New Cauldron Page

Alright, lets start trying to draw some conclusions to all this foreshortening I've been teasing you with. But first a few more questions....

New Cauldron Page

The first part comes to a close with a mysterious figure in black and, 
wait, what's that? Foreshadowing? Oh, my! 
The box of worms Livi has opened is about to get messier! 
Stay tuned!

Tonight's soundtrack provided by Soma.fm.  Check em out!

New Blog Page - Sketchbook Stuff

Scans from my sketchbook. These are mood exercises, drawn directly in brush pen while waiting, talking, watching TV, soccer practice etc.

New Cauldron Page

Livi finds another strange object... 

Drawing all the dead twigs got to be a bit meditative.... This page was neat the end of the initial push for the first 25 pages. I really felt in a groove in the pages leading up to and following this one. Most of the drawing and inking and a chunk of the toning of the past 5 and the next 2 were done in a mad rush in a weekend where I was alone: 
Wife at a Chicago bachelorette party and kids away at Grandparents.
 It was the best and worst weekend. Pure comic making and pure loneliness for the people that make your life really mean something.

New Cauldron Page

The story starts really picking up here. I've had a great time trying to pack as much moodiness as I can into these pages. 

I created a Pandora station that is cchock fulla moody, dramatic, soundtrack music that has become the go to sound while I work on this.
It started as Boards of Canada and Bruno Coulais, then added the Album Leaf and Danny Elfman and always Ennio Morricone.

I'm going to be here this summer and am trying to get this plus about 24 more pages ready to print up. I'd love any input and if you click on over here, I truly appreciate it!
