Projects at the End of 2016

Although not the best year for politics, this has been a great year for getting comics done.
First off, congrats to Andrew Taylor and Galaxy Girl for yet another successful Kickstarter. Will be fantastico to see my art for "A Shrink Ray- Reversed" all printed up next to the other awesome stories by Andrew and a slew of outstanding cartoonists, included in these two issues. Thanks to all who supported and helped spread the word!
I've been lucky to work with WP Comics on a bunch of fun projects this year. For their Christmas themed horror anthology 'Chronicles of Terror' I worked with my Go-To Colorist Chris Allen, on a strange little ditty starring Scrooge McCluck. It's the Christmas Carol you've always wanted, except with Hell, the Devil, Cthulhu and Charles Dickens rising from the grave. This is what happens when they let us do whatever we want. There's also stories in there from my buddies Hunter Eden, James Johnson, and Mar Carper among many other outstanding tales. You can get the printed book or digital download here!
I also got to do the cover for WP Comics' scifi/fantasy anthology 'Tales from Orbit.' Chris Allen once again lent his magic colors to this angry Santa-bot. Kim Roberts is the editor there and it's been fun working with her and WP Comics owner Mark Fluharty. They've given my Cluck character a lot of opportunities there and I've been really thankful for that. Included in this Christmas issue is a feature interview where I Cluck about Cluck and other Cluckness projects in the future. You can get the print or digital issue here.
Speaking of Cluck, we've got a ton of fun stuff planned for this guy. I'm currently drawing a parody of the upcoming "100 Acres of Hell" movie starring Jeb Clucker. Working from a script by Kim and that coloring guy Chris, we're having a blast. Many hens shall die.
Speaking of Kim and Chris, keep on the lookout for 'Toothville' a fun tale they wrote about toothfairies, evil dentists, and swamp witches. Here's the first page with Chris' poppin' colors:
And FINALLY ? did I forget anything? Work on Shane Lewis' crazy fun 'Irregular Shop' continues. Chris has just finished the colors on Issue #1 and we're ready to start submissions. I'm really happy with how this one is turning out. Only 30 more pages to draw and we've got a complete Book 1! Onwards we fight on!
Thank you to all of my amazing collaborators, and thanks most of all to my patient wife and family and friends. Here's to an even more productive 2017!
