Into the Past PT. 3

This week starts the last Lori Lovecraft story, Into the Past. When I originally did the book even though it was going to be printed in black and white, I did a full color job and simply converted it down to black and white images.  Since I have the capability to publish them in color now I'm printing the color pages in the book and the majority of the story that was done in black and white. This story started out as a two parter published in two issues of a comic. When the work was compiled a longer, third chapter was added to wrap up all the loose ends.

Don't forget to visit our archives on the right for any episodes of this or other stories that you've missed. And most of our stories are available at iVerse/Comics Plus for your enjoyment: (And our financial gain.) To open a new window: CLICK HERE

MACBETH PT. 2

MACBETH PT. 2


This was a job I did for Boy's Life Magazine several years back...and was an interesting one from start to finish. It was great to be  collaborating with  Shakespeare...but as I learned, not everything thinks he can't be "improved" upon. More on that story in an upcoming Vozwords post, our sister blog. I'll also be posting as much of the original pencil, thumbnail, color and black and white originals in that blog. One of the real pleasures of this job was having my old friend John Ott handling the color. (You can see at the bottom a sample of what I would give him as a guide.)









 Below are some examples of the planning that went into the job in the form of character designs, thumbnails, pencils, the finished ink artwork, and my color roughs. More on that in an upcoming Vozwords.
