Summer Media Roundup!!!!


FIRST - Ray Sullivan's adaptation of "Good Business", the short of mine that first came out in Heavy Metal Magazine, recently dropped - and it looks amazing! Ray and his team did a beyond-awesome job with it all.

SECOND, I did an interview with the awesome Aaron Williams for his "Comics Manifest" Podcast - which is a podcast i honestly wish had been around when i was getting my start in the comics game. He really pushes for positive and constructive thinking, and does one hell of a good interview!



THIRD: I've been posting a ton of art on Instagram, including some disturbing sexy video-game art, which can all be seen here: https://www.instagram.com/simonamroy/

FOURTH: My last convention of the year (as far as i know now) will be the Magnificent Boise Library Convention, at the end of August - where I'll be with Jess Pollard, Farel Dalrymple, and a ton of other fun folks! Hopefully I'll see you then!

Star Trek Waypoint #5


A couple of pages from a story called “Come Away, Child” I have in this month’s issue of Star Trek: Waypoint - all about two scientists having a classic prime directive dilemma! 
I grew up as a Star Wars fanatic, which for kids is much more immersive and compelling then the awkward forehead-makeup universe of Trek. But once I found myself in adulthood, Star Trek rang much truer then SW’s hollow merchandise-driven adventures. Though Trek has it’s own trashy baggage (and shitty new movies), I find it full of profundity and inspiration.
Getting the chance to dip my own toes into it was an honor, and extremely fun to boot! 
The issue comes out on May 24th - Info here:  http://www.idwpublishing.com/product/star-trek-waypoint-5/

An evil chat with an old friend!

Have a listen - me and my old pal Memo Kosemen, chatting about the modern folk religion of CONSPIRACY THEORIES!

RIP David Gaffney

Earlier in the month, I was saddened to hear of the death of my friend and collaborator David Gaffney. We were plotting a new story for this year, even! 
David was a wonderful, weird, lively writer, father, and stalwart manager in the Ministry of Transportation, and he's left us all far too soon.
 

There's talks to get that short Pilgrim story we did together back out into the world, so stay tuned for some memorial comics plots...

New year, old projects

Homeward Bound from Simon Roy on Vimeo.

The cold weather here in Vancouver has made me a lil nostalgic for my art-school days in Calgary, and reminded me of this animatic i made back in 2011 for school - a non-human cosmonaut’s return to earth. Its a bit rough around the edges, but take a look!
