Hello all! Time for an update!
Christian Sager and I decided to start posting regular updates leading into the completion of our graphic novel, THE CABINET. That and it’s about time I did a new blog post.
After being derailed a little due to my wife and I’s medical woes, we are making headway! Our (AMAZING) Kickstrter backers received a PDF copy of the first chapter right before we headed out to Heroes last month. Response has been good, as far as I know anyway.
I’m moving onto chapter 3 now and feeling pretty good so far. We still have a lot to go, but now we are moving at a steady pace. I’m working on the book daily, from the time I get up in the morning until I go to bed in the morning.
We’re starting to get into the arctic portion of the story as well, I’m pretty excited about that! With each of these updates I’ll also be sharing new art. So, here is a page…
You might notice the washes are blue and the gutters white. While we used some blue in the kickstarter preview, we have since changed our use of it. We are using the blue washes and white gutters to signify flashbacks now and red washes, black gutters for present day. Seems to be working out so far.
Christian is heading out to SDCC so he didn’t really have time to add anything this time around. Maybe you’ll bump into him there and he’ll tell you all about the inner workings and what not!
I’ll be doing another update on THE CABINET soon! You can also follow my FACEBOOK PAGE, I post a lot of work in progress from pages while I’m working.
In other news…
Chip Reece and I have been somewhat floored by the response to the METAPHASE preview .
There is now a Spanish translation available and a Portuguese one in the works. Turns out the book has gained a lot of fans in Brazil. Chip and I recently did an interview with a Brazilian site as well… CHECK IT OUT.
I’ll also be contributing to the Seven Stones comic anthology which is about to start it’s Kickstarter in the coming month. I’ll bother you more about that soon.
I also want to say a huge congrats to THE GUNS OF SHADOW VALLEY guys on the crazy successful kickstarter they just wrapped up. You are all better for it because that bok is going to be awesome.
Lastly, in my ever continuing quest to afford to eat and stuff, I direct your attention once again to my Etsy shop. I’ve added new prints and have been updating with new random original art. All at pretty low prices. Like, say this Hellboy drawing that’s up on there right now..
Or the recently added Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles print (only available for a short time.) Everything comes with a free sketch too!
Okay, enough of that stuff. See you guys next time!
