It seems like as we get closer to releasing this webcomic, my dude gets even more extra. The #STRUGGLEBRUNCH is real!
We’re in the third month of 2017 and IAHB is on the cusp of being a digital reality. Today is the official launch of Fave Comics, the online portal of all three (3) of my webcomics; however, this month is when IAHB will begin posting new strips every week (I’m debating on how frequently this will happen during the week…stay tuned).
It’s been a pleasure breaking out my Wacom tablet and “inking” new strips of this new webcomic. I’m sure the overall design will evolve as I get used to drawing these new characters, but it’s definitely a labor of love.
I’m beyond excited to capture another dimension of black manhood and mentorship (while having fun of course) that’s pretty non-existent in the webcomic / illustration world. Get ready!
It's no secret that HB is loosely based on a very talented photographer, fashion envelope-pusher and devoted father... who uses too much profanity for my taste 🙂 but I believe he has an amazing heart. He also hails from the Midwest (like me) and reps Detroit to the fullest.
I've been thinking about how to develop HB's love interest and I came across a lady on Instagram whose pulchritude exudes the essence of everything I want HB's main squeeze to be; visually and energy-wise. She has the sass and look that counteracts HB perfectly and my prayer is that my illustration of her captures such.
The interesting thing is that she's ALSO from Detroit. I can't make this stuff up.
I'm counting the days until IAHB hits the web and shows the world a different kind of black male mentor.
