After a relaxing several days, things are picking up speed again. I’m in midst of working hard on “World of Payne” project with Tom Sniegoski, drawing few covers for Marvel, and writing “Skybourne”. Very busy week.
On the “Drawing Beautiful Women” book front, the crew at the Fleskes Publications are packaging up and mailing out the books at a nice and steady clip. The first big wave of books have been shipped out and the next wave of books will be shipped soon. So please be patient.
Picture of the day:
Here’s a work-in-progress/sketch of Star Wars #1 store variant cover for “Cards, Comics & Collectibles” comic shop in Reisterstown, Maryland. This issue with my cover will be out in January. “Cards, Comics & Collectibles” comic shop is the the only store that you can get Star Wars #1 with my cover. http://cardscomicscollectibles.com
This year’s comic convention season is officially over for me and I’m adjusting to the new norm. With my big Marvel project out of the way and awaiting my next assignment, I’ve been selective about my future projects.
Right now, I’m cleaning house organizing my work schedule by finishing up couple of independent covers (Shutter #7 by Joe Keatinge and Leila Del Duca, out in stores December 10th) that I’ve promised to friends, and making way for my creator-owned projects, World of Payne with Tom Sniegoski, and Skybourne. Both projects will be published 2015.
On the “Drawing Beautiful Women” Kickstarter front, Flesk Publications have hit the floor running. The first 1000 copies have been mailed out. This first wave of books should arrive in few days to all the Kickstarter pledgers. They are working around the clock shipping out several hundred copies per day, so be patient. Overall, things are chugging along smoothly and I couldn’t be more happier.
I had a great trip to California visiting the Flesk Publications headquarter in Santa Cruz. It was packed week of fun and work. I managed to sign all the “Drawing Beautiful Women” books and helped ready them to be mailed out. I did a store signing at Lee’s Comics in San Jose. I was also privileged to give an art lecture and drawing demo at the prestigious San Francisco Academy of Arts. Not to mention ate at some of the finest restaurants in the Bay Area. Very full week. Big thanks to John Fleskes and crew for making it a fun and productive week.
Now I’m back home again, back to the cold east coast weather and right back on the creator-owned projects saddle. I’ve been splitting my time between “World of Payne” and “Skybourne”. I’m enjoying them both immensely and can’t wait to finish them. Both projects will be out next year 2015. Here’s the latest “Skybourne” character design.
