I have been posting recently about having a number of comics projects ready for artists.
First up is "The Witchwood".
The entire script for a 128 page graphic novel is written, and I'm looking for an artist to work with me on it as a creator owned project. The concept here is that the forest itself is more our protagonist than the young hunter trying to claim it as his hunting ground.
The setting is in the Dark Ages (or earlier) in a mysterious forest, long forbidden, with standing stones and other mysteries under centuries of growth. The only human characters are a young hunter, a mysterious ghostly girl, and an old farmer. Aside from the
I've been gradually getting back into writing, after far too much time away. Creating makes me feel more alive.
Today, I turned my one-shot FAILSAFE into a series outline and pitch for a series.

Once the pitch-- full outline, first issue script, 5 pages fully complete-- was ready, we'd pitch it, but keep wor
A week ago, I went back to the studio for the first time in two years. Two years.
Recently, I started writing again and lined up a couple of interesting comics projects.
It feels good to be alive again. It's interesting to discover the power of finding a muse.
