CINEMA SEWER COVER THUMBS

I’ve enjoyed the often filthy Canadian movie ‘zine Cinema Sewer for quite some time (especially issue #16, which was devoted in part to post-apocalypse movies). CS is a treasure trove of exploitainment for the cineast who enjoys some muck in their movie viewing. I was happy to oblige its publisher/writer/creator/cartoonist Robin Bougie with cover art for its “Film Noir” issue (coming sometime in early 2010). Here are some thumbnail sketches I did. I ended up going with a variation on the upper right-hand one (see my gallery page for the final art, or click here).

Cover Tease for FTA Collected

In March of next year, all the WFTers (Wait For Trade) will hopefully spring for the book collecting From the Ashes. I hope everyone will buy it, actually. As a creator, I sometimes feel a tingle of guilt when something I do comes out serialized and then I want people who already bought it to buy it again. But as a fan and consumer myself, I say, “Hey, I do it all the time.” So, guilt absolved. Anyway, here are a couple of rough thumbs of the cover, which will be a wraparound. I wanted to pay homage to the great “merry chase” posters that Jack Davis did in the Sixties and Seventies.


The Amazon listing has an incorrect page count (it will be longer, because of the nifty bonus section; details to come) and cover art. I guess this is a place-filler until I deliver the real cover art.

CONNECTIVE TISSUE THUMBNAIL SKETCHES

Most of the interior art in Connective Tissue (if you haven’t gotten your copy yet, for crying out loud, do! It’s now an insanely cheap 45% off on Amazon!) was done spontaneously on that page without advance thumbnail sketching. There were a few that required a bit of planning, though. Here are some thumbs for them.


MONKEYBICYCLE 5

Hey, all. Here’s the thumbnail sketch and final art for the cover of the upcoming “Dirty Humor Issue” of the literary magazine Monkeybicycle. I also have a story inside. Should be out in late December or early January.


RECESS PIECES THUMBNAILS, PART 1

Here’s the first of what might be a series of posts featuring some of my prep work. These are the first 20 pages of thumbnails for my graphic novel, Recess Pieces, which came out summer 2006.
