Applause!! Clap clap clap 😀
I’m very much looking forward to Act II!!!
Why thank you!!!!! More to come!
Could you please let us know when this is supposed to start up again? 😀
Great art and interesting world. And it looks like I found a link to this comic just in time to read the first issue for free?
Thanks so much. There’s more to come! Please stay tuned!
Just awesome. Your style and story line falls right in with the masters. I can’t wait for the next installments.
Toast high Hal
Thank you for the kind words. That was pretty fun to paint. The next installment will be a very big surprise! Thanks for being a fan and following along for the ride!
I love the landscape. It is so beautifully done.
Thanks so much. I actually love to paint skies and mountains. The funny thing is that these things are just blobs of paint, blurred and layered and eventually it turns out to fool everyone into looking like a landscape. It’s a lot of fun and sometimes a lot of luck.
hi yes it’s a great story i found a few pages that i didn’t see the first time around. i can’t wait for act 2.
whats up with act II … its been months. This story is epic, so relative to the society we live in and how reality lies with nature. Hats off really…… down with wilson, save gamehendge
Act 2 is written and ready to go…but since this is a transmedia property, the next piece is going to be a very cool, transmedia ebook, filled with illustrations, video and all sorts of cool stuff that begin the saga of Gates in the year 1987. The intent is to then compile a trilogy of stories that will lead right up to the Gates comic, which will be reborn in a new format–and continued in a new format–that will transcend comics. Please keep checking in to find updates about what’s happening. If you read the journal entries located below…you’ll see what I mean. Thanks for the compliments and I appreciate that you feel that way about the relevance to what’s happening in our world today, That is the EXACT message I was going for. CHEERS!
good job transcending that vision. I grew up in Mohawk also, and always have and still do feel my native ancestors presence eminating from the lands here. I feel most connected to this heritage and consider it my true ancestry. We the people of the valley of the crystals. I should send you a “herkimer diamond” our mohawk tribes gift to the world, from our sacred valley of the crystals. Keep up the good art, the world needs it . 🙂
NICE! thx dude!
Just read pages 1-68 for the last hour and a half instead of eating. Awesome art. Gates really needs the girl by his side at all times. You never know when you need a floatation device while exploring.
A couple of months away and more pages released, to the extent of the I act. I feel very afortunate for having found Gates. Still keep saying, the more freedom you give your masterpiece, the farther it reaches. Your drawing and colouring style is very interesting, most of the times it looks you just took pictures of the scenes and added some colouring effect, such is the realism in the drawings. I will share this with all my friends, hope it remains open for as much as possible. Once again, I believe the further you go, the readier you have the very movie’ storyboard in hand for any big company to buy. Cheers from Brazil.
cant wait for act 2…..can you include some “naturals” . you know , people who never heard of the colony. that could add a kind of discovery qoutiant .
Hef — what media do you use in your artwork. It reminds me very much of airbrush art.
It’s Photoshop here. I use all sorts of stuff though artistically form real paint and ink to digital.
When are we getting the next act??
Also I have to admit. I saw something in your episodes when the little gates was trying to climb over a rock wall. that very picture I had it in my dream and I felt like it was a deejay boo ” I think that how it is spee” english is my second language. I am from Peru the jungle area
Great artwork, but the story so far is “Logan’s Run” (1976). It was a pretty good movie, though. TV series was lame.
Awesome, now they are outside with cooling flying critters… and stuff. 😀 I’m looking forward to Act II!! Tentacles await…
In many ways this story seems to mirror what is happening the world today. We have all sorts of screens that run messages telling us how to live our lives. We go out and buy them. 😀 We are told that if we follow all the rules and become “productive” cubicle drones we will be happy, just as the citizens in this comic labor in hopes of eventually “ascending”. Many people live their lives out in a world of asphalt and concrete, air conditioned interiors and scrubbed floors without ever getting out into a truly wild, natural spot. Heck, we are even discouraged from taking the initiative to defend ourselves from violence. The message I get from this comic is simple- don’t allow yourself to become just another cog in the machine. 🙂
