And that’s a wrap!

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

On Tuesday I put the finished bits of ‘ink’ on the final interior page of Wahoo Morris.

 

I’m not popping the champagne quite yet.

 

I still have 3 covers to do for the Comixology releases and I have to copy edit the whole book and put together a print ready file for Book 2. That’s a lot of work. And I have to somehow find the time for it in between storyboard assignments.

 

But… for the first time  in 17 years I find myself without an in progress comic project to pick away at between assignments. And I’m finding that less of a relief than I thought.

 

This might be a good time for editors to hit me up for work. :)

Eulogy for the Lemon Drop Kid

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

The word came yesterday that The Damon Runyon Graphic Library project is dead. An agreement couldn’t be made with the new person in charge at the rights holder.

 

It’s heartbreaking burying a project. I think this would have been a beautiful book and I was very proud of this story. Sure, I can show the art, but that’s only half the story without the words.

 

Sigh…..

 

Anyway, here is all 33 pages of the black & white linework

 

Stay Tuned……

Loose Ends

Monday, April 17th, 2017

I’ve been slowly picking away at the loose ends of Wahoo Morris Book 2 during my brief moments of downtime the last few weeks.

As of today I’ve got 5 pages left to ink and a few odds and ends of lettering to finish off.

The end is near!

A New Project

Monday, September 12th, 2016

I’m starting a new comic project for the first time in 5 years. I’ve got a script, a publisher waiting, and 24 pages of “paper” ruled and waiting.

A blank sheet of paper is both exhilarating and terrifying at the same time.
