Dang time flies. Been a long time since I've put anything up, but that doesn't mean that I haven't been busy. Just not as busy here. This past month, I had the very cool experience of seeing my colors show up in a real-life comic book. The book, Godsend #1, is an independent comic from About Time Comics. You should check out their website, www.abouttimecomics.net/, or follow them on Facebook as they're doing some really cool stuff. If you want to check out Godsend #1, you can find it here: www.indyplanet.com/index.php?i…, on indyplanet.com.

Coloring an entire book was admittedly an exhaustive, but really cool, endeavor. There's some tediousness associated with it, but seeing the book really "come to life" as it were with the colors put in was awesome. As I got towards the end and showed a few pages to my wife, she commented that seeing it in color made her want to know more about the story. (Granted, it's my wife, and she's always supportive of my work, but I still thought it was neat.) Hopefully others had, and will have, the same experience.

In the meantime, family and work have kept me plenty busy, but I've eked out some time to do some sketching of late. The local comic shop contacted me about supporting their Free Comic Book Day activies, and sketching is something I really need to do more of to get ready for that. It's not really a strong point of mine, but I enjoy drawing all the same. I decided that I wanted to do a set of sketch cards, and since the X-Men were the first comic that I ever got into, it was only natural to begin with them. I'll post a few of my favorites individually and then a page of all of them together.

Anyway, I've had fun doing that and hope to find/make time to get into some colors here in the near future as well.

Enjoy!

Hi Nate! Thanks for watching my work! I totally recognized yours (this is Brent Hill from Spanish Fork), and I hope things are going great for your family and your art!

Hey Brent,

I saw something on facebook where you mentioned having a DA account so I looked you up. Your stuff is good. I loved your Merida portrait. Keep it up. Family is good and healthy. Work is in Lehi now, so living it Payson, it doesn't give me as much time as I'd like to have for art and play.
Anyway, keep working on your art. When do you actually finish school? Good luck with it all.

I've been taking the semester off from school, and I'm not sure when I'll actually be done! We're doing well, and Erika just got a new job at the Provo Library that will pay well! I'm trying to get some bigger projects done right now, so hopefully they'll keep moving along! Have a great day!

What's your wife doing at the Library? My dad is a librarian, so you can imagine my love of all things library. The Provo library is fantastic (a whole heckuva lot better than Payson's). Good luck getting done, whenever you do, and enjoy the ride while it lasts. Keep practicing.
