Confession

Stumbled on the original thumbnail layout I did for Something Animal. At the time I thought this was the most helpful thing in the world but it took me almost as long to do as painting the finished comic! Lesson learned (I now just paint directly on top of full sized thumbnails). 


Also, it's confession time. I did two drawings for the cover of SA and the one we ended up printing never quite looked right to me. Now I remember why.

Maybe for the Limited Edition hardcover reissue?

Almost there!

I wanted to quickly thank everyone for pledging to this project so far. We're really proud of it and we're almost completely funded (BUT NOT QUITE!) just in time for Halloween, Christmas and all the other pagan rituals.

Brokechella!

I'll be signing at the Fanboy Comics table at Brokechella this Saturday. I'm pretty sure Meg will be there too and Leland might even be in a crate under the table. Sneaky bastard.

The Final Hours: The Receptionist

"Margo can't remember much about how she got her new job or who her new boss is, but she remembers her last day at her old job as if it happened yesterday. She remembers that it was the worst day of her life--a day that stirred the shadows of her darkest memories and led her to the border of the City of Ash."


My illustration for the Beatrice is Dead related flash fiction by S. Zainab Williams.

95%

Beatrice is Dead is almost finished. I'd say 95%. Just final page layouts, a few text edits here and there, and cleaning up a few pieces of the artwork to go.

I got a lot more art done, mostly painted in color, in less than half the time it took me to do Something Animal. Safe to say I've learned a couple of things. Which is good because I've got a feeling the next one's going to be big...

It's likely the next time you see Beatrice is Dead it will be finished so here are some really rough work-in-progress shots from the last few months to keep me from getting uppity:

I heard

Painted a picture of my girlfriend this morning. I heard boyfriends are supposed to do that kind of stuff from time to time.

Acrylic.

Oh, the layout phase.

All scanned in and going through the rough layout. This will be the part were I find out how many redos I need to paint when a) I realize I can't fudge it digitally (who can?) and b) the author vetoes all my more rapey and violent interpretations of her script.

I'm hoping for single digits.

'Ween 'Stumes and Pummy Kins

Me and Meg doing some impromptu, late night modeling for her awesomely, avulsive OpenWoundFX prosthetics and both rounds of our pumpkin carving (and customary incineration).

One more night of Halloween chicanery then back to finishing the painted part of Beatrice is Dead, tarting it up in Photoshop and figuring out the best way of getting it into people's grubby little hands. SOON!

Wasteland Weekend 2012

Had a slightly less-hot blast at this years Wasteland Weekend. Hogged a go kart, ate all the lamb, took some photos and even sold one of my posters to Lord Humungus.

Now back to business.

4 more pages of Beatrice is Dead to ink before I start the painting stage (where at this point I'm certain I'm going to fuck up just a little bit), a new Final Hours installment which I haven't even read yet and probably having to find a job doing storyboards/design/illustration or whatever.

The horror.
