Production Update – Page 26 and Counting

September 29, 2008

After spending a day at the Baltimore Comic Convention, seeing friends, and meeting a lot of new people, I returned home to some illustration work and the devlopment of some new page art. I am at page 26 and am half way through 2 other pages. I am a bit off schedule, but should be able to catch up on things come next weekend as I have a more time to myself to bang out some pages.

The comic con was pretty cool – Jim Lee was the headliner, Mike Mignola and Tim Sale were signing, and a number of other big-name illustrators were showing their stuff. Zuda had a very minor presence in the form of flyers, the sampler booklet we’ve seen online in a pdf format, and the postcards. There was a small DC booth, but both Marvel and DC had a small showing at this years con. I guess Baltimore was a low priority on their schedules this year, while the convention itself had a larger turnout than last year. It was nice walkig around talking to folks – many who had heard of Zuda, and a few who’ve submitted or plan on submitting comics.

Early next week I will have some more concept pieces.

Seventh in the Sketches Series

September 24, 2008

I kind of wish I hadn’t started to number these. This could get ugly. Could you imagine “Two Hundredth and Fifty-Seventh in the Sketches Series”?! Anywho – no details about this one. I will with any luck have some more goodies up this weekend as well as a production update on Sunday.

Sixth in the Sketches Series

September 19, 2008

Here’s Sienna. I can’t, once again, say anything about her.  And once again – just a concept sketch folks…things change…these are just some of my ramblings and first coffeeshop doodles I produced when conceptualizing the characters and look of the story. Lot of women in these first sketches hunh? I throw some of the male sketches in to balance things out in posts to come.

Update on production – Page 20 and counting…

September 7, 2008

It’s been a while since I’ve made an art update, soo… I am at page 20 now. It is coming along nicely, and I took a bit of time to work on well, this blog, in an effort to get more info out to people about the comic. I have been a little leary about posting anything live, as I have wanted to keep things as much on the DL as possible as to not hurt my chances or disqualify me from the Zuda competition should Azure get accepted. Thankfully a few kind Zuda winners have informed me it is fine to post something of this nature so long as actual pages and mention of being in a competition prior to it going live are not posted here.
