220 - the continuation of stuff

Just a quick update. For those wanting to really follow what I'm up to on a more steady basis the best places are Twitter and Instagram: is where all my art post go now a days
and is where that art goes as well as my musings and crazy podcastingness

G.E.E.K. has not only wrapped and been printed but Matt Cohen is now shipping so i hope to be able to show you guys my copy very soon. Super excited to hold a book that I colored half of in my grubby little mitts.

I took some time off from all things at the end of G.E.E.K. which also coincided with me working through all the craziness of finishing off my divorce and selling my house. Much stress. Lead to much video gaming and not a lot of art.

As I started to get back into things I was lucky enough to have my name brought up in conversation to a fledgling game company and got interviewed to work on their project with them. The meeting went well and I've been working on sketches and card ideas for the Pass-A-Fist game for the past little bit and will be working on that for the foreseeable future. The plan is for the game to be ready to go to print and live on Kickstarter as of early 2016 so I've got a lot of art to work on. In the mean time you can right now go download FOR FREE a beta version of the game at

Along with that I'm still working through Christopher Hart's Figure It Out which makes for great daily warm up as I'm doing cards for the game. People are going to love the game, it's a fucking blast to play.

Other than that I'm trying to get ahead on everything so I can participate in Mr Jake Parker's fantastic annual event known as Inktober. Didn't quite finish it last year but I got close, planning on doing all 31 this year and I've got a fun theme and a database of reference ready to go so we'll see how I do.

Here's a bunch of what I've been working on:

219 - stuff

Decisions were made and things have happened. After thinking about not continuing with the Next Element podcast I had the honor of podcasting with Matt Burden from FPW and my favorite movie podcast Matinee Idles. Next Element is sticking around and it will happen when Colin and I feel like doing an episode.

My part of GEEK is done. The entire book is now done and on it's way to the printer. Soon to be a finally published comic!

I'm back to drawing, podcasting, and writing for Gonna Geek.

So go check out the stuff:

I'm now the co-host on All Things Good and Nerdy

I'm the host of a new POI Network podcast called CMYKTV podcast about all them fantastic comic book related TV shows.

And I'm back to doing Bachman's Best over at Gonna Geek.

And all the drawing stuff is showing up on my Twitter @anthonybachman and my Instagram @bachmananthony

218 - decisions

Decisions, decisions. Things are still hectic, as the quiet around here can attest to. What writing I am doing I am putting up over at where I can happily say that Bachman's Best is continuing with gusto. I have also taken over the 3rd chair over at All Things Good and Nerdy so that means I currently LIVE every Sunday talking about geeky stuff, and everything else. The problem being that keeping up with those 2 things while doing colors on GEEK 5 days a week has really put a damper on trying to get new episodes of The Next Element Podcast out. And now I'm thinking about the Next Element maybe taking a hiatus at least until Colin finishes school and has more time for it or until I'm done with GEEK and can dedicate more of my time to it. Hmmmm...wonder if anyone will read this.

217 - way into the new year

Knock knock. Knock knock....


Is there anyone there?...

There in fact is. I am actually still here. Mainly just coloring. My writing on has taken a hit and been really inconsistent, not as inconsistently as I've been posting here but not good. I've really only been taking time to hit up social media on my Facebook and Twitter during the bathroom breaks that I'm not reading comics. Also the podcast has been on a sort of hiatus as Colin has gone back to school and is now going through the fun of moving into a new house.

Now, the good news. As of this posting I'm 6 pages from the halfway point on GEEK, just need to keep going, that's all there is to it. Things are gearing up for LCTC 2014 also known as the Lexington Comic and Toy Convention where I will be making my first appearance as an exhibitor! My table, hotel, and plane tickets are all taken care of, I have 100 prints of my Adventure Time print on the way to me in the mail right now. It looks like all things are coming up Milhouse so I'll just keep my fingers crossed that things keep going the way that they are going.

216 - 3 page preview of G.E.E.K. or Where I've been spending my nights...

Want to get a good look at what I've been up? Why you never see me at the bar-b-ques? Why I'm just never in the club anymore? Where I've been spending my evenings...

Well click this lovely link and you find a 3 page preview of G.E.E.K.!

Oh, and Marvel announced they are bringing back a new X-Factor series written by Peter David and The New Warriors are coming back! So today is an epic day.

That is all. :-)

215 - a shocking quickie!

Just a quick update. Roughly 98% of the time I'm not at work or sleeping I am coloring GEEK. It's not coming along as fast as I would like, but it is coming along. Still hoping to see more of a speed increase as I keep going but the important thing is I ain't stopping. Pages done and plenty more to do.

I did want to share with you guys that I added to my original comic page collection. Powers Vol 2 Issue #13 Page #20 is now mine! I love it!

And below that is a small sneak peek at one of the GEEK panels I have colored. You guys will love it when you find out why this guy looks so shocked in this image. It's great stuff.

Okay, back to coloring I go.

214 - My walls got all kinds of original!

The postman brought a package to my work on Friday afternoon. I now have 3 pages of original New Warriors comic book art with pencils by Mark Bagley and inks by Larry Mahlsedt. I will add these to my Comic Art Fans gallery soon.

I own Mark Bagley New Warriors pages. I AM SO HAPPY.

A huge thanks to Spencer Beck at The Artist's Choice for great service.
