Where has Ben Been?

I haven't abandoned this old blog. No, not yet!

Here's a quick peek at my desk:

I've been in heavy production mode lately on the second (as-yet-untitled) volume of Mighty Jack. It's another 200+ page graphic novel and, now that it's all written, over the next few months my working hours are all focused turning tiny sketched out pages into finished art. It means turning little gestural sketches like this:

...into finished panels like this:

All of this is an awful lot of drawing in a relatively short time and it doesn't leave much time for Not-So-Great-Pumpkins and other fun side adventures.

The book is due right around the time that spring turns into summer (a few days before my birthday). And a handful of days later my next picture book, Nobody Likes a Goblin, will be released. I'll be talking more about that book as we get closer to June. Trust me, there will be goblins everywhere.

And for those who want to catch me in person, I will be doing some book related travels over the summer. I'll post more about those soonish, but for now the big news is that I'll be a special guest at this year's San Diego Comic Con! I haven't been to SDCC before and I know it's crazy and crowded and a zoo, but I really am very excited.

Will I see you there? Let me know in the comments!

Hi Ben,
Glad to get news from you and looking forward to read Mighty Jack in french, to be published by Rue De Sèvres!

Lizzy said...

Hey, Ben!

This is one of your old Christendom friends from waaaaay back; Liz (Flagg) Swope. Saw some info about you and thought I'd try to get in touch! I have a piece of literature I'm working on, and wanted to ask your advice. Been praying for direction, and wanted to talk to someone who knows what they're doing. I love the art I've seen of yours! I'm really proud of you. Keep it up! Hopefully I'll figure out how to reach you better (never commented on a blog before). God bless you and your fam.
