Working on a thing…

Working on a thing…

So happy to announce the book I’ve been working on for the past six months. Pigs Might Fly. An all ages steam punk (diesel punk?) graphic novel to be published by First Second. I’ve been working on this book with Nick Abadzis, of Laika fame. Nick wrote it, I am illustrating it, and Laurel Lynn Leake is doing the color. It’s been officially announced today and I’m so very very very excited to share. There is an article up on Comics Alliance that says it all a lot better than I can. And with oodles of concept art.

I am the most excited for this.

Preview for the last issue is up riiiiiiight… NOW :0

Haha, you should read this preview because it ends on a cliffhanger that BASICALLY means you have to buy the book next week to find out what happens!  So, do that!

We were so glad to see that the resolution of that scene wouldn’t be in the preview. I don’t know why more writers don’t play toward the 5-page web preview!

Two years ago I married this fine fellow Braden Lamb! As with most creative couples we took our invitations VERY SERIOUSLY.   

Future Finn as he appears in issue 25, and an earlier sketch of same.

Emerald City Comic Con 2014 was so great! Met some awesome people, like Katcakes (seen above with an astounded Shelli) who came in costume as Queen Bubblegum (battle mode) from issue 8 of the Adventure Time Comic!

Also, here’s a few commissions I did over the weekend. (Apologies for color and skewing weirdness due to close-quarters photography.) I may do more like these in the future - taking my time on just a handful of drawings per day. More satisfying for me, and also hopefully for you folks who get them.

Next stop, MeCAF: May 18 in Portland, ME.

Happy 20th, Hellboy!
A lot on my plate right now getting a comic out the door and preparing for Emerald City Comic Con, but I’ve got time to do a sketch paying tribute to Mike Mignola’s Paranormal Investigator.
