Okay, so I'm back from my travels for now. Falling into place over the last couple of weeks are details of my next foregn sojourn - to the almighty San Diego Comic Con - which I'd been expecting to avoid this year, but Boom! Studios wouldn't take "no" for an answer, bless 'em. Now it looks like I'll be there at the Boom! booth for five days straight (time to grow a small beard!). I'll be drawing $20 "sketch covers" during that time... so I've got a month to find some drawing media that works on comic book covers. My sketches are traditionally on something with a bit more tooth to it - the few times I've sketched on anything that glossy have been, let's say, challenging - so that's something to sort out before I go.
(Thanks to Derrick Cantrell for the scan!)
Meanwhile, I've essentially just been scrambling to get back on schedule since I got home. My Doctor Who ten-pager is in the can, and I'm right now writing issue #5 of Thor the Mighty Avenger (just seen Chris Samnee's cover to that one - glorious!) and drawing Muppet Show #9, both of which are going to take a few late nights to get done on time. But I'm on top of it, like the grizzled pro with no social life that I am.
