Drawing Infographics

I recently created an infographic for work. It was an interesting experiment: how to cram a ton of information into a [relatively] small amount of space, while still making it aesthetically pleasing, and readable.

Plus, it was a chance to draw in a simple, two color style.


Oh, The Beating Drum!

It’s been a while since I posted anything here. Here’s an excerpt from Oh, The Beating Drum! number 8. This one features lizardmen, funny hats, rain, houses on stilts, people complaining about things, anachronisms, and a reference to a classics professor I had in 1993. As always, the entirety can be read in the magazine of swords and sorcery Worlds Without Master.

Oh, The Beating Drum!

Every once in a long while comes a comic so profound, it changes all the rules.

This is probably that comic. Though, as the author, I might not be an objective opinion on this matter. Actually, this is the first page of that comic. There are two pages in total. You should probably subscribe to the magazine to see the other page. And the fourteen other pages I’ve made for this series, so far.

Oh, The Beating Drum!

As always, Oh, The Beating Drum! is financed in part by Worlds Without Master, a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and readers like you.

Once again, ladies and gentlemen, Oh, The Beating Drum! Or, at least the first page of it.

As always, you can read the entire thing by subscribing to Epidiah Ravachol’s magazine of sword & sorcery Worlds Without Master.

Mindful Filter Comic

I recently made a comic for work. We’re doing this new social media experiment called Mindful Filter; to explain it to people, I drew it out in four-color splendor.

I also created a simpler, black and white version too, using the same sketches (though not the same inks).
