Snatcher Bodies! TKMGK! Monkeyface!

As 2010 draws to a bloody close, we are proud to present to you another project born of too much sugar and bent brains! Adam Barnett and I have been working closely together the last few months on a project called Hero Action Persons. It's an epic story that's an incredible amount of fun to draw. I'll be sharing more about it soon, but right now I've got to keep pretty tight lipped about it. While we've been hitting the drawing boards on that one, I came across an old project called Holey Moley. I was never really happy with my writing on it, so I asked Adam if he could re-do all the word balloons on it. For fun I told him I'd only send him one page at a time so he'll never really know what's hitting him. It's a great experiment, plus I just like to torture him. So Adam's re-christened it Snatcher Bodies and so far we've put up the first 2 pages on Drunk Duck under our I2D Studios banner. I think we'll be updating that once a week. Take a looksee and let us know what you think!

In other news, Luc Herbots keeps blasting out the awesome TKMGK pages. Check out this slice from page 20:

We are getting close to Page 30 which will be the end of Issue 1. I'm getting excited to break out the script pages and start polishing up Issue 2 now that I know Luc is along for the ride. When I began Issue 1, I was planning on drawing it myself, but then too much stuff was going on and I couldn't keep up with it. It's awesome that Luc has taken it over because it's turned into something better than I had envisioned.

And then there's the Monkeyface:

Sam has given me the script up until page 60 now, and I've got about 10 more pages to draw and then I'll be there too. We're planning on taking this one to 180 pages, so 60 will be a big milestone. In Zuda language, this would have been the end of Season One. In the next few months, I've plotted out my schedule at the school I work at and am ready to devote even more time to Monkeyface. So 2011 is going to be an incredible year for all these projects methinks.
This is OUR TIME! (Goonies Voice.)
