Stay Busy

I’ve neglected my poor blog.  What’s crazy is that it’s not because stuff has been slow.  I feel like I’ve been running a marathon for the last 8 months.  But I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I’m just gonna ramble here…

SPECULATIVE RELATIONSHIPS

The book got printed, delivered, and read by our awesome backers.  I’m so proud of the work we did on this book.  It was so cool to see the pics our backers took with their copies:

SO COOL.

So we did a release party at the amazing Challengers comics and a signing at the cool Graham Crackers Comics.

But we have one more event coming up where you can see us and get a copy of the book!  Come see us on October 24th at Quimby’s Bookstore:

We’ll have the book up for sale soon online in both print and digital formats.  I promise to do another post when we get that together.

VICTUS #3

Man, I can’t wait for you all to see the new issue of Victus.  It has been a BEAST to get through, but I think it represents a big step in my work and hopefully some really intriguing turns in the story.  I’m neck deep in figuring out printing, but once I’ve found the solutions, I’ll put up a pre-order page (with some cool bonuses).  For now, here’s some peeks into the book:

FAN ART

I’ve still been doing some fan art for fun.  Here’s some Prophet:

And here’s some fanart from Spread, by Justin Jordan & Kyle Strahm:

Colors by my pal Gerald Proctor.  I would recommend you start picking up Spread, as this badboy might be making an appearance. 😉

FOOD

Sadly, one of the greatest places in Chicago, HOT DOUG’s, has closed.  It’s cool, as he chose to close, rather than being forced to because of low sales or rent or some other nonsense.  Doug’s was a special place that I frequented since college and always tried to take Chicago visitors to.  Doug said some awesome stuff about it in this interview, so Read It.

STUFF I LOVE

I’ve been really inspired by this stuff lately…

Grim Wilkins is doing some really cool stuff in Prophet, but in general rocks.  Check him out.

Marble man for site

Lando, of Decadence Comics, just had a compilation released from Breakdown Press called Gardens of Glass.  It’s the real deal.

REM by M.R. Trower is a super cool web-comic and I’m excited to see where it goes.

Liam Cobb.  Basically, everything Liam does is breathtaking.  He’s one to watch.

I finally started reading (for real) Hayao Miyazaki’s Nausicaa manga that my pal Dan let me borrow.  It be goooooood.

Speaking of Daniel Warren Johnson… his current storyline of Space-Mullet is his strongest work to date.  Get on board now!

That’s all for now.  I have a lot more to tell ya’ll, but my computer at home just had a major malfunction, so I’m sneaking this out at work.  Let me know how you’re doing out there!
