I'll probably start doing this more regularly, but it occured to me that a quick summation of who I am and what this is all about is probably a good idea.
WHO I AM
My name is Eric Trautmann, and I'm a freelancer writer, editor, and graphic designer. (I'm not the real estate guy from New Jersey, or the doctor in California, and I have to guess that, at this point, both of those guys must hate me.)
Currently, I write comic books (including Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist, Vampirella, and Red Sonja for independent publisher Dynamite Entertainment). I've also written for DC Comics, DC/Vertigo, Prima Games, and Image Comics.
I've written for videogames, dice-and-paper roleplaying games, mainstream publishers like Random House/Del Rey, among other things. I was a columnist for MSN.com's "Parallel Universes" website for the better part of a year.
I'm a graphic designer, and have done everything from print advertising, book design, logo and branding design, to album covers and digital comics lettering.
WHERE I'M AT
I can be found online here, obviously, as well as...
- On Facebook. (Kept up to date, includes several galleries of cover art.)
- On Tumblr. (Mostly a sci-fi/geekstuff image dump)
- On Google+ (I add anyone who "circles" me there, but it's sporadically updated.)
- On About.Me (Online business card)
I'm also on Twitter, but -- unlike the links provided above -- Twitter is where I'm curse-y and sweary and generally a monster. If that's not your cup of tea (and honestly, why would it be?) you're probably better off sticking with Facebook.
I can be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note this is not my primary mail address, and is sort of a gatekeeper/catchall, so responses are not instant.
