Hey Millarworld community! I wanted to start a thread to shamelessly pimp my wares and introduce myself. I’m a professional graphic designer working in the tech and publishing industries. I’ve done a lot of work with making of art books for properties such as Krampus, Terminator, Ghostbusters, Halo 5, Marvel and DC etc for various publishers. I’ve also been doing a lot of design work with indie comic creators on kickstarter based projects and indie publishers. My website is at: www.christopherkosek.com
In terms of comics, i’m pursuing writing primarily. I have an art background, but my skills are limited. As a writer my biggest hurdle as been getting collaborations going, so i’ve drawn/lettered/colored more of my own work than I would have liked. 2016 I want to have more collaborations working towards a one shot or mini series with a great creative partner. Feel free to leave feedback, observations or drop me a note! Thanks for looking!
- The Default Trigger: a 52 page digital graphic novel I wrote, drew and self published. Its a sci-fi noir about student loan debt conspiracies. I got some good press on Boing Boing, The Beat and on some podcasts. A great learning experience, but it was a lot of work.
“Prepped” was short story collaboration with Shawn Daley on art and Lesley Atlansky on color. Its an 8 pg story set in a bunker after something awful happens in the world, and two men coming to terms with it.
“Ascending” is a one-shot I wrote and drew about a mysterious visitor at the Albuquerque Balloon fiesta. This project came out of frustration at having a few false starts with collaborators and just wanting to get a story finished and out there.
“T or C” a collaboration with artist Devin Kraft, is a supernatural western exploring how an odd little town in New Mexico may have actually gotten its name. This was my first attempt at lettering and coloring someone else’s art!
“Ex Libris” was a webcomic that I ran for about 6 months and my first real attempt at comics. It was designed and drawn to print specs and posted online hoping to self publish later. I did all the writing and art on it, mostly in the computer, and it was a great learning experience. The story follows the adventures of a teenager who finds an ancient spirit inside of an old book, and together they fight an evil taking over their futuristic mega city. I got through the first chapter (need to post that all online again), but couldn’t keep up with the grind of publishing and maintaining a webcomic. I’m using some of these characters in my current writing project though.
