Wrapping it up

Well, I'll be out of the country for the next couple weeks. Since I won't be able to update, here's the last three pages of this story:

Now that's over, I'd love to hear what you thought of the complete story!

In case you're wondering why I'll be out of the country... well, my wife and I are going to Taiwan to pick up the baby girl we are adopting! If you want to see more about it you can check out the BLOG we have set up about her. We leave Wednesday and get back on June 9. You might not see as much artistic output from me for awhile, as I'll be a new dad! Oh well...

The battle rages on...

Page 6 is up... three pages left! They are all done and in the bag, so you don't have to worry about any delays. Hopefully, I can't get busy on Rook City again very soon...

Hey, one of our readers from Poland, Frapazoid, colored the last page just for fun. Check it out! I really dig how he did the backgrounds.

Schoolhouse comics

The newest page is up. I'm pretty happy with it. Check it out. Maybe leave a comment.

Been very busy with comics lately... only a few of which are mine. Almost all my classes are finishing up their comic book projects. My 8th grade classes always make a comic story this time of the year. We make up the main character together, they make up story ideas and side characters, I put it all together in a script (that's the hard part), and then everyone draws a page of the story. I always try to do a page in each of them. And then there are always the kids that move away in the middle of the project and need their pages finished for them.

My high schoolers also do a comic. They each create a two page story with no dialogue or narration. The results are always varied, but this year I got some of the best results ever from some very talented kids. I'm trying to encourage them to make more comics on their own... showing them how we do ours.

And then there's my afterschool cartoonist club. They made their own little anthology and we're getting it printed up just like our books, color cover and everything. They're gonna freak out when they see the finished product. I hope.
