Long Time No Post, OR, LUCKY IN LOVE Vol. 1







Hello, Blogosphere!

....
so, what's new?
Everybody good? You workin'?

I haven't been here in a long time, huh?
Sorry, I've been busy.

Actually, very busy. These days I'm designing on Genndy Tartakovsky's new Cartoon Network production, SYMBIONIC TITAN, which is a terrific job. And also, I've been drawing a graphic novel.
I'm pretty proud of the novel, really. I've been working on it for a while. My good friend, George Chieffet wrote the narrative, and I lettered and drew the whole thing. In fact, I'm still lettering and drawing the whole thing. But I need to get it done soon, as the good folks at FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKS (h'lo, Kim!) have promised to publish it. It's due to hit bookstores in June of 2010, and in fact, can be pre-ordered right this minute on Amazon.com.
Please to look at my drawings. They're all from chapter one, the first of three in volume one (volume two will be published sometime around 2013).
Enjoy, and please let me know what you think!

Also, my apologies to folks that have written interested in commissions and artwork---unfortunately, my schedule has been quite dense, and I no longer find the time to draw side projects. Of course, there's probably always time during the day to properly and politely respond to your requests, and if you had written and did not hear back from me, I regret any inconveniences I may have caused you.
Thanks for your patience, everyone!

Great news—I was afraid your beautiful drawings were lost to the world of comics for good.
