Okay so things are looking busy — between Orlando losing to LA and Hillary fracturing her elbow, I actually have a lotta stuff going on that I’m actually involved in. Whoodathunkit? So I’m gonna keep this short so I can get back to work and my characteristic self-loathing. But mostly work. Schwing!
Quasi-religious Existentialist project with the ever-dashing William Prince just needs a couple more pages to wrap up my part in the pitch process. Here are some concept sketches from that story.
Steam punk Battle Chasers-esque Zuda proposal with the well-oiled machine Gabe White is about half way done. Shouldn’t be long now. Here’s a peek.
Justin “I know where you live” Jordan is juggling the pitches for OVERTHROW and JENNY STRANGE. All appendages are crossed. Do not activate webcam.
The yet unnamable period piece with lord and master Alexis Nolte went to pitch last week with some friends across the pond. Initial reaction has been positive.
Just getting into the groove of what’s shaping up to be my first solo series after MASK of MANOLO. I’ve somehow attracted the attention of the lovely Rod Hannah, with ties to cerealgeek.com, to illustrate a three-issue mini about wee super-heroine SOVENA RED. Designs have been approved. Scripts have been read. Layouts have been… laid out. More on that as the weeks go by. Here’s a peek though.
On the homefront, the online game Alex “You should really be drawing” Cipriano and I were hired to do is plodding along politely. The worst is probably over, with all the human characters done and approved… now it’s just a buncha cool monsters and we’re home free. After a fashion.
Speaking of monsters, my HORROR CLASSICS are on hold. Personal projects… bah! That werewolf sketch I showed off a month ago is here in Fort Bastard somewhere under a pile of Invincible back issues… I hope.
Just got back home from a… well… a “creative summit” with Jad “Why am I still with you?” Montenegro, at her end of the island chain. HARBINGER WAR is currently in the conceptualization stage, and we’re giggly as fuck about it. A lot. Here’s a sketch from the trip.
There’s that Comic Book Creation Seminar I got invited to speak at, for all the good that’ll do them. HEHAH! That’s set for next month still, but plans are solidifying. Like a flan. But creamier. Maybe I can give out tax advice.
Should look into cloning myself.
More updates as they happen.
