CUTTINGS proof

We got a plotter proof for CUTTINGS from the printer. It took a few days to get our notes together, but everything’s looking good. 

For this book in particular, we’re using (on various editions) spot gloss, foil stamping, pantone endsheets and a dust jacket with foil stamping + die-cut. This is probably the most complicated cover I’ve put together, although the Exquisite Beast LTD comes close. I came up with a trick for the binding of the CUTTINGS LTD that I’m proud of, but the best way to explain will be to show. Happy to say I get better and learn something new every time.

More news via Kickstarter when I have it (you’ll have to log in). Thanks everyone who backed the book, we’re workin’ hard for you.

This book is going to look really handsome, guys!  Ananth really killed it with the layouts, he put in a lot of overtime to get it just right.

We’re at SPX 2014! (i drew this with my left hand)
Hey guys!  Ananth and I are going to be at SPX in Bethesda MD this upcoming weekend!  We’re going to be at table #W-89 at the front far left and sharing a table with Magnolia (Monster Pulse) and Tom (Gunnerkrigg Court)!!
Sorry in advance: I will NOT be doing sketches or signing of any kind this year, as both of my hands are injured. Ananth has volunteered to sign everything twice!  If, uh, you want that.
See you there!

Brand new art for the title page of CUTTINGS, the newest Johnny Wander collection. The Kickstarter ends in 17 hours! Thank you so much for your support! You’ve crossed so many of the goals— this book is going to be everything we wanted and we have you to thank for that.
CUTTINGS on Kickstarterjohnnywander.com

This and the cover images were the two new big pieces of art that I did just for the CUTTINGS book.  I’ve been really excited to share this one!  (For those intererested, there is going to be a LOT of art of Kaia and Dhio and North in the book - including a bunch that’s never been shared anywhere.)

Aaa oh gosh there is less than a day left in the Kickstarter!!  Thank you so much again to everyone who’s contributed, reblogged, or promoted this project.  It’s gonna be so cool when it’s finished, just you wait!

2013 Japan Travelogue comics (pages 7&8)

Whenever I go to Japan I try to make some sort of travelogue of my trip.  I never shared my comics from 2013 anywhere, but they’ll be included (along with the 2012 comics) in the CUTTINGS collection, so this’ll be the only way to read all of ‘em!

The CUTTINGS kickstarter is still runnning for 3 more days! Thank you again to everyone who’s contributed, I’m so excited over how the book has been turning out!!

Walking Gods cast (or at least some of ‘em).  photoshop.
Whoops, this slowly appeared over the course of the past week.  A lot of these guys I haven’t drawn in literally years.  For those curious, Noalle is a sibyl and Kaia’s friend.  Haldae is a scary dragon.  Círran is a flower farmer.  Oria is the god of the harvest. (more information about this story here)
If the CUTTINGS kickstarter hits its next goal (adding SIXTEEN pages of content), there’s a really good chance this’ll be included in the book!  It only has 8 days to go, aaa!  Thank you so much again to everyone who’s supported the project!!

Girl with the Skeleton Hand 2

One of several comics collected in CUTTINGS, the upcoming Johnny Wander book! It’s up for preorder on Kickstarter right now!

Fact: Cecilia has a secret fondness for elephants. There are small figurines scattered around her apartment!

I remember very vividly watching videos of grackles for this story, to find out what kinds of noises they make.

Thank you guys again so much for supporting this book!  It’s looking really really lovely so far, I think you’ll like it!

Girl with the Skeleton Hand 1

One of several comics collected in CUTTINGS, the upcoming Johnny Wander book! It’s up for preorder on Kickstarter right now!

The concept for Cecilia came almost fully formed out of a sketch in Yuko’s notebook! She was looking at her hands and thinking to herself “my right hand looks much more skeletal than my left… I wonder if it’ll turn into bones when I’m older”. When I saw the sketch later it was like a lightning bolt— Yuko has a way of drawing faces flush with personality, and sometimes a whole story spins right out of it. 

Oh gosh this comic is five years old now!  I’ve learned so so much since doing the first Cecilia short.  I’d really like to continue these guys’ adventures, maybe we will in the NEAR FUTURE??

2013 Yearly Art Meme. (2012 • 2011 • 2010)
Whew, nearly forgot to to this one!  2013 was a year for property work; I did a bunch of freelance gigs for Valve, Homestuck, Namco-Bandai, and Adventure Time.  Looking at all this lined up, you can see this gradual shift over the middle of the year from muted tones with primary colors to neon and secondary colors.  Ha ha ha oops.
I’ve been kind of quiet this month, sorry!  I’ve been doing some cool design work that I’ll hopefully be able to show off soon!

Penny you had one job: Lucky Penny pseudo-valentines

I came across an amazing post on the Lucky Penny tag and have been excitedly waiting for today’s page to post this unfortunate aftermath to these guys’ romantic shenanigans.  Penny, Walter, you guys are babies.

Sorry everyone, for the super un-sexy comic.

Lucky Penny, pgs. 27, 64, 73.

Making up romance novel titles was one of the highlights of writing Penny! Lucky Penny is currently being serialized over at Johnny Wander. Start at the beginning!

This is my and Ananth’s very serious graphic novel.
