Whooo, been a while again. I gotta try to be more regular with this.
EDIT: Well, "Rottentail" was dropped by Arcana Studio, but it's not something I should have talked about in an open forum. I should have left off talking about it privately with the book's writer. I let my frustration get the better of me. I was disappointed, but I talked to the publisher and basically made peace with what happened. Time to move on. Thanks for the comments and support. It's much appreciated.
"Unimagineable" is coming up on the home stretch of pencils for the last issue. Levi Skeen
is inking the last of #2 as I write this, and Zachary Turner
has colored exactly half of the book. So things are chugging along nicely! I'm really proud of this whole book, from the premise and script by Tom Pinchuk
, pencils, inks, and colors, and I'm sure I'll love the letters when they're done.
I'm drawing a pitch for Michael "Phantom Jack" San Giacomo right now. I don't want to say too much about it, but it should be a ton of fun, and it should go to at least a few high profile publishers, as Mike's pretty highly-regarded.
Still working on "Tranquility". Fun, fun, fun, drawing people being mangled by mister B.I.G. Foot.
Also still working on "Winter War". Things seem to be going at least a little faster with it now.
Tom Pinchuk lent me the (nearly) complete "Metabarons", so I'm most of the way through those.
I'm slowly reading "Dune Messiah" and the second book of "Abarat". I love Clive Barker's fantasy epic so far, and I'd love to do something in the same vein in comics, eventually.
I saw "The Spirit" the other day, and was disappointed that it was so goofy. I expected some fun, slapstick moments, it being the Spirit, but it was too silly to be that enjoyable. The actors all did pretty well with what they had (I especially loved the beautiful and talented Sarah Paulson and Scarlett Johansson), but Frank Miller didn't really seem to know what he wanted out of the movie.
I'm thinking about trying to put together a pitch for a mini-series or graphic novel about the Hatfield/McCoy feud. It's local history and myth mixed together, and it hasn't been beaten to death, like 'Jack the Ripper'... Thinking about it.
I believe that's all for now.
