 1 week in advance of the public. There are also some perks like seeing a 2 page spread as one image instead of split on 2.

Hello, Albertosaurus is going to take up significant amounts of our time in the next year but Patreons will be able to see our progress. After Hello, Albertosaurus I will start announcing more ongoing projects. I just gotta Focus.

Aerial Escape is now available in full for “Secret comic pages Tier” Patreons.

Want to participate in our next comic project?

Hi Everyone,

I am working on a new comic project involving cryptids and folk lore and was interested in getting some information from you about your opinions on some cryptids to include in my comic.

I’m case you don’t know, a cryptid is a creature that has yet to be proven to exist, and Cryptozoology is the study of those creatures and attempting to prove or disprove their existence.  Before you laugh that off as just goofy pseudoscience remember that the okapi was once a cryptid. The okapi was described to white people by native people in Africa and was considered a myth (by white people) until it was seen by and properly described and classified into the current system, the Linnaeus system. To be fair that system is a long process, involving a lot of research that needs to be peer reviewed before being accepted, so it’s a good system.

So, having said that, I pose these questions, is it possible some of these creatures exist? Are they a new species, or just mistaken identity? What is your general opinion on the cryptids I will be listing below?
I would like a variety of quotes from people who are skeptics and believers.

PLEASE NOTE: Your comments on this issue may end up in my final book (credited to you, of course…if you want), as quotes, so try and limit your answers to a kind of sound bite type response, or be aware that I may only use a portion of your answer. Not all responses will make it in, if you don’t want your quote used in a book, then please don’t respond to this. Responses to this article will be considered permission to use your response as I see fit in my weird little comic.

Cryptids in question:

Sasquatch/Bigfoot
Jersey Devil
Flatwoods monster
Ogogpogo/Loch Ness
Chupacabra
Bunyip
Kraken
Caddy
Yeti
Kappa
Mothman
Wendigo

You don’t need to provide an opinion on all, just ones you have an opinion on.jacko copy
