My Debut at Fuel Your Illustration

Fuel Brand Network

So if you’ve been living under a pretty solid rock that past year or so, you might not have heard of the Fuel Brand Network. It was founded by Adelle Charles and Joshua Smibert, and together they have created a virtual treasure trove of amazing resource magazines online. The Fuel Brand Network is made of websites for bloggers, photographers, applications, branding, coding, user interface, production, writing, motionography, venture, and all creative minds. And, of course, there’s the popular Fuel Your Illustration, my personal favorite.

Fuel Your Illustration

A little while ago I sent in a request to do a guest piece for FYIllo and got to talking to the editor, Alex Eben Meyer. Well one thing led to another, and the next thing I know, I’m on the phone with Joshua Smibert himself about some of the ideas both he and I had for the website. So now, I am excited to announce that I am an official contributer/writer for Fuel Your Illustration (look, I’m even in the about section).

My debut article is currently up, entitled “For the Love of Calvin” – it’s a short description about my experiences with Calvin & Hobbes growing up, and the new and long-awaited documentary in the making called Dear Mr. Watterson. Check it out, let me know what you think, and look forward to more articles from me that may or may not include concept art from my favorite MMORPGs, interviews with art directors, webcomic techniques and process, and much more! And don’t forget to check out all the other sites in the ever-growing Fuel Brand Network.
