If any writers happen to swing by here, I’m sure you’ll all agree with me when I say there’s not much better than getting new art pages in your inbox. It’s one of the most exciting things about the process of creating comics. I love the process of bouncing off ideas, brainstorming, writing, but that moment when you see that page and your idea has come to life, wow there just are no words for it. I feel like a kid on Christmas everytime. It never gets old. I can only imagine how awesome it must be to be one of these huge creators working on multiple projects who is always getting pages in.
This week I got an amazing Page 8 (of our 10 page pitch) from Hannah. She is doing a great job and we are getting that much closer to the end. I am very excited for Page 10, it will be a beautiful splash page and the one I’ve been most excited to see since we started this. Then Thomas will begin lettering and designing the pitch.
I also got a pinup from my good friend Jason Gurley for the book I am doing for Gia’s birthday. It’s a really cool image of Gia in her Bear costume floating over some trees, hanging on to some balloons. I’ll post it soon enough. Also for Gia’s book, artist Mike Roll sent over some rough sketches of a handful of pages and they look awesome. I am so excited to see this come to life and I know this is going to be a special thing for my daughter. Once we get some more pages completed I’ll put some more art up here.
I’ve also started working on a potential new pitch with a new artist. We are taking an old idea from the Saint James days and going to try and re-work it a bit. Waiting for character designs to make sure the artist is the right fit and then we’ll go from there.
If there are any artists dropping by, I am always interested in working with new people. I have a few ideas that need artists but I also really loving brainstorming and coming up with ideas, so feel free to hit me up if you’re interested in working on a project.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
