the Process on WebComicGeek

What, me?After having been nominated for Webcomic of the Year by WebComicGeek, the site is now doing reviews of all nominees. First up is the Process! Vileboy has some amazing things to say and I have only recently been able to stop blushing! It truly is a great testament to my readers and to this project to be the subject of such insightful writing. And I quote:

Joe Infurnari’s The Process made the shortlist as a result of the gorgeous artwork and the brilliant concept.

Infurnari’s artwork is truly spectacular, he not only conjures up a weird fantasy world but also visualises the creative process at work.

This comic truly is a masterpiece of layout design. Each page is a work of art and some pages take on the complexity of a modernist mandala. Sprays of colour and complex interweaving of images that I have only ever seen successfully realised in Blade of the Immortal, until now. While Hiroaki uses his technique for the occasional center piece, Infurnari treats us to visual spectaculars far more regularly.

If that wasn’t good enough Infurnari, gives a glimpse into his creative process with detailed comments and rough sketches. It is great to see the artistic process at work and dissected so thoughtfully and reflectively.

If you consider yourself a fan of comics then The Process is a title that demands your attention with a visual insistence and a degree of intellectual playfulness rare in the form.

Is he good or what!? Thanks, Vileboy! I hope to see you next year…


the Process Nominated for Webcomic of the Year!

Those fine folks over at Webcomicgeek, have nominated the Process for the Geekie award for best webcomic of 2007! It is an incredible honor to be included alongside such esteemed comics as The Perry Bible Fellowship. I am practically beside myself over it! It's so nice to have this project validated in this way. Let's face it, I'm toiling away here trying to purge my soul of this leviathan of a story with only the occasional comment, donation or T-shirt sale as my reward. It certainly is a labor powered solely by love, obsession and dedication. Any recognition by you, the reader, or a nomination such as this makes it that much better. So thank you, Webcomicgeek, and thanks to all of my faithful readers. Oh, and I can't forget the Academy…and God…and Mom…and Dad…and ah, you're all the best.
