F.A.Q. and Submissions
There's something different about your work, is it CGI?
I assemble drawings, sketches, textures, 3D models, digital painting & photos to create my art. This is a technique known as Kitbashing or Photobashing.
Do you own all of the characters depicted in your art?
Not at all. My art projects actually feature a mix of public domain, creator-owned characters and fan art. Ultimately I hope to use the profits from my work to support worthwhile organizations that improve the world. The real difference is that quality will be emphasized over sales, I don't need to clear a million above the expenses because I'm not greedy. I also won't have to take on ads and risk being pressured by sponsors to change content of my work.
So do you make art or comics or games?
All of the above, and everything in-between. Comics and graphic novels, video games, visual novels, animation, motion comics and a new type of entertainment that combines elements from all of them that I call an ALIVEBook. Of course I create art, stories and games for clients as well.
So, if your self-published print material is print-on-demand, it's not collectible, right?
Wrong. I curate, remove and add print and digital content every one-two weeks. If a print or product has disappeared from the site, it is no longer available and you'll have to find someone who bought one selling online if you want a copy. Some of my books are only available from rare book sellers. Of course you can save some money by grabbing the items you want when you see them in the store now.
So if you support public domain, does that mean that you have to give up rights to your characters and art?
Not at all. ADBP (All Day Breakfast Productions) does not retain rights to any characters and does not own or handle any property beyond it's own logo. I work with characters existing in the Public Domain, as well as my creator-owned properties and fan art and each publication (book/e-book/comic/graphic novel) contains copyright info.
What charities will All Day Breakfast Support?
I have previously supported charities involved with human rights organizations, breakfast programs, artists support groups, animal welfare groups, food banks, anti-censorship organizations and medical research groups. What I will not do is put out a press release every time I donate a cheque. I know that's how other businesses do it, but that's honestly just tacky and I don't want to use a charitable group to promote my creative work. I'm still working out more specifics on this, which will be easier after Not-For-Profit registration is obtained.
Do you ever hire other artists, programmers and models?
On the rare occasion that I do hire someone to assist on a project, here's how to reach me:
1)Artists and programmers are welcome to contact and send a link to their portfolio any time. Contact here.
2) I do occasionally hire art models. Professional and amateur models who are interested may contact me. Please include details of any standard rates and fees that you charge (gig would be completed virtually, I will send a list of 3-5 image requests and you would send them via file sharing) as well as a link to your online portfolio, if you have one. I am not interested in perpetuating the type of sexual harassment culture that is prevalent in other forms of entertainment, so I will never ask to meet in person or ask for something you have stated that you aren't comfortable with. Modeling is open to people of all ages, races, genders, etc. I Always enjoy working with cosplayers too! When art is completed I will also release permission to use the art to promote yourself and you can even sell prints of the resulting artwork. Contact here.
