Hello and howdy doo, I've been a long time lurker, occasional commenter, and now I figured I should post something. :> Name's Megs and I've been seen around the internet in some form or fashion as 'Westbaylen' or this very newly changed over LJ handle of 'A Different Drum' (Peter Gabriel for the win yo~). I also run Nomad Chronicle
which is one quarter theatrical three quarters portfolio site.
A little about me I'm a SCAD-Atlanta student, Sequential Art major, and Comics Editor of our student paper The Connector. My rather geeky claim to fame is doing the first and (so far) only
doujinshi for ABC's Lost which was pretty much drawn on a dare (yessir that's my story and I'm sticking to it
) where boys do bad touching and the producers due to the powers of the intarwebs found it
, liked it
, and a 50 pound heavier
version of me appears on the Lost Season 2 DVDs with a snippet of my art and a thirty second glimpse of my face and a very tacky red Dharma Initiative vest. (I love that thing ._.;;;;) Also if morbidly curious you can find the doujin online and in it's entirety following a link in my user info.
A second project that I persued which went to print in The Connector is the comic Yearbook: Momentary Thing which was a kind of coming of age story set against the backdrop of superheroes in highschool. Golly
who hasn't done that genre
before but I confess my weakness for it. It's YMT however that ends up being a prelude
into what's under the cut. Please see the below the new thing that keeps me up nights and invades my brain a little something I call 10-9.( 10-9 Pages 1 - 2 + Promo ArtCollapse )
