Back From the Woods
So, #12 will be the final issue of Snarked! I'll be sorry to see the Walrus and Carpenter go off into the sunset, though I'm happy that the story I originally set out to tell will reach its natural conclusion. I've had an absolute blast working on the series (it's really been the first time in my life I've been able to make a living working on my own stuff for more than a few weeks at a time) and I'd love to revisit the characters one day soon. It looks as if sales on the book collections will be the deciding factor on whether or not I'll get the chance - so please vote with your wallets! And tell your friends!
available for pre-orders now.
I'm also writing something else for IDW. I hope I can talk about that soon. Right now, let's just say that it's something more in the action-adventure line.
I'm going to be illustrating a book. A proper book, with words and everything. That won't be out until Christmas 2013, but I'll be working on the drawings later this year.
I've got more stuff in the pipeline for IDW, as well - drawing this time. Just a single issue of something. (Shh.)
And I'm working on a new creator-owned idea right now - it's not quite there yet, but I feel I'm onto something. I'm going to do a three-page story to "take the idea for a walk", as it were, for David Lloyd's new online anthology, Aces Weekly - and I guess I'll take things from there if it works out. For now, I'll just say I hope you like hats.
To close out, here are some sketches I did at the Baltimore Comic Con last week, which was really wonderful (even though I didn't win any of the Harvey Awards I was nominated for - Kate Beaton deservedly winning a couple of them instead). Even so, I had a great time and I hope I can get back there again next year.
