2011 Challenger: Daniel Govar (saulone)

| October 31, 2011 | 10 Comments

Hrm – let’s see, I guess the best thing to say is that art rules my life. Well, art and my dog – he keeps me in line most of the time. I work on comics I want to work on these days, and do commissions daily. I do book covers and magazine and novel interiors. Over the past 2 years I’ve been doing comic conventions – about 10 or so a year – mostly on the east coast, but I plan to add Emerald City and perhaps one of the other west coast cons to my list this coming year. I created a comic that you can find on Comixology and DC Comics Apps called AZURE and I created a website of Tolkien love called ThereAndBackAgain.net. I post art almost every day – seriously, and have the world’s greatest boxer named Sandor.

If you follow my tweets I may be drinking and I may be drawing – at the same time. 😐 To find out more about me check out my personal site: http://www.danielgovar.com and my DeviantArt page: http://saulone.deviantart.com/

I also designed the look and feel for THIS site and the templates you are hopefully going to be using to post your stuff 🙂 I’m a 2 time challenger and 2 time finisher (ok, that sounded bad…). Check out my past 30 characters love here: http://www.30characters.com/author/dan_govar/

Gents and ladies – start your engines and good luck!

30 Characters Challenger: Daniel Govar (saulone)

I’m that guy your mother warned you about >:)

I write and illustrate the comic Azure now available via Comixology and DC Comics, and maintain a number of art-oriented websites (all linked-up below). I’ve done stuff for the SyFy channel (back when they were Scifi), am part of the Comic Social Club, and do a ton of commissions these days. Like most of you I take on too much and have too little time. Aside from illustration work, Comics, and being a creative director for a media firm outside of Washington, DC, I’ve got an awesome Boxer named Sandor who keeps me humble and somewhat sane. I drink whiskey, wine, and beer (most things so long as they aren’t too froo froo), am a movie-whore, play console games, run with my dog, program websites and applications, <3 my iPad, and would fall on a sword for my closest friends. Oh yeah – I livestream my digital stuff from time to time.

My interests as a creator are all over, spanning just about every genre aside from Manga and Humor. Modern Fantasy, Sci-fi, Steampunk, & Horror are occupying most of my time these days so expect to see a good deal of concept pieces for pitches and some personal odds and ends showing up here. Last year I divided my 30 characters into 10 Pencil pieces, 10 digital pieces, and 10 waterccolour pieces. This year I plan to add Ink to the mix, and promise to give those I can, background bios.

Why this challenge? Last year was a lot of stressful fun. This year I plan to step it up a bit. Be warned. I loved hitting refresh each day (4 or 5 times) and seeing new creations flow into my browser. Last year we had 3o or so, this year I plan to hit refresh about 20 times a day! Can’t wait 🙂
