Wooden Iguana
March 30, 2007

Well, it's been a little quiet around here because I've been drawing so very much lately. Here's the cover to the comic book I've been so diligently working on ... new pages will be posted over in my ComicSpace pages.

Ahhh, back to the days of elementary school and that HUGE rocketship slide and jungle gym thing we used to have ....

Anyhow, the rocketship playground equipment was sketched in pencil first, scanned and then I used Photoshop to colour over the top. The rest was done in Illustrator. Was a very fun project ... but I'm really glad that I'm not using that particular process for the rest of the comic book. It just takes too dang long to do. The rest of the comic will be black and white (a splash of colour now and again). If you're curious, head on over to the ComicSpace pages and read the prologue. It's short and explains the general direction of the comic.

I've got a page and 2/3rds inked already and I should be posting at least once a week a full new page.

Fun times!
