Draw Magazine # 12 Missing File
To those of you who purchased DRAW! Magazine # 12 (the Kyle Baker issue in stores now) : The downloadable Adobe Illustrator file won't be found at the url provided in the article, this is due to the publisher's 6 month delay in getting the magazine to the stores, a month ago or so I moved the file out of the main directory to avoid naming conflicts with my Mac iDisk server. The Illustrator file which accompanies the article, can be found HERE.
Oh! I almost forgot, the password to the directory is the five-letter name of the town found directly below the number 113 on page 48 (case sensitive). The file is the actual working document I used in creating the article and the illustration, it is NOT a step-by-step work file. The file is included as a guide to aid in understanding the process I described in the article, I'm not the best at explaining things in written form and the space in the magazine is limited so I figured that by looking at and disecting the actual illustrator document you might be able to get a better idea of the working method. Do feel free to use the patterns I have created, they are yours to keep, however, the rest of the work is NOT to be copied, altered, distributed or messed with in any evil manner or for any maniacal purpose other than your personal use and entertainment; Remember, God is watching you. . . I've been told.
Draw Magazine can be found at Tower Records/Books or at your local comic book store, if you can't find it in your area, order it online from the publisher (Twomorrows Publishing). If you still have questions after reading the article, I'd love to hear them, or rather, read them, so ask away by commenting on this post, I'd be more than happy to answer any and all of your inquiries. No hate mail please, I have plenty already, that sort of correspondence should be directed to my other email address at: firstname.lastname@example.org
In other news, my friend Ivan Brandon informed me that the last issue of NYC Mech 'Beta Love' just hit the stores yesterday, this issue features one of my scribblettes, I haven't seen it yet, but I can't wait to get my hands on Ivan & Andy's latest offering. If you're not familiar with NYC Mech, you can get started by reading it for free HERE.
