Over on Tough Pigs (muppet fans who grew up), I just got to be in a cool longer-then-usual interview with the writer on the project, the talented @kateordie! We discussed the new Fraggle Comic we’re making along with Henson movies, toys, Comic making process and Crossovers with Rescue Rangers, Adventure Time & Fraggles. You know the usual!
Toughpigs the site for Muppet and Jim Henson fans just put up a new interview of Kate Leth and I! Check it out! It goes very in depth! They are serious about their puppets!
Changing my to Boober Fraggle till this whole Fraggle Thing blows over!
Boober is not amused.
This Oct get my (and kateordie ) comic:
So I thought since this cover is up and making the rounds here’s a little bit of process behind making it. because there’s a bunch of stuff that needs to get done before I can even start on the final drawing.
Then take the idea they pick, and draw it out on a big big 11 x 17 piece of bristol! I have to send them the drawing at this point to see if they like how it came out.
Then I scan that picture into the computer and color on top of the drawing in photoshop using my wacom-cintiq (it’s very handy). In the end none of the lines are there anymore and it’s all done! (Well- I have to get that final color illustration approved as well, but THEN it’s done!)
GASP!! My comic Orphan Blade is now on AMAZON! Take a look and find out what Hadashi is so surprised about!
Here’s Mokey consoling poor Boober!
I’m hard at work on Fraggle Rock comics! First of which will be out in October!
You can preorder it at any comic store by giving them this code: AUG141175 (Or just asking for Fraggle Rock - Journey to the Everspring !)
Off to SDCC tomorrow morning! Although it’s a little sad this time around, since last year I got to meet Nicholas Almand the writer I was working with on Orphan Blade there at Comiccon. He was completely full of life and having a lot of fun and seemed so vibrant even though he was at the same time battling with cancer. A harsh reality that would claim his life a few months later.
So this time at SDCC I’ll be going, and he won’t be there. At least I know that the book that we worked on is going to come out later this year and the story itself concludes in a way that he would have wanted. I just wish he was there to give a highfive and a hug and celebrate finally finishing that book.
Ok Last one of these I swear (and also because the con starts in earnest tomorrow!)
Remember I’ll be on these panels!
