Instagram and news roundup: Art contest and more

It’s been a zany week for a number of reasons, here’s a quick roundup!

 

hypnosis

I was at Norwich Kitty networking where Chris from True Focus Hypnotherapy did a quick demo of hypnosis. For me I was keen to try it due to having a psychic character and a general fascination with how the mind works- what was surprising was I was conscious of everything as it happened, even when I couldn’t drink or remember my name!

Just a quick reminder that the Halloween contest is still on- we’ve had a couple of awesome entries from Leolionz and Haymaker Studios but don’t worry there’s still time to get an entry in (Big thanks to Susie for providing the colouring in page as well!)

 

Finally please remember the Perfect Platinum Collection is up now (click here for the Amazon page). I’m super grateful to Jess, Rachel, Jed, Nicholas, Van and everyone who contributed to this. For me the story is more personal than you’ll know and I am so impressed with the work that went into it.

We are looking for reviewers for this, email reynardcity@gmail.com for more info (for obvious reasons we need limited numbers for this as we are looking to sell copies as much as possible to raise money for the relaunch so free copies will be on a first come, first served basis)

William Butler Profile

William Butler is a comic artist and illustrator who is currently doing commission work for us on our Patreon. If you would like to see his full works you can back us for $1 a month here. If you would like to commission William you can contact him via email (wbutler1986@hotmail.com)

Tell us a bit about yourself

I attended animation school- my aim was to create movement as well as style, though I must admit I found the process difficult (it wasn’t just me a lot of others felt they emphasised pen pushing over creativity and felt let down by the system).

In 2002 I was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a mild form of autism that I believe has helped shape my creativity- when I was young I would absorb a lot of ideas through TV and comics, noting down ideas on scraps of paper and my exercise books.

What are your influences?

My main influences are Herge’s Tintin (the ‘straight line’ style he perfected), I first learnt to draw extreme muscle anatomy and comedic styles from the Beano and the Dandy and of course i used to read (and trace) from Marvel, DC and manga (though i prefer the pulp heroes)

What attracted you to working on Reynard City?

i’m more of a cat person really, but Reynard City seemed to offer a lot more than just the typical hero/villain plot (the characters aren’t too flashy or jingoistic). i was introduced to it at London Comic Con by Dan Butcher of Vanguard.

 

How did you find out about Reynard City?

My creativity has suffered a bit since I had to take on the responsibility of being my fathers carer from 2010 onwards. I’ve had to draw in what ever time I can get when i’m out and about (either in cafes, at work as a volunteer or at charity clubs).

I’ve only just started going to an art class in Guildford so when i was offered to submit my work style to Reynard City, i thought ‘What have i got to lose?’

Who would play you in the film of your life?

Hell if i know! I mean who else has my complexion or character? (Don’t know who is the main fashion these days) but if a bio film was done of my life, i’d want it to be honest and engaging!

(A bit like Attenborough’s portrayal of Charlie Chaplin- Editor’s note: If you’re a fan of Robert Downey Jr I heartily recommend Chaplin, he’s fantastic in it)

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?

As of this year & 2017, I’ve yet to get my life back on track (acquiring my new flat & trying to combat my lack of exercise/over eating issues). But from 2017/2018, in 5 years’ time I hope to have produced my own comic book series, acquire my own stand at comic con and if possible have a stab at the comics industry!

Update blog

Just realised it’s been a while since I properly blogged on here, so now seems as good a time as any to fill you in on what’s going on. We’ve also been on some webcomic directories recently so a big hi and thanks to everyone who has given us a go (we hope you enjoy the comic!)

For those who are wondering about Issue 21 each page is currently being posted on our Deviantart, Facebook and Twitter pages, with the aim being to help promote our reward page http://www.reynardcity.com/donate

This also offers the nifty bonus of giving our other artists working on the next issues a bit more time to work on them too. For anyone interested in sponsoring this issue there’s still time (www.reynardcity.com/advertise, where you can also find out about our new cartoon and graphic novel sponsorship packages)

In terms of the animation our aim is to produce a full clip and the opening credits in time for November. Why November? Because this is when Mustard TV, a new local channel is considering program submissions and pitched ideas. Given we have had encouragement from the Sy Fy channel we are hoping that we can get them on board in order to get the best possible production.

We are also still hard at work on the video game and I’m hoping to see a demo of that soon!

Finally don’t forget we are look for entries for our calendar art contest. As well as a calendar with your art in it you will also win shares in the profits of it too! Get your entries in before November via reynardcity@gmail.com (also where you can go if you have any questions about the comic and our project in general!)
