Bad News/Good News (kind of)

I applied for this Graphic Novel residency in Florida where I would have been studying under Craig Thompson, but I didn't get it. :(

Man, I'm bummed. Let's face it, I'll never have an opportunity like that again. Though I guess if you look at the comics I've made so far, and my level of ability, it's probably not much of a surprise.

The good news, though, is that I'll now have time to start working on a new comic project! I've been working on the story for years, waiting until I felt like my writing and drawing abilities were better, and I think I'm kind of close to being an okay enough artist to somewhat pull the comic off. I guess we'll see.

It won't be starting until November, so I can give myself plenty of time to do it right, but here's some concept art of three of the characters. As you can probably tell, the story deals with Greek mythology. That's all I'll say for now.

Meanwhile, my webcomic 'Crazy Duck' has once again returned from one of its school year hiatuses! Check it out!
