Spookytown Production Update

Man, I'm going blog crazy today. Look at all these posts, I don't know how I do it. Maybe because I'm too lazy or too busy to do this on some sort of regular schedule, then I dump a half a dozen on here in one day.

Anyway, just a quick update on how the production of my Spookytown graphic novel is going. It's going good. There. No seriously, I just finished the second draft, as seen here. The story has expanded from 60 pages to 66 pages since the first draft. A couple of scenes seemd rush before, so I fleshed them out. And I added one more scene to explain some things. My lovely wife and I are gonna give it another read through and then I may pass it on to a few friends to read, I'm no sure yet. But I think it's in pretty good shape. It's obvioulsy not gonna be the best comic book anyone's ever read because (and I'll repeat this to my grave) I am not a writer, I think it'll be a fun read.

Also, I've been doing a lot of sketching in preparation for drawing the darn thing. I've been trying to nail down all the characters before I start in order to keep them consistent throughout the book. I thought I'm share some here. Below are a bunch of ones I recently did. You can see the main characters Jack and Emma, also Jack's dad, his buddy Ben and couple of other folks too. Hope you dig 'em.

Fanboy TV Appearance

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to be the in-studio artist on the 3rd episode of the all new Fanboy TV. It's a live internet tv show that's taped in Dallas twice a week. They have the artist come on first and interview them. Then the artist goes off and creates a drawing while the rest of the show goes on. The guest after me (via webcam) was only Joe Quesada, no pressure right? Then artist comes back, participates in the "Sub of Flub" segment and then reveals the peice they created. And the cool thing is, they give away the artwork in a drawing of people from their message board.

Here is my interview segment.They have problems getting my mic going at first but it kicks in pretty quick.

Me participating in Sub or Flub.

Here's the reveal of the peice I created. They have technical troubles at first, the screen is stuck on their website, but it eventually comes up.

Below is the peice I created and a shot of me with the guys on the set.
