Some big news...
My friend Patsy Trigg (of Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer fame) had recently been doing some work with a producer from the AMC channel. That same producer owns her own magazine and has taken a bit of interest in my artwork. One of my old strips from the classic Bell County archives will be published in her next magazine issue, and I am being urged to finish the graphic novel 'Percy the Puny Poinsettia' which was commissioned by Patsy Trigg a few years ago. the two pages attached to this post are the first two inked pages of that graphic novel (posted with permission from Patsy herself, of course)
I've vowed to finish this graphic novel, working almost none-stop, as many hours in the day my body and mind will allow me. That being said, I'm letting everybody on here know that this month is going to be extremely busy for me. Please understand that, and please respect it. The graphic novel is sure to be published since Patsy gained these wonderful connections! and on top of that, Some of my other works being published to a magazine is enough motivation and reason for me be stingy with my time for the next few months.
I will also be working on two book-binding projects for my mother (another project that has become long overdue, which to my mother I truly am sorry) and as I work on that project I'll be documenting its production with pictures of the two journals and some text explaining the process of making them. This documentation will be published to my website and will be view-able once the journals are ready and finished. I plan to make these journals extra special, adding detail and other all sorts of purdy things to it as I go. This may be a two month project in itself, but it will be well worth it!
And for the sake of that producer (I've forgotten her name) she just won a Telly Award (which is kinda the equivalent of winning an Oscar, not as grand, but still really just as awesome imo!) So to her, I would like to publicly congratulate her on her achievement! I've seen the award up close and in person, its heavy and made of solid material. Its a very legit award, and I am kinda honored to have seen it in its physical glory.
Anyway, that's all I have for now. Enjoy the two inked pages from the Percy project! Yes, I am aware that's there's a few little errors in the spelling (and perhaps the illustration) but those will be fixed in Paint Shop Pro 7 as I digitally color them.
Wish me luck!
I'll be posting the two Percy pages to my account here for you guys to enjoy. Cheers!
