Trekker-formatted

A Trio of new Trekker Pages:

Trekker Comic

It felt terrific to have some uninterrupted time to work on this set of Trekker pages. Any artist will tell you that a nice block of time working on one project will get the best results. I’d love to have more of these chunks of time! And since on one is paying me to produce Trekker stories, it’s only direct support from fans of the series that makes those hours of time easier to come by.

There are links just to the right of this week’s page at trekkercomic.com that list various ways you can contribute to Mercy’s cause, whether that’s through Patreon, or by buying the books, or with a direct, one-time donation. If you have the wherewithal, I hope you’ll check them out.  Either way, enjoy this glimpse of an upcoming sequence, and if you haven’t done so yet, I hope you’ll check out Mercy’s continuing stories. I’m still having the time of my life producing them, and the best remains yet to come!

New Sketchbook Makes its Convention Premiere at ECCC 2015!

Excited for NEXT WEEKEND, March 27-29 when ECCC takes over downtown Seattle! I will be there as always. My table will be part of the large Periscope Studio Island of tables, Booth 1214. On hand will be various Trekker goodies, original art, commissions upon request, and also the snazzy new Ron Randall Sketchbook, making its convention premiere!

I hope many of you can make the trip! Other convention appearances later in the year will include the Baltimore Comic-Con and Rose City Comic-Con. More about those and other appearances as the dates get closer.

Meanwhile, here’s the floor map for ECCC, with the vital Periscope Studio location appropriately highlighted:

Trekker #1 Revisited

I just completed a very fun, somewhat challenging commission for a loyal Trekker fan. I was asked to “re-create” the cover of the first issue of Trekker, a work I had originally done for Dark Horse back in 1987. Other than the fan’s request that I include the terrific logo that John Workman came up with to replace the original one, the only changes I made were small ones– though perhaps interesting for those who like to peer closely. Small details in figure construction, a more subtle use of watercolor , simplifying the rendering a bit to more closely match the finish I go for these days– bolder and cleaner than back when I launched the series.

I took several snapshots as I worked through the many steps in the process– pencils, inks, transfers, masks, and the many color steps. Those are all gathered on my Patreon Page. If you are interested in tracing the evolution of the piece, and in giving a little on-going support to Trekker, you can check it all out here. Thanks!

Fall Convention Season

Just finished the terrific Baltimore Comic Con, and looking ahead to RCCC in two short weeks! Here are some of the commissions from Baltimore– a fun collection! Plus, many great conversations with Trekker fans, both old and new. Hope to repeat both the experiences at Rose City. See you there!

Thrilled to have both the Trekker Omnibus and the new TPB “The Train to Avalon Bay” out in print, we forge ahead with the next of Mercy St. Clair’s adventures at trekkercomic.com as Mercy becomes entangled with a desperate plan to get a young woman named Jekka out of the crosshairs of a team of enhanced assassins. Before it’s all over, Mercy and her followers will travel to the stars, and shift the balance of power in the entire System. At the same time, Mercy continues to undergo a personal, inward journey that will lead to equally profound internal changes. Climb aboard for the ride!
