Storyboards: Portal from Facebook


Quick post about the other part of my bizzzz. Sometimes I freelance as a concept artist. In the past I’ve helped with campaigns for Android, Red Bull, Yeti, Dropbox and Google. The most recent product that I helped with was… wait for it… facebook portal! To be honest I’m not one hundred percent sure where these images ended up being used (I worked on this project over a year ago), but if you check out the portal site you’ll see certain moments reflected, so I’m sure my work had some small part to do with it 😜. Anyway, as much as I love writing and drawing comics, I am also thrilled anytime I get to work as part of a creative team, this time with the amazing folks at Instrument. Good work y’all!

UPDATE: That's a wrap on the first installment, be it chapter 1, episode 1, or the first issue of a new mini-comic, we'll see! 


Maybe this was just a fun exercise, or maybe it's the start of a new, occasionally updated story. It's a bit personal, and at some future point I'll explain it, but it feels nice to work on something very simple (ink to page, no pencils), outside of my major graphic novel project and similarly occasional diary-comics.  

Speaking of those, I've been posting a few new ones on my instagram (@breenabardcomics) and am trying to keep working that muscle at least once in a while. I'll put them up here too when I get some extra time!


I. Have. BIG. NEWS.

Earlier this year I entered a contest. Was it a pie eating contest? No. A dress-your-cat-like-Madonna contest? No (but if something like that exists, sign me up.) A contest where you come up with names for fake contests?? NO!

It was the "Get Published by Graphix" contest, as in Graphix, the graphic novel and comics arm of Scholastic! Up to five winners would be selected, and those winners would be offered publishing contracts for their submission. With a hope and a prayer, I submitted Trespassers, my middle grade graphic novel about unlikely friends solving a lake house mystery. I won't say I forgot that I entered, but I WAS surprised to get an email a few months later saying that... I won! So, without dragging it out any longer, Trespassers will be published by Scholastic/Graphix/ in Spring of 2020!

Somebody pinch me. 

You can get the full scoop here!



Happy Valentines Day to all you sweet hearts wrapped up inside bodies, but especially to my sweetheart, Zech. And come on, is this not a more accurate celebrity doppleganger? (I know it is, because when I showed it to Harvey he said, "Daddy!")



This is the abridged conversation... missing are the bits about Enya, which was his second guess. I'm starting to think I could do an entire spin-off comic about the awkward conversations I have at the dentist office. Although I'm really glad I went against my original podcast choice, which would have required me explaining to him the Babysitters Club CLUB.
