Midnight Special

Here's a rough panel from a page I'm working on for the Perhapanauts Special. Nothing exciting, really, just sharing.

Rock and Roll Creation

Chris Beckett gave me a peek at one of the UFO pages that has been coloured by Osmarco Valladao. Loved it and wanted to share a bit of it without showing too much. So....

Panel progression time, again! Follow the creation of a panel from chicken scratch to final form. Well maybe not "final" form, it still needs to be lettered... but you get the idea.

Dude (Looks Like A Lady)

A quick warm up sketch of some dude skulking. Ink on paper.

Working on a cover for the UFO Anthology from Ape Entertainment and penciling pages for the Perhapanauts Special. Is it bad then that my hands hurt...

Running Dry (Requiem For The Rockets)

The ink is barely dry on this one. The UFO anthology Ape Entertainment is putting together is in need of a cover or two and I thought I'd throw some ink at paper and see what resulted. I'm not very confident that this will make the short list as a possible cover but I like it, nonetheless.

It still needs to be coloured, but I don't have the time to attempt that. The Perhapanauts pages will be needing my penciling attention as soon as I get the thumbs up on the layouts.

Another One Bites The Dust

Flashback Friday, engage. (said in my Jean-Luc Picard voice)

This a page from one of my high school sketchbook. One a the many examples of me working on my storytelling. Sadly, I never finished the tale.

Love Labours On

The UFO story, "Life Is Funny", that I was drawing for Chris Beckett has been handed to the colourist and letterer. I think I did some nice work on it and I'm looking forward to seeing it going up on the Ape Entertainment webcomic site, soon. When it does, I'll make sure to mention it here and you all can see the fruits of our labour. Should be good.

Here is another panel progression image of one of the panels from page 3 of "Life Is Funny". You can see how the image went through a few changes in each stage to get to where it is. Hope you dig it.

Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing

Yeah, I know. Over 2 weeks with no update. Bad, bad, bad. We shan't speak of it again, agreed? Good.For the past week, I've had the Perhapanauts script (penned by Scott Weinstein and Todd Dezago) clipped to my drawing table as I've worked through the layouts for the entire 22 pages. I'm still not quite done, but what I have drawn is not bad. I found that the layouts were pretty loose when I started and then got tighter and tighter as I progressed towards the "big finish". A few more pages to go and then I can focus on tightening them up to ink.

Oh, and there will be a post tomorrow.
