Making Comics

March 23, 2014

panels-and-gutters-sample-pageWhile there haven’t been many updates here in recent months, I’ve been busy with comics related work in the form of writing a series of tutorials on Making Comics with GIMP, and doing some major updates to my GIMP Book plug-in.

In the meantime my little 9 page comic has been moving along exceptionally slowly. I’ve pencilled all the pages, and inked two, but coloring still remains. Eventually, whenever it’s finished, I’ll publish it here on

“The Raft and Other Stories” available in print!

July 21, 2011

The Raft and Other Stories cover, by Ragnar BrynjúlfssonThe Raft and Other Stories” my new comic book is out! You can grab your copy here!

The book collects five of my comics, The Raft, Haul, Kamikaze, The Pillow Method and Tim, drawn over the past 10 years, in a nice 152 page paperback book. The most recent comic, The Raft, tells the the story of two boys who build a raft together and, each with their own hopes and expectations, sail it to a nearby island.

Like the other comics in the book, I’ll be making “The Raft” available on-line, starting August 1st, publishing three new pages each week. This is a bit of an experiment on my part, as I feel it’s important that gay and questioning youth, who may not be in a position to buy the book, have easy access to queer tales too.

Of course, if you like my comics, I hope you buy the book, and give multiple copies to all of your friends, thus motivating me to draw even more comics. After all, it’s much more pleasant to read a good comic book on nice quality paper, than of a harsh computer screen.
