This is great story of an artist finding inspiration and an idea of what to draw for a 2 page challenge based on ‘The Orb’. Very enjoyable!
Drawing is what I did all the time in my earlier life, starting with the margins on pretty much every bit of paper at school. Later, in the days before computers, I’d get asked by friends and colleagues to make posters, stationery, bumper stickers, wine labels…. all sorts of graphics projects which I was always delighted to do. Then somehow, it all got put to one side. I was renovating old houses and making jewellery, then working full-time for an environmental group, lived in Japan for awhile and did freelance translation when I came back, had two beautiful boys, set up a small veggie sushi business, and got busy playing and teaching music.
Now, after too many years of watching enviously from the sidelines, I’m so happy to be back. And I’ve left behind some of my old striving for technical perfection and fine detail that used to be so frustrating, and now embrace a bit of wonkiness. Not too much, I hope. It’s exciting to be learning new things. I’m still drawing by hand, though, just like in the old days.

Bloodlust Comics is formed of Péter Fábián (Art) and Viktor Kozmajer (Story)
This is awesome! Such a strong story and the art work is perfect for it. I would love to see this as a full series, eagerly anticipating the next instalment of this incredible story.
I was born in 1986, Balassagyarmat, Hungary. I’m a graphic artist and I’m working as a tattoo artist for 6 years. I’m the creator of a hungarian author’s comic series, called Bloodlust. I’m work on the series with Viktor Kozmajer. I’m the comic artist of Bloodlust, my main activity is the drawings. We write the series together with Viktor. Until now, we printed 4 graphic novels in our own cost.

I was born in 1987, Balassagyarmat, Hungary. In my freetime, I’m working on our own hungarian author’s comic series, called Bloodlust with Péter Fábián. I’m the co-writer of Bloodlust, the webmaster of http://www.bloodlust.hu, and I’m try to help Péter coloring our comic. I like comics since I was a child, I like drawing very much, but I haven’t draw an own comic, I just always bombing Péter with my ideas 🙂

A Lovely comic about the unknown and fears. Great read with lovely artwork!
Miriam Kendrick is a freelance artist living and working in Kent. Although having spent her lifetime so far drawing and painting, she has only been drawing comics for the past three years. Having begun drawing short comic strips for fun, she quickly recaptured the love for story telling which she’d had as a child and began writing short stories in comic form, most recently including a mystery set in the noble town of Tunbridge Wells.

This reminds me of element stones in Pokemon that can change certain pokemon into even cooler pokemon. I think this is an awesome story and great artwork.

This is a great way to have a comic, no panels, no story and just an introduction. Now you can use your imagination to continue the story.
My full name is Stylianos (Stelios) Tomazos. I come from Greece and I was born on October 22nd, 1984 in Chios Island (an island in the eastern Aegean Sea). At the age of 18, I came to Athens to study in the University. At the time being, I continue living in Athens. I have a degree in English Language and Litterature and another one in French. My postgraduate studies were focused on “Educational Technology and Human Resource Management”. I also attended a two-year programme on 3D Animation. I love reading novels (Classic Litterature, Modern Litterature) and, of course, comics. I am a superhero comicbook fan, but I love European comic albums (French, Italian) and crime stories, as well. I spend my leisure time working out in the gym, writing comicbook scripts and drawing comics for contests or for my personal projects.
This is my Deviant Art webpage where you can find more samples of my artwork:

Never Give Up
What a lovely moral to this story. I love a comic that either makes me laugh or gives me advice, this one just gave me advice that i so needed right now.
I’ve been in the last couple of issues of AIC (Lifeboat and Great Tree) and resulting from that I’ve been involved with Mike Garley at Comixology. I’m going to pen some 10 page strips for his online stuff.
On a more general basis, I work as a commercial artist from Southampton and I sell pop-art inspired canvases at Winchester Market once a month under the banner Neopop.
My first love has always been comics and comic art (Vintage Marvel, Schulz, Herge, Searle, Mad Magazine, Gilbert Shelton, Moore, Miller, Darwyn Cooke, Bruce Timm, Dave Stevens, Bolland, Allred e.t.c.) and my desire to be a comic artist has never dimmed (see 1st panel of The Orb!).
I’m a keen runner, I love clubbing (oldest raver in town now in my mid 40’s!), cat lover, movie obsessive.
Claim to fame: I once voice directed Sylvester Stallone for a game which I scripted. I also got roaringly drunk with Johnny Rotten one afternoon at the Met Bar.

This reminds me of what i do at home when i put words into my pets mouth and turn them into evil geniuses or village idiots. Fantastic words from Gráinne and brilliant art from Brett.
Creator of Apes ‘n’ Capes and contributor to the Dead Roots anthology, Grainne McEntee was born to and raised by a pack of God-fearing wolves in a cavernous hole punched in the side of a Drumlin in Cavan, Ireland. Copious amounts of cheese and crackers spawn her writing. Stinking Bishop is her weapon of choice. And a pen. Pens are good too. She has been thinking about writing for a long time. She finally got round to it.
Creator of Kuzimu, The Vale, Torsobear and other wonderfully wild comics you’ll find under a stone somewhere. A fan of things dark and eldritch. He would be a misanthrope, if he didn’t find so much to laugh at.
Sometimes a joke is just that. But if it’s a joke about dark rituals to open interdimensional gateways into pubs, then it is probably original. Creating complex stories that delve into spheres of philosophy, science and politics are only really memorable if they revolve around strange creatures. It’s true, he says, check out a myth or fable sometime. This self-styled ‘King of the Monsters’ lives in a cosy Aylesbury cave with his sired one and delicious little spawnling.

This is a great comic, i love the view points at the beginning. Love the story!
I was born in 1984 in Sarvar, Hungary. Since I was a child I’ve been interested in the arts, especially the visual arts, graphic expression. I graduated as hungarian literature & drawing teacher in 2008 in Szombathely. In recent years – especially through computer graphics – I worked on applied graphics, but in addition I’m dealing with comic strips and animated films too. The traditional graphic technics – like the hand drawing as a great authentic self-expression form – are important for me. In 2009 I was finalist in the international EuroCartoon competition in Brussels. With my comic-project called “The Six Lives Of Gren” I become an invitation to Poznan to the finals of the Ligatura Pitching competition in 2012. In 2013 I have a publication in the Stripburger magazine’s international comic anthology called “Workburger”.
