THE GREAT WORK – Patreon Page

dancehttp://www.patreon.com/tommiekelly

I’m working on a new comic called THE GREAT WORK which as the name suggests is a story about self-discovery, magick, the shadow aspect of humanity and revelation. It has occult themes but think of it more like a soap opera than the usual occult themed horror stories. It’s about a group of friends in their 20’s who all have different secrets that are about to come to the surface.

HOLY NUMBERS – THEM pdf Bundle

The Holy Numbers and THEM are two pieces of work that I am extremely happy and proud of. As much as they are how I planned them they also totally took their own journey.  I wish they were more popular than they are, as I think they do have something to offer that a lot of other comics going at the minute don’t.

If you’d like to read them or just support my work, here’s a link to PAY WHAT YOU WANT to buy PDF copies of both books.




WHAT ARE THEY ABOUT?

THEM
Roman, a struggling but dedicated painter is trying to find his place in the world. He never quite fit in with the rest of the world and feels that somehow he is different than most people. He believes that the Universe is in some way, out to get him, and that chance, luck and opportunity are passing him by. However, a new idea has come into the world which has his future in mind. Roman soon finds the world is a quite different place than he thought and that his destiny is much more in his own hands than it seems.

THE HOLY NUMBERS
The Holy Numbers by Tommie Kelly, tells the story of a spiritual movement founded by a man calling himself Ravensdale, who claims to have experienced some kind of spiritual enlightenment, but dies as the movement is becoming huge leaving behind people who have a much different vision than his.

ART: My Forgotten Sacred Heart

My Forgotten Sacred Heart
My Forgotten Sacred Heart – Tommie Kelly

CLICK IMAGE FOR BIGGER VERSION.

My first finished piece of 2014. It’s titled “My Forgotten Sacred Heart”. All done digitally 90% Manga Studio, 10% Photoshop.

Really like this one, it’s pretty much exactly how I seen it in my head before I started.

On the downside, I saved over the high resolution version with a low resolution flatted version. I managed to kinda save it but I did lose some quality. So probably won’t be able to do a print of this one.

Zara Rogers and the Future

Zara Rogers probably isn’t going to happen. At least not for the foreseeable future.

I have thought long and hard about this but it has become clear to me that I was doing Zara Rogers for all the wrong reasons. The drastic change of style and theme was basically my reaction to the reviews of THEM and The Holy Numbers, where they say the story and colouring are OK but the art itself isn’t great. In fact the word amateurish was used more than once.

While I am aware that one shouldn’t give too much credence to reviews this certainly got under my skin. The fact that THEM did so poorly sales-wise also added to the shaky feeling. A huge part of me wanted to show everyone: “Look I can draw, I can do the comics the way you want me to” which so resembles “Please Love me” it’s ridiculous.

So I have spent the last few weeks staying away from social media to a large extend to try to get my mind together on what the future is going to be. For the first time in years I do not know what my next comic project is going to be, but I do know that it won’t be a comic that I try to sellout to try to impress people or attempt to become worthy.

While I am aware of all the room for improvement in my art and style, it’s the one I am going to pursue as it’s the style I enjoy doing the most and enjoy looking at the most, and if that means that my current level of success is all that I will ever attain, I am OK with that.

Anyway, sorry to those who were looking forward to the comic. It might have been a decent comic, but it wouldn’t have been an honest one.
