WHAT'S NEXT?

2007 is drawing to a close, and it's been a pretty chaotic year. I spent a good chunk of time working on someone elses project which hit a wall, the negatives of which have been left behind, and the positive results being a more refined approach to my art and a stronger focus on getting my own projects out into the world.

December saw the release of the first issue of my first project "Lonely Monsters", an ongoing comic series with a planned 5 year run. While getting LM off the ground I also did some DVD and set design work for Surface Tension's "EXIT" project (keep your eyes peeled for more info on that, the concept and the people behind it are all amazing). I'll be doing storyboard work with them in 2008 while continuing to release Lonely Monsters on a regular basis, along with a range of prints, t-shirts, and much more.

So to the people reading this who have encouraged and inspired me....thank you!

To those that did the opposite....thank you also, as sometimes the best lessons in life are learnt by watching others do the wrong thing ;-)

Some more art

Technical issues have kept me from updating so here are 2 pics to feast your eyes on.

1st is a reworking of one of my original LM designs that I can't seem to let go of :-)













2nd is a sexy little zombie killer that will be a regular character in the comic itself.

Postcard




A potential cover that will now end up on Cafepress as a postcard. Trying to decide on a final piece for the cover of issue one is a nightmare!

More images coming soon (including a few very sinister things).

Cover Ideas and other things


Here are 2 scrapped wrap-around covers, I'll probably use the images somewhere.

I think the format for Lonely Monsters is now finalised.



40 pages every 2 months =

28 comic pages +
4 page back-up story +
4 page sketchbook +
4 page essay by The Graveyard Tramp (http://www.myspace.com/graveyard_tramp)



This will be followed by a yearly collection of the main story.

And it's all looking to be on track for a december launch.
