I've been looking for months now (moved to Arlington last August) for a local zine or group to help publish and practice my art/writing with. I'm very passionate about honing and practicing my skills so that I can be a more effective storyteller.
I'm definitely a combination of a, b, and c. I'm an artist who loves exaggeration and minimalist designs, a writer that prefers surreal and progressive themes, and a fan of many different comics. I am a huge media consumer and I feel that every new thing I learn helps me in all 3 of those aspects.
My favorite comic book artist and writer is Hirohiko Araki of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fame. JoJo is a series that is so much better at action than any other comic book; it's really the culmination of the best that the genre can offer. Some of my other favorites include Brian K. Vaughan, Warren Ellis, Grant Morrison, Togashi Yoshihiro, and Osamu Tezuka.
The power to stop time. The implications of this power in a battle are so fascinating.
Gin and tonic.
Oi, I'm Liam. I'm an aspiring artist/writer of comics. I dig progressive topics and new media forms like video games as well as criticism of other visual artforms.
