Home Stretching It (or "How I Spent My Summer Vacation")

I am, right now, on the home stretch of my current graphic novel project. Today and tomorrow I will be drawing and inking the last few pages of Little Robot. After that comes scanning, some editing, and a whole lot of coloring. Not to mention the cover illustration and some watercolor decorations.

So there's still a hefty amount of work to do, but the end is in sight and that's a good feeling.

Unfortunately, all this intense work has caused me to fall behind in the ol' blogging and that's a shame because I'm building up a hefty backlog of posts. I've got book news! Journal comics! More D&D art! Green Turtle fan art! Reflections on the studio of my dreams!

So stay tuned. Little Robot will soon be Morping and Jonking his way to the publisher and I'll be posting more stuff around here.

Any idea when we might be seeing Little Robot? (I know it'll be a very rough estimate!)

I think this book is scheduled for October of 2015. And I know it's a long way off, but the usual rule is that a book comes out aroudn a year after I turn it in.

On the bright side, the release of Julia's House is just around the corner!

I'm so very excited about the Little Robot book! (Also, the hilarity of captcha asking me "Please prove you're not a robot" on this comment will have me laughing all afternoon.)

Great info. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have.
