Journal History

Hi everyone, I am happy to announce that we are FINALLY getting World of Grey out there for you to see.  Until a dedicated website is completed, you can catch all of the heart pounding, suspense, mystery, plot twists and non stop action here on Deviant Art.  Head on over to my World of Grey Folder in my Gallery: brianvander.deviantart.com/gal…

I will continue to post pages so you can read the story!  Feel free to comment, good or bad!  Constructive criticism is important for any creator so fire away.  Or if you really like it and think its the best thing you've ever read, a nice note saying as much is a good thing as well!  Either way,thank you for taking the time to follow my work, but pin ups, commissions and my World of Grey passion project. 

To give you a brief pitch on the World of Grey
Jonathan Grey with Background by BrianVander(Grey)
Jonathan Grey (Grey) - The titular Character in the book.  Grey starts the story of completely unaware of what is going on, so you as a reader can relate with him, you learn together as the story unfolds.  Grey finds that he suited with a High Tech A.I. with untapped potential.  Who this A.I. is, how and why this has happened is unbeknownst to Grey.  The world he wakes up in is far more advanced than the one he remembers.  At one point, Grey finds out that his life has already been lived.....BY SOMEONE ELSE.  The ripple effects of this are THE reason the world is what it is.  Along the way, Grey meets various characters such as Kate Ambers, who has her own motives, as he searches for the truth.

So come along for the ride, share in our story

Take care

Here is it - finally out there for you to see.  Eventually we will have a dedicated website for it, but for those following me on Deviant Art and social media, I wanted to share this with you all.  ALL Comments are appreciated, the GOOD and the BAD.  It's the only way I'll know if I am doing this right, and or how to improve.

An update:

I am going to put a deadline of Friday April 3rd. 
Submit your design to me via:    brianvander11@gmail.com

Here is a quick mock of a title design that I did. 
BUT PLEASE, use it for whatever you'd like.  Alter it, improve it, completely CHANGE it, put your own passion and vision into it!.  I just wanted to simply provide a simplistic vision for reference. 

To recap the contest:
The title is World of Grey.  

Please understand, this is a gentleman's agreement.  I'm not going to get a legal contract and I am not going to cheat anyone out of any design.  I see no value in that as it does nothing for me in the long run to burn bridges.  If someones design is chosen, I'll be more than happy to reward them. 

What I am offering to the design winner is
their name in the book credits. 
A $25 payment and
an original 11x17 One character copic color commission of their choice.

Thanks Brian.  

"Starburn" should be coming out in DIAMOND/PREVIEWS catalogue for Nov/Dec orders from EMERALD STAR COMICS. 

"Sadistic" is supposed to be coming out in late Summer 2014 from EVIL MOOSE COMICS.

There are a bunch that I am working on to get ready for pitches to publishers: TRIBAL LINES, YAKUZA - 893 and BLOOD IN. BLOOD OUT. 

Hoping to get noticed pretty soon. 

All the best with your art I know you will be drawing professionally soon enough.
