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!!

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??

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.

Adventure Time: Candy Capers 5 cover (rejected).  Brush and ink, photohop.
Candy Capers #5 comes out today!  Tessa Stone did the second half of the issue and let-me-tell-you, both she and Ian knocked it out of the park.  Ananth and I have been pleased as punch with how this series has been shaping up.  Infinite thanks to our letterer Hannah, colorist Maarta, and our awesome editor Shannon.
I’m bummed this cover was rejected, but hopefully it will be included in the collected trade paperback!

Candy Capers Issue 3 Cover: Variant A.  brush and ink, photoshop.
Oh dang, Adventure Time: Candy Capers is out TODAY!  Let-me-tell-you, I went through like 4 or 5 different thumbnails to make Lemongrab as un-terrifying as possible.
The first half of the issue was drawn by Evan!  He did an incredible job, especially considering the number of butts we forced him to draw.  The second half returns to Ian McGinty who, as always, is perfect in every way and a pleasure to work with.  Lettering by Hannah Nance Partlow and colors by Maarta Laiho, both of whom are the irreplaceable glue that keeps this book together.  And love to our editor Shannon forever.

Lucky Penny Pg. 34 colored.  brush and ink, photoshop.
Apparently today is National Lucky Penny day?  OH HEY THAT IS THE NAME OF THE BOOK I AM WORKING ON!  Sometimes I think about how nice it would be if this book was printed in full color.  Maybe it will become very popular and warrant a full-color job a la Scott Pilgrim and someone else will color the whole thing for me.
Oh and hey!  Benign Kingdom has kickstarter going if you would like to preorder my and Evan’s collection of The Exquisite Beast!  I promise the book will look super sharp.
