Spirits Made Flesh - A Conversation With David Eugene Edwards of Wovenhand

Wovenhand’s upcoming Refractory Obdurate finds Edwards as loud and commanding as he’s ever been, his voice echoing over the post-rock tide like a modern day Ezekiel summoning the bones to rise up and walk.

"Don’t wait. Writers are the only artists I know of who expect to get somewhere by waiting. Everyone knows you have to dance to be a dancer, you have to sing to be a singer, you have to act to be an actor, but far too many people seem to believe that you. don’t have to write to be a writer. So, instead of writing, they wait. Isaac Asimov said it beautifully in just six words: “It’s the writing that teaches you.” Writing is what teaches you. Writing is what leads to “inspiration.” Writing is what generates ideas. Nothing else-and nothing less. Don’t meditate, don’t do yoga, don’t do drugs. Just write."

Deadly Premonition (Red Seeds Profile) - “Sinner’s Sandwich”

Deadly Premonition is one of the greatest games I have ever played. Ever. And in a way it’s responsible for the creation of Gourmet Gaming. A few months ago I hosted a play-through party and decided to serve up snacks inspired by the game to get everyone in the mood. There were doughnuts, pie (from Twin Peaks; Deadly Premonitions obvious source of inspiration), coffee, ‘the’ pickles and of course “Sinner’s Sandwiches”. 
The “Sinner’s Sandwich” is so iconic, I think, partly down to it’s rather unusual ingredients that Francis York Morgan provides with the air of an urban myth. It’s my belief that perhaps there’s a slight mistranslation though, the ingredients are: turkey, strawberry jam and cereal. I think that maybe the ‘cereal’ is a bit of a mistake, it sounds like it should probably be more of a turkey, conserve and stuffing sandwich but instead ends up as some fantastical mess, and better for it I say!
Mr. Francis York Morgan, You should try this wonderful lunch. It’s more than a delicious, tasty crunch. So says Mr. Stewart.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer as a LucasArts point and click adventure game

This was a lot of fun to do. Particularly in thinking about which scenes to draw and also realising just how suitable the Buffy stories are to this type of game. There are so many objects and puzzles to solve. It made me think it would be a good writing exercise to take your story and see if it would fit into this type of game. If it can’t then I suspect it’s probably lacking a little narrative propulsion. 

There are many, many other scenes I could have chosen (I’d still like to do 70s Spike on the subway car) but I thought one for each season was nice.

Some I chose because I wanted to show a specific location. Some I chose based on a gag that I thought would be funny e.g. Cordelia’s spatula and Willow’s broken crayon.

Here’s each episode I used as reference:

Season 1 - Welcome to Hellmouth

Season 2 - Inca Mummy Girl

Season 3 - Homecoming

Season 4 - Hush

Season 5 - Triangle

Season 6 - Grave

Season 7 - Touched

I’m going to be at the Bristol comic expo this weekend selling some prints.

The Great Evangelical Divorce

Prologue:

A palpable shift within Evangelicalism has been happening over the last two weeks. Conservative and Progressive Evangelicals have been raising their war cries against one another. While each side is sure of where they stand, I’m convinced that neither side understands how they got to…
