2011 Challenger: Tyler James

| October 19, 2011 | 3 Comments

Hey everyone.  My name is Tyler James, and I’m the originator of this whole crazy endeavor.  What started as a fun little project to get me out of a creative rut in 2009 has turned into an annual event that many, many people look forward to each year.  So here we go!  #30Characters 2011, I’m ready for you!

Me hanging out at the ComixTribe booth at New York Comic Con last weekend.

A bit more about me, I am a serious/ educational game designer by day, and a comic writer/artist and publisher by night.  (And early morning.  And weekends.)  I’m currently working on the all-ages swords and sorcery fantasy webcomic TEARS of the DRAGON, a story I’m writing with gorgeous art from Koko Amboro and Miguel Marques.  I’m also developing two super hero projects:  a superteen action comedy EPIC with Matt Zolman, and a superhero murder mystery THE RED TEN with Cesar Feliciano.  Fun facts…most of the main characters in THE RED TEN were developed during last year’s 30 Characters Challenge, and several EPIC characters were created during the 2009 Challenge.

I’m also the publisher of ComixTribe.com, a site with the mission statement of “Creators helping creators make better comics.”  If you’re a writer or artist, I hope you’ll check out ComixTribe, as I think we have a ton to offer you over there.

While I’ve completed the past two Challenges successfully, I have a feeling this year’s will be the most challenging yet.  Still, I have a few series that I’m interested in developing characters for, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what inspiration November brings.

Can’t wait!
