Help the Omaha Slam Poetry Team

The 2014 Omaha Slam Poetry Team needs help getting to the National Poetry Slam in Oakland, California in August. Donations go towards covering registration fees, travel and accommodations for 5 team members and 1 coach for a week long competition. As of July 21st they have 8 days left on their Crowdtilt campaign and any bit helps. You can donate here.

As a whole, our work gives voice to the underrepresented and fosters community and connections among people from all walks of life. We are telling our stories, one poem at a time, and would like the opportunity to keep doing so on the Pacific Coast! 

I’m very thankful to have a community of artists like these in my city. This is a very special group of people — if they haven’t helped local schools with LTAB programs (Louder Than a Bomb - youth poetry festival) then they’re students who have come up through that program themselves. If you’ve ever been witness to the power of slam poetry and the amazing things it can do for a community then you can understand why these people and their works are important. Please consider giving or spreading the word. 

Thank You!

Our ultimate goal is to provide a support system enabling and encouraging girls to design their own futures and to realize those designs.

I had the immense pleasure of attending the sold out Omaha Girls Rock show and it was the best thing I’ve done all summer. 
If you’re ever in a position to go to a show put on by girls in a Girls Rock Camp Alliance program, drop what you’re doing. Get a ticket. Scream your heart out as girls perform songs they wrote together in the spirit of sisterhood, diversity, partying, and rock n’ roll.

Hi! I'm really sorry to bug you with the question if you've had it before: How do you draw a face and make it look the same? Like in a comic book or storyboard or something? Do you have a process or any tips? Thanks so much and love your art!!!

I’ve had a question about diversity of faces which you can find here and while it’ll relate, this this is a pretty different question overall. What I like to do here is character design/redesign and fashion illustration so my focus isn’t really on art you’d find in a comic book but I’m happy to share my observations :) 

So the challenge we’re facing here with comic art is there are time constraints, space constraints but you also have to have your characters be easily visually identifiable. Now one could go the Peanuts route and have pretty much one style of face and let things like clothing, hair, etc. be your difference markers. In college I gave a series of personal essays a graphic novel treatment and that was the way I went. Character faces had this kind of eye, this kind of head shape, etc. and it’s all kept very simple. I snagged some shots of my character throughout the book.

Setting a simple design makes it easy to keep someone looking the same throughout. I mean, you’re gonna draw them again and again and again and again so you’ll settle into a pretty consistent way of rendering them. There are a lot of works utilizing this kind of simplicity so, hey, it’s an option. But! You asked about faces so you’re likely interested in working on something where all the faces are pretty different.

My suggestion is to make decisions about key parts of the face. That probably doesn’t make sense so let me talk at you some more. The list of facial features I have in my head are eyebrows, eye shape (specifically the bottom lid) bridge of the nose, tip of the nose,the shape of the line between the lips, and jawline. That’s what I look at to make sure I get likenesses. I recently finished up this commission where she wanted a more stylized illustrative piece so I had to put a person’s face in a more simplified style.

image

I noted how the bridge of her nose was very straight, the tip pointed out, her lip line came to a sharper downward point and she had more of a square jawline. If I were to take this and make a comic about her, I would always make sure I hit that check list in any expression she’s making to give an audience visual cues that this is the same character. Having a list to go back to helps with consistency, or at least appearing consistent. Something you might want to look at are Daria character designs. The style is very simple and allows for the consistency a tv show demands, but characters have their own thing going on in those different parts of the face

the was maybe a lot longer and less helpful than you’d hoped for but I gave it my best shot. Happy drawing!
