So far today

So far, today, I've inked one page of Jeremy and both penciled and inked two pages of Zayde Todt.If you don't know what these things are, don't worry, no one else does either.
These three pages are engineered to create a continuing scene. Originally, it was a single page, but I had so much fun drawing the tree branches that I wanted an additional opportunity to draw a few more pages' worth of it. I realized that the text for the first three pages could be spread over five, increasing the initial tension, and ... well, giving me a chance to draw more trees.
Sometimes folks ask me if I've ever been interested in working for Marvel or DC, and the answer is, you know, sure, but there are a coupla reasons I'm happy I don't. The first is that I really couldn't manage a monthly pace, to be perfectly honest, but the other is that you just don't have the freedom to, for an example, decide at the last minute to add two establishing pages to the beginning of the book when you've already got the whole thing scripted and laid out and the first page finished and about twelve pages penciled. I'm either too creative or too undisciplined (if not a little bit - or even a lot - of both) to work under an editor. Who'm I kidding, I'm too undisciplined. Still, I enjoyed drawing these trees.
Okay, that's probably it for sneak peeks, until I finish the book, or until I do another page that I think is awesome, which means probably another sneak peek in like a week.
