FA 13 and longer book

Well, it seems that Chris and I rock so hard they want to extend our book to 160 pages. That means a lot more art. Along with the DVD that will come with it it's going to be a sweet deal for art fans.

Artists this week

The late Keith Parkinson. One of the coolest guys I've ever met in this business.

and Haccan from Japan.

Who is John Galt?

FA 12

Just finished my first full page painting of Hachi. Not much more to add there, just thought it was a nice milestone.

Artists this week

This guy is just ridiculous, Jim Murray.

And from the Philippines, one of my favorite comic artists, Leinil Francis Yu.

Reading Pluto by Naoki Urasawa. It's a reimagining of an Astro Boy story by Osamu Tezuka. It's really excellent so far. Kind of feels like an Asimov robot story.

FA 11

Man, I've been doing this for 11 weeks already. Chris and I are busting our butts on the book, and time is really flying by. It snowed here in Chicago yesterday. Snow in April sucks.

Artists this week.



Ittoku, one of the artists I was fortunate enough to meet on my trip to Tokyo. I was humbled to receive an original page from his sketch book, which he was kind enough to personalize to me. When I get the time I think I'll scan it and put it up here for you all to enjoy. He was really a great guy.

You know how some movies get talked about as being the greatest thing ever, and then you watch it again and remember why. I watched Akira again the other night. I probably haven't watched it in ten years. It truly is a mind blowing piece of animation.
