Tom Hart's 10 rules for drawing comics.

Dean Haspiel's 10 Rules for Drawing Comics.

Last day to donate to my Kickstarter.

Check it out if you want a CD (or a drawing).

Thanks, everybody for donating!
Dov Torbin is raising funds for There's No Basement at the Alamo: An Album by Dov Torbin on Kickstarter! I recorded my first full length album this past spring. Raising $$ to help pay for mastering and the cost of CDs.

Benjamin Marra's 10 rules for drawing comics

#comics #10rules
