Klimt's Clownfish



I've been noticing people asking where the little stories for much of the art have gone, and I'll tell you. I'm currently working on a graphic novel for Penguin Dial Books. This is wonderful and fabulous and I'm terribly excited, but it also means that I have to turn out 80 comic pages of varying complexity in six weeks. And it's all cute...narrative...stuff.

I am so bloody sick of cute narrative stuff right now that I could chew through solid lead.

So the art I've been doing, as you might have noticed, is sort of...decorative. It exists to go "Hey! Cool-looking!" There is no cute little story because my cute little story gland is under contract to a large publishing house. So, until this book is done, you get fish and gold leaf.

Still, bein' me, I had to include a least a little bit of text on the piece. I imagine in this post-Nemo world that the clownfish are a little sick of being "cute."
