Transmission-X!

Well, TCAF has come and gone, which is kinda sad, because its still my favourite show and I had a great time there. I met a lot of wonderful people and shared a display room with a lot of my local cartoonist buddies. My thanks to everyone who took the time to come out, buy a print or a sketchbook, or just hang out at our exhibit.



A highlight of the show was the panel we did introducing Transmission-X, the webcomic site that I'm contributing to. All of the features are very strong, so its a real thrill to be associated with the group. My feature for Transmission-X is called Papercut, and will feature a new short comic story from me each month. The first one is already online so you can check it out for yourself instead of reading about me blabbing on about it. But just for the benefit of those who want to see a bit of artwork first, you can see the page 1 of the 4 page story below:

Michael Cho said...

Thanks very much, meg. Hearing that my work inspires a fellow artist is probably the highest praise I can imagine getting. Your work is fantastic too...but you know that! My wife and I were even checking it today and marvelling at your colour sense.

Michael,
The new work is gorgeous.... made me want to buy a pack! Ugh.

Can't wait to see the next installment.

Michael Cho said...

Paul: thanks, buddy. hahaha! I commiserate, dude -- while I was writing it and afterwards, I had the worst nicotine fit in months.

Suzanne Dargie said...

Wow! That Smoking one is truly amazing. It hits home!

Lovely page, Beautiful job capturing the mood. I know what you mean. weaning myself of the wacky backy, and a lot of the ritual aspects are the hardest to adjust too.

Michael Cho said...

Suzanne: thanks for the kind words, Suzanne. Hope you'll keep checking out the new stories I'll be posting in upcomming months.

Max: thanks, Max. Yeah, its all the 'ritual' moments that are the hardest to work out of the system, I find. Congrats also on your new book.

This page is so intense... I've never smoked a cigarette in my life (only a cigar, the day I got married), but - I'm sorry! - the last three panels really makes me wanna start! I've read the rest of the story and found both text and art beautiful.
