Buttocks’

BELATED BALTIMORE COMIC-CON CABOOSE

Oops. Found this as an unposted draft, so this is my final post for 2009. I was a guest of the Baltimore Comic-Con (thanks, Marc Nathan!). I manned my table and signed, sold and sketched for two days. One of the attendees commissioned me to draw “a big butt girl,” and this was the result. I like the way it came out, so let’s end the year on a big, shapely, butt. Happy New Year, everyone!

THE HELL OF IT

These might be the final sketches of 2009. Maybe not, but they’re probably the final ones I’ll post this year. These are character design sketches for the book I want to do set in Hell. I am hoping to finally find a home for this baby in 2010. I’ve wanted to do this story for many years, though its earlier outlines were quite different. The plot has finally gelled, so let’s hope that I finally set it to paper soon.

BOOKPLATE FEVER

Yes, folks, there’s not one, but two exclusive signed bookplates I’ve done for the upcoming (it’s at the printer!) Connective Tissue. One is for the publisher, Fantagraphics Books, the other for retailer Panel To Panel. If you want one of these bookplates to come with the book, order the one you prefer from Fantagraphics or Panel To Panel directly.

Tush

Spot illo for Connective Tissue. What can I say? I like tush. Nuff said.
