05.07.2013 @ 10:06 am - New Scene – News Flash (Part 1 of 2)
Hey, folks! First part of a much longer scene, here. This one took a little longer than expected, mostly due to unplanned illustration work that’s been coming my way. Also, I wanted to make sure I roughed out the entire scene before I went back to do the inks and finishing work. I’m not going to promise that the next update will be quicker in coming, though. There’s another 10 pages to go, yet.
My neck is doing well, at least. Not quite back to drawing full-time, and there are still good days and bad, but all in all it’s healing, even if it’s going slower than I would like. I will say that doing daily yoga stretching and exercise is helping a great deal.
Also, in the spirit of full disclosure, I should mention that in addition to doing illustration work as it comes in, I’m also going to be dividing my time this summer on a side-project with Batman Strikes writer Russell Lissau called STRANGER, that will be appearing in an upcoming issue of Omega Comics Presents. It’s a cute story of a girl who goes to school in space, so think Star Trek meets Miyazaki. It’s my first foray into all-ages comics, and I’m really excited to have a chance to try some new things with it.
Don’t worry, I’ll post some preview stuff here as I can. However, if you don’t hear from me, it’s not because I’m dead. I just don’t like to constantly post to the world that nothing big is happening at the moment (yes, I think that must be in violation of one of the basic rules of the social internet these days, but that’s just how it goes). I will share when there is something worth sharing.
Again, thank you guys so much for your patience!
