Sorry about the massive wait since my last post but I’ve been mega busy with work, family and comics.
Some great news since the last time in the trio of writing/lettering/drawing.
First thing is first, the comic Sadistic I am lettering issue #1 is out NOW!!!
You can buy both the hard copy and digital copy at Insane Comics Store HERE!
Issue #2 is well underway so go read #1 while you wait 🙂
Now that I have got that pimping out the way let me speak about writing. So ‘The Odd Lot’ that I am doing with Pete is now going to be straight to release as a trade paperback, through discussions with Pete and the way the flow of the story was going, we just deemed it a better idea to release as a 72 page trade instead and we are aiming for it to be ready end of next year.
‘And They Come’ I have been having major issues with, and I have decided to go with another artists, it’s a shame as I loved the way it initially looked but I am also just as excited to see what a new artists will do with the characters.
Anthology news! I am writing two stories for different anthologies and actually finished the first draft of one of the scripts. One of the books is based around wrestling and that is the script which I finished the first draft of. The second book is volume two of ‘Silver City’ and I am looking forward to having a story in it with one of the group members Dylan on art. Both books are for release next year around the same time.
When it comes to lettering I have been a busy boy with great projects, of course I already mentioned Sadistic above but I am also lettering another book from Insane called ‘Wicker’, this is to be released in December I believe.
With the same awesome writer from ‘Wicker’ Lou Frontier I have another project called ‘I am Ragnarök’ with some amazing art from Jordan Kroeger. The story has interest from several publishers and we are going to be announcing the company we are going with soon.
I have a few more lettering things on the go but they will get posts of their own soon as some are going quite slowly at the moment or I am waiting on scripts etc.
On top of ALL THIS, I have even dusted off the old pencils and pad again…
Now I am no I am not good but I must admit I really enjoyed not having my head in a computer screen, it was very therapeutic and I can see me drawing more to unwind.
Now i understand my stuff looks more manga over comics but for some reason this is the style i keep reverting too when i draw, i unashamedly love anime and manga anyways so it’s not a bad thing.
I do hope to get more varied in what i am drawing, hence the picture here of a young male and female, then an old person and it is a chibi but started off as a child lol
I am never going to be at the stage when I draw my own comics but it’s fun 🙂
I would actually love to write and letter a manga actually, maybe one day.
I won’t leave it so long the next time I promise.
