Throwback Thursday: Slice and Dice!

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

It’s been 9 years since this project was shelved, so I’m guessing it’s okay to show by now!

After The Mighty Motor Sapiens wrapped, Mark Wheatley was trying to secure a follow up project to keep the team employed. He secured interest from a Horror website for a daily webcomic and we put together the following pitch.

 

We got a greenlight, but before we could celebrate, in fact the very next day, we got word the guy who greenlit the project was fired and the project was dead!

While I was disappointment I wouldn’t keep working with Mark, MJ, and Jerry, I’ll admit I was a little… unhappy…. with the movies we were planning on parodying. I’m not a fan of slasher flicks and I’m not sure what it would have done to my psyche to have to sit through multiple viewings of movies like Hostel every week!

Still, I miss getting to cartoon in this style.

Covers and More Covers!

Monday, September 25th, 2017

I’m working my way through a back-log of covers.

I’ve had multiple books ready to go but just waiting for a cover.

I have finished the line art for the  final 3 issues of digital Wahoo Morris comics and a collection of some Weird Science-Fantasy short stories for Comixology.

 

Now I need to colour these…. and I still need a cover for a print book collecting my random short stories and a cover to a book collection of pin-ups, art, and sketches.

 

Covers unfortunately are not my favorite task!

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
