...it's been a while...
I'm waiting for a new script, so in the meantime I thought that I would attempt to try some of the Sketch Challenges issued by the Temple of Cartoon Mojo. I started with a standard pencil and ink drawing for Scott Pilgrim, then decided to take a stab at drawing with a wacom tablet for the Iron Man sketch. yikes.
Take a peek.

"Just a quick note to let you know that you can now watch Adventures Into Digital Comics in its entirety on imdb right here: http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0377332/"
This video has images from the first issue of Cryptopia - penciled by me, inked by John Lowe - during some of the interview portions with Ben Raab.
One of my colleagues, inker/professor Roy Richardson, is mentioned in the credits.

My daughter Ali was Supergirl, obviously, for Halloween this year. Pilar found a big kid's costume at a garage sale and my mom reworked it to Ali size. She had a blast all day, despite some initial tears.

Fall quarter has started and in addition to my administrative duties, I'm teaching one class. I'll be inking that previously posted Phantom work at night and on weekends...which is when I typically draw.
I don't have a lot of time for personal projects that I'd like to develop and pitch. So what I've done is take 8 sketchbooks and label them for each project I'd like to develop. Everyday when I leave work I'll grab a different sketchbook and work as I ride the train home and then back to work in the morning. This gives me about 40 min. total once every eight days to work on these projects. I just started doing this, tomorrow will be day 8 and represent the first full cycle. I think it's been pretty useful so far, I feel like I'm making progress on each of the projects which is a good feeling. I'll try and post as more work gets accomplished.
Website development is at a stand-still for now. Formatting the content is what's slowing me down. I need an intern.
...or a government bail out of a bazillion dollars...that would be good too.
Here are some preview pencils for a special Phantom project from Moonstone. I don't think that I can say anything more than that...I'm not sure if they've announced it yet.
Yes, the woman in the third image will get hair.
These are originally penciled with a non-photo blue pencil and will be inked by me. That's why these are more loose than the pencils for the Worlds of Dungeons and Dragons book which will be a scanned pencil book - no inks involved.

Got a few rooms in the house painted this past week, ran off to Chattanooga with the family for a day and a half last week as well.
No new progress on personal projects and website progress is moving slowly along.

In other news, I penciled and inked this Phantom and Mandrake cover for Moonstone Books' Phantom annual...I have no idea when it ships. This one was colored by the multi-talented Nolan Woodard.

Cryptopia is a sci-fi/mystery that follows an intrepid group of scientist, lead by the main character, Dr. Shannon Palmer, to a recently discovered island where bizarre creatures roam free. Written by Ben Raab, drawn by me and inked by a talented variety of folks, colored by the incomparable Lee Loughridge, has lots of eye-candy, thrilling adventures and great inter-personal character pieces. You'll be able to grab it on Wowio soon.
After I penciled these, Ben sent 'em off to John Rauch for the finishing touch.
That's it for now! I hope that everyone going to San Diego has a blast!
