Working on a piece in Manga Studio/Photoshop.
I love drawing Jo and Laurie. :)
Mattel signed off on the Ever After High graphic novel script I wrote! Yay!
Just got my first look at it today – Kaari’s work is lovely, as always!
Okay, here’s the deal: my SDCC 2012 con report is super late because I picked up a really nasty bug while bopping around the convention center. This bug left me sacked out on the couch for two weeks watching Buffy, Frontline, Nova, and MTV’s Teen Wolf (as the mood took me) while my body did its level best to forcibly evict my lungs and launch them into space. Seeing as it’s pretty difficult — some might say, damn near impossible — to draw while hacking up one’s lungs, I spent the NEXT two weeks playing catch-up between my day job and pencilling Jennifer De Guzman’s Womanthology story, “The Vesta” (she’s posted the first page of pencils on her blog – check it out!).
I expect to spend the remainder of the month painting the pages (XOXOXO Painter 12!), so there won’t be much in the way of a con report until September, when I can take some time to, oh, I dunno, eat and breathe and fun stuff like that. To make it up to everyone, I’m going to start my Sketch a Day personal challenge again, starting tomorrow. Yay, pretty pictures! Sketch a Day was really fun and motivating for me, and I’d like to see if I can keep it going for a full year.
Here’s my current signing schedule for SDCC 2012. There will be three Fraggle Rock signings and one for the Vampire Academy graphic novels. Here’s the current schedule:
Fraggle Rock signings @ the Archaia booth (#2635)
10:00 am – 11:30 am
2:30 pm – 3:30 pm
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Vampire Academy Graphic Novel Signing @ the Penguin Booth (#1117)
2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
For the Vampire Academy signing especially – please do come by! I’m a huge VA geek and I would love the chance to yap with other fans about Richelle’s books. I’ll probably drag along my sketchbook and see if I can doodle up a few more VA chibis.
I will update/tweet as I get more information.
Fraggle Rock has been nominated for a Harvey Award for “Best Original Graphic Publication for Younger Readers”! Please consider taking a moment and voting for us!
