Welcome to the official launch of my serialized webcomic, Goatwater! As of today, I've posted the cover and the first page. Goatwater features a melting pot of characters navigating through interconnected stories. The art form of comics offers me a medium in which I can combine two of my greatest loves, painting and literature, while I explore the wilderness of my consciousness. Join me on this journey as I develop Goatwater for print publication – first as separate issues featuring several pages then as a complete graphic novel. My posting schedule for right now will be irregular (a new page approximately 1-2 weeks) until I can work my way toward posting at least one page per week so please bookmark this page and visit regularly. Goatwater is for mature audiences.
Comments and feedback are appreciated. (I will be enabling a Comments feature on this site in the near future, but for now please email any comments or inquiries to bassacards (at) yahoo.com.) Thank you for your support!
These first two pages of Goatwater (cover and page 1) are hand painted with acrylics, gesso and India ink on Indian cotton rag paper (approximately 8” x 12”). This paper is durable, nicely textured and great for painting. While I do some digital touch-ups after scanning the images, I present them in as much of their raw, original state as possible. I may experiment with painting some pages on other surfaces I enjoy working with, such as latex paper, cotton or linen canvas and Bristol Paper.
Goat Water is a stew of goat meat and spices traditional to my Mother’s native island of Antigua as well as other islands in the Caribbean. I can remember attending Antiguan dances and family parties as a child and goat water being served, among many other tasty dishes.
