I did a little experimenting with some new watercolors by painting the ink drawing I did of the scene from Moonlight.  I feel the version with digital coloring (below) is more successful, but it was nice to try my hand at a different medium.

Jerusalem: The Processes Behind Making A 380 Page Graphic Novel

It’s been over a year since we finished work on the graphic novel Jerusalem! The book was recently released, and I was reminded that I have yet to document all the work that went into the creation of the epic 380 page story. Since this book was more than three times the length of a […]

My Twisted Savage Dragon Funnies short story comes out this Wednesday, and my editor, Michel Fiffe, suggested that I do a post to explain the process I used this time around.

Here’s recent illustration I did for the Getting Even with Shakespeare production which has been selected for the New York Fringe Festival.  While the above image is for a postcard, it was originally designed for the festival’s website (color) and brochure (grayscale) which required a very small icon.  The size restrictions proved to be an […]
