Art sale.

Hello friends of Noah!

I have some framed colored pen drawings that I’m hoping to sell here so I have some money for rent whilst I finish up drawing my graphic novel. These beauties are $100 each plus $10 for shipping. Wouldn’t you like something that I drew in the comforts of my bed hanging on your wall for all of eternity? Why not? Sure you would. Plus it’s all for a great cause.

Just email noahvansciver@gmail.com and specify which drawing you’d like.

Going, going

It takes a certain personality to be a cartoonist. I’ve always preferred to be by myself in a room than hanging out with a big group of friends. Drawing is a calming habit that I’ve kept up my whole life.  And I try to spread my work out as much as I can. I’m spinning a lot of plates right now. I’m real busy. Here are some of my works in progress:

 

These are pages from a comic I’m doing with 2d Cloud (the publisher of Death of Elijah Lovejoy). The plan is to have it printed on newsprint with a comic by Nicolas Bruetzman. 

Below are some pages from a longer story called “The Lizard Laughed” a father and son story. Also to be published by 2d cloud. 

 

Here are some pages from a comic book that I’m almost finished with that will be published by Retrofit comics some time this year I think. It’s called “1999” and is a 32 page one shot story. 

“1999” is similar in tone to a story I did in Blammo #6 called “Abbey’s Road” but it’s a bit more surreal. Below is the cover:

My big project is of course “The Hypo” which I probably would have finished years ago if I wasn’t constantly drawing other comics. Here’s a look at how that’s going:

So here it is. Not all of it. But some of the work in progress I have in my apartment. I really can’t wait for the day when I look back on this post and remember when these were the projects I was drawing. And by then I’ll have 10 more things to do…

What a life.

Recently I took part in a talk with Gb Tran, author of Vietnamerica. He’s a pretty awesome guy and his book is a HUGE accomplishment! Pretty incredible stuff.

Here are some photos from the event all taken by Christina Angel.

I would like to thank 5280 comic book classroom for asking me to take part in this event and for all of their hard work in having comics be recognized as a teaching tool and something to be respected. It was a fun night.

SPX 2011

August 10, 2011

I am attending SPX this year, and also I’m doing a reading at Atomic books in Baltimore the night before for their annual SPXPLOSION party. If you’re around you should go! It’s going to be great!

Nightmare.

August 6, 2011

Last night I had a nightmare that a friend came over to my apartment to visit, and I wanted to show him pages from my book in progress (The Hypo) but I couldn’t find the pages. I was tearing my whole place apart searching, papers flying everywhere, and I could not find any of my book anywhere. I was in a frantic state as I awoke in the middle of the night. The fan by the window was pulling in the warm air from outside of my window. The late night was dark, and I could hear some people still awake talking in my courtyard. In my dream I had been going crazy. Everything was dramatic and orange. Now sitting up in my bed, my girlfriend’s body peacefully rising and falling with every breath, I realized it was only a dream. That I had my book. That everything was okay. I stared up at the corner of the room, where two walls meet the ceiling. I noted the different shades of darkness there, and I fell back asleep.

A week ago I lost a page of my book. I was at Office max using the photocopier and in a hurry I left a page in the machine. It’s gone now. Who knows where. A trash can or maybe at a dump by now. I’ve got to be more careful and get out of my head.

Here’s a page from the book of mormon project I’m doing.
