Work in Progress on the Exile

A part of the porntastic comics page I’m drawing right now. Work in progress (unerased pencils and all). Mostly posted to assure my collaborator, Katie Zall, that I am indeed back at it and that she hasn’t written me anything I can’t really draw. I'm hoping to push through and finish The Exile by the end of next week. We'll see if I keep to that.

Tally ho.

Voices Against Bullying, Page 3

Here's the third page from my story for this anthology. I wasn't going to show any more of this just yet, but this page is so much better than the previous two that I couldn't hold off. There's a weird kind of alchemy at work when you draw comics on a regular basis. Something eventually clicks and your pages get dramatically better. I wish I could bottle it. I think in this case there are three things at work: First, I'm mostly over a case of bursitis that has been plaguing the elbow of my drawing arm. Second, I've regained enough freedom of movement to go back to drawing with a brush. Third, I think I hit the critical mass point where improvement comes in bunches. I remember the last time that happened to me. The results were dramatic. Anyway, enjoy.

Voices Against Bullying

I'm contributing to an anthology about bullying this month. These are the first two pages of my story. Pitt pens on Bristol board with digital lettering. The title font is Benguat Frisky. Everything else comes from Blambot. This will run five pages. I probably won't post much more than this, since this is going to be published. Should be out sometime in June. I'm still working on The Exile, btw, but I've had a couple of setbacks with that story. I hope to have it finished by the end of May.
