To every thing there is a season, and I'm gathering steam. My good friend Lyndsey
finished the major revision of our fantasy novel, The Dark Captain
on Sunday, and I'm so honored to have been a part of the process. I look forward to creating illustrations of this world and the characters that populate it for many years to come.
Even as I write this, of course, she's resting and regaining her strength, eager to dive back into writing. And this taste of accomplishment is also driving me. See, that's the thing about finishing work - you like the taste of being done, but you miss the feeling of creation. Like eating the cookies you worked on baking.
So it's time to mix up some new cookie dough.
Drawing a comic has been a life dream of mine for a long time, but it was never enough to seek work on an established title. Oh no - I needed to start from scratch. To that effect, I'm working on two unrelated projects with some truly amazing collaborators. The first you're well aware of by now: The Dark Captain
graphic novel. The other is Dinosaur War
, a very exciting setting.
I've never drawn a comic, so I expect I'll be learning as I go and finding out the best ways to proceed. I can't wait to start!
