Working For Monday!

That's right folks! The mystery project I alluded to in my previous post has been announced at San Diego Comic Con during Mark Waid's panel on Digital comics. In case you missed that event it is called 'Working for Monday.'

It is the story of a long suffering assistant to a super-villain who may just be trying to take him down from the inside! Lori Matsumoto is writing it (and helping me narrow down my designs to get just the right look.) It is really fun so far; I've thumb-nailed the first two installments. I love the story, the characters and the scenarios. It's going to be great! It will start coming out soon via thrillbent.

Nostalgia Cake!

My Fitness trainer Paul (yes I have one) asked if I could draw a design/scene for the top of a cake, to be served at he and his sister's shared birthday celebration. It didn't have to be fancy because it was going to be printed in edible frosting. He sent me a little rough sketch that featured a few golden oldies of the 80's which represented their shared childhood fun.

I did my best to elaborate on that sketch in the shortest possible time-frame; I used the same technique for the final image that I do for storyboarding which involves composting of carefully chosen imagery and then essentially tracing out only the right lines. It took about 4 hours to compose it, draw all the characters and color it. It was a ton of fun.
