You all know that Barrie Potter and I have a short comic up at tor.com right now called To Eternity. A lot has happened since I first asked if we could do a piece about the end of the world and the last man and woman on earth. And while I can’t show you all the process work, what you’ll find here is a sample of the drawings that didn’t make it into the comic:
Well, after today I’m going to be like totally anathema to you guys. But anyway! Here’s a cover for Skyler White's Strongest Conjuration for tor.com. Big thanks to Irene Gallo, who’s been a champion lately and always.
I’m in the 2014/2015 Dellas Graphics FrogFolio Calendar. There are a few copies in circulation to Dellas clients, but the calendar will be available for sale to everyone in September. So, what month do you think I am? Thank you for the invite, AD Jim!
I’ve got a bit of a blog backlog (a bloglog?) to deal with just now, but this one for me is much anticipated and long overdue. Maybe you saw some of this stuff on Instagram between Thanksgiving and Christmas, or maybe you heard Irene Gallo tweeting about it in hushed tones. This is a quick overview of the cover and interior work for Mary Rickert's The Mothers of Voorhisville. I would love to make this a graphic novel. But a cover and a few spots ain’t bad for now. Go read it. Then, buy a pregnancy test. Big thanks to Irene and Mary!
The Things She Carried by Cara Hoffman for the NYT Op Ed, about the marginalized female Vet and the failure of our heroic archetypes to effectively describe women in combat roles. My thanks as always to my AD, Matt. Thanks are also due to Staff Sergeant Makenzie Lang, who was kind enough to react to this article and to provide me with reference for the multicam uniform that she wore during her second tour. I think this piece would have been very different without her help. So, Makenzie, and all the other veterans who I have yet to meet, thank you for your service.
